Cryptocurrency mining company Hut 8 has partnered with edge solutions provider Zenlayer to bring edge computing services to blockchain and Web3 users.
Hut 8 customers will gain access to Zenlayer’s edge platform, allowing for the deployment of mining applications across a system which is accessible in 40 nations around the globe. Miners will also be equipped with self-provision compute and networking services through an online console or APIs.
Jaime Leverton, CEO of Hut 8, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Zenlayer as a trusted partner to mutually enhance our offerings for high-performance computing to our existing and future customers.
“Zenlayer is a global leader in edge cloud services, and we are proud to be the first to bring their services to Canada and continue growing the cloud solutions landscape for Web3, blockchain, and enterprise customers.”
As part of the partnership, Zenlayer customers will have improved access to the Canadian market through Zenlayer expanding its cloud regions at Hut 8’s Kelowna and Mississauga data centres. The partnership allows both companies to collaborate on product development and integrations.
“Hut 8’s allocated digital asset mining and open-source distributed ledger technology make them a market leader in the crypto industry,” said Joe Zhu, founder and CEO of Zenlayer. “We are delighted to partner with Hut 8 to provide joint solutions to the growing blockchain and Web3 ecosystem and look forward to deeper product integrations in the future.”
Zenlayer was recently recognised as Equinix’s 2021 Partner of the Year for Asia Pacific thanks to its provision of edge cloud services in the region.
