Tezos has teamed up with Google Cloud to expand the reach of Web3 technology. This is according to an official statement released on Wednesday through the Tezos Foundation. The collaboration should spur institution adoption and create mass-market opportunities for Web3 technology.
In a tweet, the nonprofit foundation that supports the Tezos blockchain notes that the collaboration will allow Google Cloud customers to deploy Tezos nodes and also build Web3 applications on the blockchain.
Tezos is one of the largest smart contract protocols that powers decentralized applications. So far, it has been adopted by corporate clients such as Ubisoft and the California Department of Motor Vehicles. And now, Google.
The collaboration with its cloud computing entity will allow companies and developers to host and deploy Remote Procedure Call (RPC) nodes for Web3 applications using the Tezos network and Google Cloud infrastructure.
“The Tezos Foundation will provide new and existing Google Cloud customers access to its corporate baking program. Through the program, Tezos will offer Google Cloud customers that are interested in building Web3 applications, easy deployment of nodes and indexers on the Tezos protocol.”
All Google Cloud Clients and Tezos Users Will Benefit
It’s not only Google Cloud clients that will benefit from this partnership, however; Tezos incubator startups will also reap the benefits. A select few will receive Google Cloud credits and mentorship through the Google for Startups Cloud Program.
Commenting on the partnership, James Tromans, Engineering Director, Web at Google Cloud, notes, “At Google Cloud, we’re providing secure and reliable infrastructure for Web3 founders and developers to innovate and scale their applications.”
This partnership indicates Google Cloud’s growing interest in decentralized technology. At the start of last year, the entity established a dedicated team to tackle digital assets. The goal was to facilitate the growth and advancement of the blockchain ecosystem. Today, the team is responsible for assisting Google Cloud clients to generate, exchange, preserve value, and introduce novel products on blockchain-powered platforms.
