High performance access to file storage

Bytes Technology Group, the Epsom, Surrey corporate reseller, has been bought by South African IT company USKO Ltd. Terms were undisclosed. BTG said its new parent company would fund the company's drive for growth. "For our customers it means increased credibility, enhanced resources and access to a far wider skills base", the company said in a statement. The entire management team has signed three year contracts, while all staff become stakeholders in a "growing business". BTG focuses on networking solutions based on the Microsoft platform. It lists storage management and thin client technologies as particular strengths. UKSO is one of a clutch of South African IT companies entering the European scene in recent months. Founded in 1911, the company's roots lie in manufacturing. But in the last 12 months it has built a IT division throught the acquisition of "top South African IT companies and IT solution providers".®
