Leo Capital and Blu Ventures contributed $2.65 million to the seed round of Zeeve, an enterprise-grade no-code platform for automating blockchain infrastructure. The money obtained from this round will be utilized to strengthen product development, expand the technical team, and broaden the company's appeal to DApp developers and multinational organizations.

Using its no-code platform, Zeeve makes it simple to install Blockchain nodes and Decentralized Apps on enterprise-grade infrastructure. The stakeholders may manage their nodes and networks with powerful analytics and real-time notifications, and nodes can be deployed in a matter of minutes. The majority of the important permissioned blockchain protocols, such as Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda, Fluree, and Hyperledger Sawtooth, as well as public blockchain protocols, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Tron, Avalanche, and Fantom, are supported by Zeeve's solution.

Zeeve was established in 2021 by Dr. Ravi Chamria, a serial entrepreneur, tech evangelist, and co-founders Ghan Vashistha and Sankalp Sharma. Zeeve has since become a leader in the development of simple-to-deploy web3 infrastructure, with the trust of more than 10,000 developers, Blockchain startups, and businesses.

"The Internet has come a long way - from the simple web pages of web1.0 to the decentralized web3.0. Lots of exciting innovations have happened in the web3.0 space like DeFi, NFTs, Decentralized Insurance, Prediction Markets, etc. We should expect to see a lot more innovation over the next five years, revolutionizing how we use the internet. With further advancements in blockchain technology, we may soon see web3 utilized for everything from online commerce to voting and governance."

Dr. Ravi Chamria, CEO, Zeeve

Web3 is reportedly being hailed as the internet of the future by Harvard Business Review. Web3 has the power to increase everyone's access to the internet. More quickly than in previous web iterations, Web3 infrastructure may be used by new enterprises to create communities around their brands and product concepts. By linking to content networks powered by blockchain technology and granting users some level of data governance, even currently operating platforms may use such prospects. All of this suggests that the web will appear very different — and far more open — than it does right now in the future.

"In this new era of the internet, companies like Zeeve play a pivotal part in making it easy for enterprises and Blockchain startups to deploy blockchain nodes and consume APIs to connect with Blockchains. Zeeve's offering helps DevOps teams ease their operational, security, and performance challenges while deploying and managing Blockchain nodes and networks," says Tarun Upaday, Partner, Blu Ventures.

Scale Computing Continues to Deliver High-Performing and Resilient Edge Computing and IT Infrastructure to the Maritime Industry

Scale Computing | August 03, 2022

Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced ongoing momentum with customers in the maritime industry sector. The company’s SC//Platform and SC//HyperCore edge computing solutions enable maritime providers to run their critical onboard IT applications with self-healing, automated infrastructure. Whether it’s an offshore rig operating deep in the North Sea or a container ship crossing the Pacific Ocean, Scale Computing empowers a broad range of maritime service providers to improve their efficiency and ensure high availability. “Few industries showcase the challenges and promise of edge computing as does the global maritime industry where IT resiliency is an operational necessity and downtime is unacceptable,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Scale Computing meets the complex and evolving infrastructure requirements of an industry that demands 24x7 availability, full redundancy, and is backed by human experts who understand the unique conditions that exist at the edge.” Scale Computing brings the maritime industry into a new era of computing by revamping IT operations with a solution that simplifies management, reduces operating costs, and ensures resiliency and high availability in the face of unpredictable environmental conditions. Northern Marine Group is a ship management and marine services provider that offers a full spectrum of ship and offshore management services. Operating a diverse fleet of technically managed vessels, including a wide range of tankers, ferries and offshore assets, the Northern Marine fleet is constantly on the move around the globe. Northern Marine selected Scale Computing’s SC//Platform, which provides them with simplified, highly affordable IT infrastructure that offers unmatched resiliency in some of the world’s most extreme environments. Because internet connectivity is highly intermittent with no dedicated IT personnel stationed on their vessels, Northern Marine deployed SC//HyperCore clusters to keep their operations running smoothly, whether offshore or out at sea. “We were looking for ways to evolve our onboard IT infrastructure across our fleet. In the last several years, requirements for key infrastructure systems on board have changed. Each vessel now has two or more operational critical applications on its server infrastructure, meaning we really can’t afford any downtime. We need to be able to sustain equipment failure and still continue to operate." Scott Mungall, IT Technical Lead for Northern Marine Headquartered in Dubai, Telford Offshore offers cost-effective construction and project management solutions to the oil & gas industry. The company supports multiple offshore activities, focusing on high-capacity accommodation, lifting, fabrication and installation services for projects that include laying pipelines and carrying out subsea construction. With internet connectivity slow and costly at sea, relying on the cloud for critical operations was simply not an option. Telford Offshore recognized their on-board infrastructure would need to be local and on-premises. Following a comprehensive evaluation of edge solution providers, Telford Offshore selected Scale Computing’s SC//Platform as the only solution in its class to offer the unique combination of simplicity and performance demanded by their fleet. Wouter Lustig, IT Manager at Telford Offshore, explained that, “We wanted the solution to be a long-term future-proof investment with the possibility of deploying it on our vessels at sea. The solution needed to be simple enough for the one or two electricians on board to install, deploy, and maintain. Scale Computing’s solution operates as its own data center in a box and can easily connect back to the deployment at the headquarters in Dubai. We are still amazed at how easy it is to install, deploy and manage – we don’t need to worry about the management of the day-to-day solution; it just takes care of itself.” About Scale Computing Scale Computing is a leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions. Scale Computing software eliminates the need for traditional virtualization software, disaster recovery software, servers, and shared storage, replacing these with a fully integrated, highly available system for running applications. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the self-healing platform automatically identifies, mitigates, and corrects infrastructure problems in real-time, enabling applications to achieve maximum uptime. When ease-of-use, high availability, and TCO matter, Scale Computing is the ideal infrastructure platform.

Kyndryl Announces Recovery Retainer Service to Restore Customers' Ability to Operate After Cyber Attacks

Kyndryl | July 26, 2022

Kyndryl , the world's largest IT infrastructure services provider, today announced a new retainer service to help customers recover from a disruptive cyber incident such as ransomware. Kyndryl's Recovery Retainer Service focuses on recovery actions that extend beyond incident response retainers available on the market today. The service is a natural complement to any incident response retainer and builds on Kyndryl's expertise in security and resiliency services. Kyndryl's Recovery Retainer Service provides experts, either on the ground or remote, to help organizations recover from a cyber incident. This service is designed to provide on-demand qualified experts in cyber recovery, to assist the customer in proactively improving cyber recovery preparedness, as well as delivering support to recover from cybersecurity events. Kyndryl combines deep domain expertise, recovery response, and remediation to maximize value while using industry-best practices supported by consulting and recovery expertise to support customers as they face ever increasing threats. "We need to see a shift in this field, from simply security to one of 'cyber resilience.' The public and private sector need both because today it is no longer a question of whether cyber attackers will breach our defenses, but when will they break through and how much damage they will do," said Kris Lovejoy, Kyndryl Security and Resiliency Global Practice Leader. "The Recovery Retainer Service mitigates the impact of cyber incidents by having experts on hand," Lovejoy said. "IT and cybersecurity teams are being tasked to demonstrate that cyber resilience does not reside solely on whiteboards anymore. Having an actual cyber recovery plan that allows for key capabilities to be brought up in a controlled and rapid manner is a key step in cyber resilience. "A logical progression involves practicing the cyber recovery plan on a regular basis to reduce the elevated stress levels that are inherent in an actual cyber recovery operation, while simultaneously smoothing out the kinks from the inevitable changes to an organization's digital footprint." Craig Robinson, IDC Research Vice President, Security Services Kyndryl's Recovery Retainer Service provides global expert knowledge, assets, and delivery to perform recovery actions after an attack causes an outage. The service is intended to help customers get back up and running quickly. It goes beyond incident response retainer services that provide forensics, but typically do not address recovery-related actions such as defining recovery processes based upon forensics, redeploying applications, restoring data, cleaning systems, among other critical tasks. The Kyndryl Recovery Retainer Service complements existing incident response retainers. About Kyndryl Kyndryl is the world's largest IT infrastructure services provider. The company designs, builds, manages, and modernizes the complex, mission-critical information systems that the world depends on every day. Kyndryl's more than 90,000 employees serve over 4,000 customers in more than 60 countries around the world, including 75 percent of the Fortune 100.
