Amazon's cloud computing arm is looking to make it easier for customers to use blockchain with a new partnership announced Tuesday.

It is the first Blockchain SaaS solution available on the AWS Marketplace and will help them rapidly advance their blockchain projects."
Amazon Web Services is a subsidiary of Amazon that offers a paid subscription for cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and governments. AWS is using a partner-led strategy instead of building from the ground up.
The founder of the Ethereum blockchain platform, which is what Kaleido and AWS will be using, said this is the biggest move yet by the tech giant to get into blockchain.
Blockchain can help Amazon in other arms of the ever-expanding business he said, using supply chain as one example. Lubin said Consensys, which oversees more than 50 blockchain projects, has seen a major increase in interest around the technology.
Amazon joins other tech giants including Microsoft and Facebook exploring use cases for blockchain.
Facebook announced last week it is going through a reorganization that will include a new blockchain effort and aims to address privacy concerns. The experimental blockchain group will be led by David Marcus, the executive most recently in charge of Facebook's Messenger group.
