RackTop Systems, provider of high-performance software-defined storage embedded with advanced security, encryption and compliance, and Ethos, provider of unified communications and voice, document and data solutions worldwide, announced on Thursday a new partnership. Under the agreement, Ethos will serve as RackTop’s primary distributor in the United Kingdom (UK), making RackTop’s data management and orchestration solution available to the UK market.
RackTop’s BrickStor product offers an all-in-one data storage and management platform to protect government data from cyberattacks while meeting regulatory compliance requirements. The platform enables companies to easily create shared, distributed storage resources, reducing cost and complexity, optimizing operations and improving security.
In addition, RackTop’s myRack orchestration framework is an easy-to-use platform for enterprises and organizations to manage on-premises and cloud data and storage, forecast future storage utilization, and review compliance through a dynamic flow-based user interface.
The RackTop-Ethos alliance represents an expansion of Ethos’ long history of managing and supporting large digital data stores for the advertising and media sector through their acquired LGS business unit. It’s also a valuable addition to the company’s growing technology services division.
“We are pleased to partner with Ethos to expand into the UK, which we see as a key area of growth, especially at a time when data security and compliance is becoming much more serious,” said Eric Bednash, CEO and co-founder of RackTop Systems. “Our new partnership with Ethos allows UK businesses to solve their most difficult data, compliance and cybersecurity challenges with the comfort of a local trusted resource.”
“This is a very exciting partnership for us and is a key part of our strategic growth plans. It brings considerable innovation and opportunities across the combined business, and allows us to deepen and expand our offering on data security, compliance, workflow and high-performance storage,” said Paul Norris, Ethos founder & group chairman. “It also brings new capabilities to the market to help solve key business issues such as GDPR and MiFID II, which are especially important for our clients in the UK.”
