Alibaba Cloud, or Aliyun, a subset of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, has announced an integration with Avalanche blockchain to power the company’s Node-as-a-Service initiatives, reports Cointelegraph.
Avalanche’s partnership with Alibaba Cloud will see the development of tools that enable users to launch validator nodes on Avalanche’s public blockchain platform in Asia. The integration will allow Avalanche developers to use Alibaba Cloud’s plug-and-play infrastructure as a service to launch new validators.
Developers expecting high resource demands during peak hours can also tap into additional resources — computing, storage, and distribution — offered by Alibaba Cloud.
According to the announcement, Avalanche hosts over 1,200 validators and processes roughly 2 million daily transactions. The scale of the partnership is massive, considering that Alibaba Cloud stands as the largest Asian cloud service provider in the Asia-Pacific region.
