Google wants to earn a place in providing infrastructure for Web3.
The cloud giant announces the implementation 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 nodes. That said, Google says it will actively inspect the nodes and make sure to reboot if something goes wrong.
Blockchain Node Engine is composed of a multitude of options. We can mention, in particular, Cloud Armor, whose purpose is to thwart DDo attacks that look for spam, which will surely have a damaging effect on networks.
Also according to Google, a VPC firewall will stand in front of the nodes. Therefore, each user will be free to customize their authorization. As for customers, they will be able to select the geographic area in which their nodes will be launched.
For information, these are containers whose mission is torun code for cryptocurrency networks. Nodes are therefore very important for Web3. Among other things, they guarantee the functioning of Ethereum and many other similar networks. In short, a network with a large number of nodes will evolve faster, and this, in maximum security.
Google senior executives explain the new Web3 service
Today, the reach of Google’s services extends to every corner of the planet. Furthermore, the company is well aware of this. This is one of the reasons that led him to operate in Web3 infrastructures. His Web3 strategy manager, Riccardo Widman stated in an interview with Decryptwhen conference on the main network that the goal is to build a kind of giant bridge. This infrastructure will then be used to rally the classic and Web3 technology industry. Among other things, it will be able to offer better cloud services.
On this topic another declaration will be added, that of Giacomo Tromans who is the director of Google Cloud Web3. In fact, the public wondered about the help the node engine could make in the event of a network failure. Failures occur for the senior manager “for various reasons”. “In situations where the underlying infrastructure fails, the more vendors offer a high-quality node infrastructure like Google Cloud, the more redundancy we have in place and the less likely end users are to be disrupted” He adds.
Obviously, the multiplication of nodes within the same network makes its overall security more effective. Furthermore, there are thousands of nodes in this world capable of serving as backups. This is useful to the extent that nodes will face technical problems, causing a temporary or permanent shutdown.
