Ava Labs, developer of the Avalanche network (AVAX), has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to implement new features intended to make running a node easier, according to a January 11 blog post from Ava Labs.
The new features include one-click node deployment through the AWS Marketplace, AWS GovCloud integration for Dapp developers concerned about compliance, and the ability to create Avalanche subnets with just a few clicks.
In the announcement post, Ava Labs CEO Emin Gün Sirer stated that AWS has been an important part of the Avalanche ecosystem in the past, as it has allowed Dapp developers to easily launch nodes to test their software.

AWS isn’t the first cloud-computing system that Ava Labs has partnered with. In December, it formed a similar relationship with Alibaba Cloud.
