Based on customer demand, iland is announcing a new data center in Canada, joining nine other iland data centers around the world including Los Angeles, Dallas, Washington, D.C., London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney. As a global cloud hosting services provider delivering secured and compliant hosting for Infrastructure (IaaS), Disaster Recovery (DRaaS), and Backup as a Service (BaaS), iland has also launched its new channel program.
Iland’s new Canadian data center will provide access to the company’s full suite of secured cloud services, built on iland’s Secure Cloud Platform, including Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Backup as a Service (BaaS).
The new iland channel program includes a partner portal for training, certification and sales management. It also includes expanded opportunities for regional partners in North America through the addition of a data center in Canada, as well as a complementary cloud assessment tool to help partners and customers plan and manage their data and workloads in the cloud.
“The iland global partner program serves customers across six continents who are moving to the cloud for the first time or expanding their infrastructure across a complex hybrid cloud environment,” said Koorosh Khashayar, vice president of iland global channels. “iland provides the tools and expertise to make the migration to the cloud safe, simple and painless, while helping partners open doors to new opportunities and creating new revenue sources with existing customers.”
Cloud Services Resellers
The new iland partner portal helps train and enable resellers through a customizable single source for courses, certifications and marketing toolkits. The portal is part of a broader effort to improve how iland works with partners to identify leads and close sales. iland is also enhancing the process for partners to register new deals including providing greater visibility into the sales pipeline.
The iland channel program provides partners with three options: refer a customer to iland and collect recurring commissions; resell iland services; or include iland’s platform as a part of a larger service offering.
Updates to Catalyst Cloud Assessment Tool
iland is announcing several new updates to its complementary Catalyst cloud assessment tool that would help partners and customers simplify their journey to the cloud. Catalyst enables customers to right-size their cloud resources by determining bandwidth and capacity needs when moving to the cloud for the first time or planning for future workloads and demands.
“iland provides ConRes and our customers with the easiest path to the cloud,” said Kevin McCann, chief operating officer of iland partner, ConRes – a global solutions provider based in Bedford, Mass. “The availability of 10 data centers around the world enables our customers to reach new markets with just the right amount of cloud resources. Tools like Catalyst and our new custom partner portal give us the insight and intelligence to provide the best possible solutions for our customers.”
“iland’s resources and training provide us with a competitive advantage to win enterprise accounts that might otherwise lean toward a big box cloud provider,” said Ian Stewart, manager of strategic sourcing with iland partner, Network Service Providers Ltd. in New Zealand. “With a platform that allows customers to migrate applications to the cloud without rewriting them, and experts around the world trained in IT security, compliance and cloud infrastructure, we can compete and win on the enterprise level.”
