Google Cloud Wants To Help Web3 Developers
Tech company Google in an effort to show its commitment to the future of the internet has now announced a new Blockchain Node Engine which the company is hoping will help Web3 developers to not only build but to deploy new products on various Blockchain-based platforms.
This development is following up with earlier news in 2022 that Google would introduce a new digital Assets Team to “support [its] customers’ needs in building, transacting, storing value, and deploying new products on Blockchain-based platforms.”
Google Blockchain Node Engine
Due to the fact that the encrypted transactions are kind of decentralized, a node is required here to help validate and also store data which in this case is typically a programming laptop, a service, or even a computer.
Nodes that are self-managed can be complex to deploy and they also require constant monitoring which Google now thinks to be a huge drawback and disadvantage ot this type of technology. The company however hopes to resolve some of these problems with its Blockchain Node Engine. Google is however planning to support Ethereum from the kick-off and it’s very much likely that we are going to be seeing more Blockchains rolled out as the program continues to expand.
Google’s Blog Post Announcement
“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,” a Google cloud blog post states.
Google Is Hoping To Lure Users with Three Key Benefits
There are three important and key benefits that Google hopes will lure users to its Blockchain Node Engine product. And firstly, it is designed to make the process both easier and faster than most current methods. The technology also promises to be more secure via the use of its own Virtual Private Cloud firewall, Cloud Armor, and many more.
Lastly, Google is keen to sell the fact that it will be a completely managed operation. This simply means that users can easily scale down on the number of workers needed that would otherwise be allowed typically to remedy outages and otherwise help monitor the nodes.
