Kontron has become a corporate sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation. As a result, its Symkloud Series cloud servers will be available with pre-integrated OpenStack solutions, making it a platform to provision a broad set of scalable solutions in cloud environments.

The company is opening up its cloud infrastructure technology. The move is a significant first milestone in the Kontron long-term strategy to design high density, integrated platform for software defined infrastructure (SDI) including systems for the Internet of Things (IoT) where cloud services will be essential.

Kontron has collaborated extensively with partner ISVs to enable them to work with OpenStack as a bare-metal installation of their cloud-aware applications. This includes the cloud provisioning of massively scalable content delivery applications for multiscreen subscriber services for cable TV operators, as well as machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT back-end cloud solutions.

The goal is to make sure cloud providers, along with mobile and cable operators, can maximize the high density design of the Symkloud hardware platform to easily scale their workloads as required, said Benoit Robert, strategy director at the communications business unit of Kontron. Creating multiple on-demand instances with OpenStack on Symkloud and offers customers the flexibility to deploy services in public and private clouds.

"OpenStack ecosystem members like Kontron are key to expanding the global footprint of OpenStack clouds," said Jonathan Bryce, executive director, OpenStack Foundation.
