Zenlayer, a massively distributed edge cloud service provider, announced that it is named an AWS Partner of the Year 2022 in two distinct categories – “ISV Partner of the Year” and “Marketplace Partner of the Year.” The awards recognize Zenlayer’s significant role in helping customers drive innovation and build solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Presented during a Partner Awards Gala at re:Invent, AWS Partner Awards recognize a wide range of AWS Partners over the past year whose business models have embraced specialization, innovation, and collaboration, and celebrates those who have continued to evolve and thrive on AWS as they worked with customers.
A leader in edge cloud, Zenlayer has the most robust infrastructure connecting the fastest-growing economies in the world. The company became an AWS partner in 2018, joined the AWS ISV Accelerate Program in 2021, and achieved Amazon CloudFront Ready designation earlier this year. By seamlessly integrating with the AWS environment, Zenlayer has helped global customers instantly accelerate connectivity to a lineup of AWS services and realize the full benefits of cloud regardless of their location.
“AWS Partners are at the center of unlocking value for global customers, across a wide range of industries”
“I’d like to thank AWS for the prestigious awards,” said Joe Zhu, Founder and CEO of Zenlayer. “The two trophies reaffirm the value of our unwavering commitment to powering a better-connected world. We’ve already unlocked so many powerful use cases accelerating applications from cloud to edge with AWS. The combined power of cloud computing and distributed edge will open up new possibilities for businesses far beyond what they can imagine today.”
To date, Zenlayer and AWS have jointly enabled customers from various industry verticals to provide low-latency, real-time digital services to their global users. One such customer, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), a leader in FinTech and owner of the NYSE, was able to overcome connectivity barriers in Asia while building its Database-as-a-Service platform on AWS with the help of Zenlayer Global Accelerator and Cloud Networking services.
“Thanks to Zenlayer and AWS, financial buyers, sellers, and FinTech companies can now obtain ICE’s real-time global data on AWS through Zenlayer’s global acceleration solution, allowing them to make better-informed investment and risk management decisions,” said Leon Liang, Head of Data Business Development of ICE Asia Pacific.
For the first time, AWS Partner Awards included a self-nomination process across a number of categories and specialization awarded at both the regional and global levels. All AWS Partners were invited to participate and submit a nomination.
“AWS Partners are at the center of unlocking value for global customers, across a wide range of industries,” said Ruba Borno, Vice President, Worldwide Channels and Alliances, AWS. “We are honored to launch the inaugural global 2022 AWS Partner Awards, and thank all the nominees and winners for accelerating our customers’ cloud transformation journey.”
