Managed IT services provider encapsulates portfolio into one central gateway for easy access and navigation of services, while reducing risk and costs
29 October, 2018 – Derby, UK - Node4, the UK-based cloud, data centre and communications provider, has launched its Services Gateway, through which customers can connect into the Node4 environment and leverage it as a springboard to access other Node4 services to support their digital transformation journeys.
Designed to help customers realise the value of digital transformation, the Services Gateway allows them to take advantage of a wide portfolio of IT infrastructure and solutions. All solutions are underpinned by Node4’s end-to-end infrastructure including tier 3+ data centres, core network, cloud and collaboration platforms. The Services Gateway also allows Node4 customers to benefit from hybrid solutions, supported by a wide range of partners including Office365, AWS and Microsoft Azure to make sure that applications and workloads are on the most efficient infrastructure.
“Node4’s history of owning and running data centres, including our own cloud platform, gives customers the option to either host with us physically or in the cloud. It also gave us the pedigree to then build our own network, on which we can now offer customers a gateway to leverage multiple services across the Node4 portfolio as well as other providers,” explained Paul Bryce, Chief Commercial Officer, Node4. “Our Services Gateway is about supporting our customers in placing their workloads on the right infrastructure, while maintaining control, backups, continuity and security.”
The Services Gateway allows customers to easily transition to a digital environment, without the risk or costs associated with making all legacy equipment redundant in one go. By taking a customer’s legacy hardware and moving it into Node4’s environment, customers can access new services alongside their existing infrastructure.
Node4 can also support customers that want to modernise legacy applications. Bryce elaborated: “Node4 can work with customers, developers and application support teams to review existing applications and see if they are suitable for containerisation. Containerising legacy applications not only allows customers to deploy applications on modern operating systems and infrastructure such as the Node4 Cloud, but it also supports a reduction of on-premise legacy server footprint, by removing the requirement to support old hardware and out of support operating systems.”
Established in 2004, Node4 is an innovative and trusted Managed Services Provider that offers unparalleled end-to-end IT infrastructure and services, technical expertise and innovation, all fully managed and flexibly deployed across the company’s own infrastructure fabric.
Its Services Gateway provides access to a powerful suite of technology solutions such as connectivity, cloud and data centre hosting, public cloud, data services, collaboration and security which enable the design and delivery of complex technology infrastructures for UK businesses in every sector.
