ECHING, Germany -- Today Kontron announced that it has become a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation. As a result, the Kontron SYMKLOUD Series will be available with pre-integrated OpenStack solutions, making it an ideal platform to provision a broad set of scalable solutions in cloud environments. Likewise, this move is a significant first milestone in the Kontron long-term strategy to design high density, integrated platform solutions for software defined infrastructure (SDI).

Kontron has already 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 and machine-to-machine (m2m) or Internet of Things (IoT) backend cloud solutions.

“Our goal is to make sure cloud providers, along with mobile and cable operators, can maximize the high density design of the Symkloud platform to easily scale their workloads as required,” said Benoit Robert, Strategy Director at Kontron, Communications Business Unit. “Creating multiple on-demand instances with OpenStack is truly seamless on Symkloud and offers customers the incredible flexibility to deploy services in public and private clouds.”

“We are pleased to see Kontron helping telcos and cloud service providers leverage OpenStack to meet their unique business and technical requirements,” said Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director, OpenStack Foundation. “OpenStack ecosystem members like Kontron are key to expanding the global footprint of OpenStack clouds."

Live demos using OpenStack will be presented at Kontron stand 5H19, Hall 5, during Mobile World Congress, February 24 – 27, 2014.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
