Digital Asset and Google Collaborate to Bring Blockchain Solutions to the Cloudby Company Announcement July 25, 2018
Digital Asset, a provider of distributed ledger solutions announced a new collaboration with Google Cloud to bring Digital Asset’s blockchain platform and developer tools to Google Cloud Platform.
Developers now have access to a comprehensive suite of tools and services to build, test and deploy distributed ledger applications on-demand and without having to configure the underlying platform.
Blythe Masters, CEO of Digital Asset said,
“We’re partnering with Google Cloud to provide developers with a full stack solution so they can unleash the potential for web-paced innovation in blockchain. This will reduce the technical barriers to DLT application development by delivering our advanced distributed ledger platform and modelling language to Google Cloud.”
Google Cloud also joined the private beta of Digital Asset’s developer program, which provides a select group of technology partners, software vendors and global financial institutions with access to the Software Development Kit (SDK) for DAML, the Digital Asset Modeling Language. Solution Architects across Google now have access to the DAML SDK Developer Preview to explore blockchain applications with their clients.
DAML is a powerful, intuitive smart contract language designed specifically for use in Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) applications that align business processes across organizations. It simplifies the task of writing smart contracts by treating agreements and the parties to them as native constructs and hiding ledger details from the developer, and contains guardrails to protect against delivering contracts that can produce unpredictable results.
In collaboration with Google Cloud, Digital Asset has expanded its developer program to include the DAML Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on Google Cloud Platform. The DAML PaaS is a fully-managed solution that developers can use to test and deploy DLT applications, accessible through Google Cloud’s Orbitera application marketplace technologies. Combined with the DAML SDK, developers now have an end-to-end toolkit to build and deploy sophisticated distributed applications.
Leonard Law, Head of Financial Services Platform at Google Cloud said,
“We are delighted to innovate with Digital Asset in the distributed ledger space. DLT has great potential to benefit customers not just in the financial services industry, but across many industries, and we’re excited to bring these developer tools to Google Cloud.”
Digital Asset will be speaking at Google Cloud Next and Leadership Circle events in San Francisco on July 24. Later this year, Google Cloud will host developer conferences for DAML in New York and London.
