Kontron partners with Canonical to enable universal OpenStack-based virtualized services

Kontron announced the launch of a commercially available SYMKLOUD OpenStack Platform. In collaboration with Canonical, Kontron exercised a complete validation of Ubuntu OpenStack on SYMKLOUD hardware, and will fully support and manage the platform's life cycle in alignment with each new open source software release, starting with Mitaka.

This represents a major commitment by Kontron to radically simplify the evaluating, buying and deploying of production-grade OpenStack platforms. For communication service providers, cloud and hosting providers, and enterprises who build private clouds, this fulfills many market expectations of an integrated OpenStack platform that is - deployable in hours not days, priced at a reasonable entry point, and is maintained as a truly open source platform without vendor lock-in.

The entire solution is pre-validated and Canonical-approved using the SYMKLOUD MS29xx Series of converged infrastructure platforms. This high-density and modular platform reduces the typical space required to provision OpenStack controllers - from a total of 9U, down to a single 2U footprint that still incorporates redundant configurations of Ubuntu plus selected Canonical tools such as Juju, MAAS, and Landscape.
