Tech layoffs appear to have slowed and, in fact, one cloud company — Snowflake — says it will add employees this year.

It’s with that positive news that we bring you our latest cloud computing news roundup. Even better for busy readers, this is a short one that will take you no time at all to read. But read it you should for the skinny on the Snowflake hiring news, as well as for the tidbits we’ve got on Amazon Web Services and Salesforce.

Given all of the unwelcome tech layoffs that have come over the past few months, Snowflake’s announcement should boost some outlooks. Snowflake also has a new deal with AWS, which we examine briefly. From there, AWS has news of its own. We conclude with a look at Salesforce and why its stock is exploding all of a sudden. (No, the company did not reveal any more tech layoffs, so that’s good.)
