N4CloudNode4 expands range of Cloud services, with Backup to the Cloud based on CTERA Networks cloud storage enablement platform.

Node4 Backup to the Cloud is a secure way of backing up to your crucial business files using the Internet to securely transfer them from an appliance at your office, or an agent on your computer, to our highly resilient Data Centres. Utilising EMC Corporation’s enterprise class Atmos Cloud storage platform, our team of expert engineers have designed and built a scalable, flexible and resilient multi-site Cloud backup platform which is integrated with the CTERA backup suite to deliver a range of customisable solutions to suit your business needs, both now and as they develop in the future.

If any problems occur which cause data loss within your organisation, you need to know that your backup is protected and that the files you restore will be exact duplicates of those which were lost. We ensure your files are secure all the way from your employees’ individual devices to our storage platform by secure AES 256-bit encryption. Your files are sent over a TLS connection, which is the same level of security used for online transactions. We add an additional level of security using a secure hash algorithm to ‘finger-print’ your data and check that the files received by our Atmos platform are the exact files you sent.

A major concern for businesses is the speed at which solutions can be deployed and the length of time to get back to doing business following a disaster recovery scenario. When setting up your backup schedule, you can use Microsoft Active Directory to install CTERA software on multiple computers and laptops, making it quick and easy for all staff to create a secure backup of their files, whilst also integrating user credentials. Should the worst happen and you need to get your data back fast, tiered recovery can restore just the information you need using the most appropriate restore path meaning you won’t wait any longer than necessary to get back to work.

As a connectivity solutions provider, you can purchase both your Cloud solutions and your network from us and reduce unnecessary time and money spent procuring different solutions from separate suppliers. With interconnects into major UK networks including BT, Vodafone, TalkTalk Business and Virgin Media, our highly resilient core network can be accessed with Broadband, Ethernet, EFM or FTTC technology, so you can have the connection which is exactly suited to your business requirements to secure your most critical data in the Cloud and protect your business against unexpected events.
