Vapor IO Secures Series A Funding for Hyper Modular Data Center

Vapor IO, a start-up based in Austin, Texas, announced a Series A funding round for its intelligent, hyper modular data center solution.  The funding was led by Goldman Sachs, with participation from AVX Partners, but the amount was not disclosed.

Vapor IO is focused on new design for maximizing density and energy efficiency in data center design.


“For the past nine months we’ve been singularly focused on building a telemetry optimized data center analytics company whose mission is to modernize today’s legacy infrastructure and design,” said Cole Crawford, founder and CEO of Vapor IO. “Recognizing the need for innovation and the now standard deployment of open source technologies, we’re thrilled to partner with Goldman Sachs and AVX Partners to drive full stack data center automation in an industry that has traditionally bifurcated the physical assets from the application.”

Vapor IO Releases Open Source Platform for Server and Rack Mgt

Vapor IO, a start-up offering a hyper modular data center solution, introduced its Open Data Center Runtime Environment (DCRE) - an open source platform for data center rack and server management.

Vapor IO, which earlier this year introduced its hyper collapsed, disaggregated  data center solution, developed this new OpenDCRE software to simplify data center infrastructure communication. The solution exposes current generation interfaces to data center operators, system and devops administrators, thereby simplifying the programming needed to start automating the physical infrastructure itself.

Vapor IO said OpenDCRE is being released as an open source alternative to proprietary interfaces and custom silicon. This ensures that when a user interacts with their data center, they are communicating over a community owned interface and standard. OpenDCRE is designed to support all data center environments supporting HPE Cloudline and other OCP platforms. OpenDCRE replaces the need for out of band management networks saving users thousands of dollars per rack. Additional features of the product include SSL support, analog sensor and power control support and a simple RESTful API running on Raspberry Pi.
