Digital Asset, a provider of distributed ledger solutions fronted by former JPMorgan Chase executive Blythe Masters, is to bring its blockchain platform and developer tools to the Google Cloud Platform.
Developers now have access to a suite of tools and services to build, test and deploy distributed ledger applications on-demand and without having to configure the underlying platform.
“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,” says Masters. “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 has also joined the private beta of Digital Asset’s developer programme, 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 Modelling Language. Solution architects across Google now have access to the DAML SDK Developer Preview to explore blockchain applications with their clients.
DAML is a smart contract language designed specifically for use in DLT applications that align business processes across organisations. 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.
In collaboration with Google Cloud, Digital Asset has expanded its developer programme to include the DAML Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on Google Cloud Platform. It is accessible through Google Cloud’s Orbitera application marketplace technologies.
“We are delighted to innovate with Digital Asset in the distributed ledger space,” says Leonard Law, Head of Financial Services Platform at Google Cloud. “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.”
