Developing Blockchain solutions for enterprise customers just got simpler for Google Cloud users, thanks to a partnership between Google and a distributed ledger technology startup led by former JPMorgan executive Blythe Masters.
Reported on Monday, the collaboration will see Digital asset provider a software development kit (SDK) to developers working on Google Cloud, allowing them to test and build blockchain applications without writing the code for complete platform themselves.
Head of Financial Services Platform at Google Cloud, Mr. Leonard Law, stated in a statement that distributed ledger technology has great potential for clients in many industries.
“DLT has great potential to benefit clients not just in the financial services industry, but across many industries, and we’re thrilled to bring these developer tools to Google Cloud.”
CEO of Digital Asset and the former CFO of JPMorgan’s investment bank, Blythe Masters, added, ” We’re collaborating with Google Cloud to give developers with a full stack solution so they can unleash the potential for web-paced innovation in the blockchain. It will lower the technical hurdles to DLT application development by delivering our advanced distributed ledger platform and modeling language to Google Cloud.”
At last, Digital Assets hopes that the partnership will push more developers to its Digital Asset Modeling Language (DAML) platform-as-a-service (PaaS) program, which will soon be accessible through Google Cloud’s Orbitera application marketplace.
The company claims that developers will have access to an “end-to-end toolkit to build and deploy sophisticated distributed applications.”
Google is merely the latest cloud computing providers to deploy tools for blockchain developers.
Prior this year, Amazon web services (AWS) introduced blockchain templates for Ethereum and enterprise platform Hyperledger Fabric. As with the new partnership between Digital Assets and Google Cloud, the AWS blockchain templates enables developers to build and implement DLT applications without writing the underlying source code from scratch.
