iland Toronto data centre
Secure application and data protection cloud services provider, iland (www.iland.com) has announced its new cloud region with the opening of its tenth data centre in Toronto, Canada.
New location is iland’s first global cloud region in Canada providing access to the company’s full suite of secure cloud services built on iland’s Secure Cloud Platform, including Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Backup as a Service (BaaS), and backup services for Office 365, in addition to Cloud Object Storage available later in the year.
The Toronto facility is the company’s first cloud region in Canada and opens new markets for iland’s North American resellers, and is actively engaging new partners in the region, especially those with customers using VMware and Veeam solutions.
“By extending iland services into Canada, we can better serve new customers and partners who seek the benefits of cloud computing, but must also meet Canada’s data sovereignty requirements,” says Brian Ussher, iland’s president and co-founder.
“Many of our North American customers and partners have operations that span across the United States and Canada border. Meeting the security and environmental standards of both sides will give them the peace of mind that their data and workloads are both proximal and secure.”
iland’s new cloud region is designed green to meet environmental demands of Canadian consumers and regulations, earning it a Gold level for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) (www.usgbc.org/leed). The building includes granular-temperature and optimized-lighting controls, a rainwater capture irrigation system, cold aisle containment and high-efficiency-Turbocor chillers.
The Toronto facility is iland’s first cloud region in Canada with plans for an additional Canadian location later this year.
