Broadcom is buying VMware in a $61 billion mega-deal
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/broadcom-buys-vmware-125814712.html

With the impending (or already arrived) recession - are more mergers and acquisitions on the way?

Added later:
I was wondering.. how many VMWare licenses can one get for 65 Bn US Dollars?


Posting under 'general' category: while this can be called industry news, the possibility of more M & A can expand to non-industry

    didnt know broadcom is this rich

    I bench YABS 24/7/365 unless it's a leap year.

  • Broadcom doing what they do best: Buy out other companies and then let them just marinate and ferment.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

    I'm sure this will only bode well for VMware as a product and service provider. Assuming their plan was to fade into obscurity and become a gooey pile of legacy enterprise/mega-corporation bloatware.

    Broadcom has signaled its $61 billion acquisition of VMware will involve a “rapid transition from perpetual licenses to subscriptions.”

    Other than @georgedatacenter who I recall use VMWare, which other providers have VMWare? Have they received any communication?
