MONTREAL -- Kontron today announced the SYMKLOUD series of cloud platform solutions, designed from the ground up to transform and simplify how providers of network equipment and cloud services deploy web-based, machine-to-machine (M2M), and mobile applications in cloud infrastructure. This exciting new introduction fills the innovation gap among a fractured market of commodity and cloud servers that disregard energy consumption, are over-sized in depth, and are too complex to efficiently scale and manage.
"We thought it was time to bring a new idea into the cloud computing space," said Robert Courteau, Kontron General Manager, Americas. "Among all the players selling public, private or hybrid hosted services, the requirements for cloud infrastructure are constantly changing. Between commodity and carrier grade servers, there is a new middle ground that cloud service providers covet but is not being addressed. We strongly believe Kontron SYMKLOUD is a major step in the right direction."
Rob Bamforth, Principal Analyst of Business Communications at Quocirca Ltd and reference for SYMKLOUD, said: "For Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), the efficient delivery of subscription-based applications and services is becoming a key focus as it is starting to affect their end-user reputations. Without the right infrastructure and systems, operators will end up with unfulfilled tariff promises, making their charges unjustified. MNOs need to invest in the type of platforms that not only deliver a wide range of bandwidth hungry applications to their end-users, but also allow for cloud-based services to support M2M and Internet of all things communications to ensure they can scale and be managed effectively."
