We lead off with Oracle’s $9.3 billion acquisition of NetSuite, and then drill into why Verizon paid $4.8 billion for Yahoo. We also get sidetracked with a rant about executive pay.
We also look at A10 Networks’ purchase of Appcito, a cloud-based application delivery company. And in our final acquisition story, we look at Riverbed’s Aternity buy, which extends its performance monitoring capabilities directly to the end host.
Ericsson’s CEO steps down, prompting a discussion of the Cisco/Ericsson partnership, and we compare IBM’s second-quarter cloud revenue to Amazon’s.
And it’s financial reporting season, so we get details on Cavium, Juniper Networks, and Radware.
You can get links to all the stories referenced in this episode, and sponsor details, after the donut.
