To boost the development of subnets, Ava Labs, the main developer behind the Avalanche blockchain, announced the launch of AvaCloud, a Web3 launchpad which will help businesses build no-code, fully managed blockchain ecosystems.
Avalanche on cloud nine
Subnets are the preferred scaling solution for Avalanche which allow users to create and deploy application-specific blockchain networks. Platforms have a lot to gain from leveraging these app-specific blockchains if they want more control over infrastructure.
However, the process has become complex, time consuming and expensive. This is where AvaCloud comes into the picture.
We are proud to announce the launch of @AvaCloud, the Web3 launchpad for deploying and scaling no-code, fully managed custom blockchains.
AvaCloud marks a landmark shift in the blockchain development process. https://t.co/lT93YZV6sD

AvaCloud product suite consists of four components like automated blockchain builder, managed validators, comprehensive data tools, and chain interoperability.
Using these, businesses can significantly cut down time-to-market and operating costs connected with the deployment of subnets without having to hire Web3 experts.
Ava Labs stated that Korean conglomerate SK, gaming app Blitz, and AAA game studio Shrapnel were among the early users who started building their custom chains using AvaCloud.
Development activity rises
Another factor corroborating Avalanche’s expanding landscape was the growing number of smart contracts and developers. Crypto analyst Alex Wacy drew attention to the strong performance of the proof-of-stake (PoS) chain on these two fronts.
Let's talk about developers:
The engagement of developers is often overlooked, but the number of contracts and deployers can be a powerful indicator of interest in a project.
As evident, this metric indicates strong engagement.
