iland, an award-winning global cloud service provider of secure and compliant Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and cloud backup services, has announced the availability of their Secure Cloud Services from a new data centre location in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
This expansion positions iland, which was established in 1995 and has been delivering cloud services globally for over 11 years, to continue to service customers across EMEA with a new focus on the Benelux region and further supports iland’s global growth. With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline also looming in May 2018, as well as Brexit negotiations underway, the opening of this new data centre means that iland will continue to meet the data privacy requirements of customers in the EU.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of the relaunch of iland’s channel programme last month which has been revamped to enable channel partners to easily build a cloud business and serve both new and existing customers in the Netherlands and the wider EU region. iland sees a huge market opportunity for channel partners who are already well versed with VMware, Veeam, Zerto and other virtualisation products to diversify their businesses into Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Cloud Backup and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and is actively recruiting channel partners in the Netherlands.
Dante Orsini, SVP Business Development at iland, commented: “This is an incredibly exciting time for iland as we expand our global footprint and increase our focus on working with channel partners to deliver value to customers. We have undertaken extensive research to ensure that the facility satisfies our needs as well as those of our partners and customers. Both Brexit and GDPR were two key factors in deciding to deliver our Secure Cloud Services from the Netherlands. We are delighted with the continued growth we are experiencing across Europe and look forward to continuing to help European customers adopt business-critical cloud initiatives.”
“The CSN Groep is partnering with iland to help customers in the Netherlands ensure business continuity and cloud security with iland’s market-leading DRaaS and Cloud Backup solutions,” said David Schapp, CTO of CSN Groep, a leading Managed Services Provider in the Netherlands. We’re excited about the investment iland is making in their Secure Cloud platform in this region, both for the growth opportunities it provides to our business as well as for our customers. iland is a good fit for the CSN Groep as they share our priorities on cloud security, technology excellence, availability and a keen focus on customer success.”
iland’s other data centres are in Los Angeles, Dallas, Washington D.C., London, Manchester and Singapore. In addition, iland will be opening a data centre in Sydney, Australia in August of 2017.
iland’s global data centres were chosen not only for their ability to meet iland’s advanced security and compliance standards, but also for their strategic placement near large population centres for disaster recovery and good access to the world’s best networks.
Each state-of-the-art facility plays host to the workloads of growing businesses, both local and global, requiring additional capacity, local presence, or sophisticated disaster recovery support. iland also has backup facilities at every location.
The proprietary iland Secure Cloud platform is built on VMware vCloud virtualisation, a familiar platform for many businesses, which eases the transition and time to market for adopting cloud services. iland cloud services can be monitored and managed through the iland Secure Cloud Console, which provides visibility and powerful management features across billing, performance, security, compliance, testing and reporting from a single pane of glass. To help customers and channel partners respond to an environment of increased risk from cyber-attacks, ransomware and other threats, advanced security features are natively integrated into the iland cloud platform, which is fully certified and compliant with industry regulations including ISO 27001, SOC 2, ITIL, HIPAA, G-Cloud and CSA STAR.Click below to share this article
