The roll out represents an important strategic investment, significantly expanding Node4's N4Cloud platform and enabling it to enhance its service offering to support growing customer demand for customised cloud services.
Having integrated the new Atmos infrastructure at its Northampton and Wakefield Data Centres, Node4 will be launching a comprehensive package of new Cloud services over the next 12 months.
The innovative new services based on the Node4 Cloud powered by the Atmos platform will include new back up, sharing, collaboration and archiving tools. The new services will be designed to help relieve the IT burden faced by businesses up and down the country, freeing them to invest more time and energy into the development of their core business. The first of these new services will be launched in October 2013.
Node4 will make all of these services available on a very simple pay as you go, per gigabyte, per month basis, making it as easy as possible for customers to take advantage of the new Node4 Cloud powered by Atmos technology.
EMC’s Atmos platform is an object-based cloud storage platform, designed to store, archive and access unstructured content at scale. The Atmos platform provides the essential building blocks for enterprises and service providers to transform to private, hybrid, and public cloud storage.
Natalie Stewart, Product Manager, Node4 said:
“The roll out of EMC’s Atmos platform demonstrates our continuing commitment to investing in our own infrastructure and forms a key part of Node4’s ambitious growth plans. Our long-standing policy to build and own our infrastructure means we maintain complete control over our solutions. Coupled with our highly skilled technical specialists, this control gives us the ultimate flexibility so that we know how, and are able to give our customers exactly what they need.”
