Here's What Data Centers for Edge Computing at the Tower Look Like

Austin-based Vapor IO this year has been busy deploying some of the world’s first wireless tower-connected data center networks for edge computing in multiple US cities. The company has its own ultra-dense pod design for housing IT hardware, called Vapor Chamber, its own shelter design for the pods, and a host of software for managing this highly distributed infrastructure.

Its plan is to sell colocation services in its edge data centers to telcos, hyperscalers, and enterprises that need distributed compute power close to where data is generated. More about the company, its technology, and business model here.

Check out this gallery to see what Vapor IO’s data center infrastructure for edge computing looks like. (All photos courtesy of Vapor IO.)
