Take a Network Break! On today’s episode we dig into the official merger of Dell and EMC, and how the company is shedding employees and businesses. Speaking of shedding businesses, we also look at moves by HPE and Intel to spin out software groups while still retaining a stake.
Samsung sells its printer business to HP, Cisco buys a container startup, and UK Internet provider Sky goes all-IPv6. Last but not least, we parse a research report on the growth of cloud workloads.
