Quick take:

  • Google Cloud has announced a multi-faceted partnership with Polygon Labs.
  • The partnership will allow developers on Polygon Network to access Google Cloud servers.
  • Polygon joins Ethereum and Solana among blockchains with access to Google Cloud servers.

Google Cloud on Thursday announced a multi-faceted partnership with Polygon Labs. The Alphabet Inc. cloud service unit is expanding its partnership with web3 companies to include more blockchains. 

The company already counts Ethereum and Solana on its list of supported blockchains in its blockchain node engine, but its collaboration with Polygon is far more expansive.

Google Cloud’s multi-year partnership with Polygon will also see it build infrastructure to support Polygon’s recently launched scaling solution zkEVM. The company also plans to help developers deploy application-specific blockchains built with Polygon technology on its servers.

Commenting on the partnership, Ryan Wyatt, president of Polygon Labs said: “Google Cloud supporting all of the Polygon protocols is a step in the right direction to help onboard more people into Web3.”

Moreover, the partnership allows startups backed by Polygon Ventures — the Layer 2 scaling solution’s venture arm — to gain access to Google Cloud’s recently launched web3 startup accelerator program. They will also receive credits to spend on hosting software on Google Cloud’s servers.

“The industry is experiencing a flight to quality as corporations seek to minimize risk when exploring new possibilities in Web3,” Mitesh Agarwal, a managing director at Google Cloud, said in a statement.

Google Cloud’s foray into web3 has seen it form multi-year partnerships with the likes of Coinbase, which allows it to support crypto payments for cloud services. The company also holds a major partnership with Mo Shaikh’s Aptos Labs after joining Aptos’s validator network. 

It is also a node validator on Tezos and announced a partnership with NEAR Foundation to provide infrastructure to Web3 developers building on Remote Procedure Call (RPC) node provider to Pagoda.
