In the past year, we’ve introduced new innovations into our DR solutions that help customers streamline onboarding and orchestrate and automate the entire disaster recovery process. Gartner Magic Quadrant Disaster Recovery as a Service Two important innovations that we believe helped us achieve the furthest overall position for completeness of vision in the Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service include:

  • iland Catalyst – a DR discovery tool, iland Catalyst, helps customers identify and prioritize workloads and correctly size the DR environment. With Catalyst, we can design a tailored DR environment and highlight areas of the customer source environment that require additional investigation to ensure a successful DR deployment.
  • iland Recovery Assurance – allows customers to build Disaster Recovery runbooks which can be leveraged for automated testing and failover. Detailed recovery testing reports are provided which are invaluable for compliance auditing purposes.
These product developments build on the key value-adding differentiators of our DR solutions, which include:

  • Completeness of DR offering with protection of physical, virtual, cloud, desktops and UCaaS
  • Simple, cost-effective pricing with a monthly cost and consumption-based compute model
  • Unmatched visibility and management through the iland Secure Cloud Console℠
  • World-class onboarding and support from design to testing to ongoing support
  • Highly secure & compliant global cloud platform, incorporating advanced security features, reporting and compliance professional services
