Ankr, a leading Web3 developer hub, and Matter Labs, the inventors of zkSync Era, have announced an exciting partnership to launch dedicated zkSync Era Nodes and Hyperchain blockchain solutions on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The collaboration aims to accelerate Web3 development and drive enterprise adoption by providing easy access to scalable blockchain infrastructure.

Ankr’s Microsoft Azure Marketplace listings, established in June through the Ankr-Microsoft partnership, will now feature the latest offerings for the zkSync Era network. This collaboration brings together the expertise of all involved parties, combining Ankr’s specialized solutions, zkSync Era’s scalable blockchain network, and Microsoft’s robust cloud infrastructure.

Global Blockchain Connections Made Easy

The deployment service for zkSync Era nodes will provide worldwide blockchain connectivity, allowing enterprises and Web3 projects to connect to zkSync Era or develop Web3 applications on its zkEVM Ethereum Layer-2 scaling protocol. Furthermore, the forthcoming zkSync Era Hyperchains solution will enable enterprises to swiftly create and deploy their own dedicated Hyperchain blockchains, offering complete customization options to meet their specific requirements for privacy, performance, and security.

Ankr’s team will provide comprehensive engineering support to empower these enterprises in executing their Web3 strategies. Chandler Song, the Co-Founder and CEO of Ankr, expressed excitement about the collaboration, stating, “By offering the ability to build on zkSync Era via Ankr’s Microsoft Azure Marketplace solutions, we are breaking barriers to entry for an array of businesses that need their unique scalability and performance requirements met before they begin building out their Web3 initiatives.”

Marco Cora, senior vice president of business and operations at Matter Labs, said: “If we want to scale blockchain technology like the internet, we need to be able to accommodate the most complex Web2 use cases with the most stringent requirements in terms of security, performance and privacy, among other factors. We’re excited to see this infrastructure trifecta between Ankr, Microsoft Azure and zkSync Era lower the barrier to entry and ignite enterprise adoption of blockchains. With the addition of our recently announced ZK Stack, we expect more and more enterprise use cases to take off on zkSync Era.”

Collaborating to Accelerate Web3 Adoption

The announcement follows a meeting earlier this year at the Interop Summit held during ETHDenver, where representatives from Ankr, zkSync, and Microsoft discussed their collaboration in a panel titled “How Ankr, zkSync, and Microsoft Are Collaborating to Bring the Next Billion Users to Web3.” Additionally, the three companies will be co-hosting an event at the Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) in Paris on July 19.

Matter Labs, the creators of zkSync Era, have developed a layer 2 protocol that serves as the fundamental infrastructure for the Internet of value. By leveraging zero-knowledge cryptography, decentralization, and community ownership, zkSync Era enhances the security and core principles of Ethereum. By fostering increased freedom, zkSync Era fuels progress and ultimately contributes to greater prosperity. The mission of zkSync Era is to empower individuals with personal freedom and ensure universal access to digital self-ownership. This is achieved by constructing a blockchain network that is trustless, secure, permissionless, cost-effective, user-friendly, resilient, and infinitely scalable.

Ankr is a comprehensive Web3 developer hub, offering a wide range of tools and resources for building Web3 applications and establishing robust connections to over 30 blockchains. With its status as the authorized infrastructure partner for constructing application-specific blockchains on ecosystems such as BNB Smart Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche, Ankr streamlines blockchain development for various use cases. By developing AppChains tailored to each project, Ankr fulfills all infrastructure and engineering needs, including validators, RPC nodes, block explorers, testnets, staking platforms, and more, thereby providing fully customized blockchain solutions.

With a focus on delivering seamless access to zkEVM technology and infrastructure via the Azure Marketplace, this partnership strives to expedite Web3 development while ensuring uncompromised performance, scalability, and security. With the joint efforts of Ankr, Matter Labs, and Microsoft Azure, the availability of dedicated zkSync Era Nodes and Hyperchain blockchain solutions on the Azure Marketplace is expected to have a significant impact on advancing Web3 development and driving enterprise adoption of blockchain technology.
