Applied Digital Corporation (Nasdaq: APLD) (“Applied Digital”), a designer, builder, and operator of next-generation digital infrastructure designed for High-Performance Computing (“HPC”) applications, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with ZEDEDA, the leader in edge orchestration. The strategic partnership will enable Applied Digital to use ZEDEDA’s award-winning management and orchestration software solution, powering Applied Digital’s new integrated on-demand Transmutable AI cloud service offering to address the exploding demand for AI computing resources and infrastructure.
Transmutable AI allows customer workloads to run seamlessly across a commutable infrastructure environment. This new service will augment Applied Digital’s recently launched AI cloud service by leveraging Applied Digital’s bare-metal infrastructure. By integrating ZEDEDA’s management and orchestration service, this offering will enable enterprise customers to purchase and use GPU resources on-demand and at scale across all of Applied Digital’s data centers for both virtualized and bare-metal edge and cloud AI environments.
The service will provide customers with a seamless experience, encapsulating dynamic on-demand and long-term allocation, fully integrated with orchestration, storage, and networking across all instances and applications. Customers will be able to purchase GPU resources by the hour and allocate any Applied Digital resources needed during a project's initial development, enabling effortless scaling as the project progresses into production. The new service is expected to go live during the second half of 2023.
“As our customers leverage AI workloads and HPC applications in increasingly new and innovative ways, we must be able to provide the resources they need where and when they need them,” said Wes Cummins, CEO of Applied Digital. “ZEDEDA’s cloud-native orchestration platform, coupled with our next-generation proprietary data center assets, provides the ideal foundation for us to seamlessly deliver these resources.”
The surge in AI and machine learning-based applications has created new demands from customers to dynamically access the compute resources needed to execute and scale critical AI, machine learning, and HPC workloads.
“We’re excited to partner with Applied Digital,” said Said Ouissal, founder and CEO of ZEDEDA. “We believe the cloud computing paradigm should be extended everywhere, and we have already witnessed this at the far edge of the network. Generative AI is now demanding new learning and inference infrastructure requirements, specifically in power efficient environments, validating that edge computing is truly ubiquitous and transformative”.
ZEDEDA makes edge computing effortless, open, and intrinsically secure — extending the cloud experience to the edge. ZEDEDA reduces the cost of managing and orchestrating distributed edge infrastructure and applications while increasing visibility, security and control. ZEDEDA delivers a distributed, cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution, simplifying the security and remote management of edge infrastructure and applications at scale.

BCN, a New Jersey-based communications technology solution provider focused on multi-location enterprise businesses, announced today the formation of a new partnership with Cato Networks, provider of the world's leading SASE platform. The partnership allows BCN's nationwide network of sales partners to offer enterprises the Cato SASE Cloud platform to address today's key networking and security requirements.
The transition to remote work and the emergence of a cloud-first culture have had a major impact on enterprise networks and information security. Networking patterns have changed, and organizations must deploy new services and cater to new requirements faster than ever. A SASE architecture provides the agility and flexibility needed in this new environment. SASE makes it possible to deploy new branches remotely with low overhead. It also provides the security stack to ensure employees and contractors can access systems securely from anywhere.
Enterprises in healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, and other vertical markets are actively engaged in branch modernization and branch transformation projects. BCN's ability to offer a Cato SASE Cloud solution empowers them to do so with confidence. With BCN's deep portfolio of connectivity services, these businesses now have access to a fully managed and connected SASE-driven solution from one technology provider, on one invoice, with one point of contact for service and support.
Cato SASE Cloud is the world's most robust single-vendor SASE platform converging Cato SD-WAN and a cloud-native security service edge, Cato SSE 360, into a global cloud service. Cato enables enterprises to move away from rigid and disjointed connectivity and security architecture to Cato SASE Cloud, a modern secure network delivered as a service. Cato enables IT to rapidly address new business requirements, such as global expansion, M&A, cloud migration, and the hybrid workforce. Cato's converged architecture reduces cost and complexity with simple management, self-healing infrastructure, and automatically evolving defense that seamlessly mitigates emerging threats.
Frank Rauch, Global Channel Chief of Cato Networks, said, "We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with BCN. The shift to hybrid work is proving challenging to enterprises everywhere. Effective network security is more challenging than ever. With BCN's expertise and resourcefulness, enterprises will benefit strongly from this partnership."
Julian Jacquez, President, and COO of BCN, said, "Our sales partners and enterprise customers will benefit tremendously from the partnership BCN and Cato have forged. Cato's SASE technology platform, integrated with BCN's robust connectivity services portfolio means our partners and customers can address a host of security and networking challenges and take advantage of opportunities that yield cost-efficiency through our collaborative and transparent service delivery architecture."
BCN is a closely held and operated communications technology solutions provider with the flexibility and experience to address every customer need uniquely, creating tailored solutions based on the portfolios of over 100 wholesale network and technology partners. In addition, BCN provides customers with one monthly invoice for all services and a state-of-the-art portal to manage their BCN business.
