iland opens Amsterdam data centre for GDPR readiness

iland, a provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and cloud backup, is now offering Secure Cloud Services from a new data centre location in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. 

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline also looming in May 2018, as well as Brexit negotiations underway, the opening of this new data centre means that iland aims to continue to meet the data privacy requirements of customers in the EU, it says.

It follows the relaunch of iland’s channel program last month; iland sees a huge market opportunity for channel partners who are already well versed with VMware, Veeam, Zerto and other virtualization products to diversify their businesses into Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and is actively recruiting channel partners in the Netherlands.

Dante Orsini, SVP Business Development at iland comments: “This is an incredibly exciting time for iland as we expand our global footprint and increase our focus on working with channel partners to deliver value to customers.  We have undertaken extensive research to ensure that the facility satisfies our needs as well as those of our partners and customers. Both Brexit and GDPR were two key factors in deciding to deliver our Secure Cloud services from the Netherlands. We are delighted with the continued growth we are experiencing across Europe and look forward to continuing to help European customers adopt business-critical cloud initiatives.” 

“The CSN Groep is partnering with iland to help customers in the Netherlands ensure business continuity and cloud security with iland’s market-leading DRaaS and Cloud Backup solutions,” said David Schapp, CTO of CSN Groep, a Managed Services Provider in the Netherlands.  We’re excited about the investment iland is making in their Secure Cloud platform in this region, both for the growth opportunities it provides to our business as well as for our customers.   iland is a good fit for the CSN Groep as they share our priorities on cloud security, technology excellence, availability and a keen focus on customer success.”
