Node4 launches ServicesGateway which is designed to help customers realise the value of digital transformation, by allowing them to take advantage of new services, while reducing risk and costs.

Through the new ServicesGateway, customers can connect to the Node4 environment through Node4’s UK network and then use it as a springboard to access other services from Node4; as well as third party providers, public cloud, SaaS and a host of other applications and software to support their digital transformation journey’s.

The new solution allows customers to easily transition to a digital environment, without the risk or costs associated with a big move and making all legacy equipment redundant in one go. By taking a customer’s legacy hardware and moving it into a Node4 rack, customers can access new services alongside their existing infrastructure.

Commenting on the launch Steve Denby, Head of Solution Sales, Node4 said: “Today, everything is connected and our lives revolve around services, data and applications. In the world of Cloud Services and Hosting, unfortunately one solution doesn’t fit all workloads; and therefore, Hybrid Cloud has now fast become the leading go-to infrastructure design. Node4’s history of owning and running datacentres gave us a great pedigree to build our own network and from there offer customers a gateway, to take advantage of multiple services from Node4 and other providers.  Our Service Gateway offering is about supporting our customers in placing their workloads on the right services while maintaining control, backups, continuity and security.”

Node4 can also support customers to modernise their legacy applications.

Speaking about the service, Steve Denby added: Node4 can work with customers, developers and application support teams to review your existing applications and see if they are suitable for containerisation. Containerising your legacy applications not only allows you to deploy your applications on modern operating systems and infrastructure such as the Node4 Cloud, but it also lets you reduce your on-premise legacy server footprint, by removing the requirement to support old hardware and out of support operating systems.”
