VMware and Vapor IO collaborate on a multi-cloud service grid to help developers and service providers deliver custom grid services on demand.
The main goal of the collaboration is to simplify the deployment of distributed 5G systems and real-time applications by weaving cloud and edge environments into a unified framework that enables resources to be distributed over a common infrastructure as required.
