Google Cloud and Polygon Labs have recently announced a multi-year strategic alliance that includes support for Polygon in Google Cloud’s Blockchain Node Engine.
The aim of this move is to simplify the deployment and management of Polygon nodes, making it easier for developers to build on the Polygon ecosystem and increasing its adoption.
The Blockchain Node Engine, which already supports Ethereum, will also be integrated with Solana, as previously announced last November.
According to a Google Cloud spokesperson, this move will help scale the technology quickly, ensuring that transactions remain fast and fees remain low, even as demand increases.
With the Google Cloud infrastructure, developers can easily deploy and manage blockchain nodes, overcoming the time-intensive processes and costly overhead associated with provisioning, maintaining, and operating their own dedicated blockchain nodes.
This is an important step forward in making blockchain development more accessible to a wider range of developers.
Google Cloud’s support for all Polygon protocols, including Polygon proof-of-stake network, Polygon Supernets, and Polygon zkEVM, will help further accelerate the adoption of the Polygon ecosystem.
This move will also make it easier and faster for developers to deploy on Polygon proof-of-stake network and Polygon Supernets, providing access to funding for web3 start-ups.
In addition, the alliance will enable the scaling of blockchains with ZK technology, which eliminates the throughput bottlenecks present on existing chains. This is an important step toward a ZK-powered future, according to Brendan Farmer, co-founder of Polygon Labs.
