Users Can Now Launch Avalanche Nodes On Amazon Web Services

The massive adoption of the crypto space since 2018 has also seen a wider audience with institutional investors joining the adopters. Furthermore, to strengthen the adoption rate, institutions had started to start investing in the crypto assets.

Avalanche is a blockchain that has been optimized to support not only Web3 games but also NFTs. The AVAX blockchain also has a unique technology which is known as Subnets. These subnets work like a custom blockchains that has been built on Avalanche, while also having custom rulesets! They can even use their own token instead of Avalanche’s native AVAX for purposes like paying network gas fees!

As a part of the deal that Ava Labs has made with Amazon, Ava Labs will be able to offer “Subnet deployment” as a service by using the AWS Marketplace. In short the meaning of the deal is that any company or organization will be able to enlist Ava Labs in order to launch a custom Subnet for themselves on the AWS platform.

According to the Subnet FAQ, a Subnet which is also referred to as Subnetwork, is a dynamic set of validators working together to achieve consensus on the state of a set of blockchains. Each of the blockchain is validated by exactly one Subnet. One interesting fact is, a Subnet has the capability to validate more than one blockchain!

In a statement, the VP and Global Head of Startups of AWS, Howard Wright said in a statement, “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 just that.

  • Avalanche nodes will also be able to run in the AWS GovCloud for various government-related data storage.
  • Apart from that, Ava Labs is also going to join AWS Activate and the AWS Partner Network (APN) to further reinforce the ties between Avalanche and AWS.
  • According to the announcement, AWS is also looking at taking part in future Avalanche-related events like the Avalanche Summit, Avalanche Creates, and hackathons.
