Alibaba Cloud – a subset of Chinese e-commerce behemoth Alibaba – along with Avalanche has built a launchpad for businesses to deploy metaverses on the layer 1 blockchain.

Introducing Cloudverse: Alibaba Cloud’s Metaverse Launchpad

The platform, dubbed “Cloudverse,” is designed to serve as a one-stop, end-to-end solution for businesses to easily customize, launch, and maintain their own metaverse space. This creates new dimensions for engaging customers.

According to the official blog post, Avalanche provides all of the blockchain elements of the new offering, including digital land, wearables, and other digital assets.

Alibaba Cloud will provide scalable, highly efficient, and secure cloud infrastructure offerings, including computing, storage, database, and networking, and intelligence operation platforms. Avalanche will work with a third partner called MUA DAO to provide solutions for building metaverse spaces.

In a statement, Raymond Xiao, Head of International Web3 Solutions at Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, spoke about the strong demand from businesses in the Asia-Pacific region. Xiao said that the demand is due to the rising popularity of blockchain technology and the metaverse. Xiao further added, “Through the launch of the metaverse launchpad on Avalanche for CloudVerse, we are excited to offer businesses a way to kickstart their metaverse journeys and drive innovations and new possibilities for their businesses while elevating customer experiences.”

The partnership between Alibaba Cloud and Avalanche dates back to December 2022, when the two entities announced an integration to power the former’s Node-as-a-Service initiatives. During the same time, the cloud computing division of the Chinese conglomerate began offering infrastructure and tools to help Asia-based users launch validators on the network.

The Web3 Strategy of Alibaba Cloud

As Alibaba Cloud strengthens its footprint in the Web3 space, the company recently unveiled plans to accelerate the growth of a more inclusive and secure modern internet powered by blockchain technology. The company also partnered with a layer one blockchain protocol – Elastos – last month in order to build and deploy next-generation solutions. Additionally, Alibaba Cloud signed a memorandum of understanding with Sui blockchain developer Mysten Labs in January to develop sustainable Web3 ecosystems.
