Derby, 26th October 2023 – Node4, the cloud-led digital transformation Managed Services Provider (MSP), has made it even easier for channel partners to deploy its N4Backup Veeam® Cloud Connect solution. By partnering with Zadara, Node4 has added multi-tenanted and immutable object storage to its Backup as a Service (BaaS) offering. As a result, Node4’s channel partners can now directly manage more aspects of their offsite backup environments for themselves and their customers. Node4 continues to centrally manage encryption, security, availability and firewall components on their behalf via its own enterprise data centres, secure network infrastructure and 24x7x365 engineer support.
The news follows Node4’s recognition by Veeam Software, the leader in Data Protection and Ransomware Recovery, as a Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) Reseller Ready partner for off-site backup. This status acknowledges Node4’s technical expertise in off-site backup and helps differentiate the company’s portfolio in the market. VCSP Reseller Ready status for off-site backup also opens the door for Node4 to connect directly with VAR partners that are looking to resell their cloud services. This framework led to Node4 partnering with Zadara to add its multi-tenanted immutable and object storage capabilities into N4Backup Veeam Cloud Connect.
“The result is a managed service, but with a very light touch from Node4,” explains Gregg Mearing, CTO, Node4. “Using Zadara’s technology, we can now give our channel partners greater direct control over their offsite backup environments — providing them with more flexibility to manage and price their services as they see fit. N4Backup Veeam Cloud Connect is available to our channel partners at a competitive price and with flexible billing. This means they can go to market with an affordable, high-quality backup solution without investing in and maintaining their own physical IT infrastructure.”
“We are excited to announce that Node4 achieved the reseller-ready competency to add to their VCSP accreditation, bringing a channel-ready self-service portal for Veeam partners to access our industry-leading ransomware, cybersecurity and resiliency solutions, providing Node4’s channel partners and their customers with best-in-class data protection services,” comments Pamela Napier, Senior Manager of Cloud, UKI at Veeam Software.
Node4 is also a long-standing Veeam Gold Partner and previous winner of Best Cloud & Service Provider Partner of the Year in the UK — and, as such, places security at the heart of its N4Backup Veeam Cloud Connect solution. Zadara’s data security and protection credentials were, therefore, a key factor in selecting a partner to deliver multi-tenanted storage. Combined with Node4’s enterprise-grade firewalls, secure data centres and encrypted backups, channel partners can be assured that N4Backup Veeam Cloud Connect continues to meet the strictest data security requirements.
“We are delighted to partner with Node4 and bring high-performing, highly secure Storage Object Storage to support Node4’s new Veeam-based BaaS solution,” says Yoram Novick, CEO, Zadara. “We know that the partnership will further accelerate Node4’s mission to help the UK channel community move to secure managed services that positively impact their customers.”
Node4 empowers its channel partners across the UK to deliver positive outcomes, through technology and innovation. Thanks to a broad portfolio including Cloud, Security, Data, Business Applications, Collaboration, Network and Colocation, Node4 helps partners prepare for the future, stay relevant and meet the demands of an ever-changing end user market.
Node4’s successful Channel programme plays a key role in the organisation’s go-to-market strategy, taking these services and empowering MSPs, VARs, ISVs, SIs and carriers to resell them – and build on their own customer relationships as a result. Thanks to its fully owned network of data centres, points of presence and strategic relationships with market-leading vendors such as Microsoft, Cisco and Veeam, Node4 Channel provides a varied, flexible offering for its partners to offer to their clients.
Key to Node4’s success is its friendly, supportive culture, with Great Place to Work® ranking it as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for three years running (2020, 2021 and 2022).
