POKT Network Inc. Brings Google Cloud Infrastructure Innovations to Web3

Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership between Pocket Network Inc., Google Cloud, and 66degrees, a Google Cloud Partner. Pocket and our network’s solutions are closely collaborating with Google Cloud to optimize decentralized infrastructure while tapping into the growing Web3 ecosystem. This partnership with Google Cloud aligns two different worlds - the cloud infrastructure world and the rapidly evolving, decentralized Web3 world - creating opportunities for innovation and growth in both.

Migrating our cloud presence to Google Cloud will generate greater cost efficiencies and a single, long-term partnership in the cloud. Our collaboration with Google Cloud and 66degrees will enable Pocket Network Inc. (PNI) to scale our existing gateway solutions effectively, providing a critical backbone for the Web3 ecosystem. Our focus on building a scalable, sustainable business model on top of the Pocket ecosystem has been a driving force of this partnership.

"We are excited to partner with Pocket Network Inc. to help accelerate the growth of the Web3 ecosystem," said Richard Widmann, Head of Web3 Strategy, Google Cloud. "With this partnership, we will continue to drive innovation for our customers through our secure and scalable technology. 

What this means for Pocket Network Inc. 

For PNI, this partnership enables us to consolidate our cloud presence with one partner, bringing significant cost efficiencies and even further scalability to the Pocket ecosystem. Migration to Google Cloud improves scalability, agility, and cost efficiency. Google Cloud’s professional services assist organizations in planning, executing, and optimizing their cloud migration strategy.

"Partnering with Google Cloud is a significant step for PNI as we continue to empower developers to build decentralized applications on top of unstoppable infrastructure," said Michael O'Rourke, CEO of Pocket Network Inc. "With this partnership, we'll be able to optimize the network even further, ensuring that our infrastructure solutions are scalable and reliable for our growing number of users. We look forward to working with Google Cloud in optimizing the future of Web3 infrastructure."

What this means for 66degrees

The 66degrees’ technical team presented a deep level of Google Cloud expertise that solidified our partnership with them. This migration will provide a faster consolidation to the cloud - reducing cost and engineering time.

In addition to 66degrees’ expertise in Google Cloud, we furthered our partnership opportunities with the exciting alignment of our marketing efforts with 66degrees, including celebrating Web3 infrastructure at ETHDenver - bringing together the top minds in the blockchain industry. Our commitment with 66degrees supports and drives innovation across decentralized ecosystems.

“Since the onset of our partnership, we've been impressed by Pocket's dedication to doing what's right for their ecosystem, people, and partners. Our technical team aligned seamlessly, and we hit the ground running in consolidating and simplifying their infrastructure on Google Cloud,” says Macabee Greenwald, Account Executive at 66degrees.

Our Commitment

Pocket will benefit from Google Cloud's leading cloud expertise, security, and scalability while leveraging 66degrees' specialization in cloud services and infrastructure optimization. This will ultimately position PNI to continue to deliver optimized solutions to our existing network with a strong foundation for future growth. As the Web3 space continues to evolve, PNI remains committed to providing the necessary solutions, and this partnership is a clear indication of that commitment.
