If you’ve been looking for the latest cloud computing-related news in one place from Amazon, Amazon Web Services, Broadcom, Google Cloud, Akamai, CoreStack and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we’ve got your back.

This week (and, ok, a straggler from last week), each of the companies has made a big splash, with quite a few implications and new capabilities for the indirect sales channel.

Over at Amazon, we look at the executive musical chairs taking place. The company has at last announced its replacement for Dave Limp and, well, the name won’t come as a huge surprise. But we do have the 411 on the change. It’s not entirely cloud computing-centric but there is an AI play that contains a tie.

Then we talk about what Amazon’s biggest money-maker, AWS is doing in generative AI. Many outlets are calling the development an attempt to catch up to its cloud computing rivals.

After that, we look at why Broadcom and Google Cloud are teaming up. If you sell Symantec products, you’ll be interested.

Akamai, in the meantime, continues to build its global presence with the help of its 2022 Linode acquisition. Find out where the cloud computing provider has installed its newest data centers — and in which hard-to-reach regions.

Then, find out what CoreStack, a cloud governance vendor, just released for managed service providers and system integrators. If your cloud computing specialty includes FinOps, SecOps and/or CloudOps, you’ll want to learn more.

Finally, we wrap up with a look at what HPE just did to hone its cloud computing focus.

See the slideshow above for a full week’s worth of cloud computing news.
