66 / 100

On The Cloud Pod this week, the team discusses the new Madrid region’s midday siesta shutdown. Plus: Broadcom acquires VMWare for $61 billion, Azure gets paradigmatic with 5G, and you can now take the 2022 Google-DORA DevOps survey.

A big thanks to this week’s sponsor, Foghorn Consulting, which provides full-stack cloud solutions with a focus on strategy, planning and execution for enterprises seeking to take advantage of the transformative capabilities of AWS, Google Cloud and Azure.

This week’s highlights

  • 🚨 Broadcom acquires VMWare for $61 billion, in one of the largest-ever acquisitions.
  • 🚨 Google Cloud and DORA team up to bring us the 2022 Accelerate State of DevOps Survey.
  • 🚨 Azure calls 5G a “paradigm,” but is it just hype?

Top Quotes  

  • 💡 “This is an interesting reverse on the large cloud providers getting into the silicon business, which makes sense to me — that they want to control their supply chain and optimize. … Is Broadcom going to start becoming like a cloud provider? That’s interesting. I wouldn’t suspect that.”
  • 💡 “What [is Azure] trying to do? Are they trying to sell us on [5G]? Are they trying to change the way we develop? Because we’re just going to waste our time developing stuff that requires some of these things, and then the infrastructure is not going to be there to support it.”
