Avalanche Partners with Amazon Web Services, AVAX Rallies 25%

Avalanche has announced a partnership with cloud-computing platform Amazon Web Services (AWS) to bring wider adoption of blockchain technology by enterprises, institutions, and governments. 

Avalanche Partners with Amazon

Ava Labs, the company building out layer-1 blockchain Avalanche, announced Wednesday, January 11th, that it will work with AWS to help scale blockchain adoption across enterprises, institutions, and governments. 

As part of the partnership, Ava Labs will offer its “Subnet deployment” as a service through the AWS Marketplace. Any organization can enlist Ava Labs via AWS to launch a custom Subnet.

Howard Wright, VP and Global Head of Startups, AWS, said his company will help expand Avalanche adoption “to new geographies and customer segments” and “support new tooling for Avalanche’s infrastructure and ecosystem.”

Subnets are like custom blockchains built on Avalanche. Subnets have custom rulesets and allow organizations deploying them even to launch their own unique tokens.
