Cloud Adoption across Europe continues apace

Monica Brink

 While once perceived to be lagging behind their US counterparts in terms of cloud  adoption, European businesses are catching up -  with IDC forecasting that Western Europe will be the 2nd largest market after the US for public cloud services. While this increase is driven by the usual requirements for increased IT agility and reduced CAPEX spend on IT infrastructure, it is also increasingly being driven by the need for higher levels of IT security and resiliency.  This week, iland responded to this increased demand with the launch of our new data centre location in Amsterdam, the Netherlands to deliver secure cloud services including IaaS, DRaaS and Cloud Backup across Benelux and the wider EU region.
