Google Cloud Becomes a Solana Validator, Incorporates Solana into Products and Services
Google Cloud revealed on Nov. 5, that it was running a Solana validator after the announcement of a product called Blockchain Node Engine. The cloud division of Google said it is partnering with Solana to incorporate its Blockchain Node Engine into the Solana network.
As part of its products and services, Google Cloud is integrating the Solana project. A Solana validator will be used to generate blocks, allowing the company to validate the Solana network and participate in it.
In addition to becoming a validator, Google Cloud has also been collaborating with Solana to create its Blockchain Node Engine. Blockchain Node Engine provides node-hosting services that simplify node operations. With Solana's inclusion in Blockchain Node Engine, running a Solana node will take significantly less time, increasing its accessibility.?
The official Twitter account of Google Cloud announced that “Google Cloud is running a block-producing [Solana] validator to participate in and validate the network.”?
"Google Cloud is working with [Solana] to bring Blockchain Node Engine to the Solana chain next year, so it will be easy for anyone to launch a dedicated Solana node in the cloud," the company added.
Data from the Solana network is currently being indexed and imported into BigQuery by the company. Through BigQuery data warehouse, the massive database of the Solana blockchain can be accessed quickly and efficiently.
