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.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
