Our goals

Our goal is to create computer technology-related prototypes and share technology-centric knowledge. We work on experimental business-related topics that are not customer-driven, and outcomes are not guaranteed, as is the nature of R&D.

IPFS Naming

The first worldwide IPNS service

Groundbreaking Image


The Interplanetary Name System (IPNS) is a fundamental element of the Interplanetary File System (IPFS), designed to solve the problem of managing and dynamically updating immutable IPFS addresses.

IPFS enables content to be stored and retrieved on the basis of its cryptographic fingerprints, IPNS goes a step further by introducing a mutable naming based on asymmetric cryptography.

IPNS records are no longer stored on a single server; instead, they reside within a distributed network of nodes that collectively manage and respond to naming resolution. This approach significantly enhances reliability and makes it considerably more challenging to censor.

Experience the Future Now Image

Available Now!

Scaleway Labs is proud to introduce the world's first IPFS Naming Service, which tackles a fundamental challenge in the era of a post-DNS Internet.

This service is available now, at a competitive price, and benefits from the redundancy and stability of Scaleway infrastructures in its three European regions.

First Service in the world Image


When combined with our IPFS Pinning service, our IPFS Naming service allows you to host your content on the IPFS network by delegating the technical details to us.

This means you can host your website on IPFS without the added expenses of operating a dedicated IPFS node.

Additionally, you have the flexibility to manage everything through an API, making it seamlessly integrated with the familiar Scaleway Developer Experience.

p2p Network

Global Peer-to-Peer Network

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a file sharing peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a single global network. IPFS uses content-addressing to uniquely identify each file and a DHT to locate the content you are looking for.

AMP2 instances

Powerful 64-bit ARM virtual machines, based on Ampere's latest processor designed for the cloud: the Altra Max.
In addition to its performance predictability, this new ARM8.2 processor is a market leader in terms of energy efficiency.

A new hope Image

Powerful 64-bit ARM virtual machines, based on Ampere's latest processor designed for the cloud: the Altra Max.

In addition to its performance predictability, this new ARM8.2 processor is a market leader in terms of energy efficiency.

Energetic efficiency Image

The processor upon which AMP2 Instances are built has a maximum thermal envelope of 250W. This allows the processor to run its 128 cores under full load, without losing frequency.

To further improve energy efficiency, these Instances use processor time densification technology, allowing even better sharing of available physical resources.

Direct from the Labs Image

AMP2 Instances are the result of a collaboration between Ampere Computing and Scaleway Labs, representing the return of ARM technologies to Scaleway’s cloud ecosystem.

Please note that these Instances are currently in a trial phase. It is not recommended to use them to host critical services.
