Google wants to earn a place in providing infrastructure for Web3.
The cloud giant announces the deployment of a node engine service. It is a cloud-based technology that will benefit several Ethereum projects.
Focus on Blockchain Node Engine
What is the name given to this new Google product? Blockchain NodeEngine. Thanks to this fully managed service, it will no longer be necessary to deploy one or more teams for regular maintenance or monitoring of the nodes. That said, Google says it will actively inspect nodes and make sure to reboot if something goes wrong.
Blockchain Node Engine consists of a multitude of options. We can cite, in particular, Cloud Armor, the purpose of which is to thwart DDos that seek to spam, which will certainly have a detrimental effect on the networks.
Also according to Google, a VPC firewall will stand in front of the nodes. Thus, each user will be free to customize their authorization. As far as customers are concerned, they will be able to select the geographical area where their nodes will be launched.
For information, these are containers whose mission is torun code for cryptocurrency networks. Nodes are thus very important to Web3. They guarantee, among other things, the operation of Ethereum and many other similar networks. In short, a network with a large number of nodes will evolve faster, and this, in the greatest security.
Senior Google executives explain new Web3 service
Today, the reach of Google services extends to every corner of the planet. Moreover, the company is well aware of this. This is one of the reasons that led him to operate in Web3 infrastructures. Its Web3 strategy manager, Richard Widman stated in an interview with Decryptwhen mainnet conference that the goal is to build a sort of giant bridge. This infrastructure will then be used to rally the classic technology industry and Web3. Among other things, it will be able to offer better cloud services.
On this subject will be added another declaration, that of James Tromans who is director of Google Cloud Web3. Indeed, the public wondered about the help that the node engine could bring in network failures. For the senior manager, failures are produced “for a number of different reasons”. “In situations where the underlying infrastructure fails, the more vendors that offer high-quality node infrastructure like Google Cloud’s, the more redundancy we have in place and the less end users are likely to see disturbances » he adds.
Obviously, the multiplication of nodes within the same network makes its overall security more effective. Moreover, there are thousands of nodes in this world capable of acting as a backup. This is useful insofar as nodes will face technical problems, causing a temporary or permanent shutdown.
