Under the partnership, Ava Labs will also join AWS Activate, extending AWS credit advantages to builders within the Avalanche ecosystem.
IT service management company Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Ava Labs have come together to advance blockchain adoption by enterprises, institutions, and governments. Notably, Ava Labs is developing layer-1 blockchain Avalanche, and AWS supports its infrastructure, dApp ecosystem, and one-click node deployment via the AWS Marketplace. The joint venture aims to make it easier for individuals to launch and manage nodes on Avalanche. At the same time, the partnership will build on the network’s strength and flexibility for developers.
Ava Labs’ CEO and Founder Emin Gün Sirer commented on the new relationship with Amazon Web Services. She stated:
“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.”
Ava Labs and AWS Partner
With the help of the Subnet deployments Ava Labs intends to add to the AWS Marketplace, institutions and individuals will find it easier to launch custom Subnet with a few clicks. In addition, this feature includes the ability to distribute validators to secure the Subnet. And the Subnet will also easily help developers spin up their own blockchain in Amazon. Ava Labs president John Wu explained that Avalanche started the development of about five to six live Subnets in the last quarter. However, more than 100 Subnets will be deployed in the next six to 12 months.
Under the partnership, Ava Labs will also join AWS Activate, extending AWS credit advantages to builders within the Avalanche ecosystem. Wu said developers can use AWS Activate, an excellent resource, to offer apps to the public “with Avalanche’s trailblazing speed, security, and scalability at their core.”
The Vice President and Global Head of Startups of AWS, Howard Wright, commented:
“At AWS, we are all about bringing the most cutting-edge technologies to builders, no matter if they sit in a multi-million-dollar enterprise, a government office, or a dorm. The new capabilities brought by Avalanche enable us to do that. We are thrilled to add an innovator like Ava Labs to our partner network and to support new tooling for Avalanche’s infrastructure and ecosystem, helping to expand its adoption to new geographies and customer segments.”
Furthermore, the collaborators are jointly working on events for developers and entrepreneurs. Such events include Avalanche Creates, Avalanche Summit, and hackathons. These events will focus on technical and non-technical individuals to help build on Avalanche.
