Google‘s cloud computing division has forged a new partnership with the Tezos blockchain, allowing it to act as a network validator. This new addition to its Web3 capabilities is a significant enhancement.
The partnership between Google Cloud and the Tezos Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Switzerland that promotes the Tezos blockchain was made public on February 22. This partnership will allow users of Google Cloud’s computing service to establish Tezos nodes and develop Web3 applications on the blockchain.
Tezos, like Ethereum, Cardano, and other smart contract platforms based on blockchain technology, fuel decentralized applications. Among the businesses that have employed Tezos are gaming industry giants Ubisoft and the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
Companies and developers can utilize Google Cloud’s infrastructure and the Tezos blockchain to deploy RPC (Remote Procedure Call) nodes for their Web3 applications through this partnership.
According to the statement, the Tezos Foundation will make its corporate baking program available to new and current Google Cloud clients. Under the program, Tezos will make the deployment of nodes and indexers for the Tezos protocol simple for Google Cloud users interested in developing Web3 apps.
The partnership between Tezos and Google Cloud will include the provision of Google Cloud credits and mentorship to a few Tezos incubator companies under the Google for Startups Cloud Program.
Mason Edwards, the Chief Commercial Officer of the Tezos Foundation, believes this collaboration is a significant step toward achieving institutional acceptance and expanding the market potential of Web3 technology.
A specialized team for digital assets was formed by Google Cloud in January 2022 with the goal of promoting the development and growth of the blockchain ecosystem. The team’s main goal was to help Google Cloud customers create, exchange, maintain, and introduce new goods on platforms backed by blockchain technology.
The Near Foundation inaugurated a new partnership between Near Protocol and Google Cloud in October. The collaboration was supposed to provide Pagoda, a Web3 startup platform developed by Near, with infrastructure assistance.
