We put some non-standard requests to them, and they go out of their way to help us in any way, shape or form. The relationship we have with Node4 is one of the best ones we have with a third party. The service that we get, the sort of value-add, and the confidence that we get from the Node4 team is exceptional.”

“We were recommended Node4 as a Data Centre solution over 2 years ago. I was introduced into a Senior Account Manager which I must say is still our first point of call today. Our Account Manager walked us around their data centre and it is immediately clear Node4 know how to build an excellent Data Centre, and when you are hosting other people’s data this is a very comforting factor.”

Jonathan C. Crouch, IT Manager
"Not only was our previous IT infrastructure not really up to scratch, we were also hampered by SLAs with our previous IT supplier that weren't strong enough. Maintaining a high service level is crucial to our IT operations, but when there were issues we were getting excuses rather than real support. As a result we were keen to move to a new supplier, but trust was a key issue for us - we needed to work with someone we knew was going to deliver on all of our reliability requirements, to give us a system that was fit for purpose. We had a lot of options when looking for a new IT partner, but meeting Node4 was key. It was clear right from the start that they are an extremely professional team. Straight away we felt that Node4 would be a partner we could rely on to offer honest advice, deliver the best solution for our business and that would respond quickly to deal with any issues directly."
-Darshan Patel, IT Manager
"Moving to a cloud environment has really given us the smoother infrastructure we needed to develop the business. Thanks to Node4 the speed with which we can expand our business has increased rapidly. For us, having an IT partner we could trust to go the extra mile was absolutely critical. With Node4, that is exactly what we were getting. The fact that they were based locally in Derby was also a key point for us. Having the peace of mind that Node4 are just around the corner from us and that we wouldn't be dealing with a call centre somewhere was an important factor in our decision."
-Mark Carpenter, Managing Director
