Edge cloud service provider, Zenlayer, has been accepted into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerate Program, a co-sell program for AWS Partners that run on or integrate with AWS. This will allow Zenlayer and AWS to collaboratively provide customers with enhanced connectivity to cloud services on a global scale.
Zenlayer offers on-demand connectivity through its expansive global private backbone. The company has a wide portfolio of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings such as Cloud Networking, Bare Metal Cloud, and Zenlayer Global Accelerator (ZGA), the newly launched platform-as-a-service (PaaS) product. Through multiple acceleration options, such as IP acceleration and Application acceleration, ZGA helps to improve digital experiences for interactive applications like MOBA gaming, live streaming, and video conferencing, as well as SaaS services like Salesforce, Office 365, and Workday.
As an AWS ISV Accelerate Partner, Zenlayer will work closely with AWS to improve digital experiences for global customers. Enterprises today often experience poor connectivity when accessing or building digital services across country borders, challenged with long download times and slow data synchronization between cloud and customer on-prem and between regional clouds. Zenlayer and AWS jointly help customers overcome these challenges and reach global AWS source locations through local nodes, using high-speed, low-latency channels and intelligent routing. Zenlayer’s application acceleration service, ZGA, can instantly accelerate connectivity to a series of AWS services, such as AWS Chime, Appstream, Workspaces, S3, IoT Core, IVS, and KVS. Businesses can now enjoy quick access to these services regardless of their location.
“We are excited to deepen our relationship with AWS through the AWS ISV Accelerate Program, ” says Joe Zhu, CEO and Founder of Zenlayer. “AWS is known for its strong on-demand cloud computing services and being part of the ISV Accelerate Partner Program reflects our deep commitment to meeting the evolving cloud needs of our customers. We look forward to growing our relationship to help more enterprises realize the full benefits of cloud.”
Through this partnership, Zenlayer and AWS are improving overall business operations, accelerating technological innovations, and reducing cost for worldwide clients. Businesses can now purchase Zenlayer’s ZGA solution directly through the AWS Marketplace to accelerate their digital services.
“Zenlayer and AWS have a common vision to grow our business in emerging markets. We are excited to support Zenlayer’s global business and provide access to ZGA through the AWS Marketplace,” said Wang Rui, Manager of AWS Marketplace China and Technology Partners. “By adding Zenlayer into the AWS Marketplace, businesses of all sizes from enterprises to startups can now easily search, buy and deploy ZGA, and enable cloud native customer experiences on AWS.”
Zenlayer will continue working with AWS to optimize the joint initiative. The two companies are working on a stronger co-sell motion, as well as additional opportunities for integration and providing the best possible digital experiences for customers worldwide.
