Accelerate your digital transformation journey to Azure by combining the latest in hybrid technologies with an Azure Expert MSP partner.
Node4’s Managed Azure Hybrid Cloud is a market leading service that allows organisations to run workloads in Azure and in data centres under one integrated set of Azure native tools, services and benefits.
Designed with Microsoft and Intel, and starting at £5000 per month for a three-node Azure Stack HCI cluster, the service enables organisations to drive better transformation outcomes by using the latest hybrid technologies, whilst removing the complexity, cost, and management overhead of running an Azure hybrid platform.
Organisations manage considerable complexity and legacy in IT environments that simply don’t suit a 100% public cloud model for cost, technical or regulatory reasons. This means the default model often becomes a blended, hybrid approach mixing Azure and in-data centre IT infrastructure.
Migrating data centre workloads onto the Azure Hybrid Cloud Service delivers the powerful benefits of Azure run from a dedicated, high-performance cluster.
Secure data centre workloads
Take advantage of Azure benefits such as free security updates for EoL Windows and SQL Servers and Azure Hybrid Benefit for VM’s running in the hybrid platform.
Enhanced resiliency and continuity
Gain operator diversity for your Azure workloads by building a dedicated Azure region in a Node4 managed data centre to protect against Azure outages and enhance business continuity plans.
Transformation of performance sensitive workloads
The underlying Azure Stack HCI cluster has been designed for the most demanding database workloads. Running the latest intel processors and optional NVMe caching tiers, the all-flash clusters ensure a lower risk migration path.
Supercharged scalability on-demand
Upfront investment in HCI infrastructure means customers can be scaled without suffering long hardware lead times. Our Hot Node Scaling provides the agility and adaptability of a cloud service, delivering capacity on-demand.
Modernised apps and data centres
Migrate systems or modernise existing apps for cloud using the latest Azure technologies, increasing lifespan, performance and security. Including PaaS services such as AKS, App Service & Azure SQL.
Managed Azure Hybrid Cloud overcomes compliance, latency, and legacy technology challenges for businesses who want to progress digital transformation, scale at ease and achieve hybrid maturity, while retaining control of hardware or running legacy systems.
