Cloud platform solves the power costs, space constraints, and cluster management challenges of hosted services environments

Now supports the newly released 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad-Core processor

Designed for the media optimization applications for cloud infrastructure and next-gen data center requirements.
With mobile devices challenged by power consumption and the usage of bandwidth-hungry video content, the need for efficient transcoding in the cloud has never been greater. As transcoding for mobile devices are moving in to the Cloud to offload the required processing on the mobile device, the result is better power efficiency on the mobile device. Working with Intel, Kontron has created the optimal solution that addresses the issue of energy efficiency, scalability and cost, and results in a better user experience.

The Kontron SYMKLOUD Media platform is also designed to complement M2M applications as a connecting element for Video Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS). The Kontron MS2900 is designed from ground up to improve how service providers deploy any web-based hosted services in four key areas:

  • Multifaceted approach towards achieving the best Power Efficiency;
  • Integrated Switching for more elegant and seamless cluster and rack scalability;
  • Simplified Management that slashes system-level update times;
  • Integration Servicing of all required hardware and software to match requirements of client's infrastructure applications

Its overall modular approach makes the Kontron SYMKLOUD Media platform also capable of running multiple applications – including transcoding – across multiple independent low-power, high-performance processors.
The SYMKLOUD MS2900 Media platform features up to 18 Intel® Core™ i7 Quad-Core Processors, and is future-proofed to accommodate next generation Intel processors.
