On this week’s Structure Show we talk winners and losers.

One winner? MemSQL raked in a robust $35 million in new cash, bringing total funding to  $45 million in its two year existence.

A loser? IBM announced another disappointing quarter and acknowledged what we already knew —  server sales are sad, although as of now Big Blue still owns its X86 server business, but stay tuned. (Update: Spoke too soon. Mere hours after recording this, IBM announced the sale of its server business to Lenovo for $2.3 billion in stock-and-cash.)

Another winner? Airwatch. VMware acquired the Atlanta-based company for a cool $1.5 billion for its mobile device management know how.
