Bare metal cloud provider Hivelocity has announced it has selected Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge Platform, to extend its bare metal cloud to the service provider edge in 36 US cities.

The company started deployments in Pittsburgh and Atlanta. Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge platform combines multi-tenant colocation with software-defined interconnection and networking.

The Kinetic Edge platform offers infrastructure for delivering low-latency applications, according to the company.

"Hivelocity is singularly focused on building out the most comprehensive bare metal cloud for edge computing," said Richard Nicholas, SVP, Strategy and Corporate Development at Hivelocity.

"To do this, we chose to partner with Vapor IO, as its Kinetic Edge platform provides the essential citywide infrastructure needed to deploy at the edge.

“Through this partnership, we're aggressively rolling out our bare metal edge cloud to the top 36 US cities, making us one of the most comprehensive platforms for deploying edge workloads."

Through its joint core-to-edge solution with Digital Realty's PlatformDIGITAL, Vapor IO said it enables cloud-to-core-to-edge applications, including 4G & 5G networks, distributed AI, IoT, robotics, autonomous vehicles and augmented reality.

By adopting Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge platform, Hivelocity has been able to deploy its bare metal edge cloud, bringing infrastructure-as-a-service to these edge applications.

"Hivelocity's cloud resources on Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge platform dramatically accelerates the deployment of edge-to-core applications and shifts the cost structure from CAPEX to OPEX," said Cole Crawford, CEO and Founder at Vapor IO.

"We're thrilled to be chosen by Hivelocity to extend its bare metal cloud to the edge. The combination of Hivelocity at-scale edge cloud deployments and Vapor IO's nationwide Kinetic Edge platform will create the essential infrastructure upon which developers can deploy and operate next generation edge applications." 

Hivelocity, Vapor IO and Digital Realty have also collaborated to showcase an edge-to-core bare metal platform that gives developers the availability to deploy edge-to-core workloads on Hivelocity's bare metal edge cloud, first in Atlanta.

Hivelocity provides bare metal cloud and edge computing solutions to businesses from over 130 countries worldwide.

The Hivelocity platform enables users to deploy bare metal cloud servers in 31 edge locations in cities across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
