Node4, Cloud, Data Centre and communications specialist, has become a Gold Cloud Provider of Veeam Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Centre. The partnership is Node4’s latest initiative and part of a long-term strategic commitment to ensuring its Cloud customers benefit from the very latest in cutting edge availability solutions.
Node4’s Cloud customers will enjoy access to a self-service portal, from where anyone can rapidly restore data from backups.
Mark Wilson, Cloud Architect, Node4, commented: “Our customers were telling us that high-speed recovery of data was placing an increasing burden on their IT teams and the traditional support process was causing delays that modern businesses, which require access to their data 24/7, cannot tolerate. As a result of our investment in Veeam, our customers can empower their teams to recover files and virtual machines faster, whilst maintaining control of the backup process itself.”
Crucially, the combination of Node4’s investment in Veeam Software and in NetApp storage allows a significant part of the backup process to utilise storage snapshots, reducing load on production infrastructure and avoiding limitations of a traditional backup window.
Taken in conjunction with other recent investments, Node4 is now able to offer a comprehensive suite of data availability technologies to its customers. This covers any type of data, from cloud and on-premise, to colocation equipment, through to cloud applications such as Office365.
“With today’s businesses demanding an Always-on service and turning to the Cloud for greater flexibility, our Data Centre availability solutions, combined with Node4’s and Veeam expertise, offer the market the best of hosting products and services, coupled with the reference solution for the protection of virtual environments,” commented Laurent Garcia, Senior Hosting & Cloud Manager EMEA, Veeam Software. “The integration of Veeam Availability Suite with Node4’s Cloud services will allow us to address a common target in search of efficient, secure and agile services.
