Once upon a time, Amazon Web Services (AWS), the leading cloud computing platform, was looking for a way to scale its enterprise and government solutions to meet the growing demand from its customers. After evaluating several options, AWS decided to tap Avalanche, a cutting-edge technology for scaling decentralized systems.
With Avalanche, AWS was able to create a highly scalable and decentralized network that could handle the large number of transactions and data storage required by its enterprise and government customers. This network, which was built on top of the existing AWS infrastructure, allowed AWS to offer its customers faster, more secure and more reliable services.
The benefits of Avalanche for AWS customers were significant. They could now process transactions much faster and with greater security than before. And because the network was decentralized, there was no single point of failure, meaning that the system was more resilient to attacks and outages.
AWS’s decision to use Avalanche also had a major impact on the broader technology industry. It demonstrated the potential of Avalanche for scaling decentralized systems, and many other companies in the industry began to explore how they could use the technology to improve their own services.
As a result of this successful adoption, AWS and Avalanche partnership continued to grow and improve to offer more advanced solution for their client. It was a win-win for both parties and for their customers, and it solidified AWS’s position as a leader in the cloud computing industry.
Cloud-computing platform Amazon Web Services will work with Ava Labs to try to bring wider adoption of blockchain technology by enterprises, institutions and governments, the two companies announced in a blog post Wednesday.
The partnership will make it easier for developers to launch and manage nodes on the Avalanche blockchain, as AWS will support for Avalanche’s infrastructure and decentralized applications (dapps).
Ava Labs also plans to add “subnet” deployment, a network within a network, to the AWS Marketplace, enabling both individuals and institutions to easily launch custom subnets.
“It has been a huge boon for both individual and enterprise developers to be able to spin up nodes and test networks on the fly with AWS in whatever legal jurisdiction makes the most sense for them,” Emin Gün Sirer, founder and CEO of Ava Labs, said in the blog post.
Although the partnership with Ava Labs is AWS’ first partnership with a blockchain project, several other blockchains, including Ethereum and other smaller ones, already use AWS to power their networks.
AVAX, Avalanche’s native token, is up 13.5% to $14.55 in the last 24 hours.
