Ava Labs, the developer of the Avalanche network, has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to implement new features intended to make running a node easier, according to a January 11 blog post from Ava Labs.
It has been reported that the new features include one-click node deployment through the AWS Marketplace, AWS GovCloud integration for decentralized app (DApp) developers concerned about compliance, and the ability to create Avalanche subnets with just a few clicks.
Emin Gün Sirer, the CEO of Ava Labs, stated that AWS has been an important part of the Avalanche ecosystem in the past, as it has allowed DApp developers to easily launch nodes to test their software. He expects these new features to make AWS even more useful to Avalanche DApp developers.
“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. I’m proud that we’ve implemented a protocol that can accommodate millions of participants with near-instant finality. Our work with Amazon can accelerate the positive impact of Avalanche.”
Thus, AWS isn’t the first cloud-computing system that Ava Labs has partnered with. In December, it formed a similar relationship with Alibaba Cloud.
