IBM Buys HashiCorp! Seismic Industry Shift, or… Meh.

It looks like the rumors were true! Recently, IBM announced that they are buying HashiCorp (and Terraform) for a cool 6.4 billion dollars, in cash.

Tom and Chunga both find themselves asking the question, “Why did IBM choose to do this?” They already own Red Hat and Ansible. Did they buy HashiCorp / Terraform because they could, or did they buy it because the should? Chunga thinks it’s definitely the former. He’s also of the opinion that they made this purchase without having an actual plan. Tom, on the other hand, says it’s not quite as simple and people think, altholugh Chunga may be right on this one. Why? Listen now to find out!
