Google Cloud's latest launch, Blockchain Node Engine, aims to help Web3 developers build and deploy new products on blockchain-based platforms.
The latest on the list of firms leveraging the functions of Blockchain technology is Google, with its newly released Blockchain Node Engine aimed at helping web3 development.
Per the company's announcement, the new solution was debuted to cater to the needs of developers instead of making use of self-managed nodes that are quite tasking and require consistent management.
Web3 firms who feel the necessity for devoted nodes can now use Google Cloud’s Blockchain Node Engine to relay transactions, deploy smart contracts, and read or write blockchain data with the expected dependability performance and security from Google Cloud compute and network framework.
Blockchain Node Engine is a fully managed node-hosting service that can minimize the need for node operations.
According to Google, Ethereum will be the first blockchain the Google Cloud’s Blockchain Node Engine will support, so as to allow developers to deliver fully managed Ethereum nodes with secure blockchain access.
Developers who use the Blockchain Node Engine can benefit from a more straightforward and faster deployment of new nodes with a specified desired region and network (mainnet, testnet), said Google.
In addition, the Blockchain Node Engine would offer security configurations that can help turn aside unapproved access to assigned nodes. It would also provide fully managed operations by allowing Google Cloud to actively monitor and restart the nodes when needed during an outage.
While Google is starting to stand its ground in the crypto industry as a technology firm, one thing worth noting is that the newly launched blockchain-based technology by Google cloud is once again a step forward for the mass adoption of blockchain technology.
Earlier this month, the company teamed up with crypto exchange Coinbase to allow some of its clients to pay for cloud services using cryptocurrencies. As reported by Blockchain.News, this collaboration also seeks to cater to the needs of the growing Web3 ecosystem
