Huawei Cloud Forays into Web3 with its Node Engine Service

Huawei Cloud Forays into Web3 with its Node Engine Service

Huawei, the Chinese multinational tech company, is taking its Huawei Cloud services to Web3 with its Node Engine Services (NES), Chinese crypto journalist Colin Wu first reported.

Developed by Huawei Cloud, the NES is a blockchain node engine platform designed to streamline the management of blockchain networks, resource allocation, and authentication. It also provides developers with the capability to connect to popular blockchain networks including Ethereum, TRON, Polygon, Arbitrum, Starknet, Optimism, and other L2 solutions, speeding up dApp development and usage.

Currently, NES offers full-node services with complete hosting capabilities and can be used by:

  • DApp developers and users: They can configure nodes to interact with blockchains with dispatch.
  • Staking node carriers and individuals: They can use NES to host Ethereum full nodes, including execution and beacon nodes, and run validator nodes to connect with the hosted nodes.

Huawei Cloud claims that the NES has 99.99% reliability and second-level node fault detection and recovery. Its predictive analytics and topology algorithm optimization engines give staking carriers/individuals access to their Ethereum validator nodes.

Nodes on Huawei Cloud can be staked separately. Developers interested in using Huawei Cloudā€™s staking node are required to purchase it, activate a validator, and interconnect the node with the validator. User guides to the NES and the staking nodes are available. Developers can also access guides to the Ethereum Node Engine and TRON Node Engine.

In the introductions to the Ethereum Node Engine and TRON Node Engine, Huawei Cloud assured users that it will never collect their blockchain addresses. 

Huawei Cloud joins the likes of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud in offering managed blockchain node services. In February, Huawei Cloud announced plans to integrate blockchain into its cloud services.

AWS announced its Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) service in April 2019 while Microsoft launched its Azure Blockchain Service a month later. In September 2021, Microsoft sunset the Azure Blockchain Service, replacing it with the Quorum Blockchain Service (QBS). Last October, Google Cloud introduced its Blockchain Node Engine as it sought to expand its Web3 footprint.Ā
