With the Kontron SYMKLOUD Series of application-ready cloud platform solutions are designed from the ground up to transform and simplify how network equipment providers and cloud service providers deploy web-based, machine-to-machine (M2M), and mobile applications in cloud infrastructure. The Kontron SYMKLOUD platform is a symbiotic and modular integration of switching, load balancing and processing, all into a superbly low power and compact 2U, 21-inch deep design.
With mobile devices challenged by power consumption and the usage of bandwidth-hungry video content, the need for efficient transcoding in the cloud has never been greater. As transcoding for mobile devices are moving in to the Cloud to offload the required processing on the mobile device, the result is better power efficiency on the mobile device. Working with Intel, Kontron has created the optimal solution that addresses the issue of energy efficiency, scalability and cost, and results in a better user experience.
The Kontron MS2900 is designed from ground up to improve how service providers deploy any web-based hosted services in four key areas :
Multifaceted approach towards achieving the best Power Efficiency
Integrated Switching and Load Balancing for more elegant and seamless Cluster and Rack Scalability
Simplified Management that slashes system-level update times
Integration Servicing of all required hardware and software to match requirements of client's infrastructure applications
The first in the series is the Kontron SYMKLOUD MS2900 Web platform ideal for web-based applications in cloud computing environments. Only 2U in height and 21 inches (533.4mm) deep, the MS2900 Web has integrated single or redundant L4 to L7 switching, up to 2 load balancer subsystems, and up to nine independent Intel® Xeon E3-1265 Lv2 Quad-Core processors. All switch, load balance, and processor subsystems are hot-swappable. Storage options include up to 13.5 TB (more upon request) of HDD or SSD 2.5" drives. The MS2900 Web platform adds even more energy efficiency by only requiring 1100W dual redundant AC or DC hot-swap, power supplies.
Designed from the ground up to integrate switching, load balancing and processing in a 3-in-1 modular approach
Power efficiency for significant OPEX savings
Simplified 1-click updates
Seamless cluster and rack scalability
Designed for cloud service providers and next-generation data centers
