  • Google Cloud partners with Tezos to deploy global blockchain nodes.
  • The collaboration highlights Google Cloud’s strategic push into the Web3 space.
  • Tezos benefits from enhanced infrastructure. 

The ecosystem of decentralized, blockchain-based applications, also known as Web3, has seen significant growth recently. So much so that major tech companies have started to cater to it, adapting their infrastructure for its unique demands.  


Most recently, Google Cloud has shown off its capabilities to support Web3 projects in a partnership with Tezos. Tezos will use Google’s extensive infrastructure to deploy archive globes worldwide. 

Google Cloud’s Move into Web3 with Tezos Partnership

On Monday, June 17, Google’s cloud infrastructure arm, Google Cloud, revealed the latest development in its partnership with the blockchain network Tezos. Namely, Google Cloud enables Tezos to deploy secure and resilient archive nodes across all continents. 

Tezos utilized Google Cloud’s infrastructure to set up archive nodes across all continents. These nodes, which store over 1TB of data each, were set up in under two hours using Google Cloud’s infrastructure. 

The rapid deployment makes it possible to archive nodes quickly, enhancing the security of the Tezos blockchain. 

"Google Cloud allowed us to get archive nodes across the world very quickly," Chris Pinnock, Head of Information Technology at the Tezos Foundation explained. "We are able to use Filestore to move terabytes of data and bring up nodes using that data in under two hours. Moreover, we were able to add monitoring immediately using Google Cloud's uptime checks."

The collaboration between Google Cloud and Tezos has been ongoing for some time. In February 2023, Google Cloud became a validator for Tezos, helping secure its network. What is more, the partnership is part of Google’s broader initiative in the Web3 space. 

Google Cloud Goes All in on Web3

Google Cloud has made significant investments in the Web3 space, hoping to benefit from the growth of the industry. Its initiatives include a dedicated Web3 Portal to serve as a resource for developers and projects in the space. 


The cloud provider also launched a Web3 Startup Program, which provides up to $200,000 in credits over two years for Google Cloud and Firebase, its easy-to-use development platform. 

Other initiatives include a Blockchain Node Engine, a fully managed service that streamlines the process of deploying and managing blockchain nodes. 

On the Flipside

  • Reliance on a centralized cloud provider may conflict with the principles of decentralization in blockchain.
  • Advanced cloud services can be expensive, potentially limiting accessibility for smaller projects.

Why This Matters

Google Cloud has significant resources both in terms of capital and know-how. Its involvement in Web3 will help scale the industry significantly.
