Although the crypto market was green on Thursday, some altcoins turned extremely bullish, and one of them is Avalanche (AVAX). It is crucial to note that the AVAX token has been facing some serious downtime amid the prevailing crypto winter. However, things changed for the token in the last 24 hours when it was announced that the organization responsible for the development of the blockchain, Ava Labs, has partnered with tech giant Amazon’s AWS.
According to an announcement, Ava Labs and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have entered into a partnership deal “to accelerate enterprise, institutional, and government adoption” of the Avalanche blockchain, which became quite famous during the 2021 crypto market bull run when platforms were searching for alternatives to the Ethereum Network, which had high gas fees and was congested.
Emin Gün Sirer, Founder and CEO of Ava Labs, commented on the partnership and added that “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,” said Sirer.
As a result of the partnership, it will be easier to run a node on the Avalanche blockchain, and developers will be able to deploy nodes with just one click with the help of AWS Marketplace. Moreover, AWS GovCloud, a part of AWS designed to address specific regulatory and compliance requirements, will also be integrated for the developers of decentralized applications who are worried about compliance issues with regulators.
“Ava Labs plans to add Subnet deployment as a managed service to the AWS Marketplace so both individuals and institutions can launch custom Subnets with just a few clicks. This functionality aims to include a feature to distribute validators securing the Subnet across different regions and availability zones to improve robustness,” the announcement reads.
The Avalanche Twitter crypto community was excited about the announcement, and one of the developers revealed via the social media platform how a node can be run using AWS.
The announcement confirmed that users will be able to easily launch and manage nodes, giving the network even more strength and flexibility for developers. Moreover, Ava Labs has now officially joined AWS Activate, which is a program specially designed for startups and early stage entrepreneurs and is an “excellent resource for developers to bring apps to the masses with Avalanche’s trailblazing speed, security, and scalability at their core,” said John Wu, President of Ava Labs.
Furthermore, Avalanche is now also a part of the AWS Partner Network (APN), “enabling the firm to help customers deploy custom offerings on AWS that are connected to more than 100,000 partners across more than 150 countries.”
On the other hand, as per a previous report from BitcoinWisdom, Sirer is accused of using a proficient law firm called Roche Freedman to sue other crypto projects with the aim of “creating a magnet for regulators” and bringing them down.
