QCT Ushers Transformation of Enterprise Applications from Virtualization to Containerization Platforms

Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solution provider, is debuting its ecosystem co-developed container platforms and Container Network Functions (CNF) at KubeCon and CloudNativeCon. As containerization has become a major trend in software development as an alternative or companion to virtualization, QCT has recognized the higher server efficiencies and reduced server costs of leveraging this "lightweight" approach. KubeCon and CloudNativeCon is taking place November 18 - 21, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, which gathers adopters and technologists from leading open source and cloud native communities for four days to further the education and advancement of cloud native computing.

QCT will have a media analytics on 5G demonstration featuring facial recognition. In this demo, QCT will show how training data was used to build a trained model with the QCT QuantaGrid D52BV-2U GPU Server, acting as a central office, and then pushing out data to the QCT QuantaGrid SD2H-1U Edge Server, for the facial recognition inferencing. 

As this is the first time for QCT to attend KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America, QCT is introducing its container-based QxStack with Cloud Native Platform and Kubernetes Platform. QxStack with Cloud Native Platform and Kubernetes Platform provides a simpler and lighter platform with Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) from Intel® to boost the performance of the CNF data plane. The infrastructure is deployed through QCT's in-house designed auto deployment tool, which changes the way operators deploy their infrastructure. With this approach, QCT will help drive more flexible and efficient deployment on container-based infrastructures.

"QCT has sensed the development of cloud native technology as well as the market trends in lightweight network environments for some time now," said Mike Yang, President of QCT. "Leveraging our own experiences in designing server platforms and knowledge in workload integration, QCT collaborates with industry leading software vendors and the open source ecosystem, to create innovations."

QCT's infrastructure for 5G enables diverse cloud native applications that require high reliability and low latency. During the conference, QCT will showcase the transformation from 4G LTE toward 5G technology while embracing the move from VM to container. With QCT's ecosystem partners such as Intel, Red Hat, and ASTRI, the company works to integrate, validate, and optimize various network function elements of 5G core networks on container-based platforms, both for open source Kubernetes and commercial versions.
