VMware and Vapor IO have announced that they will jointly build a multi-cloud services grid to simplify the provision of distributed 5G systems and real-time applications and to reduce costs.
The collaboration includes the integration of the VMware Telco Cloud Platform with the Vapor IO Kinetic Grid platform, which enables developers and service operators to create grid services on demand. It aims to combine multiple cloud and edge environments into a unifying framework that can then provide resources for needs-based use across a common infrastructure.
“Today’s Internet is too static, too isolated, and too unpredictable to deliver latency-sensitive applications like immersive games,” said Kaniz Mahdi, vice president of advanced technologies at VMware.
“What we need instead is a grid that can virtualize and aggregate edge resources across multiple clouds and locations for any set of latency and jitter constraints at any time.”
