Synergistic efforts between Web2 and Web3 providers can enhance the future of decentralized cloud infrastructure, and Flux is not a maximalist.

FluxCloud is powered by thousands of independently distributed nodes worldwide, generating massive computing power to keep the network running.

Aware of the critical role of node operators in the ecosystem, Flux is committed to providing them with the best hardware and infrastructure for optimal performance. This has led to partnerships with different hardware companies; for example, Flux partnered with Seeed to launch the first-ever plug-and-play FluxNode.

Flux has also collaborated with OVH Cloud, one of the leading cloud providers in Europe, to expand the range of edge cloud solutions across Web2 and Web3.

Now, Flux is set to partner strategically with Contabo to open up new opportunities for affordable cloud hosting services customized for FluxNode operators.

Contabo, founded in 2003, is an award-winning German provider offering superior cloud infrastructure, including Virtual Private Server (VPS), Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS), and dedicated server hosting. With multiple data centers in eight regions cutting across the United States, the UK, Japan, Singapore, and Australia, Contabo can guarantee global availability of their infrastructure to an average uptime of 99.9996%.

Contabo offers a more affordable alternative to conventional providers like DigitalOcean, Vultr, and Linode without compromising performance. In addition, the cloud provider maintains a 24/7 customer service policy, making it ideal for new and experienced operators to host their nodes.

There are also customized configurations designed to match different FluxNode tiers. This positions Contabo as a pioneer in offering cloud services tailored to the unique demands of blockchain applications.

By partnering with Contabo, Flux can leverage its robust infrastructure to enhance its network capabilities and bridge the gap between Web2 and Web3 in providing scalable cloud infrastructure.

The partnership also presents a mutual potential opportunity for Contabo to utilize Flux GPU compute resources for powering future projects, thus setting the stage for transformative advancements in cloud hosting services.

“Flux and Contabo’s partnership exemplifies a broader trend of mainstream acceptance and adoption of decentralized technologies. As the boundaries between Web2 and blockchain blur, collaborations like this pave the way for a more interconnected and technologically advanced future.” — Daniel Keller, Co-founder, Flux.
