It's hard to read the newspaper these days without hearing about yet another business that has been severly impacted by downtime in IT systems resulting in loss of data - whether caused by malware attacks such as ransomware, natural disasters or plain old human error. IT leaders everywhere are highly focused on protecting critical business data. At the most basic level, this means backing up data in a secure location. Increasingly, due to security, geographic considerations as well as cost-effectiveness, this secure location is the cloud.

Last week I had the pleasure of heading down to New Orleans to attend VeeamOn 2017. The focus of the week was availability for the always-on enterprise. It was an amazing three days of sessions, keynotes and discussions with customers.

My first job, while at university on my industrial placement year, was working with a civil engineering consultancy firm helping to design the English Channel Tunnel, amongst other things.

With VeeamON 2017 right around the corner, I wanted to get you excited about some of the top things you need to make sure to do while attending!

If you’re hip to the cloud scene, you know that more and more businesses in the legal sector are transitioning to the cloud. Many firms were hesitant to make the switch as data privacy and security were major concerns. However, according to The American Bar Association, cloud usage in 2016 grew by more than 20 percent.
One Tennessee firm, Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, found that the iland Secure Cloud services met their business needs for a reliable, secure, and efficient backup and disaster recovery solution.

Yes, that's right folks its World Backup Day again and, while we at iland certainly don't recommend only thinking about backup on this one official day, it's a good opportunity to stop and think about the backup strategy you have for your company data and mission-critical IT systems. At iland, we've chosen to use World Backup Day to reflect on how the market has evolved in relation to backup and DR adoption and how cloud services have helped that evolution.
