Node4 has announced that it has relaunched its Replicated Disaster Recovery Service (RDRS), now fully underpinned by NetApp infrastructure. The support of NetApp for Node4’s RDRS means that is able to offer a fully joined up solution for businesses with pre-existing NetApp infrastructure, or those looking to deploy NetApp on-premises, including supplying equipment, ongoing management and protection.
Node4 have added these capabilities to its portfolio following significant investment in NetApp technology. Through the acquisition of LETN in August 2014 Node4 is an accredited NetApp Gold Partner – offering equipment and a wide range of specialist services, including back up, support and managed services for NetApp.
Node4 Replicated Disaster Recovery provides several tailored levels of protection for businesses’ critical applications and data. Using its IaaS platform, Node4 can replicate servers and data to one or more of its Data Centres and failover within an agreed time.
The levels of protection available through Node4’s RDRS are:
– Off site data replication
– Off site data replication and server image replication with server cold start
– Site-to-Site infrastructure replication with server cold start
– Site-to-Site infrastructure replication with automated failover (typically 15 minutes)
Steve Denby, Head of Sales South at Node4, commented: “Protecting critical data and applications are issues every organisation faces. In the event of a disaster, your business needs the infrastructure to run your critical business applications. This can take time and money: rebuilding is a time consuming task and paying for third party disaster recovery companies is expensive. NetApp removes a lot of these headaches and if you have invested, or are thinking of investing in NetApp then you need to have the right team with the right accreditations supporting you. This is a crucial part of any business’ infrastructure and with our RDRS capabilities we believe that Node4 is now the partner of choice for NetApp.”
