Can Filecoin stay decentralized?

With IPFS everyone can host data and therefore become a "little amazon server" (in a way). Filecoin creates the incentive for storing the data and thus promotes decentralization, but how does Filecoin prevent big cooperations from centralizing this data storing marketplace? If we imagine a world where everyone uses IPFS and Filecoin is a cornerstone in this technology, what or who prevents e. g. Amazon from becoming a big player in this marketplace and therefore centralizing it with it's huge ressources? Looking forward to an answer :) Cheers.
