Polygon Labs, the business development team behind the Polygon network, has announced a multi-year, strategic partnership with Google Cloud's Blockchain Node Engine. This move will allow for the support of Polygon's ecosystem, making it easier for developers to deploy and manage nodes while increasing adoption.

Google Cloud's Blockchain Node Engine launched last year to enable developers to easily deploy and manage blockchain nodes on the Google Cloud. By supporting all Polygon protocols, including Polygon proof-of-stake network, Polygon Supernets, and Polygon zkEVM, the partnership will simplify the deployment and management of Polygon nodes.

According to Brendan Farmer, the co-founder of Polygon Labs, the collaboration with Google Cloud will help scale the technology more quickly, ensuring transactions remain fast and fees stay low. In addition, this partnership will provide funding opportunities for web3 start-ups and make it easier and faster for developers to deploy on Polygon proof-of-stake network and Polygon Supernets.

Google Cloud will also be integrating Solana into its Blockchain Node Engine, further increasing its support for the web3 space. This move will make it easier for developers to deploy and manage nodes on Solana and is in line with Google Cloud's expanding presence in the web3 space.

Earlier this week, Google Cloud announced that its "Google for Startups Cloud Program" will now support web3 builders. This program offers up to $200,000 in Google Cloud credits over two years and other technical support for eligible projects raising funds for pre-seed to Series A stages. As part of the alliance, early-stage startups backed by Polygon Ventures are also eligible to participate in the program.

The strategic alliance between Polygon Labs and Google Cloud's Blockchain Node Engine is a significant step forward for the Polygon ecosystem. By simplifying the deployment and management of Polygon nodes, developers will be able to focus on building decentralized applications on the network, ultimately increasing the adoption of Polygon.
