Avoiding Ransomware in the Cloud - Watch the Webinar

Monica Brink

Cloud security and compliance has been top of mind for IT leaders for some time now and, recently, a more specific cloud security threat has emerged - that of ransomware. With adoption of cloud computing for more mission-critical use cases growing, there is naturally concern about protecting against ransomware in the cloud as well as on-premise. Our iland CTO, Justin Giardina, recently wrote about the threats and means of remediating them in CloudTech - check out his article here.  Justin will be also be joining the Chief Cybersecurity Officer of Trend Micro, Ed Cabrera, to deliver a webinar on this topic - don't miss it:

The Budget Battle: Don't Kill DRaaS

Lilac Schoenbeck

We are rapidly approaching the end of 2016. With it will come a million blogs prognosticating 2017 trends, setting priorities and suggesting resolutions. We are also rapidly approaching, for many, the 2017 budget cycle, the most coveted gala event of the IT year. 

This wont be a blog about new promises, new plans or new resolutions. This will be a blog about an old one: DRaaS.

Cloud Gatherings Across The UK

Monica Brink

It's been a busy week for the UK iland team - we attended 2 events in regional UK and spent a lot of time talking with IT folks about cloud hosting, disaster recovery and backup, security, cloud management and more. 

The first event was hosted by one of our iland resellers who are leaders in driving cloud adoption - the ComputerWorld Define Tomorrow event in Bristol. Around 200 IT professionals attended and were keen to discuss details of cloud solutions - particularly Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). At this event, our own iland Solutions Architect, Sam Woodcock, had the opportunity to demo onstage the iland and Zerto DRaaS solution. Unfortunately, during the demo, a server was hacked and attacked by ransomware (shock, horror!).

UK Survey Shows Long Way to Go on DR Testing

Monica Brink

In our recent survey on IT Disaster Recovery in the UK, we were keen to include questions on DR testing.  This is one of the most important considerations when implementing a cloud-based disaster recovery solution and, indeed, can make or break the success of any DR strategy.  The mantra that our Solutions Architects like to use is: 'a DR solution is only as good as the quality of your testing'.

Cloud Backup and DR - The Problems with Seeding Data

Mike Mosley

What is data seeding?

Many companies are experiencing the benefits of cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions with the use of Veeam Backup and Replication, Zerto and Double-Take. However, each of these solutions require the first initial backup or replica of servers – and this can be a huge speed bump for many customers. Often, customers will request to seed the data in an effort to speed up the initial sync and I’ve had a lot of experience helping customers through this process at iland. Usually, this can be accomplished by creating backups or transferring VM files to an encrypted disk provided by iland. This disk will be sent to iland and the VM files, backups or replica data will be transferred to iland servers and used as a seed for the initial backup/replica.
