Cato Digital and Cudo Compute have announced a strategic alliance to offer sustainable, on-demand cloud infrastructure.
This collaboration unites Cato Digital’s expertise in using ‘circular economy’ hardware and running efficient data centres with Cudo Compute’s cloud marketplace, presenting a potential alternative to conventional cloud platforms.
Cato Digital’s approach is focused on reducing the environmental impact of cloud computing. By repurposing hardware and operating energy-efficient data centres, they aim to extend the life of existing hardware and reduce the carbon footprint of resource-intensive data centres.
Dean Nelson, CEO at Cato Digital, said: “Collaboration with Cudo Compute allows us to accelerate our strategy of providing sustainable cloud infrastructure to an even wider market with greater efficiency.”
“By leveraging ‘second life’ hardware in sustainable data centres, we can offer a cost-effective alternative to expensive hyperscale solutions,” added Nelson.
The companies celebrated by signing their first sustainable revenue dollar together, as seen on LinkedIn.
Cudo Compute’s marketplace facilitates technology partners like Cato Digital in offering their data centre infrastructure to a broad audience on-demand, making it more accessible. The company’s high-performance computing (HPC) resources utilise underused computing power from idle data centre hardware.
Matt Hawkins, CEO of Cudo Compute, said: “Our partnership with Cato Digital perfectly exemplifies our commitment to democratising IaaS and high-demand HPC infrastructure.”
By integrating Cato Digital’s GPU and CPU resources into their cloud marketplace, Cudo Compute can offer a diverse range of high-performance and low-cost solutions.
“This is incredibly important at a time when HPC market requirements are placing unprecedented demand onto legacy cloud platforms,” said Hawkins.
This partnership is anticipated to be attractive to the video rendering and AI inference and training communities, who are increasingly looking for sustainable, high-performance cloud infrastructure options.
