Listen: IBM, Microsoft, Google discussed on Rocket
"But I think from a business standpoint, this is really interesting because as CNBC said, this is kind of it does kind of Rican some ways some people are doing this as a desperate move that IBM is has missed out on kind of the ongoing wave of cloud computing and disclosure, I do work at Microsoft, and I work in Azure group, which is our cloud computing group. But, but I b m kind of like oracle isn't really a major player, they have a cloud of sorts, but it's not really competitive the same way that you you have Amazon number one Microsoft is number two Google is number three. And then way down the line you have like oracle. And and and I guess like Dell EMC maybe has one and an IBM and and things like that. And so IBM is kind of missed this this wave and so a. Bunch of their business now is is kind of consulting is working with enterprise clients who still by their services and a lot of those services in the bean reliance on open source software, namely a containerized solutions things that us. Like, Docker other containers. And then those those containers need to be orchestrated which is using a software called Cooper Netease. Which is also open source, and this is where red hat comes into play. So red hat historically is is one of the biggest contributors to the lenox Colonel. They make right enterprise Lennox. They also oversee bunch of community projects. But last year, they spent two hundred and fifty million dollars and bought something called Koro s and Koro S is basically kind of like a management console of sorts for coober Netease, which in itself is kind of an orchestration thing. And that was a really a bold move. And a lot of people said, oh, wow. You know, it's clear that red hat wants to kind of really take control over the Cooper nutty space and go to other cloud providers, like Google or Microsoft, or or AWS and say or two independent clients and say, hey, if you want to containerize your stuff, we have the software and the tooling that can make that work. That I believe is why I m is paying all this money because they don't really have a public cloud strategy. No all their clients want containerize stuff, and the the the real heart and soul of this isn't even so much the red hot enterprise Lennox which because it's open source. Anybody could compile red hat offer support. But it's it's this kind of future direction and investment in something that they call open shift, and which which is, you know, kind of combined with a with Koro s it's a it's a lot of money. But it's I think it's it's IBM's. Their thought is this is their best bet to try to jump on this very big and big money making trend with future computing. Can you catch up on years of tuna logical innovation with money? Yes. And no sometimes you can.."
