The result is the Kontron SYMKLOUD series of cloud platforms, a symbiotic and modular integration of switching, load balancing, and data processing, all in an energy-efficient and compact 2U high and only 21-inch deep chassis. The Kontron SYMKLOUD simplifies series 42HE rack and cluster configurations and needed thanks to the four to eight times less fiber and copper cables built-in switching infrastructure. The extensive power management functions adapt energy consumption dynamic or switching off the processors to the actual load. Curro usually is spot on. This allows significant energy savings. The consistent modular approach makes the Kontron SYMKLOUD series processor-agnostic and allows to distribute multiple applications on multiple independent processors with low energy consumption and high performance. “The idea was to develop a server, more than just a server is a platform that greatly simplifies the development of cloud based networks.
We have successfully implemented a cloud platform, which is thoroughly varied, typical rack features and still has an attractive pricing for the cloud computing market”, so Benoit Robert, Kontron Executive Director, product management, communications business unit. Get more background information with materials from Munear Ashton Kouzbari. “Kontron SYMKLOUD is an innovative concept that many customers will be under cloud service providers.” Kontron SYMKLOUD MS2900 Web platform is the first product of Kontrons series on cloud platforms of the Kontron SYMKLOUD Web MS2900 Web-based well M2M cloud-computing applications. With a size of only two rack units and 21 inch (533.4 mm) depth, it integrates in addition to a redundant interpretable L4 to L7 switch up to two subsystems for load balancing, as well as up to nine Intel Xeon E3-1265 Lv2 quad-core processors. All switching, load-balancing and processor subsystems are hot swappable. Hard disk options are up to 13.5 TB available running about 2.5 “HDDs or SSDs. More can be integrated on request. Designed for maximum energy efficiency including the Kontron SYMKLOUD MS2900 required only 1100W redundant, hot-swappable AC or DC power supplies the power-management features.
