Node4 has a triumphant evening with wins at the DCS Awards & NetApp Partner Awards

We are delighted to share Node4’s success at the 2023 DCS Awards and UK&I NetApp Awards as the team took away two awards in one night!

At the DCS Awards in London, Node4 won the award for best Managed Services / Colocation Project of the Year with its customer, ArrowXL, whilst across the city, at the NetApp UK&I Partner Awards, we took away the prize for Gold Solution Partner of the Year.

The DCS Awards is an annual celebration designed to recognise data centre industry innovation. This year, there were 32 categories to showcase the data centre industry’s impressive achievements, customer success stories, technology innovation and both individual and company contributions to the sector.

This is the second year in a row that Node4 has been recognised for its managed service projects, winning in 2022 with First Response Finance. Entering and attending with ArrowXL this year, Node4’s work with the home delivery and warehousing experts proved worthy of further success. The project consisted of implementing a Security Operations Centre (SOC) managed service and installing a Secure SD-WAN and renewed structured cabling, which has transformed ArrowXL’s operations and saved thousands of pounds.

Up against some stiff competition, Node4 and ArrowXL were shortlisted by the awards body back in March. The final decision was put in the hands of the Digitalisation World publications’ readership with the public vote determining Node4 and ArrowXL as the winner.   


In attendance at the awards ceremony on Thursday 25th May, Mark Nugent, Head of Core IT Services at ArrowXL, shares his delight with the win: “It’s an honour to win the Managed Services / Colocation Project of the Year category with Node4. Node4 is so much more than a service provider for us – they are an extension of our team – so to spend tonight with them, and to win an award for our work together, is really special.”

“As ArrowXL continues to evolve, Node4 will continue to play a crucial role in our growth and we are excited for what’s to come,” adds Steve Murphy, IT Service Delivery Manager at ArrowXL. “We look forward to strengthening our partnership over the coming months and years.”

“We had a great night at the DCS Awards with ArrowXL and it was made even more special by taking home the win,” celebrates Joanne Jones, Senior Account Manager at Node4. “It was the perfect opportunity to celebrate our work and partnership and we look forward to achieving even more together in the future!”


The evening’s success did not stop there – over at NetApp’s UK & Ireland Partner awards, we were delighted to be named Gold Partner of the Year, a prestigious honour in a very competitive category.

“It’s a great achievement to be named Gold Partner of the Year, especially given the talent and expertise of the other organisations in this year’s category,” commented Ciaran Ball, Node4 Group Partner Manager. “It recognises what we’ve already achieved, which is always encouraging, whilst also giving us the impetus to strive for more.”

With two awards under our belts for 2023 already, Node4 will continue to work closely with our clients and partners to grow, innovate and make a difference. Here’s to sharing many more achievements in 2023 and beyond.
