Top Executive: CEO Cole Crawford
Vapor IO, which just emerged from stealth in March, offers a "hyper modular" data center system designed to run in compact, big-city data centers. The systems include hyper-collapsed server racks along with management and analytics software needed to power data centers.
The startup is betting that the data centers of the future, including those powering the Internet of Things, will be compact, geographically dispersed and intelligent. Such data centers will be located in denser urban areas on the edge of major networks and have smaller footprints than most data centers today.
