In the world of data-centers, companies seem to be either buying or selling out a specific company. Customers are now more demanding and are eager into finding the products which are easier to access while the vendors are also eager into dividing the different niches in the data-center world.

HP bought 3com, Oracle bought Sun, SAP bought Sybase – no company seems to get enough with all these major selling out of companies and buying of companies. And with the prediction that this rhythm will not stop anytime soon, IDG’s expert bloggers pulled out their cards and predicted what mergers might happen in the future.

Alan Shimel, Network World’s Open Source Fact and Fiction blog’s author expects that IBM will buy Amazon Web Services. Amazon’s forerunner, Bezo will have to face the demands of the investors to maximize their returns. On the other hand, IBM wills to be on top in the field of on-demand computing. Amazon’s returns will be maximized and IBM is capable enough to give what the investors demand of the Amazon. Why won’t they help each other then?

Network World’s Microsoft Tech blog author, Robert Mullins foresees that Teradata will be bought by HP. No doubt that this will really happen. With the HP CEO’s, Mark Hurd, vision on taking Teradara in HP’s view, a merger is all it needs to suffice the said plan.

More mergers and selling out will occur aside from the above mentioned as predicted by expert bloggers. Oracle will buy EMC and IBM will buy CA Technologies says David Linthicum, InfoWorld’s Cloud Computing blog author. Cisco Systems will buy McAfee according to Shimel again. And Kim Wei’s, Network World’s Essential Open Source blog author, prediction is that Microsoft will buy Red Hat.

Some of the mentioned mergers are too obvious enough in the info tech world. And others are controversial for their own food. But there’s only one thing that the blogger are expecting of better services and products from the vendors in the future.
