iland DRaaS offering helps companies efficiently achieve secure IT resiliency

HOUSTON – June 20, 2016 – iland, an award-winning enterprise cloud infrastructure provider, today announced that it has been identified by Gartner Inc. as a Leader in the 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service.”*

In the Magic Quadrant for this market sector, Gartner analysts evaluated 20 service providers offering Disaster Recovery as a Service (DR), based on the criteria of ‘ability to execute’ and ‘completeness of vision.’

According to the report, “In recent years, IT disaster recovery (DR) as a whole and DRaaS specifically have gained momentum for small and midsize organizations due to improved affordability and functionality. Gartner estimates the DRaaS market will nearly triple in the next three years to a revenue point of $3.4 billion by 2019. In addition, DRaaS interest has grown significantly among large enterprises during the past year, as Gartner witnessed a 77% increase in inquiries from these organizations throughout 2015.”

“From human error to cyber terrorism, companies today face more threats – and downtime is more costly – than ever before. For years, we’ve teamed with customers and other industry leaders to ensure companies around the globe can cost-efficiently protect business with solid backup, disaster recovery and advanced security,” said Brian Ussher, president, iland. “We’re proud to be named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service, as we feel it further validates our strength in helping customers stay ahead of emerging threats with leading technology and expert support.”
