Cloud computing news isn’t in short supply this week, but it has slowed down somewhat. Maybe it’s because the flood of layoffs has tapered off? With a little more breathing room in play, we are taking the time to examine some tidbits that also deserve attention, starting with an update on the pending Broadcom-VMware merger. We then move on to managed service provider M&A — find out who MSP 501er DoIT International just bought and why.

After that, we look at some cloud statistics. Synergy Research Group has new numbers that show Microsoft Azure gaining ground on behemoth Amazon Web Services. And Salesforce has new data on, well, data, and what businesses are failing to do with it.

Finally, Oracle Cloud, via 451 Research, is making bold (that’s not to say inaccurate!) statements about the future of cloud computing. Hint: It’s all about mixing environments.
