New and Noteworthy:
Google buys CloudSimple – Google recently announced that they have completed their acquisition of CloudSimple, the leading VMware MaaS (Metal-as-a-Service) provider in Azure and Google’s Cloud Platform. “We believe in a multi-cloud world and will continue to provide choice for our customers to use the best technology in their journey to the cloud,” Rich Sanzi, a vice president of engineering at Google, wrote in a blog post on Monday.
