Google Launches Cloud Node Engine For Ethereum Developers

MARKET_WATCH Blockchain

Google wants to become a key infrastructure provider for Web3. 

 

Google is launching a cloud-based node engine service for Ethereum developers and projects, the tech company announced Thursday.

Officially called Blockchain Node Engine, Google’s offering is a “fully managed service,” meaning customers won’t have to hire their own teams to maintain or monitor their nodes. Instead, Google says it “actively monitors the nodes and restarts them if anything goes wrong.” 

 

The Blockchain Node Engine also includes various security features like Google’s Cloud Armor, which is designed to prevent denial-of-service (DDos) attacks that spam and slow down networks. 

 

Google says its nodes will also exist behind a VPC firewall, which allows users to customize the kind of permissions they want. Customers can also choose where their nodes are geographically deployed.

 

Nodes—which are containers that run code for crypto networks—are an essential Web3 building block and are required for networks like Ethereum to run properly. The more nodes a network has, the more decentralized, scalable, and secure it can become. 

 

Already operating on a global scale, Google is clearly aware of this fact, and wants to be a key player in the Web3 infrastructure space. Richard Widmann, Google’s Head of Web3 Strategy, previously told Decrypt at the Mainnet conference that he’s trying to “build a giant bridge” between the traditional tech industry and Web3 by offering such cloud-based services.
