MedOne Partners with BTP and Ridge to Deliver the Benefits of Enterprise Blockchain to Customers
The Combined Offering Provides a Solid Technology Foundation for Multiparty Applications
Fintech Week Tel Aviv, Israel — 21 March 2022 — Leading Israeli datacenter operator MedOne today announced a strategic partnership with UK-based enterprise blockchain startup BTP and cloud service provider Ridge, to bring the benefits of blockchain technology, smart contracts and information security to its enterprise customers.
While MedOne owns and operates robust data center infrastructure and local public cloud, Ridge enables organizations to easily deploy cloud-native applications as part of any multi-cloud or hybrid cloud architecture. The Ridge Kubernetes Service (RKS) is a fully-managed Kubernetes service that runs worldwide, and allows enterprise customers to deploy and scale workloads globally, taking advantage of hundreds of locations on the Ridge Network.
BTP’s Kubernetes-native Sextant platform radically simplifies the deployment and management of distributed ledgers as well as smart contract runtime environments, which allow businesses to focus on capturing business value, rather than worrying about the underlying technology infrastructure.
The combined offering delivers an enterprise-class, robust technology foundation for multiparty innovation, that ultimately enables organizations to interact and transact in an efficient and trustworthy manner.
“We are very proud to enlarge our cloud portfolio, by offering our customers an enterprise blockchain solution,” said Eli Saig, CTO at MedOne. “For example, the Sextant solution creates the opportunity of having immutably secured copies of the most important assets of the enterprise organization, using blockchain technology. That is done above a worldwide managed Kubernetes service, also based in our high-availability data centers.”
“The combination of MedOne’s data center infrastructure and the Ridge Kubernetes Service provides us with a world-class foundation for our management and operations offering Sextant,” said Duncan Johnston-Watt, CEO & Co-Founder of BTP. “Our partnership with MedOne enables us to deliver an enterprise blockchain platform to their customers and tap into new markets in both Israel and worldwide thanks to Ridge Cloud’s global footprint.”
“Blockchain technology is one of the significant applications of modern cloud computing, and we are excited to be part of the team that is using blockchain to generate tangible business value,” said Nir Sheffi, Ridge CTO and Co-Founder. ”At the core of the partnership’s solution is its flexible decentralized cloud that is enabled through Ridge’s global CNCF-certified managed Kubernetes service.”
