Orbs has been fully integrated on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), one of the leading cloud infrastructure providers, thus enabling developers to quickly deploy and test applications on their preferred cloud ecosystem.
The integration follows previous deployments on Amazon Machine Image, a subset of Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Microsoft Azure. Now, developers using Google’s cloud environment will be able to seamlessly deploy a virtual machine image and start testing and developing on Orbs.
Available on the Google Cloud Marketplace, the Orbs developer kit includes all the necessary tools for developing smart contracts on Orbs. These include the following.
- Gamma, Orbs’ node software that can be spun into a private blockchain accessible from GCP
- Prism, the block explorer for Orbs blockchains
- Sandkasten, an IDE for writing Orbs smart contracts
The Orbs developer kit cuts down on development time significantly, offering a ready-to-go sandbox that can be operated on three of the most popular tools for hosting and deploying web applications. Instructions on how to deploy Orbs Gamma on AWS, GCP and Azure are available on Orbs’ website.
Co-founder of Orbs, Tal Kol, said,
“Google Cloud is the last of the three major cloud providers that features an integrated Orbs dev kit. This means that developers have a much easier time developing Orbs smart contracts and testing them against local instances, resulting in significant time savings. With Orbs, testing in production is unnecessary.”
Orbs is the project that connects enterprise and decentralized finance ecosystems, having recently brought forward a number of initiatives in DeFi. Its most significant development is the Liquidity Nexus, launched in March 2021. The proposal aims to leverage Orbs’s strengths in enterprise to connect real world companies to DeFi liquidity, letting them earn yield while enabling a new source of liquidity for the DeFi world. DeFi developers building on Orbs can get the best of both worlds, combining full interoperability and access to Ethereum with an efficient, scalable and modular blockchain platform.
Orbs is a public blockchain infrastructure designed for mass usage applications here, or join any of communities below.offering developers a proper mix of performance, cost, security and ease of use. The Orbs protocol is decentralized and executed by a public network of permissionless validators using proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus. For more information, please visit us
