Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon’s cloud-service arm, has added two new services to its platform to increase accessibility for blockchain developers.
Introduced on July 27, Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) Access and Query are cloud tools that help Web3 developers in building scalable applications rapidly and securely.
According to AWS, AMB Access aims to broaden serverless offerings for nodes on non-mining blockchains. This service allows developers to use instant call Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs) without specialized blockchain infrastructure.
“I expect this easy to incorporate functionality will enable new mainstream applications ranging from interacting with digital assets to creating new ways of engaging consumers and their brands,” said Saman Michael Far, VP of Financial Services Technology at AWS.
This announcement follows AWS’s recent expansion of Amazon Bedrock. The fully managed foundation model service includes more models and a provider. This extended accessibility makes it easier for clients to build generative AI apps.
Earlier this year, Amazon posted a job listing for a “Senior GTM Specialist, Web3” role on its LinkedIn site. This position is a part of the “Web3 Go-To-Market (GTM) team,” focused on promoting the adoption of Web3 workloads on AWS.
CoinDesk confirmed that Amazon would support digital tokens on its e-commerce platform. Based on an official email, a digital token was placed in a gallery on the official Amazon website, but the link provided didn’t work properly.
The email mentioned potential resale opportunities for the NFT, requiring it to be “unlocked” first. To list the NFT for resale, users must “register as a reseller.” A new “digital assets enterprise” concentrating on “blockchain-based gaming and related NFT applications” was first reported by Blockworks earlier this year.
In January, Amazon Web Services revealed a collaboration with Ava Labs — developer of the Avalanche network — to enhance its enterprise blockchain offerings. However, there were no mentions of plans for NFTs or a digital collectibles marketplace.
AWS will support Avalanche’s infrastructure and decentralized applications (dApps), making it easier for developers to work with blockchain technology. Ava Labs plans to introduce Subnet deployment as a managed service on the AWS Marketplace. With just a few clicks, it allows individuals and institutions to launch custom Subnets — sovereign networks with their own rules and tokenomics.
This feature will distribute validators securing the Subnet across different regions and availability zones for increased robustness. Subnets also allow projects to stake their native token, AVAX, while building their own layer-1 or layer-2 blockchains.
John Wu, president of Ava Labs, pointed out that this marks the start of a much larger endeavor, emphasizing that Subnets will let developers “spin up their own blockchain, a full blockchain, in Amazon very easily.”
On Thursday, Occidental announced that it had partnered with AWS to support its digital transformation strategy. Occidental will move its production systems and applications to AWS for a more flexible, scalable, and secure IT infrastructure.
This migration will allow them to use many cloud services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), to adapt to the energy market’s supply and demand changes.
