Launches first of its kind, managed replication and continuity service to UK; presents channel-ready offerings for SMB through to enterprise
Hoffman Estates, IL, and Houston, TX, August 17, 2009 – Vizioncore Inc., the market leader in virtualization data protection and management solutions, and iland™ Internet Solutions today announced that iland, a leading global provider of Cloud Infrastructure Services, has chosen Vizioncore's vReplicator and vConverter products to underpin iland's outsourced, cloud-based disaster recovery services in the UK. The new channel-ready service forms part of the global iland Continuity Cloud, a highly resilient infrastructure spread across six datacenters and the first to offer managed transatlantic disaster recovery services.
With virtualization reaching maturity in organizations of all sizes, simplifying its management has become the next hurdle for business and topping that list is successfully protecting and recovering data by implementing a business continuity and disaster recovery plan. The new service from iland provides UK businesses with an opportunity to fully protect their virtual estate by provisioning Virtual LANs on the iland Continuity Cloud, replicating to the highly-available datacenters using vReplicator, and continuously monitoring both sets of infrastructure. In the event of an extended outage, the business can fully recover using its replicated estate and continue operating as it had before, saving valuable time, not to mention money.
“We’re excited to begin offering this service in the UK, a country which has wholeheartedly adopted virtualization technologies," said Dante Orsini, Channel Director, iland Internet Solutions. "By opening the door to our London hub, we’re also now able to offer a transatlantic service to enterprises with global operations, a real first. Partnering with Vizioncore made perfect sense for us as it has long been at the forefront of innovation in virtualization. By combining Vizioncore technical excellence and iland’s high levels of service reputation, we’re delivering a truly original service that is ready for channel partners of all kinds to take advantage of.”
iland brings together a range of industry-leading components to provide the foundations to its service offering including 10Gbps Ethernet low-latency IP connections and highly specialized and experienced virtualization support teams to turn on, test and maintain during the service agreement.
“iland has built a fantastic service portfolio, and we’re proud to have been chosen to be part of that,” commented Roger Baskerville, VP EMEA, Vizioncore. "By choosing vReplicator and vConverter, iland gives its customers tried and tested products to rely upon, teamed with true professionals to guide them. The new service will also present Vizioncore’s multi-tier channel with a unique opportunity to provide differentiated services to businesses of all sizes, and we’re already seeing significant interest in re-packaging the offering.”
“Softcat has long been an advocate of enhancing the virtualization solutions we deliver with Vizioncore’s technology,” commented Sam Routledge, Services Director at Softcat, a UK infrastructure provider and Vizioncore Platinum Partner. “The robust protection offered by vReplicator is a core part of our disaster recovery offering for our clients’ virtualized infrastructures, and the potential of a service offering from iland based on this proposition is an exciting one for us.”
The new service is available now.
