You may have read that iland recently expanded our channel program to help resellers and managed service providers take advantage of the burgeoning cloud opportunity and deliver market-leading cloud services to small and medium businesses.
Read the Vermont Law School Case Study here.
Like many organizations, the Vermont Law School IT team were acutely aware of increasing risks from cyber-attacks such as ransomware and had plans to implement a Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution to combat such risks. These plans were expedited when the school suffered a ransomware attack, which proved to be very costly and time-consuming to recover from.
The Vermont Law School IT team turned to their trusted IT partner, GreenPages, for consultation and advice on a cloud-based DR solution. With their knowledge of Vermont Law School's requirements, which included working with a familiar VMware-based cloud provider, advanced security features, and an easy to mangage and cost-effective solution, GreenPages recommended iland as the preferred DR provider along with the iland Secure DRaaS with Zerto solution.
With the guidance of GreenPages, Vermont Law School benefitted from an efficient and straight-forward onboarding process that got them up and running and replicating their vSphere virtual machines to the iland Secure Cloud very quickly. Vulnerability scanning and encryption features help them meet compliance requirements and the IT team loves working with the intuitive management console that delivers the DR visibility and ease of management they need.
This story is a great example of how, through iland partnerships with resellers such as GreenPages, small and medium businesses can benefit from reliable and secure DR solutions that were previously only available to enterprise organizations with huge IT budgets. After all, the value of cloud services including IaaS, DRaaS and cloud backup are key to the continued growth and success of the SMB sector. I think Sean Lee, the General Manager of IT at Vermont Law School puts it best though:
"In this age of increased cyber-attacks, the value of having the iland DRaaS solution in place is practically incalculable. Our IT system are protected and secure should the worst happen."
