Decentralised cloud computing network, Cudos, has joined hands with an edge solutions provider, blocz IO, to deploy and manage Cudos’ services globally and cater to the increasing cloud computing needs.
blocz IO helps organisations, enterprises, and public sectors with a complete range of cloud and edge solutions, including computing, storage, networking, and 5G connectivity.
As Cudo Compute is building a global, decentralised cloud computing platform, it utilises servers contributed by blocz IO for the testing phase. The partnership helps Cudo Compute iron out bugs, and design a template to facilitate frictionless onboarding of the future cloud providers to its network.
Pete Hill, vice president of sales at Cudos, said: “At Cudos, we work on developing technologies that will act as a catalyst for the emergence of edge computing, and decentralisation. While the vision of Cudo Compute is to provide high-performance computing at scale by harnessing the under-utilised compute, blocz IO works on new technologies that will change the landscape of the digital universe. It is a symbiotic relationship, as the common goal is to better the way compute resources are utilised and delivered to the end-users.”
blocz IO, being a VMware partner, will bring infrastructure to the relationship. Its innovation hub, located at Cambridge Research Park, will conduct research and development around decentralised storage, help promote web3.0 and deliver the vision of Cudos. From the data centre within the hub, they will provide decentralised compute to Cudo Compute.
From a sustainability perspective, under-utilised compute assets will be reengaged to remove the need for additional capacity.
Both Cudos and blocz IO share the same ethos to innovate and deliver real, sustainable change. “blocz IO has a long history of integrating different technologies and deploying them to support real-world use cases. In this instance, Cudos and blocz IO will collaborate to deploy and manage Cudos-based services globally in a manner which allows each organisation to focus on their core strengths and ultimately respond faster to evolving market opportunities,” said Lee Norvall, CEO, blocz IO.
“We are excited to cement our relationship with Cudos. As founding partners of the Open Grid Alliance, we see Cudos’s technology as critical to the evolution of web3.0 and we have been championing their products for some time. To now be in a position to collaborate is very exciting. We can collectively work towards filling the market gap and make a real change to the evolving technology landscape,” commented Chris Ward-Jones, COO, blocz IO.
blocz IO is one of the founding members of the Open Grid Alliance, the consortium which aims to rearchitect the internet, particularly at the edge.
