Decentralised cloud computing network Cudos has joined hands with an edge solutions provider, blocz IO, to deploy and manage Cudos’ services globally and cater to the increasing cloud computing needs.
blocz IO helps organisations, enterprises, and public sectors with a complete range of cloud and edge solutions, including computing, storage, networking, and 5G connectivity.
As Cudo Compute is building a global, decentralised cloud computing platform, it utilises servers contributed by blocz IO for the testing phase. The partnership helps Cudo Compute iron out bugs, design a template to facilitate frictionless onboarding of the future cloud providers to its network.
“At Cudos, we work on developing technologies that will act as a catalyst for the emergence of edge computing, and decentralisation. While the vision of Cudo Compute is to provide high-performance computing at scale by harnessing the under-utilised compute, blocz IO works on new technologies that will change the landscape of the digital universe. It is a symbiotic relationship as the common goal is to better the way compute resources are utilised and delivered to the end-users, “ commented Pete Hill, Vice President of Sales at Cudos.
blocz IO, being a VMware partner, will bring infrastructure to the relationship. Its innovation hub located at Cambridge Research Park will conduct research and development around decentralised storage, help promote web3.0 and deliver the vision of Cudos. From the data centre within the hub, they will provide decentralised compute to Cudo Compute.
Both Cudos and blocz IO share the same ethos to innovate and deliver real, sustainable change. “blocz IO has a long history of integrating different technologies and deploying them to support real-world use cases. In this instance, Cudos and blocz IO will collaborate to deploy and manage Cudos based services globally in a manner which allows each organisation to focus on their core strengths and ultimately respond faster to evolving market opportunities,” said Lee Norvall, CEO, blocz IO.
“We are excited to cement our relationship with Cudos. As founding partners of the Open Grid Alliance, we see Cudos’s technology as critical to the evolution of web3.0 and we have been championing their products for some time. To now be in a position to collaborate is very exciting. We can collectively work towards filling the market gap and make a real change to the evolving technology landscape,” commented Chris Ward-Jones, COO, blocz IO.
blocz IO is one of the founding members of the Open Grid Alliance, the consortium which aims to rearchitect the internet, particularly at the edge.

About Cudo Compute
Cudo Compute is a fairer cloud computing platform for everyone. It provides access to distributed resources by leveraging underutilised computing globally on idle data centre hardware. It allows users to deploy virtual machines on the world’s first democratised cloud platform, finding the optimal resources in the ideal location at the best price.
Cudo Compute aims to democratise the public cloud by delivering a more sustainable economic, environmental, and societal model for computing by empowering businesses and individuals to monetise unused resources.
Our platform allows organisations and developers to deploy, run and scale based on demands without the constraints of centralised cloud environments. As a result, we realise significant availability, proximity and cost benefits for customers by simplifying their access to a broader pool of high-powered computing and distributed resources at the edge.
