Ankr has joined forces with Microsoft to provide enterprises and other organizations that require access to blockchain data with a node hosting service that is dependable and simple to operate. The newly launched service will be made available through Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace, making it possible for the company’s millions of monthly customers to quickly and easily have access to blockchain technology.
Ankr is a decentralized Web3 infrastructure provider that is now powering the fundamental layer for Web3, DeFi, and the digital economy spanning a wide range of blockchains. Ankr’s RPC node marketplace allows independent node providers to monetize their node network. It also allows Web3 developers to utilize Ankr’s increasingly decentralized RPC services with a pay-as-you-go model that is secured by the ANKR token.
Prolific Development of Web3 And Blockchain Applications
Ankr’s advances in blockchain infrastructure will be integrated with Microsoft’s cloud technologies as part of the partnership, resulting in an integration of technology from both organizations. Any Web3 project or developer will be able to take advantage of global blockchain connections with low latency when using the enterprise node deployment service. As a result, these individuals will have more time to devote to developing and growing their Web3 applications.
Chandler Song, Co-Founder & CEO of Ankr said: “This was a critical step in bringing blockchain infrastructure to a growing sector of the digital economy. The partnership, while an incredible milestone for Ankr, is also a key indicator of how far the decentralized web has come in integrating with the crucial players in every layer of web systems. The end result will be an era of extremely prolific building for blockchain-based applications from new Web3 projects as well as large enterprises entering the space.”
Ankr has the opportunity to bring forward the most efficient infrastructure layer for the sector by integrating its existing solutions with Azure, which will soon be made accessible in the Azure Marketplace. It opens up a new channel for attracting users and facilitating the serving of a substantial amount of RPC traffic through the combined services of the two firms. Companies that use Web3 and require dedicated nodes are now able to relay transactions, deploy smart contracts, and read or write blockchain data with the same level of dependability, efficiency, and privacy that they expect from Azure and Ankr.
Building a Strong Web3 Infrastructure Layer
A fully managed node hosting solution will be made available as a result of the collaboration of Ankr and Microsoft’s respective technological efforts. This solution will also give users the option to tailor the memory, bandwidth, and geographical location of blockchain nodes to meet their specific requirements. Ankr will be able to further expand and optimize its transaction processes after upgrading its load balancer to leverage Azure-based routing solutions. This will allow Ankr to route RPC requests to the nodes that are most equipped to handle them in an incredibly speedy and dependable manner.
Rashmi Misra, Microsoft General Manager AI & Emerging Technologies, said: “Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Many developers and organizations are exploring how Web3 can help solve real-world business challenges, and our partnership with Ankr will enable them to access blockchain data in a reliable, scalable, and secure way. Together with Ankr, we are building a strong Web3 infrastructure layer whether you’re a developer building the next big decentralized application (dApp) or an established enterprise exploring Web3.”
In addition to this ground-breaking partnership, Ankr, a pioneer in the Liquid Staking area, has also democratized access to staking on various Proof-of-Stake chains. Users of DeFi, developers of DeFi platforms, and platforms themselves can all profit from having access to a readily accessible liquid staking infrastructure. This allows for the creation of ecosystems that have the largest available source of crypto yield. Ankr’s mission is to become an important element of Web3’s growing infrastructure while also ensuring that the platform retains its decentralized nature thanks to the Ankr Network.
