IBM buys Redhat
So its been announced that IBM are buying Redhat for a mere $34 billion dollar stock deal. It is buying all the common shares for $190 each.
As long as it gets all the regulatory approvals this will go through in late 2019.
As a heavy Redhat user and have been for years, I am not looking forward to this. Working with IBM as well for many years I can only think instantly all the support costs are going to rise, also I will be interested in what they will do for things like Ansible moving forward, I suppose time will tell.
I am always interested in your thoughts so if you have any comments or feedback then please feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me here.
