Affordable, flexible, reliable storage which can easily grow with you

Our storage as a service is tiered for any capacity or speed. Each tier (0-3) offers scalability and agility but at different levels of speed and capacity based on your needs. This can be purchased alongside compute and network to offer a full tailor made IT solution.

From ultrafast Tier 0 with absolute guaranteed performance to Tier 3: reliable, effective and very affordable storage for business functions where speed isn’t so much of a priority, we can match any requirement.

Tier 1-3 is built on NetApp FAS – the flexible, scalable backbone of the market leading NetApp offering. Tier 0 is the ultrafast, high performance solution built on NetApp SolidFire. A mixture of tiers can be used to provide the perfect end-to-end solution.

All of the great benefits of hyperscalers with peace of mind your data is stored in our UK data centres

Benefit from the immense positives of using hyperscalers like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure with their scalability, flexibility and affordability but with none of the negatives which are a common deterrent. Retain control of your important data, storing it securely in our data centres with NetApp while you use hyperscalers as an affordable way to manage bursts of activity or research, testing and development.

NetApp is the only storage provider to be able to work with Amazon Web Services and Node4 is the only UK provider of this solution in the UK.

This solution is the best of both worlds. To purchase this directly requires significant investment. Node4 has already made the investment so you don’t have to.


  • Data sovereignty:  many businesses need to know where their data is, and that it is accessible. It needs to be in the UK. NPSaaS allows you to retain absolute control of data but with the flexibility of using AWS and others. It meets general data protection regulation
  • Eliminate costly and lock-in data migrations. You can avoid potentially expensive costs when trying to get your data back when switching cloud providers
  • It allows you to cheaply and securely test and develop new innovations
  • It allows for bursts of activity best supported by AWS/Azure but with no loss of control of data
  • Quick and easy multi cloud access – have the flexibility of switching clouds to accommodate your workloads at any time. One cloud doesn’t need to meet all your requirements. This allows you to diversify risk between clouds
  • Move your data at any time – transferring it between NetApp based infrastructures, including private, hybrid and public clouds when needed
  • Back up data securely and efficiently
