Google’s cloud computing platform Google Cloud, which provides a suite of services and tools that businesses and developers use to manage applications and services, is set to become a Tezos ($XTZ) network validator.
According to an announcement, the Tezos Foundation teamed up with Google Cloud to help accelerate the development of Web3 applications on its network. Google’s Cloud vidision is set to become a validator, and the move will help its corporate clients develop and deploy Web3 applications on Tezos.
Google Cloud will enable its enterprise clients to contribute to blockchain development by serving as a validator or “baker” on the Tezos network. Moreover, specific startups that are nurtured by Tezos will have access to Google Cloud credits and mentorship.
Google Cloud’s Web3 engineering director was quoted saying:
At Google Cloud, we’re providing secure and reliable infrastructure for Web3 founders and developers to innovate and scale their applications. We look forward to bringing the dependability and scalability of Google Cloud to power Web3 applications on Tezos.
As CryptoGlobe reported, late last year the Google Cloud team announced the cloud computing platform would start running a block-producing Solana validator to participate and validate the network.
Moreover, Google Cloud worked with Solana to “bring Blockchain Node Engine to the Solana chain next year, so it will be easy for anyone to launch a dedicated Solana node in the cloud,” and started indexing the blockchain and adding it to its BigQuery platform.
On 27 October 2022, the Google Cloud team introduced Blockchain Node Engine, which is “a fully managed node-hosting service that can minimize the need for node operations.” They went on to say that “Web3 companies who require dedicated nodes can relay transactions, deploy smart contracts, and read or write blockchain data with the reliability, performance, and security they expect from Google Cloud compute and network infrastructure.”
They also mentioned that “Ethereum would be the first blockchain supported by Blockchain Node Engine, enabling developers to provide fully managed Ethereum nodes with secure blockchain access.”
Google’s interest in blockchain and Web3 projects is made clear through these integrations, which are believed to encourage other firms to enter the industry by relying on the scale and resilience of the infrastructure Google provides.
