Red Hat is already offered on AWS.

aws.amazon.com

What is the breakup fee? Amazon usually would make an offer to at least drive the price up or get the target.

They might stand aside, but Alphabet or Microsoft could also offer more than the first bid.

I don't see who else is a big user or wants to be transformative. There should be a go shop period before knowing this deal is a knock out offer.

edit
The acquisition, which has been approved by the boards of both IBM and Red Hat, is expected to close in the latter half of 2019.
