iland, an award-winning enterprise cloud infrastructure provider, today announced the expansion of its U.K. cloud operations and the immediate availability of iland Enterprise Cloud Services (iland ECS) out of its new Manchester datacenter. The company is also enhancing its existing London datacenter which will fully support the newest iland ECS capabilities in April 2014.
With this expansion, companies can more easily deploy and manage private, pubic and hybrid cloud environments while addressing regional data sovereignty and privacy issues. Now with three datacenters in the U.K., iland is also giving customers more flexibility to geographically disperse their clouds to support disaster recovery plans. Teams continue to have access to local iland experts that deliver customized support throughout the cloud lifecycle.
