Another Monday has arrived and with it, important tidbits of cloud computing news. We’ve got a short slideshow on tap for you to get you up to speed.

Here are a few previews:

  • If you’ve been tracking Broadcom’s intended, $61 billion purchase of VMware, we have an update. The antitrust arm of the European Union has made a significant decision amid its investigation.

  • If you’ve been wondering about Google’s place in the recently revved up AI arms race, wonder no more. The company intends to go toe-to-toe with Microsoft in artificial intelligence (although its investment isn’t quite as large as its rival’s).

  • Also, Google Cloud and Red Hat have some mutual-ish news. If you’re on the developer side and keen on automation, you’ll want to check out the recent announcement.

  • Recall 2021’s record data center M&A numbers? New stats show that 2022 was not far behind, indicating investor faith in the cloud sector. That comes from Synergy Research Group.

  • In additional cloud computing news, find out where Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud all rank now that their fourth-quarter earnings have been released.

  • And, finally, we take a look at cloud storage and how much it’s costing organizations, courtesy of a new Virtana.

See the slideshow above for a quick look at this early-in-the-week roundup of cloud computing news.
