And Then Magic Happens: DRaaS and DNS Management

Lilac Schoenbeck

In the years we've been working with DRaaS, one consistent feature of the sales process has been a bit of awe when someone first sees a failover happen.

Scott Sparvero

Creative Cloud solutions to Old Problems

Farhan Chughtai

In the latest release of the iland ECS Management Console, we focused on the needs of our customers around advanced security and compliance reporting delivered with a modern design focused on user experience. As part of the advanced security features, we added new roles and permissions, two-factor authentication, vulnerability scanning, and VM encryption. We also added a number of new reports around compliance including additional event logging, anti-virus and malware scanning, integrity monitoring, and several other deeper security monitoring tools.

Cloud Scalability is Real Today

Lilac Schoenbeck

It’s perhaps the most captivating myth of cloud: autoscaling. Everyone has been talking about it since the advent of this new-ish computing model. Workloads just KNOW when Ellen has mentioned your web site on the air, demand spikes, and the cloud compensates. The cloud becomes some nimble, always-on, semi-sentient member of your IT staff with extraordinary reflexes.
