Barron's had reported on Qualcomm's announcing its data center effort in its latest analyst call.
And the rest of the tech media referenced this post and one image. Turns out there are 4 slides from the investor meeting. Let's start with one way far at the end slide #76 that shows where data centers are in other initiatives at Qualcomm for future growth.
As Dileep Bhandarkar presented in August 2014 on his life from Mainframe to Mobile, there is a movement from below to disrupt the data center industry.
Here is another slide from the investor review that shows Qualcomm's plan to come from its strength of high volume smartphones and move into mobile computing and data centers.
In this slide Qualcomm identifies the markets it sees for ARM - The cloud era and software defined data center.
And the last slide. Well this isn't actually the last slide. It is the 2nd slide in the deck that mentions "data center", but so many times I find the order in what gets presented misses the opportunity to tell the story.
This slide explains the vision of an integrated cloud. It does make sense that an ARM mobile environment could support the development of an ARM server cloud environment.
There are some of you who are going to blow this off as just another anti-Intel (x86) initiative.
Here is something to think about. What Qualcomm is explaining as the integrated cloud is being built by Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Samsung.
