Google Cloud on Friday announced a multi-year strategic alliance with the blockchain company Polygon Labs as Google Cloud works to adopt the company’s key protocols.
The announcement was made at the fintech event Consensus 2023. According to a press release, Google Cloud will look to implement Polygon proof-of-stake, Supernets, and Polygon zkEVM.
“Together, they are embarking on engineering and go-to-market initiatives to make it easier for developers to build, launch, and grow their Web3 products and decentralised applications (dApps) on Polygon protocols,” said the release.
Google Cloud will offer the Blockchain Node Engine. Once support is enabled, developers will not have to manage their proof-of-stake nodes independently.
Polygon Labs will also make one-click developer net (DevNet) deployments on Google Cloud available by the end of 2023.
While Polygon Labs improves the security of its zero-knowledge innovation strategy, Google Cloud will serve as a strategic cloud provider. According to the press release, initial tests led to quicker and less expensive transactions.
“Alongside Searce as our implementation partner, we look forward to deepening our collaboration with Polygon Labs to deliver the enterprise-ready Web3 infrastructure and developer-friendly tools that businesses need to offer fast, frictionless, and secure access to dApps for consumers,” said Mitesh Agarwal, Managing Director, Customer Engineering and Web3 Go-to-Market, Asia Pacific, Google Cloud.
According to market capitalization, Polygon was the ninth biggest blockchain on Friday.
