We are excited to expand iland Enterprise Cloud Services into more of our data centers at a time when the momentum of customers moving to the cloud is increasing,” commented Brian Ussher, President of iland.

iland™, the global cloud infrastructure provider and VMware Service Provider Partner of the Year Global 2012, today announced the availability of its enterprise-grade cloud platform, iland Enterprise Cloud Services (iland ECS), in iland’s Reston, Va. data center. This deployment demonstrates the continued growth of the cloud services provider as more customers recognize the trusted environment iland offers and see it as the destination of choice to run production workloads, test and development and disaster recovery requirements in the cloud. Reston is the latest addition to iland’s established Enterprises Cloud Services sites in Dallas, Texas and London, UK.

iland ECS is a self-service cloud infrastructure built on the latest version of VMware vCloud technology that iland is providing to an increasing number of customers. iland ECS simplifies network configuration, enabling customers to easily and rapidly scale their IT environments as business requirements change. It also enables customers to reduce downtime by modifying virtual machines while they are running. In addition it allows recoverability, enabling customers to revert back to previous version of their virtual machines.

“We are excited to expand iland Enterprise Cloud Services into more of our data centers at a time when the momentum of customers moving to the cloud is increasing,” commented Brian Ussher, President of iland. “We believe iland ECS truly advances the needle with its comprehensive hybrid cloud capability, 100% availability Service Level Agreement (SLA), and the flexibility of our unique price models. iland ECS offers a highly scalable and flexible cloud environment that enables our customers to maintain the innovative culture they’ve created, bring products to market faster and increase the efficiency and profitability of their production systems.”

iland also announced its listing as a cloud provider on CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange and is deploying iland CloudConnect in CoreSite’s Reston, Va. data center. CoreSite is a premier provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled data center solutions across the United States. Its Open Cloud Exchange marketplace offers best-of-breed partnerships and services from a broad range of providers, including iland. iland CloudConnect enables enterprises to build cost-effective and flexible hybrid cloud environments by establishing a dedicated network connection from private VMware-based platforms to iland's cloud, enabling iland to provide iland ECS and other products to customers securely, easily and with low latency.

iland CloudConnect is available to any CoreSite customer operating a VMware environment, allowing them to directly connect their private environments to iland’s public cloud environment and meet their hybrid cloud goals. iland CloudConnect’s direct connection offers reduced network costs, increased bandwidth throughput and a more consistent network experience than internet-based connections.

“We’re pleased that iland has joined Open Cloud Exchange,” said Jarrett Appleby, COO, CoreSite. “As a longstanding customer of CoreSite, iland is a trusted cloud provider that offers our community of VMware-based customers a reliable and cost-effective platform to which they can extend their local environments and create secure hybrid clouds. We look forward to strengthening our established relationship with iland as it continues to grow its cloud services within our data centers.”
