That Was Quick: IBM SoftLayer Acquisition Closes


Well, I said the deal would close at the end of Q3.  Nope. Wrong.  Right at the beginning of Q3.

IBM Closes Acquisition of SoftLayer Technologies



An "A" for drive to close the deal quickly.


Getting it done one full quarter ahead means we might see some big announcements right around the beginning of the year but given the almost immediate closing of the deal we might see something sooner.  I've been on the lookout for changes to our SoftLayer services but not a lot since the deal had not been closed.

Now that the deal is closed I'll be watching a little more closely for changes.

I'll keep you updated.
