Google Cloud Joins Tezos

Google Cloud forged a collaboration with Tezos, a decentralized Web3 company, to simplify the process for customers to construct and maintain applications on top of Tezos blockchain. A validator is an entity that becomes a “baker” on the Tezos network, allowing it to participate and contribute to its operation.

The partnership also comprises the integration of Tezos Blockchain into the Google Cloud Platform, which makes it easier for developers and businesses to construct and maintain applications on top of Tezos. This adds Tezos as another network that Google Cloud customers can access, alongside other blockchain projects such Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Litecoin, Hedera Hashgraph, Polygon and others.

Tezos incubated startups can receive Google credits and tutorials.

The Essence of Blockchain

For Google Cloud, this Web3-centric service is essential to meet the increasing number of its customers who want to implement their applications in a simple manner, enabling them to accelerate the development and deployment process. In this regard, James Tromans, Director of Web3 Engineering at Google Cloud, stated:

We know how important it is to have good knowledge. This allows us to provide different options that can support most of the products and services that blockchain developers are looking to build.

Furthermore, Tromans mentioned that one of the greatest accomplishments of the partnership is the ability for Google Cloud customers to simply run nodes. This allows developers to focus their efforts on building their products and leaves no room for administration or maintenance. “Running nodes at scale is time consuming, expensive, and ultimately takes attention away from building core products,” he said.

Tezos is currently involved in an effort to digitize all California Register automobile titles to the Blockchain, as the California Department of Motor Vehicles announced in January.
