1.5. Who uses Erlang?
The largest user of Erlang is (surprise!) Ericsson. Ericsson use it to
write software used in telecommunications systems. Many (dozens)
projects have used it, a particularly large one is the extremely
scaleable AXD301 ATM switch. AXD301 has several hundred people working
on it and the code volume has reached about 850 kloc of Erlang (and 1
Mloc of C/C++).
Some of the other companies using Erlang are Bluetail/Alteon/Nortel
(distributed, fault tolerant email system, SSL accelerator), Telia (a
telecomms operator), the Eddie robust webserver and T-Mobile
(previously one2one) (advanced call control services) and Corelatus
(SS7 signalling black box).
1.6. Can I get commercial support for Erlang?
Ericsson sells commercial Erlang support (tested binaries, help with
porting, printed manuals, somewhere to turn to when a problem crops
up, training courses, consulting). The support mail address for
paid-up users is Remember to put your
licence ID in the subject line.
There are also quite a few consulting companies. They can provide more
direct support. Some of them are based in Sweden (e.g. Sjöland &
Thysellus, ENEA Data) and others take jobs and run courses worldwide
I have no direct experience with any of these---Corelatus uses Erlang
in a real product, but we haven't used consultants.
