Now, however, e-commerce giant Amazon's arm has tied up with Kaleido, which was born out of Lubin's incubator ConsenSys, for a blockchain partnership.

"Companies are eager to capture the potential of blockchain but to date have struggled to move experimental projects forward into live production networks", ConsenSys explained in their announcement release.

Despite AWS's previous involvement within the blockchain technology space, their partnership with Consensys is a big deal.

"We will give them an easy to use platform to further build their firm on Blockchain".

Amazon and ConsenSys said the Kaleido Blockchain Business Cloud is an "all-in-one blockchain platform aimed at speeding and simplifying enterprise use of the technology".

The diverse nature of the "2018 APN Excellence Awards" winners reflected the opportunity provided for partners who helped customers remove the friction of managing IT infrastructure and set the platform for innovation, said Amitabh Jacob, Head of India Channels and Alliances at AISPL.
