Huobi Launches $100 Million Lunar New Year Campaign to Support Metaverse Development

Huobi Global | January 25, 2022

Huobi Global, one of the world's leading digital asset exchanges, announced the official launch of its Lunar New Year campaign, dubbed Prime Fest: Tiger Year. Lasting until February 14, 2022, this campaign encourages users to explore future possibilities in the metaverse, an expansive network of virtual worlds that may incorporate augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D holographic avatars, video and other means of communication in the future. To promote the development of the metaverse, Huobi is doling out US$100 million in prizes and rewards, including access to new metaverse token listings under Primelist, high-yielding asset management products under PrimeEarn, and special blind box draws under PrimeBox. Huobi will also invite participants to register for DIDs (decentralized identifiers), or personalized virtual identities in the metaverse; these users will be eligible to win unique tiger-themed NFT avatars. Huobi's DIDs are designed to be users' entry point into the metaverse, providing them with an access point between Web2 and Web3. DIDs are widely considered a prerequisite for anyone looking to enter the metaverse, not only granting user access but also recording and verifying all information and activity on blockchains. DIDs offer users security, ownership, and interoperability. Huobi's NFT platform launched its own DIDs at the end of 2021 to give select users access to exclusive NFT releases, airdrops, and other special benefits. Our emphasis on the metaverse reflects our intentions to provide a more fun and unique crypto experience. We're not just another spot trading exchange. We pride ourselves on our diverse set of products and services, and the promotions we run are designed to gamify the trading experience and make it more fun."

Spectro Cloud Announces Open Source Contribution That Makes Bare Metal Kubernetes Accessible and Manageable For The Enterprise

Spectro Cloud | August 18, 2021

Spectro Cloud, a provider of a next-gen enterprise Kubernetes management platform, today announced the release of an open source CNCF Cluster API contribution supporting Canonical’s MaaS interface. The new contribution to the open source Kubernetes ecosystem addresses the need for organizations to easily deploy, run and manage Kubernetes clusters directly on top of bare metal servers, increasing performance and minimizing cost and operational effort. “Running Kubernetes directly on bare metal servers is the next big thing for the Kubernetes community, but it has been challenging and difficult to implement,” said Tenry Fu, CEO & co-founder at Spectro Cloud. “So far, we have seen two fairly compartmentalized efforts to evolve the use of bare metal with all of its benefits and to modernize Kubernetes management. The problem has been that each of these initiatives have been siloed thus far. With the Spectro Cloud Cluster API provider for MaaS, we have built the bridge between the two—this will enable the whole market to expand.” This latest open source contribution from Spectro Cloud is the first industry solution to bridge two paradigm shifts for Kubernetes: Cluster API, which enables comprehensive lifecycle management in a declarative manner for Kubernetes environments, and bare metal performance. It allows any team to use CNCF’s Cluster API to easily provision Kubernetes clusters on bare metal servers in any data center and manage them just like any other Kubernetes deployment target, without the extra hassle and risks, or additional technical skill sets. The open source software, under Apache license and available for anyone to download, can be used by IT and development teams that are interested in managing Kubernetes environments at scale and have or are interested in extending to bare metal servers. Organizations moving to production Kubernetes with multiple projects can benefit from Spectro Cloud’s Cluster API provider for MaaS through: Simplified management: No need for complex scripting, time wasted in configurations or a virtualization skill set in-house Improved performance: Eliminates the 7-10% Central Processing Unit (CPU) / memory hit added by hypervisors, also allows directly accessing GPUs and high-IOPS storage Lowered costs: The ability to run Kubernetes directly on bare metal bypasses the need for hypervisor and virtualization licensing “Kubernetes can be challenging, let alone deploying directly on bare metal servers,” adds Saad Malik, CTO and co-founder at Spectro Cloud. “The challenge with bare metal Kubernetes was always in treating those environments as one-offs that required specialized management, customizations and additional oversight. What we have built is essentially a way for any team to deploy and manage bare metal Kubernetes just like any other cluster. This open-source contribution, along with the Spectro Cloud platform, further demonstrates our work in bringing life to the CNCF Cluster API project.” Spectro Cloud’s ongoing contributions to open-source projects push the boundaries as the market moves into the next phase of Kubernetes. The new solution promotes the company’s vision around delivering the capabilities of container-based development with Kubernetes, without the complexity that hinders widespread enterprise adoption for production-scale environments. "Spectro Cloud's release of a MaaS provider for CNCF's Cluster API project is an important contribution to the technology industry, extending Kubernetes provisioning and management to now include bare metal target environments,” said Joseph Jacks, Founding CNCF Member and Former Board Member, Co-founder of KubeCon. “These types of open source projects and efforts help to advance the adoption of new technologies for both business and solution providers." About Spectro Cloud Spectro Cloud provides a complete and integrated platform that enables organizations to easily manage the full lifecycle of any combination of new or existing, simple or complex, small or large Kubernetes environments whether in data centers or clouds. With a unique approach to managing multiple clusters, Spectro Cloud gives IT teams complete control, visibility and production-scale efficiencies to provide developers highly-curated Kubernetes stacks and tools based on their specific needs, with granular governance and enterprise-grade security. Spectro Cloud is backed by Stripes, Sierra Ventures, boldstart ventures, Westwave Capital, Alter Venture Partners and Firebolt Ventures.
