Polygon announces partnership with Google Cloud

In recent days in Austin, Texas, the famous Consensus 2023 crypto event was held, during which Google Cloud and Polygon Labs announced a multi-year partnership.

The goal is to accelerate the adoption of blockchain technology within enterprises. 

Through this partnership, tools and enterprise infrastructure will be provided to developers to accelerate growth through the use of Polygon protocols. 

What is Polygon 

Polygon is the main layer-2 of Ethereum, and Polygon Labs is the company that develops solutions on the Polygon network. 

Polygon Labs already collaborates with other ecosystem developers, and over time has developed a suite of protocols that precisely allow developers to gain easy access to major scaling solutions, such as rollups, sidechains, hybrid chains, enterprise chains, and so on. 

There are now tens of thousands of decentralized apps using Polygon’s solutions, with more than 1.18 million smart contracts created and 2.48 billion total transactions processed. 

For example, some of the leading Web3 projects, such as Aave, Uniswap, and OpenSea, are hosted on the Polygon network, and the network is used by companies such as Robinhood, Stripe, and Adobe. 

Google Cloud and the partnership with Polygon 

Google Cloud is nothing more than Google’s cloud. 

It is a suite of business solutions that leverage Google’s technology to accelerate the ability of organizations to digitally transform their businesses. 

It has customers in more than 200 countries, and often acts as a trusted partner to solve even critical business problems.

Polygon Labs and Google Cloud are planning joint engineering and go-to-market initiatives to make it easier for companies to create their own Web3 products and decentralized applications (dApps). 

Among Polygon’s solutions that will be featured in this collaboration are Polygon PoS, Polygon Supernet and Polygon zkEVM. 

Google Cloud Marketplace

Google Cloud’s goal is to become the strategic cloud service provider for Polygon protocols. 

Indeed, the Google Cloud Marketplace already offers developers the ability to deploy a Polygon PoS node very quickly and easily, so they can power dApps with ease and speed. 

The Polygon blockchain dataset was listed on the Google Cloud Marketplace back in 2021 as part of the Google Cloud Public Dataset program. 

With that set, developers can integrate its data within their BigQuery, or enterprise data warehouse on Google Cloud, using Polygon PoS or Polygon Supernet to analyze it in real-time on-chain and cross-chain.

Polygon Supernets is a dedicated app chain that allows them to customize and extend the blockspace. By the end of the third quarter of 2023, Polygon Labs will enable the deployment of its DevNet on Google Cloud. 

The Blockchain Node Engine

Google Cloud will also bring to the Polygon ecosystem its fully managed node hosting service, the so-called Blockchain Node Engine.

The Blockchain Node Engine support for purpl will allow developers to configure and run their Polygon PoS nodes automatically, so they can focus on growth, while still maintaining complete control over where nodes are deployed. 

Indeed, in this way, developers will be able to easily and quickly complete the processes associated with provisioning, maintaining and operating their dedicated blockchain nodes, greatly reducing the resources committed to this in terms of time and money. 

Comments regarding the new collaboration

Google Cloud’s Customer Engineering and Web3 Go-to-Market CEO for Asia Pacific, Mitesh Agarwal, said: 

“The industry is experiencing a flight to quality as corporations seek to minimize risk when exploring new possibilities in Web3.
Building on our work over the past few years, Google Cloud is helping the industry achieve escape velocity by directing our engineering efforts toward areas like improving data availability and enhancing the resilience and performance of scaling protocols like zero-knowledge proofs. 
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.”

Polygon Labs President Ryan Wyatt added: 

“Google Cloud supporting all of the Polygon protocols is a step in the right direction to help onboard more people into Web3.
Today’s announcement with Google Cloud aims to increase transaction throughput enabling use cases in gaming, supply chain management, and DeFi.
This will pave the way for even more businesses to embrace blockchain technology through Polygon.”
