Leading UK Property Company talks about the value of the VMware Powered iland cloud

Monica Brink

At VMworld Europe this year, we were lucky to have many iland customers at the event to share their experiences on leveraging Secure Cloud services from our VMware Powered global cloud. One such customer was M J Mapp, a leading UK Property and Asset Management Company. Their story was so good that VMware recorded a video of Theo Ioakeim, IT Infrastructure Manager at M J Mapp, talking about the benefits they've realised from protecting their business with Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service with the VMware-based iland cloud in the UK.

Watch the video here.

3rd Party Firewalls in the iland Secure Cloud

Richard Stinton

One of the main barriers to adoption for public clouds over the past few years has been that of security. Fears of hacking and data theft have been heightened by cases in the media.

Many customers thought that cloud would automatically take care of security regarding attacks from the internet, and there have been great advances to allay these fears. However, for many public cloud providers not all bases are covered out of the box, and adding in security features can add significant cost and complexity to the solution.

Ensuring Data Protections in the Cloud

GDPR is on the minds of every business operating in the EU.

What is it? How do we adhere? What do we have to do?

We know the questions and concerns you have around this new law and we're here to help! We're hosting a webinar November 16th to cover how you should interact with your cloud services provider to ensure that you're in compliance with GDPR.

Navigating the Maze of Public Cloud Pricing

Richard Stinton

When looking at migrating to the public cloud, or starting from fresh in there, many customers find the array of pricing models mind boggling.

The hyper scale public cloud providers such as AWS and Azure use the idea of instance or t-shirt sizes for their virtual machines. There is a massive range of alternatives depending on the CPU type, number of CPUs, RAM, the number of virtual disks that can be attached, whether they have GPU acceleration, etc.

Enabling Two-Factor Authentication in the iland Secure Cloud Console

Pete Benoit

How many online logins does the average person have? The easy answer is too many to secure.

In 2016, the average person had 27 unique online accounts with passwords to manage, according to an Intel Security survey. I couldn’t find similar numbers specifically for IT personnel but we can be safe in assuming that number is significantly higher.

Are Availability Zones a Disaster Recovery Solution?

Richard Stinton

It’s interesting to see that Microsoft Azure are previewing availability zones in two of their data center regions.

Amazon AWS have had this capability for quite a while – but what exactly is an availability zone, and does it provide full resiliency for applications in the cloud? Is it a good disaster recovery strategy?

For both cloud vendors, the original premise was to provide better availability, and to protect against failure of the underlying platform (hypervisor, physical server, network, perhaps storage).

Make the Case to Add Disaster Recovery to Your IT Budget

Will Urban

I’ve been helping customers do disaster recovery and business continuity for a very, very long time now. Back in the day, we would take a mirrored drive out of a server and put it on a shelf in another location. Implementing SAN based replication to another site and making sure OS patches and firmware were up-to-date and uniform used to play havoc with upgrade schedules.
