Google Cloud becomes strategic cloud provider for Polygon protocols, bringing Blockchain Node Engine to the ecosystem
Google Cloud and Polygon Labs announced a strategic partnership to help developers build, launch, and grow their decentralized applications (dApps) on Polygon protocols. This partnership will accelerate the adoption of core Polygon protocols, including Polygon PoS, Polygon Supernets, and Polygon zkEVM, with Google Cloud infrastructure and developer tools.
Google Cloud, the strategic cloud provider for Polygon protocols, will offer its fully managed node hosting service, Blockchain Node Engine, to the Polygon ecosystem. Developers using Blockchain Node Engine will no longer have to worry about configuring or running their Polygon PoS nodes, enabling them to focus on growth while retaining complete control over where nodes are deployed.
Google Cloud Marketplace is already offering developers a 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 Labs is also working on enabling one-click developer net (DevNet) deployments on Google Cloud by the end of Q3 for their dedicated app-chain, Polygon Supernets. Developers who are 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 project.
Polygon zkEVM, an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) equivalent scaling solution, integrates seamlessly with existing Ethereum functions, smart contracts, developer tools, and wallets by leveraging zero-knowledge proofs, an advanced form of cryptography. Polygon Labs will advance its zero-knowledge innovation strategy and enable Web3 developers to avoid trade-offs between three key properties: decentralization, scalability, and security, with Google Cloud as a cloud provider, and Searce facilitating technical implementation.
To provide founders in the Polygon ecosystem with more resources to scale their innovative Web3 products and dApps, eligible early-stage startups backed by Polygon Ventures can now receive newly announced Web3-specific benefits through the Google for Startups Cloud Program. This includes up to US $200,000 in credits for their Google Cloud and Firebase usage for up to two years, early access to Google Cloud’s Web3 products and roadmap, invitation to a gated Discord channel with Google Cloud’s Web3 product and engineering teams, free access to hands-on learning labs focused on Web3 and the latest Google Cloud technology, and more.
Mitesh Agarwal, Managing Director, Customer Engineering and Web3 Go-to-Market, Asia Pacific, Google Cloud, said, “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.”
