Solana Launches Nodes on AWS
At Breakpoint 2023, Solana dropped a bombshell by announcing a major advancement in blockchain integration and availability. Solana nodes may now be deployed on AWS for the first time using the Node Runner application.
According to the official statement, this achievement opens the door for corporations and businesses internationally to connect with the Solana network with “unparalleled ease.”
Following Ethereum’s lead, the Node Runner App on AWS Cloud now supports the Solana blockchain. The network’s creators see this as a watershed moment since it allows more companies to benefit from blockchain technology.
Now that Solana’s nodes can be accessed via AWS, installing consensus and RPC nodes is “seamless” and requires nothing in the way of infrastructure. According to the statement, businesses may “effortlessly” integrate their dApps onto the blockchain, “unleashing the full potential of Solana’s massive capacity and low transaction fees.”
Dan Albert, a representative of the Solana Foundation, has spoken out about the positive impact of this change, saying:
“For the Solana eco-system, this is a positive development. Deploying on Solana is now simpler than ever because of the dramatic reduction in technical knowledge required to operate a node.”
This accessibility is a significant accomplishment since it has the ability to bring on board additional customers and businesses, particularly for big conventional banking organizations and web3-native projects that need heavy node utilization. However, they may not have the means to launch on their own, either in terms of infrastructure or funding.
Access to blockchain technology has been greatly facilitated by AWS Cloud’s Blockchain Node Runner program. With the integration of Solana, AWS continues to empower enterprises and projects, allowing them to deploy RPC nodes rapidly and effectively.
This not only helps get dApps out the door faster, but also guarantees that businesses all around the world may take benefit of Solana’s high throughput and cheap costs. Sr. Solutions Architect at AWS Cloud Nikolov Volsov expressed his enthusiasm for this merger:
“We are pleased to see Solana blockchain nodes ready for deployment on AWS, as this will allow us to take full use of their blockchain workloads and so broaden participation in cutting-edge, cloud-native technologies like the decentralized web.”
The collaboration between Solana and AWS Cloud via the Node Runner app is a major step in simplifying and popularizing blockchain technology, according to the release. Solana’s high throughput and inexpensive costs, as well as its straightforward setup procedure, are now available to businesses throughout the globe.
Together, these entities have the ability to boost the Solana ecosystem. The blockchain sector, however, has taken a significant stride toward mainstream acceptance and implementation of decentralized systems. Currently, SOL’s price is still going up, showing a 15% gain over the past week.
