Data centre start-up looks to disrupt with Series A funding

News: Vapor IO gained industry attention with the Vapor Chamber.


Disruptive data centre startup Vapor IO has announced it has closed its Series A of funding.

Not disclosing the raised sum, the company’s round was led by Goldman Sachs, with participation from Austin’s AVX Partners.

Vapor IO CEO said he was "very happy with the number".

The company has also unveiled that Goldman’s MD Tom Jesson and AVX’s general partner Chris Pacitti will be joining its board of directors.

Vapor IO has gained the industry’s attention since the startup introduced its Vapor Chamber. The company claims the structure to be the industry’s first hyper collapsed data centre inspired by Open Compute.

It has been designed for those looking to increase density and significantly lower capex/opex investments when deploying compute and storage resources for both remote and on-premise/edge purposes.

Vapor IO has also introduced the Open Data Centre Runtime Environment (DCRE), and open source platform for server and rack management.

Crawford said: "Data centres have proven to be nothing short of problematic. This is primarily due to poorly integrated systems, legacy software and hardware, and the disjointed approach the industry takes to building out data centre environments.

"As IT prepares to support edge based computing, it is imperative we manage and orchestrate our infrastructure as a whole with no prejudice as to where or how many data centres are employed to support our workloads."
