IBM has announced that it is purchasing Red Hat for $34 billion in "the most significant tech acquisition of 2018." Both IBM and Red Hat are major contributors to open source software. The deal will also have huge implications for the cloud computing landscape, as IBM CEO Ginni Rometty noted, saying "The acquisition of Red Hat is a game-changer. It changes everything about the cloud market."

IBM Cloud reported revenue of $19 billion in the most recent quarter.
