Want to Backup to the Cloud, right now? Start here.

iland Cloud is all about the customer. Since the beginning, we have been focused on finding new ways to protect our customers’ mission critical data while also working to simplify their cloud experience. We work hard to make the “goodness of cloud” great for our customers.

One of the ways we improve the experience is to simplify as much as possible about service adoption – including everything from our comprehensive onboarding process, to our customer support. So, it’s no surprise that we get excited when Veeam, one of our largest partners, announces a new version of their industry-leading software that delivers on the same customer-focused goal.

Veeam’s announcement

Veeam just announced a free version of their Availability Suite – specifically, their Backup & Replication Community Edition. This isn’t a trial version. It’s a no-strings attached free version that customers can start using (right now) to evaluate one of the leading data protection providers in the marketplace.

Why it matters

At iland, the customer experience is paramount to driving value. In a data protection context, we view the importance of the experience right alongside availability, security, and protection. In this case, Veeam is enabling customers to protect their data without worrying about a time-based evaluation period. That’s a good customer experience any way you look at it.
