Kontron at GigaOM Structure to talk about cloud efficiencies with partners Vantrix and Sensinode

Kontron workshop takes an inside look at two use cases for achieving a new order of magnitude of efficiency with cloud infrastructure applications

Eching, Germany, June 13, 2013 — Kontron, a global leader of telecom, network and cloud infrastructure platform solutions, announced today that it will hold a workshop with partners Vantrix and Sensinode during the cloud-focused GigaOM Structure conference in San Francisco, June 19 – 20, 2013. While much is discussed about how cloud can save costs for enterprises, the presentation will focus on the remaining challenges to ensure cloud infrastructure is highly efficient with respect to energy consumption, management, workload performance, floor space, and overall IT costs.

Kontron and its partners will delve into two use cases that illustrate how the latest software and hardware technologies for cloud infrastructure are driving down costs and increasing performance densities. Vantrix, which addresses the delivery and optimization of video and other media for service providers, will discuss how to efficiently handle the transcoding of high channel densities of fixed and mobile video streams in the cloud. Sensinode, a leading supplier of end-to-end software solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, features a complementary use case that demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between M2M, the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, and how cloud infrastructure can more efficiently provisioned to serve massively scaled M2M applications for multiple markets.

The GigaOM Structure conference will also have an exhibition area where Kontron will showcase its partners demos and the Kontron SYMKLOUD MS2900 Series designed for both Web and Media cloud infrastructure applications. As a platform concept designed from the ground up for the expandability, energy efficiency and low cost requirements of next-gen data centers and cloud service providers, the SYMKLOUD Media platform uniquely integrates three key infrastructure elements in a 2U footprint – 10GbE switch (Layer 4), plus modular load balancer and server subsystems.
