Use case scenario: A software vendor makes use of Chainstack as a control panel (via a UI or API) to orchestrate and manage blockchain nodes, networks and services running entirely in their own custom infrastructure.
With Chainstack-managed hosting, you get the complete managed blockchain services experience: monitoring, logging, backups, deployment of fully synced nodes, and request metrics. With hybrid hosting, you get the nodes running in your own infrastructure.

Use case scenario: A service provider willing to provide managed blockchain services to their customers. Chainstack packages all the components for the hosted installation so that the service provider can leverage their own infrastructure and all other existing functions such as billing.
