Avalanche and Amazon Partner To Offer Blockchain Nodes to AWS Users

In an effort to accelerate enterprise, institutional, and government adoption of blockchain technology.

Ava Labs, the group behind the Avalanche chain, has just announced a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Through the partnership, Avalanche will launch a variety of new infrastructure features, including node validator tools for enterprise-level businesses and Governments.

The primary goal of the partnership is to accelerate enterprise, institutional, and government adoption of blockchain tech, according to details shared in the Ava Labs announcement.

To achieve this, AWS will support the chain’s infrastructure as well as its decentralized app (dapp) ecosystem. This is said to include one-click node deployment, which is done through the AWS Marketplace — offering vital compliance use case capabilities.

Another major benefit to Ava Labs is the fact that it is now part of the AWS Partner Network or APN, which allows the firm to help customers deploy custom offerings on AWS and connect with more than 100,000 global partners.

“At AWS, we are all about bringing the most cutting-edge technologies to builders, no matter if they sit in a multi-million-dollar enterprise, a government office, or a dorm. The new capabilities brought by Avalanche enable us to do just that,” said Howard Wright, VP and Global Head of Startups at AWS, adding “we’re thrilled to add an innovator like Ava Labs to our partner network and to support new tooling for Avalanche’s infrastructure and ecosystem, helping to expand its adoption to new geographies and customer segments.”

While primarily the goal is to encourage institution-level participation, the chain also plans to add Subnet deployment as a managed service on AWS for individuals as well. This would allow users to launch their own custom Subnets with just a few clicks.

“The AWS-Avalanche cooperation makes it easier for more people to launch and manage nodes on Avalanche, giving the network even more strength and flexibility for developers,” shared the firm.

As part of the partnership Ava Labs is also joining AWS Activate, extending the benefit of AWS credits to builders in the Avalanche ecosystem.

The two are also said to be collaborating on events for entrepreneurs and developers, like Avalanche Summit, Avalanche Creates, and various hackathons — all to help individuals, technically experienced or not, build on the Avalanche ecosystem.
