  • British chip technology firm, Arm Ltd, which NVIDIA Corporation is acquiring (NASDAQ: NVDA) in a $40 billion deal, elaborated on its next generation of data center technology, citing Oracle Corp (NYSE: ORCL) and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA) as customers, Reuters reports.

  • Marvell Technology Inc (NASDAQ: MRVL) was making a chip using Arm’s new technology. Oracle will use Ampere Computing produced Arm-based chips for its cloud computing business. Alibaba was set to offer Arm-based cloud computing services via an unnamed chip vendor.
