If you thought the ‘landmark’ Broadcom-VMware deal would have been tied up by now, well, you’d be mistaken. And it’s not entirely clear when the companies will wrap up their intended $61 billion pairing. As part of this week’s cloud computing news roundup, we take a look at the latest goings-on with the planned Broadcom-VMware transaction.

There’s also a significant development at Alibaba Cloud. Parent company Alibaba, the China-based ecommerce giant, is going through with intended cuts to the cloud computing division. Find out more in the slideshow above.

Next up, prepare for a slew of generative AI news. From Red Hat and Google Cloud to Alteryx, it seems everyone in cloud is all about this fast-growing trend.

Finally, we round out this week’s roundup with a look at two cloud-centric research reports, one from Splunk, the other from CloudBolt Software. Both assess how organizations are managing their environments — or not, to be more accurate. The results point to significant opportunity for cloud channel partners to further guide and help customers.

Let’s start with the latest on Broadcom-VMware, though. Click the image above to start our latest slideshow.
