Microsoft is a member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, and is also made available various blockchain solutions via the Microsoft Cloud (Azure). Microsoft has also released the Coco Framework to ease enterprises into adopting blockchain technology (https://azure.microsoft.com/nb-no/blog/announcing-microsoft-s-coco-framework-for-enterprise-blockchain-networks/)
As for Amazon they are rumoured to be looking into accepting cryptocurrency payments. It’s important to remember that Amazon, Facebook is centralized and as such, blockchain in a decentralized solution with the correct use case would be a competitor to them. I doubt however that they aren’t researching it, or looking into the potential, it is, however, likely that they aren’t announcing it. Several blockchain solutions are hosted on AWS (this, however, is a consumed service by those blockchain solutions and does not necessarily imply any partnership between them and AWS.)
