Introduction

SYMKLOUD is a unique converged platform concept, designed from the ground up for cloud/IT and NFV/SDN cable and carrier cloud infrastructure deployments.

Achieve highly efficient virtualized application workloads for Video/Content Delivery, Big Data/IoT, Mobile/Telco, and Cloud services. 

The Kontron Symkloud MS2910 combines the best characteristics of carrier grade COTS hardware with the flexibility of high density, microserver cloud computing architectures, all in a compact, low-power footprint.

  • Ideal for Bare Metal Hypervisor implementations;
  • Traffic Shaping via integrated 10G redundant, hot-swappable switches
  • Physical separation of Data Plane and Control Plane per Modular Server to enhance performance
  • Elegant web-based System Manager with 1-click updates
  • Flexible configurations with expanding portfolio of Hot-Swappable mix-and-match processor Modular Servers

Hardware Designed for a Software-Defined World

The service providers of the telecom, cable, and enterprise world are converging towards using cloud infrastructure as a means to reduce costs and increase service elasticity and, consequently, revenues. 

Since traditional approaches to networking in a cloud environment have become increasingly complex, the recent movement for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networks (SDN) have become official concepts created by a consortium of service providers to virtualize various network functions (applications). The goal is to achieve greater
service agility and leverage the cost efficiencies of commercial off the shelf (COTS) hardware, virtualization and open source software. Likewise, the idea is to design a network that can be virtualized, and therefore, elastic rather than fixed, and that the components and devices that comprise the typical network, can all be configured as virtual machines
that run more efficiently by processors. 

The design of the SYMKLOUD Platform Series is a significant step in supporting this direction, and is intended to support any number of software-defined and virtualized cloud-based workloads.

The Kontron Symkloud MS2910 combines the best characteristics of carrier grade COTS hardware with the flexibility of high density, microserver cloud computing architectures, all in a compact, low-power footprint.
