Node4 announced today that it has achieved the Cisco® Master Service Provider designation with the introduction of Cisco Powered™ Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Cisco Powered Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
This certification by Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Program (CMSP) recognizes Node4 as having achieved an elite level of expertise to sell and deliver cloud and managed services. To be able to offer these services as Cisco Powered Services, Node4 needed to complete a rigorous third-party audit of its services. This audit verifies that services are delivered with enterprise-class reliability, security and support.
The Master Service Provider designation also recognizes Node4’s investment and commitment to providing DRaaS, DR, IaaS cloud and managed services at Cisco’s highest standards. The shared goal is to help businesses and organizations realize faster time to value.
“Achieving the Master Service Provider designation clearly validates Node4’s commitment to delivering world-class cloud infrastructures and services, alongside industry-leading support and security,” said Andrew Gilbert, CEO, Node4. “Through this accreditation, our customers can be confident they are working with the right partner to help them fulfill the potential of moving to the cloud, with a best practice approach to managing and designing Cisco-based solutions.”
The partnership between Node4 and Cisco extends into the marketplace as well. Cisco will provide numerous financial incentives and go-to-market benefits in all countries of legal presence. Cisco will also actively sell Node4’s cloud services that are Cisco Powered through its own sales channels. In addition, Node4 and Cisco will continue to work together to provide ongoing innovation through these services.
