StackPath Partners with Edgevana to Accelerate Web3 Growth
Partnership Speeds and Simplifies Deployment of High-Performance Solana Validators
DALLAS – December 8, 2022 – StackPath, the industry-leading edge computing platform, and Edgevana, the leader in accelerating the foundation for Web3, have partnered to make it even faster and easier for Solana community members to deploy Solana RPC or validator nodes via StackPath, leveraging the Edgevana one-click marketplace.
StackPath and Edgevana each are official solution providers for the Solana Foundation Server Program, a program designed to provide Solana community members access to best-in-class, approved-for-blockchain cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) around the world, with advantageous contract terms.
StackPath provides Server Program members access to directly deploy and manage servers in 39 StackPath-operated edge locations around the world, featuring private network connections between locations and exceptional throughput. That level of decentralization, integration, and proximity to end users has made the StackPath the most performant platform for program members.
With Edgevana, Server Program members have access to a turnkey solution that deploys, configures, and verifies validator nodes in third-party facilities in fewer than 60 seconds, fully decentralized, leveraging APIs and tooling that are part of the Solana Foundation Tour de Sun ’22 (TdS22) initiative.
Under the new partnership, StackPath servers are now a deployment option for TdS22 participants using Edgevana.
“Partnering with Edgevana was a no-brainer,” said Paul Drew, SVP Strategic Infrastructure Development of StackPath. “Our team has worked relentlessly over the past 12 months to give Server Program members unprecedented scale, decentralization, and performance. We added all new locations and already doubled the number of servers under management just for the Server Program. Meanwhile, Edgevana has practically perfected the deployment and onboarding experience—it just doesn’t get easier or faster. This partnership brings together the best of both worlds.”
“Simplification and increased performance are both essential for the success of Web3,” said Subhan Jahromi, Co-founder & COO of Edgevana. “Democratizing access for Web3 participation is the foundation for the next generation of the internet. We’re here to support StackPath’s efforts to enable a frictionless onboarding experience for Solana validators.”
