SAN FRANCISCO – Ankr, in partnership with Optimism, introduces its groundbreaking Rollup as a Service, offering businesses and developers a streamlined process to configure and launch dedicated OP Chains. These chains inherit the technical and governance advantages of the Superchain ecosystem.
Ankr will provide the necessary engineering and infrastructure, making it easier than ever to deploy new OP Chains. The collaboration between Ankr and Optimism was officially announced during OP Labs’ Onchain Summit at Devconnect in Istanbul.
Ankr’s Rollup as a Service empowers users to establish an independent OP Stack-based L2, exclusively catering to the needs of their applications or projects. The Optimism Foundation has appointed Ankr as an official implementation partner to deliver OP Chains to prospective clients.
Josh Neuroth, Ankr’s Head of Product, commented on the significance of this collaboration, stating, “The combination of benefits from the OP Stack and Ankr’s Rollup as a Service will be game-changing for Web3 developers.”
“The scalability it introduces, coupled with the simplicity of deploying a new L2 solution for any enterprise or dApp, brings us closer to realizing the promises of the industry’s early days.”

“This marks the maturation needed to make the next generation of use cases a reality,” added Josh.
Tess Rinearson, Head of Product at OP Labs, expressed her excitement about working with Ankr to enhance the onboarding of new users into the thriving Superchain ecosystem. She said, “Ankr is already a trusted partner that provides Optimism with node infrastructure, so offering high-quality Rollup as a Service is a natural extension of our partnership.”
Ankr’s Rollup as a Service is an extension of their Scaling Services suite, which already allows developers to launch custom sidechains on various blockchain ecosystems. This offering expands the array of scaling solutions available to developers, catering to the industry’s growing demand for highly scalable projects that can leverage Ethereum’s security and token model.
Ankr serves as an all-in-one Web3 developer hub, offering a comprehensive suite of tools for building Web3 applications and providing high-performance connections to over 40 blockchains. As the approved infrastructure partner for developing dedicated sidechains and L2 rollups on ecosystems like Optimism, zkSync, BNB Smart Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche, Ankr simplifies blockchain development across all use cases.
Ankr’s services encompass the creation of new blockchains for projects, fulfilling infrastructure and engineering requirements such as validators, RPC nodes, block explorers, testnets, staking platforms, and more, offering tailored blockchain solutions.
