Latest addition to storage portfolio caters for criticial workloads that demand performance-guaranteed, flexible, high-IOPS storage

Node4 has recently added a performance-assured storage tier to its storage portfolio. This new tier is aimed at enabling critical customer applications and workloads, and offers guaranteed performance in terms of latency and IOPS. As such, businesses can consider cloud-enabled storage for a wider range of business-critical applications.

As with Node4’s other storage solutions; our new PSTaaS offering is built on industry-leading NetApp technology, (specifically NetApp SolidFire All-Flash Arrays), which is integrated into Node4’s infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service (PaaS) products.

Node4’s PSTaaS can operate up to 100,000 IoP/s, and can be integrated flexibly and easily with other Node4 products, including NetApp Private Storage as a Service (NPSaaS). This allows customers to securely build hybrid solutions, whether applications are configured in Node4 Cloud, the public cloud, or another private cloud. This allows for unparalleled levels of data mobility, data sovereignty, and overall performance.

“Customers buy into Node4 because they appreciate our flexibility, our independence, and our ability to take problems and offer a complete, guaranteed solution,” comments Gregg Mearing, Head of Managed Services, Node4. “We’ve seen an upswing in demand for performance-guaranteed storage recently. Unlike just about anyone else in the market, Node4 can offer PSTaaS alongside a wholly-owned, performance-guaranteed end-to-end network, and alongside the ability to design, build, host and support services on its infrastructure. We remove the complexity of developing solutions and shoulder the responsibility of delivering required performance levels. That will come as welcome news to many IT professionals.”

As well as the standard benefits of flash storage under an OPEX payment model; Node4’s PSTaaS offers encryption-at-rest as standard, compression, de-duplication and thin provisioning, and QoS-assured performance with burst capability. Node4’s PSTaaS is also completely scalable, with performance assured whether you’re using a single server or a complete virtual data centre. Customers do not need purchase dedicated cloud resources to fix performance levels: just agree what performance levels are required.
