Perhaps we should apologize up front. Much of this week’s cloud computing news roundup involves — you guessed it — generative AI. We know this topic seems to be hogging all the channel conversation right now. And yet, if it wasn’t a transformative technology, whether that’s the case right now or more what generative AI will become, it wouldn’t be consuming all the attention. So, understanding that the discussion around generative AI is a lot, we still need to bring some news to your screen.

Let’s start with Amazon Web Services. The cloud giant is funneling a lot of money (but not actually as much — in terms of a one-time investment — as one of its partners, also in this roundup) into generative AI. The first two slides take a look at that development.

After that, take a short reprieve from generative AI news with indie vendor Vultr’s “Cloud Alliance” announcement. Then we bring you some outcomes from CloudBolt’s newest report on FinOps, which is vital to any thriving cloud computing practice.

Finally, we conclude this week’s roundup with two more pieces of generative AI news — one from Rackspace, and one from channel partner Accenture and provider Google Cloud.

You can’t have generative AI without the cloud (hey, we didn’t say it — AWS’ Adam Selipsky did. See slide 2.). As such, we predict that we’ll all just keep hearing more about generative AI. Brace yourself and click the image above to get the latest.
