This is the second time iland has been recognized by Veeam in this way, having been honored with the same award in 2015, and follows a period of signifcant growth in our Veeam Cloud Connect backup and Veeam DRaaS solutions. In 2017, iland achieved 300% year-on-year growth with Veeam solutions, a testament to the value we deliver across pre-sales, onboarding, support, management and security to customers across many industries. Against a backdrop of increased threats to IT systems from cyber-attacks and natural disasters combined with increased business reliance on data and the correspondingly significant potential business losses from downtime, the mission Veeam and iland share to help customers implement highly secure, reliable and cost-effective business continuity solutions is essential to many companies. iland was also recognized by Gartner as a Leader in the 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service” for the second time.**
Customers can leverage Veeam technology to backup and replicate virtual machines to the iland global secure cloud platform and benefit from iland's built in multi-layer security and compliance, industry-leading support and feature-rich management console. Just some examples of iland's commitment to driving increased customer value across Veeam solutions over the past year include our integration of Veeam Cloud Connect to the iland cloud console, providing the capability to view and manage Veeam backup repositories in the iland cloud through a self-service intuitive interface. Customers can monitor cloud storage usage, scale up resources when needed, get detailed insights on costs and billing and use analytical data to forecast future backup storage needs. Additionally, iland launched an all inclusive pricing package for Veeam DRaaS that reduces the core monthly cost of replication down to storage consumption as well as simplified pricing for Veeam Cloud Connect to remove barriers to adoption for companies of all sizes.
iland and Veeam work together across many areas - from developing product strategies and new technical features to sales opportunities and executing marketing campaigns - to drive innovation in cloud backup and DR solutions and continually optimize the customer experience. In delivering this award, Veeam described iland as "an ideal partner in their dedication to our joint customers, constant collaboration and our shared commitment to delivering availability".
Thank-you Veeam for this accolade! We look forward to continuing our collaboration to drive increased value to customers with market-leading cloud backup and DR solutions.
