AWS (Amazon Web Services), a cloud platform, has partnered with Ava Labs to promote the introduction of blockchain technology to companies and government agencies. Both companies made the announcement on January 11.
AWS will support the Avalanche blockchain infrastructure and Dapps (decentralized apps), making it easy to open and manage Avalanche nodes on AWS. Also added Avalanche’s subnet feature to AWS Marketplace, allowing users to easily create subnets.
Emin Gün Sirer, Founder and CEO of Abarabo, said, “Both individual and corporate developers will be able to quickly spin up nodes and test their networks with AWS. It will be a big advantage,” he said.
The partnership with Abarabo is AWS’s first partnership with a blockchain project. However, the Ethereum blockchain and several other smaller blockchains already use AWS to power their chains.
The Avalanche Blockchain’s native cryptocurrency Avalanche (AVAX) is up 13.5% over a 24-hour period to near $14.55 at the time of writing.
