Managed Public Cloud: Maintain Your Control

AWS, Azure, and other emerging public Cloud providers deliver an increasingly sophisticated and extensive catalogue of packaged platforms and SaaS solutions.

As certified partners of both AWS and Microsoft, we have access to the extensive range of SaaS solutions that they provide such as: Office365 and Azure Active Directory, amongst others, which we can provide to your business on a license basis.

But the real value we add is ensuring that your journey into public Cloud – whether that is just public Cloud or as part of a hybrid solution – is carefully considered, designed, and delivered through our Discovery Framework.

Node4 can deliver consulting services, aggregated billing and public Cloud management services to assist you in making truly cost effective use of the hyperscalers and ensure ‘shadow IT’ costs don’t creep in and run away.

We have direct private connections into both AWS and Azure, and uniquely, we are even able to store your data in our UK data centres, while still presenting it to the hyperscalers, ensuring data protection compliance. See more on our NetApp Private Storage as a Service (NPSaaS) solution.

We have a superior track record of designing innovative and highly efficient public Cloud and hybrid solutions, understanding what roles your servers should play in your IT strategy.
