Digital Edge, one of Asia’s fastest growing digital infrastructure providers, and Zenlayer, a massively distributed edge cloud service provider, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) during the Pacific Telecom Council Annual Conference 2023 to jointly bring high-performance edge cloud services to East and Southeast Asia.
The partnership will give local cloud and service providers a one-stop digital hub for multiple edge services, helping them access global interconnectivity, reduce cost, and improve application performance.
Digital Edge is committed to bridging the digital divide in Asia by building and operating state-of-the-art, energy efficient data centers rich with connectivity options. The partnership with Zenlayer will strengthen Digital Edge’s presence in the fast-growing cloud ecosystem by introducing a variety of new cloud and interconnection options such as bare metal cloud, cloud on-ramp, multi-cloud access to its customer base. Digital Edge’s expanding geographical coverage is an ideal match for Zenlayer’s cloud and network infrastructure. With additional data center capacity coming online in Jakarta, Manila and Osaka in 2023, Digital Edge will be well positioned to support future expansions of cloud ecosystems at these locations.
“Cloud is the fastest growing and highly important customer segment to us, especially in emerging markets.” Samuel Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Edge, said, “by partnering with Zenlayer, a leader in this space, we will be able to combine our best services of cloud, networking, interconnection, and data center in a comprehensive, one-stop solution for our customers. This is a win-win partnership.”
Known as the worldwide leader of edge cloud, Zenlayer operates an edge infrastructure of massive scale, providing a full suite of cloud services in its 290 Points-of-Presence (PoPs) across 50 countries. As part of this collaboration, Zenlayer will use Digital Edge’s premium data center facilities to build new edge nodes; Digital Edge’s customers will be able to onboard Zenlayer’s high-speed global network backbone, and connect reliably and safely with users and services anywhere in the world.
“Partners are a critical part in Zenlayer’s success.” said Joe Zhu, Founder & CEO of Zenlayer. “We are thrilled to bring our services to Digital Edge’s truly exceptional data center facilities and jointly provide a one-stop experience to customers in the region.
