BALTIMORE, MD, April 28, 2015 (Newswire.com) - RackTop Systems, an innovator in on-premises and cloud data management and storage has solidified a partnership with Panthera Technologies, an IT advisory and managed services organization. The partnership enables customers to leverage Panthera’s services in conjunction with RackTop’s products, including a nationwide, multi-tenant private cloud.
With Panthera’s PivotGrid (SM) migration solution, customers will be able to seamlessly and cost-effectively migrate to the latest, most efficient and secure data center technologies. PivotGrid is a comprehensive, end-to-end managed solution that allows companies to securely migrate line-of-business applications from any corporate platform to any data center or hybrid cloud. PivotGrid is powered by RackTop’s highly available and resilient cloud, myRacktop, with private network connectivity and 2N infrastructure redundancy that was designed for the enterprise’s critical business applications.
“Many organizations want to move portions of their IT infrastructure to new, virtualized offerings including ‘as a service’ options, but don’t have the resources necessary to successfully plan or execute the migration,” said RackTop COO, Jonathan Halstuch. “With this new partnership, our customers can benefit from the technology and the expertise through a repeatable, managed process. What’s more, this turnkey solution eliminates unnecessary hardware expenditures and guarantees zero defects, downtime and business disruption.”
In creating PivotGrid, Panthera drew upon its deep IT services experience and best-practice methodologies to ensure that the solution its customers receive is proven, efficient and cost-effective. The team takes a five-step approach to streamline migration and mitigate risk:
With PivotGrid running on myRacktop – a cloud designed from the ground up for the enterprise – every customer will receive the security, predictability, and resilience needed to run an enterprise business without the myriad of problems encountered in today’s larger public clouds.
"It can be difficult to migrate an active application without causing a significant impact on business operations," explained J. Todd Jennings, President and CEO of Panthera. "With PivotGrid powered by myRacktop, we have a secure, multi-tenant private cloud that provides a business-compliant environment during the transition.”
