Zenlayer and Mobily Join Forces to Enhance Cloud Computing and Connectivity in Saudi Arabia

This past week, Zenlayer announced a groundbreaking partnership that will vastly expand connectivity in Saudi Arabia, one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, according to a recent Economist Intelligence report.

Against the backdrop of Capacity Europe, Zenlayer, the world’s first hyperconnected cloud company, revealed a strategic partnership with Mobily, Saudi Arabia’s second-largest internet service provider (ISP). The alliance between these two powerhouse companies will deliver high-performance edge compute and connectivity services to businesses deploying infrastructure in Saudi Arabia and potentially beyond.

“This is our first strategic partnership in the Middle East, and its significance cannot be overstated,” said Joe Zhu, Founder and CEO of Zenlayer. “Mobily is a dominant player in Saudi, which has been instrumental in shaping the country’s digital landscape. Their commitment gives me much confidence that we can together make a significant impact on the digital transformation of the region.”

The partnership between Zenlayer and Mobily holds immense promise for a wide range of industries, with gaming companies being a prime example. Saudi Arabia ranks as the 19th largest gaming market in the world, experiencing a remarkable 41.1% year-on-year growth. With over 21 million gamers in the country, the Kingdom’s investment of $180 billion annually to establish itself as a global gaming hub further solidifies its significance in the gaming industry. Zenlayer and Mobily’s joint solutions will provide gaming companies ultra-low latency and enhanced user experiences. Other industries, such as energy, healthcare, and retail, also stand to gain advantages from this collaboration.

The demand for applications and services to be deployed at the edge of cloud and to reach users in these burgeoning markets is imminent. With data sovereignty becoming a pivotal consideration for many countries, global businesses will look towards working with “glocal” vendors like Zenlayer to host services wherever their customers are located. This partnership promises exceptional opportunities for companies seeking to thrive in Saudi and the broader Middle East.
