Arrcus and Vapor IO lay the foundation for a “digitally pairable” Internet with unparalleled network and infrastructure observability

Vapor IO’s Synse software will be integrated with Arrcus’ ACE platform on network switches to create a new observability data plane to improve economy, reliability, performance and environmental sustainability of Internet

LAS VEGAS, September 29, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vapor IO, developers of the Kinetic Grid platform, the world’s first Open Grid network to deliver the cloud economy with on-premises performance, and Arrcus, the implementation software company large-scale network and a leader in cloud-to-edge network infrastructure, today announced a new partnership to bring together Vapor IO’s Synse software, an integrated tool for creating real-time network observability data. real, with Arrcus’ ACE platform on network switches. This creates a new observability data plane for large-scale networks, improving the economics, reliability, performance, and environmental sustainability of the Internet.

Today’s Internet is a “best effort” system cobbled together with equipment and network infrastructure from thousands of vendors. Without agreed standards for deep infrastructure observability, it is impossible to create high-fidelity models of the Internet to provide highly automated responses to actual or predicted changes in network conditions, such as through the AI and machine learning.

Large, complex systems in the physical world are already benefiting from digital twin technologies to improve performance, reduce operating and repair costs, and increase availability. Through this partnership, Vapor IO and Arrcus are enabling a “digitally pairable” Internet that will transform how networks work.

“To create an Internet that adjusts and repairs itself, data must be part of an observability-action feedback loop,” said Shekar Ayyar, President and CEO of Arrcus. “We are excited to partner with Vapor IO to bundle their Synse server with the Arrcus ACE platform on network switches, enabling developers and operators to create digital twins with network observability. This unique offering will automate network management and will enable customers to meet business objectives and improve the customer experience.”

By implementing an observability data plan and creating digital twins of the network, we can expect to see many improvements, including:

  • Performance: New classes of applications as a service delivered from the Internet, including computer vision, cloud robotics, smart city services and smart retail, require unprecedented levels of observability to deliver the necessary levels of performance from the Internet.

  • Reliability: SLA-backed services require a real-time view of network conditions to maintain promised service levels. These services must also be able to create predictive models of performance so that SLA challenges can be mitigated in advance.

  • Automating: Deploying and maintaining complex network systems requires continuous automation with a high degree of precision. High-fidelity observability provides the data needed to build autonomous systems.

  • Environmental sustainability: Power-saving systems, including carbon-aware schedulers and network traffic management systems, require a high degree of observability to optimize power saving while maintaining performance goals.

  • Resource optimization: Making the best use of finite resources requires fine-grained observability to accurately model trade-offs in real time. For example, a company may have a complex set of business rules to balance performance, reliability, environmental sustainability, and cost, which can only be enforced with the right data in hand.

“Our industry needs observability, otherwise the internet will never successfully support real-time systems like 5G radios and cloud robotics,” said Cole Crawford, CEO and Founder of Vapor IO. “We need to build digital twins of our networks, but digital twins require large amounts of high-fidelity data – and that data was simply not available until today. With Arrcus, we are setting a disruptive precedent industry, collaborating to build an observability data plan for the internet that we need.”

As founding members of the Open Grid Alliance, Arrcus and Vapor IO will begin integrating the observability data plane into Open Grid systems deployed in cities around the world, including the Open Grid Innovation Zone in Las Vegas, Nevada.
