Kontron announced the SYMKLOUD series of cloud platform solutions, designed from the ground up to transform and simplify how providers of network equipment and cloud services deploy web-based, machine-to-machine (M2M), and mobile applications in cloud infrastructure.
This exciting new introduction fills the innovation gap among a fractured market of commodity and cloud servers that disregard energy consumption, are over-sized in depth, and are too complex to efficiently scale and manage.
"We thought it was time to bring a new idea into the cloud computing space," said Robert Courteau, Kontron General Manager, Americas. "Among all the players selling public, private or hybrid hosted services, the requirements for cloud infrastructure are constantly changing. Between commodity and carrier grade servers, there is a new middle ground that cloud service providers covet but is not being addressed. We strongly believe Kontron SYMKLOUD is a major step in the right direction."
As an agile new entrant into the cloud computing space, Kontron drew inspiration from its extensive carrier grade and network server platform design experience to conceive of an entirely new concept dedicated to the real-world requirements next-generation data centers, the firm said.
The result is the Kontron SYMKLOUD series of cloud platforms, a symbiotic and modular integration of switching, load balancing and processing, all into a low power and compact 2U, 21-inch deep design that supports five-nines High Availability.
