Ankr, Matter Labs, and Microsoft Azure team up to propel Web3 development


  • Ankr and Matter Labs are launching zkSync Era Nodes and Hyperchain solutions on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace to boost web3 development.
  • The partnership will enable businesses to build custom Hyperchain blockchains and offer full engineering support from Ankr’s team.
  • The collaboration plans to further web3 development by providing easy access to zkEVM technology via the Azure Marketplace.

Ankr, the go-to Web3 developer hub, and Matter Labs, inventors of the zkSync Era, have announced their collaboration to boost the advancement of Web3 technology. Together, they will debut dedicated zkSync Era Nodes and Hyperchain blockchain solutions on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This partnership blends the specialized solutions of Ankr, the scalable network of zkSync Era, and Microsoft’s robust cloud infrastructure, heralding a new era of technological convergence for the Web3 ecosystem.

These powerful zkSync Era Nodes will enable worldwide blockchain connectivity, providing enterprises and Web3 projects a pathway to integrate with zkSync Era or to develop web3 applications using its zkEVM Ethereum Layer-2 scaling protocol. Ankr’s CEO, Chandler Song, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating that it would break down barriers for businesses seeking to meet their scalability and performance needs as they dive into their web3 ventures.

Fostering enterprise adoption of blockchain

Moreover, the upcoming zkSync Era Hyperchains solution is designed to equip enterprises with the ability to develop and launch their unique Hyperchain blockchains rapidly. Fully customizable, these solutions will cater to specific privacy, performance, and security requirements. Ankr’s team will provide full-spectrum engineering support to assist enterprises in their strategic Web3 pursuits.

Echoing Song’s sentiment, Marco Cora, Senior Vice President of Business and Operations at Matter Labs, emphasized the importance of accommodating intricate Web2 use cases with the highest security, performance, and privacy standards to scale blockchain technology like the internet. Also, Cora expressed his excitement for the “infrastructure trifecta” of Ankr, Microsoft Azure, and zkSync Era, noting its potential to decrease entry barriers and ignite enterprise adoption of blockchains.

A triad pact to accelerate blockchain adoption

The announcement comes on the heels of the trio’s earlier meeting at the Interop Summit during ETHDenver, where they deliberated on their partnership in a panel titled “How Ankr, zkSync, and Microsoft Are Collaborating to Bring the Next Billion Users to Web3.” The three companies also co-hosted an event at the Ethereum Community Conference (EthCC) in Paris today.

In addition to making zkEVM technology and infrastructure easily accessible on the Azure Marketplace, the collaboration aims to accelerate Web3 development without compromising performance, scalability, or security. The efforts of Ankr, Matter Labs, and Microsoft Azure are expected to significantly influence the future of Web3 development and enterprise adoption of blockchain technology.
