Node4 achieves Master Designation worldwide to sell and deliver UC as a Service

Node4 has achieved the Cisco® Master Service Provider (CMSP) designation for a new category; the Cisco Powered UC as a Service based on HCS (HCS).

Node4 has also successfully met all criteria required to renew the Master Service Provider designation for Cisco Powered Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Cisco Powered Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Node4 will continue to be identified as a Cloud and Managed Services Master Partner in the Cisco Partner Locator.

The CMSP is a comprehensive framework that recognises, helps to enable, and rewards partners who offer cloud, managed, or virtual managed services based on Cisco technologies.

CMSP accredited providers must meet various Cisco requirements to prove that they have the ability to develop, deliver, manage, and support Cisco-based cloud and managed service solutions.

This certification by CMSP recognises that Node4 has achieved an elite level of expertise to sell and deliver cloud based and managed services. To be able to offer these services as Cisco Powered Services, Node4 needed to complete a rigorous third-party audit. This audit verifies that services are delivered with enterprise-class reliability, security and support.

Node4 is one of a few number of Cisco partners to have invested time and money into the CMSP accreditation.

“Renewing the Master Service Provider designation was very important to us at Node4. Achieving the designation for the new UCaaS, HCS based solution in addition to the original two clearly validates Node4’s commitment to delivering world-class cloud infrastructures and services,”

Andrew Gilbert, CEO, Node4.

“Through this accreditation, our customers can be confident they are working with the right partner to help them fulfil the potential of deploying cloud solutions, with a best practice approach to managing and designing Cisco-based solutions.”

The Master Service Provider designation also recognizes Node4’s investment and commitment to providing cloud and managed services at Cisco’s highest standards. The shared goal is to help businesses and organisations realize faster time to value.

So, this means that our customers now have the ability to back up any type of data regardless of where it sits, whether that be on-premise, equipment collocated in our data centres or in the cloud. And, since then, Node4 customers have enjoyed access to a self-service portal, from where they can rapidly restore data from backups.

“This award means a lot to us and we’re over the moon to have been honoured by Veeam Software for our achievements over the last year. Our partnership and combined expertise has enabled us to offer the market the very best in hosted products and services, which has addressed a common challenge amongst our customers.

Derby, UK, 14th July 2015 – Moving Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity to the Cloud is critical if the enterprise is going to benefit from the most resilient and scalable service, according to experts at the 4th Cloud Clarity forum, held last week.

Hosted by Cloud and Data Centre specialist Node4, the event brought together a host of Cloud experts and Node4 customers to discuss how Cloud backup services can meet the needs of businesses.

The Cloud Clarity event, which took place at The Gherkin, London, highlighted the increasingly important role of the Cloud in data security strategies and enabling rapid Disaster Recovery. Guest speakers included Martin Warren, of Node4 partner and data management, and recovery specialist NetApp, who presented real world examples of how Cloud infrastructures and Backup Services are transforming service delivery and simplifying management – including Node4 customer, Breyer Construction.
The event included forward-thinking discussions of the future of enterprise backup, both in the Cloud and offline, and the implications of upcoming backup methods and media on the enterprise.

Steve Denby, Head of Sales South, Node4, comments: “As each event passes, we continue to see increased adoption and understanding of how the Cloud can benefit the enterprise, particularly as leaders come to appreciate the true value of their data – and rapid recovery should disaster strike. Through partnerships with leaders in data backup and recovery technology we continue to enhance our Cloud offering, ensuring our customers have piece of mind that their data is protected.”
