As part of the partnership, Google will bring Blockchain Node Engine, Google’s fully managed node hosting service, to the Polygon ecosystem.
In a recent development, Google Cloud announced a partnership with Polygon Labs. This will allow developers to easily build, launch and scale their Web3 products and other decentralized applications on Ethereum’s Layer 2 scalability platform.
This strategic partnership will help increase transaction throughput unlocking several use cases in the areas of supply chain, gaming and decentralized finance (DeFi) on the Polygon blockchain.
Google Cloud can help accelerate adoption of the core Polygon protocol with enterprise infrastructure and tools.

Also as part of the partnership, Google will bring Blockchain Node Engine, Google’s fully managed node hosting service, to the Polygon ecosystem. This allows developers to focus on building the protocol while having full control over the deployed nodes. It also frees the developer from having to worry about configuring and running his Polygon PoS node.
Additionally, the Google Cloud Marketplace offers developers a simple one-click deployment of Polygon PoS nodes to power their dApps quickly and easily. His Ryan Wyatt, president of Polygon Labs, commented on the development: Said:
“Google Cloud with support for all Polygon protocols is a step in the right direction to help bring more people on board for Web3. We aim to increase the transaction throughput that will enable us to do so, paving the way for more companies to adopt blockchain technology through Polygon.”
Google steps into the world of Web3 with Polygon
Google, which has long dominated the Web2 market, is entering the rapidly emerging Web3 world. Most recently, Google launched the “Google for Startups Cloud Program”. It is meant to support startups and emerging projects in the Web3 space and scale their projects faster and more securely.
The Celo Foundation also announced earlier this month that it is working with Google Cloud to offer workshops and other cloud computing services for developers building on Celo and other Web3 founders. The tech powerhouse also said its partnership with Polygon will help the protocol further push its zero-knowledge innovation strategy. This helps make transactions even faster and cheaper.
The statement read:
“For example, in our initial tests to run the Polygon zkEVM zero-knowledge proof on Google Cloud, transactions were significantly faster and cheaper compared to our existing setup.”
Polygon launched its zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) beta last month.
Mitesh Agarwal, Managing Director of Customer Engineering and Web3 Market Development, Asia Pacific, Google Cloud, said:
“Google Cloud is helping the industry achieve escape velocity by directing engineering efforts into areas such as improving data availability and improving the resilience and performance of scaling protocols such as zero-knowledge proofs. .”
