iland Secure DRaaS offering recognized for second consecutive year

HOUSTON, TX & LONDON, UK – June 28, 2017 — / — iland, the award-winning global secure cloud services provider, today announced that it has been named by Gartner Inc. as a Leader in the 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service” for the second year in the row. In the Magic Quadrant for this market sector, Gartner analysts evaluated 23 service providers that offer Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), based on their “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.”

According to the report, Gartner estimates DRaaS to be a $2 billion business that is expected to reach $3.73 billion by 2021. Customers across all industry sectors who are challenged with threats to IT systems, including cyber-attacks such as ransomware, are increasingly looking to cloud-based disaster recovery solutions to ensure IT resiliency.

iland Secure DRaaS?, built on top of iland’s Secure Cloud IaaS platform, ensures customers’ workloads are protected beyond simple backup with a disaster recovery process tuned to business priorities and compliance requirements. IT workloads can be replicated from virtual or physical environments to iland’s global secure cloud platform where customers can achieve recovery time goals in minutes.

“For more than a decade, iland’s Secure DRaaS has been giving customers the confidence and assurance that their data is protected and applications are available and performing equally or better than their source production environments during the event of a disaster,” said iland President, Brian Ussher. “We’re honored to be recognized for the second year in a row as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service. We believe this further substantiates our commitment to innovating within the DRaaS market and bringing our customers peace of mind when managing the risk of emerging IT threats.”

This recognition from Gartner comes after the recent launch of a new iland data center location in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from which secure cloud services will be delivered to customers across Europe. A new data center location in Sydney, Australia will also open later in the summer as iland expands to meet the needs of global customers. As part of this expansion, iland has further developed its channel program to enable managed service providers, resellers and agents to take advantage of the burgeoning cloud services opportunity.

iland partners with VMware, Zerto, Veeam, and Double-Take to bring the best replication technologies to customers so they can easily and efficiently execute failovers and tests via iland’s proven Secure Cloud Console – a single interface that provides visibility and management control of the recovery process and other iland cloud services for customers.

We believe this industry recognition underscores strength of services and commitment to customers
