PancakeSwap (CAKE), a decentralized trading platform, has partnered with Google Cloud to ensure the availability and reliability of its infrastructure.
As the demand for decentralized finance (DeFi) grows, PancakeSwap aims to offer users a user-friendly platform to trade their assets without intermediaries.
PancakeSwap And Google Cloud Collaboration
Moreover, PancakeSwap leverages Google Kubernetes Engine to scale its nodes quickly and accurately predict traffic spikes with the help of the PreditKube solution from Dysnix.
Dysnix’s PreditKube solution helped PancakeSwap accurately predict traffic spikes and automate the up-and-down scaling of blockchain nodes ahead of time to manage the anticipated traffic surge. This approach ensured that PancakeSwap’s infrastructure could handle a fluctuating number of requests with high scalability, maintaining an uptime of 99.99%.
Dysnix says their PreditKube solution accurately predicts more than 90% of traffic spikes on PancakeSwap. By automating the up-and-down scaling of nodes, PancakeSwap managed the anticipated traffic surge and reduced its infrastructure costs by more than 30%.
One of the critical challenges for any trading platform is ensuring the security of smart contracts. PancakeSwap works with various audit firms to identify potential loopholes and leverages Cloud Armor to filter sensitive data.
With its smart contracts secured, PancakeSwap aims to expand its services by adding more chains and exploring non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Moreover, to improve users’ trading experience, PancakeSwap plans to leverage BigQuery to manage and analyze historical blockchain data. By simplifying complex data, PancakeSwap aims to make blockchain trading accessible to everyone.
With Google Cloud’s fully managed services, PancakeSwap’s engineers can focus on developing new features and improving the user experience rather than dealing with infrastructure issues. Chef Jojo, Technical Lead at PancakeSwap, stated:
At one point, we had more than one billion requests on the BNB Chain, but this is changing all the time due to the BNB network changes, among other variables. With Google Kubernetes Engine, we can quickly scale up when there are many requests.
