Ericsson prepares something big

Ericsson (www.ericsson.com | NASD:ERIC), the telco and network equipment giant, have made some interesting recent moves and i am not sure everyone really connects the dots here. Here are a few public facts:

- Fabrix Systems was acquired in Sept. 2014 for less than 100M$ to participate to the Cloud Video transformation. Fabrix was niche vendor but highly recognized and respected in their domain for the excellent software stack they built especially for DVR service.

- Guardtime strategic partnership agreement announced in Sept. 2014 for Keyless Signature Infrastructure integration within Ericsson cloud offering.

- Cleversafe global partnership agreement announced March 2015 for the Ericsson Secure Cloud Storage.

- Announcement of HDS 8000 (Hyperscale Datacenter System).

But one element not mentioned here is the recruitment in March 2014 of a visionary and pioneer, Jason Hoffman, co-founder and CTO of Joyent, who injected the need new blood. This was a fundamental recruitment that fuels a new dimension within Ericsson. Ericsson started a journey to Cloud and it will be big, just read Ericsson's cloud page...
