Also, on December 6, 2017 the Amazon Web Services told about it partnership with R3 DLT consortium. It allows AWS’s Corda platform to be the first Blockchain solution on AWS. Corda is created in such a way that clients can use DApps on the AWS platform to create new applications directly.

The AWS began exposing IT infrastructure services in 2006, in the form of web services– also known as clouding computing. It is a fast-developing sector of Amazon’s business. It sales increased by 50% in 2016 and by 43% in 2017.
