Google announced that it would launch a cloud-based node for Ethereum (ETH/USD) developers as well as projects, known as the Blockchain Node Engine.
Ethereum is the second largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization and has recently switched to the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism.
Google’s Blockchain Node Engine as a catalyst for growth
Google’s offering will be a fully managed service, and this essentially means that customers will not have to hire their own teams as a means of monitoring or to maintain these nodes.
Google will actively monitor the nodes and restart them at points in time when anything goes wrong. Furthermore, this Blockchain Node ENgine will include a variety of security features, such as Google’s Cloud Armor, designed to prevent denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that spam and slow down networks.
Furthermore, Google claims that these nodes will be behind a VPC firewall that allows users to customize permissions and can choose where their nodes are geographically deployed.
