Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) Access, a fully managed service that provides access to public and private blockchains, is adding support for Polygon PoS to offer developers a reliable, scalable and cost-efficient way to build Web3 applications.

AMB Access now supports both the Polygon PoS mainnet as well as the Mumbai testnet in public preview. The access is free of charge during the public preview, although standard AWS data transfer charges still apply, where appropriate.

“We're thrilled to see AWS support Polygon PoS through AMB Access, which further streamlines the development of scalable and mainstream applications,” said TK, TK at Polygon Labs. “AWS keeps expanding its enterprise-ready Web3 infrastructure and developer-friendly tools that businesses require to provide fast, seamless and secure access to applications for Web3 native and mainstream consumers.”

AMB Access Polygon provides instant and serverless access to Polygon PoS with no minimum cost. Developers can now work with Polygon JSON-RPC APIs through always-on endpoints that offer predictable pay-as-you-go pricing to build applications that interact with Polygon PoS. AMB Access Polygon caters to a variety of applications, from use cases calling for repeated and highly-available access to those with intermittent and unpredictable access.

AMB Access Polygon offers developers a numbers of benefits:

  • Faster time to market – start building differentiated aspects of your application without provisioning or setup time;
  • Automatic scaling – scale applications effortlessly with automatic scaling handled by AMB Access as your workload grows;
  • Cost-efficient management – save up to 80% in blockchain node spend compared to self-managed infrastructure, with simple-to-understand, pay-per-request pricing;
  • Production-grade applications – build applications that depend on AWS’s high bar for reliability, security and availability (99.9% uptime).

The following diagram illustrates the architecture for interacting with Polygon PoS from backend applications or directly from a client machine.

Financial services institutions can use AMB Access Polygon to power their own digital asset offerings, many of which require JSON-RPC APIs for reading data from the blockchain as well as broadcasting signed transactions on behalf of users. Developers creating Web3 games can create NFTs to be used within their games and exchanged by players via open marketplaces on Polygon PoS. Consumer brands can offer NFTs as part of a loyalty system to reward their most loyal customers.

A number of projects across multiple industries are already building with AMB Access Polygon. That list includes Magic, a wallet-as-a-service provider that helps businesses onboard users into Web3 with instant non-custodial wallet creation; Mystic Moose, an indie game developer studio and publisher of Mojo Melee; Oasis Pro, a global fintech infrastructure provider for real-world assets and digital securities; and RecoChoku, a leading company in the music streaming industry, focusing on entertainment content services centered around music distribution.

Separately, a strategic collaboration between Animoca, AWS and Polygon Labs was announced earlier this month to accelerate Web3 startup development. MoonRealm Express Accelerator lets developers focus on building innovative real-world solutions and leave the blockchain infrastructure management and scale to AMB Access Polygon.
