Google would launch a cloud-based Node search engine for ETH developers, the company announced. It will be officially called Blockchain Node Engine, and it will offer fully managed services. Users will not be permitted to recruit their teams to evaluate or regulate their nodes.
Properties of Google Cloud Node Engine
Google uniquely designed the cloud node engine that will serve ETH developers. No user will be allowed to disrupt the activities of the service engine in any way.
The company promised to scrutinize the nodes actively and renew them if needed. This will be done, especially when anything goes wrong. And anything that will slow down the network will undoubtedly be averted.
One of the properties of the Node is Cloud Armor Security Service. The Engine is designed to arrest Denial Of Service (DDOS) attacks that down networks. It will also help to prevent spam in various ways.
In addition, the nodes will function behind a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Firewall. This will allow users to select the type of permissions that they want. Users can also select the geographical location of their nodes.
Google said, “Nodes-that are containers that code for crypto networks. They are vital Web3 constructing blocks for the ETH network to run smoothly. The number of a network’s nodes determines its decentralized features and security.”
How Will Google Cloud Node Engine Operate?
Though Google has been operating globally, the company wants to be the pioneer of Web3. Google’s Web3 developer Richard Widmann said he is trying to build a gigantic bridge. He revealed this in a chat with Decrypt at the Mainnet conference.
Google Controller of Cloud Web3 James Tromans said that the Node would help to prevent network failures. However, he identified that network failures always occur due to some factors.
In a network failure situation, there is an infrastructural problem. Network providers like Google can increase the quality of the nodes, and there will be stability. Tromans revealed this during an interview with Decrypt online news.
Google would support only Ethereum (ETH) nodes at launch but will still expand its coverage. Google’s Node Engine will soon support other crypto networks before the last quarter of 2023.
While Google is making a significant move to secure the Web3 network, especially for ETH. The Node Engine may raise the competition rate between google and other service providers. Widmann said he knew this possibility and did not want google to take over Web3.
