Mumbai: Google Cloud and Polygon Labs have announced a multi-year strategic alliance to accelerate the adoption of core Polygon protocols, including Polygon PoS, Polygon Supernets, and Polygon zkEVM, with Google Cloud infrastructure and developer tools.
The two companies 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.
Google Cloud to become the strategic cloud provider for Polygon protocols
To help developers cut down time-intensive processes and costly overheads linked with provisioning, maintaining, and operating their own dedicated blockchain nodes, Google Cloud will bring Blockchain Node Engine, its fully managed node hosting service, to the Polygon ecosystem, further diversifying cloud services across the Polygon ecosystem.
Once Blockchain Node Engine support for Polygon is made available, developers using Blockchain Node Engine will no longer have to worry about configuring or running their Polygon Proof of Stake (PoS) nodes; they can instead focus on growth while retaining complete control over where their nodes are deployed.
The Google Cloud Marketplace is already offering developers simple one-click deployment of a Polygon PoS node to power their dApps quickly and easily. The Polygon blockchain dataset was listed on the Google Cloud Marketplace under the Google Cloud Public Dataset Program in 2021. With that dataset, developers can combine their use of BigQuery, Google Cloud’s serverless enterprise data warehouse, and Polygon PoS or Polygon Supernets to analyze real-time on-chain and cross-chain data to inform decision-making.
Polygon Supernets is a dedicated app-chain providing enterprises and other developers of specific applications with the ability to customize and extend block space based on their needs. By the end of Q3 2023, Polygon Labs will enable one-click developer net (DevNet) deployments on Google Cloud.
Developers interested in deploying a Supernet will be able to provision a three to five-node network with a simulated bridge in their virtual private cloud (VPC) for the purpose of rapid evaluation of the Supernets stack for their projects.
“Google Cloud supporting all of the Polygon protocols is a step in the right direction to help onboard more people into Web3,” said Ryan Wyatt, President of Polygon Labs.
“Today’s announcement with Google Cloud aims to increase transaction throughput, enabling use cases in gaming, supply chain management, and DeFi. This will pave the way for even more businesses to embrace blockchain technology through Polygon,” added Wyatt.
“Building on our work over the past few years, Google Cloud is helping the industry achieve escape velocity by directing our engineering efforts toward areas like improving data availability and enhancing the resilience and performance of scaling protocols like zero-knowledge proofs,” said Mitesh Agarwal, MD of Customer Engineering and Web3 Go-to-Market, Asia Pacific, Google Cloud.
“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,” added Agarwal.
