As the week comes to a close, you’ll find all the cloud computing news you might have missed right here.

Let’s start with the 500-pound gorilla, which is the largest public cloud computing provider talking up huge investments in the world’s most populous country. That’s right — Amazon Web Services is putting a lot of focus on India right now. Find out what that means for the people who live and work there.

Then we’ll move west a ways and assess what’s going on with the somewhat beleaguered BroadcomVMware deal. While the $61 billion transaction has received blessings in other parts of the world, European regulators aren’t quite so keen on it, largely because of their feared implications for its impact on cloud computing on the continent.

From there we’ll shift gears back toward the east and talk about what’s happening with Alibaba Cloud. The company is making a significant decision about its cloud computing business. And it’s talking up new initiatives for channel partners.

Cloud Computing: IaaS Revenue

After that, check out some fresh – though not entirely shocking – data on infrastructure-as-a-service revenue. We say “not entirely shocking” because if you’ve been tracking cloud earnings, the new analysis will come of interest but no great surprise.

Next, Kyndryl and SAP shared a big announcement at this week’s SAP Sapphire event.

But speaking of (potential) surprises, and switching back to Europe, Microsoft Azure has come up antitrust scrutiny. The second-largest public cloud computing vendor is facing some questions from regulators.

Finally, as generative AI consumes the cloud computing sector, we share some thoughts from Google Cloud’s Bronwyn Hastings.
