Aliyun, or Alibaba Cloud, is a famous subset of the e-commerce giant in China- Alibaba, and it recently announced that it would be integrating with the blockchain of Avalanche to power the company’s initiatives regarding Node-as-a-Service.
The partnership of this blockchain with Aliyun will see the creation of such tools that would be enabling users to launch several validator nodes on the public blockchain platform of this exchange in Asia. This integration will also allow the developers of the blockchain to use the plug-and-play infrastructure of Alibaba Cloud to launch new validators. Most of the developers that would be expecting high resource demands during the peak hours would also be able to tap into the resources that have been considered to be an addition- distribution, storage, and computing- that has been offered by Alibaba Cloud.
Avalanche Will Be Collaborating With Alibaba Cloud
According to this announcement, Avalanche could be hosting around 1200 validators and would be processing close to 2 million daily transactions. The scale of this partnership is said to be massive, which seems normal since Alibaba Cloud does stand as the largest service provider of the Asian cloud in the Asia-Pacific region.
As a major part of this integration, the cloud service did run a special promotion by offering the developers of the blockchain credit towards any of their devices. The blockchain has been currently powering around 1,000 different projects- which also include several decentralized finance ecosystems such as BENQi, Curve, Chainlink, and Sushi.
Bo Shen, a Chinese venture capitalist, who is also a general partner of the Venture Capital called Fenbushi Capital, also claimed to have lost around $42 million from the Trust Wallet- something that Avalanche could actually assist with.
