Benefits of Node4’s Managed Azure Hybrid Cloud solution allows user to create personalised Azure region in a Node4 data centre on dedicated infrastructure with similar APIs and multiple PaaS services. You can use the same skills and tools to maintain consistency across the data centre and the Azure environment. Users will also gain access to Azure infrastructure via one of Node4’s data centres for performance-sensitive databases and workloads. Azure benefits, include free security updates for EoL, Windows, and SQL Server versions across the hybrid environment.
The solution, which utilises Microsoft Azure Stack HCI and Microsoft Azure Arc includes hot-node scalability, which allows customers to scale on demand.
Andrew Slater, Technology Practice Director – Cloud at Node4, says: “Our new Managed Azure Hybrid Cloud solution is a logical, intuitive offering. It allows businesses to migrate substantially more of their legacy infrastructure into an Azure environment without the challenges that often frustrate their digital transformation process. We predict many organisations will use the solution as a stepping-stone while migrating legacy VM environments to Azure. Others, with precise performance or data sovereignty needs, will maintain it as a long-term infrastructure component.”
