The long holiday weekend is almost here but before you bug out of the office for four days, let’s catch you up on some under-the-radar cloud computing news, starting with the former VMware EUC division.

We have an update on Omnissa, which was VMware End User Computing until KKR bought it, and its channel partner strategy. Any MSP, VAR, integrator or other partner offering the company’s remote desktop platforms will want to check out what Omissa told us about its approach to partners.

After that, stay tuned for Gartner’s take on industry ripple effects stemming from VMware by Broadcom's licensing changes. While the Omnissa news relates to virtualization, Gartner’s talking “devirtualization” thanks to Broadcom.

Then, find out who Kyndryl has just named to run its information office, the applications, data and AI group, and its cloud computing practice.

From there, we fill you in on Nutanix’s new report focused on the financial services and insurance sector’s demand for cloud computing. If you target these markets, you’re in for good news. Plus, Amazon Web Services just made an important update to its funding around Migration Acceleration Program, which partners consume.

Finally, round out this week’s cloud computing update with a look at the latest in the U.K.’s ongoing investigation into the hyperscalers and significant changes coming out of Alibaba Cloud.
