EdgeConneX and Zenlayer will collaborate to deliver new edge cloud and networking solutions to enterprises that are within the EdgeConneX global data centre footprint. 

Zenlayer services include on-demand bare metal cloud, direct connections to all major public clouds and data centres, application acceleration, and managed hosting.

Through the partnership with EdgeConneX to bring these solutions to local markets close to enterprise locations will help remove the barriers to cloud adoption such as performance, security, and costs and make it easier to implement hybrid and multi-cloud strategies.

"We are excited to partner with EdgeConneX to create improved user experiences and lower latency for their customers," said Joe Zhu (pictured), founder and CEO of Zenlayer.

"EdgeConneX data centres offer the perfect platform for us to offer our edge cloud services thanks to their global locations and extensive connectivity. We look forward to expanding access for digital businesses in underserved and emerging markets."
