iland Named Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service

For the fourth year in a row, iland has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service.

The Gartner Magic Quadrants are graphical representations of the key providers of technology solutions to enterprises. Gartner assesses companies based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute that vision. The assessments see companies assigned to one of four categories: Niche players, visionaries, challengers, and leaders.

In the latest Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service, iland achieved the fourth highest score for ability to execute out of the 22 companies included in the report and retained its position as a leader for the fourth consecutive year.

With so many companies now providing disaster recovery as a service, competition is fierce. Recently over 7 companies that have developed DRaaS offerings have been acquired by other companies or have experienced serious financial difficulties. iland on the other hand is going from strength to strength. The company has been providing DRaaS offerings for 12 years and is still one of the leading firms offering DRaaS to enterprises. iland’s other products include the popular iland Secure Cloud, Secure Cloud Backup, and it has just launched Autopilot Managed Recovery, a fully managed business continuity solution.

iland’s disaster recovery as a service offering is built on VMware technology and is used by enterprises large and small around the world. The company now has nine data centers, in the United States, the UK, the Netherlands, Singapore, and Australia, and corporate headquarters in the United States, UK, and Australia.

“iland is proud to once again be recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for DRaaS,” said Justin Giardina, CTO, iland. “But we’re even more proud of the 12 years of service and support we’ve been able to provide customers, giving them a platform in the cloud to support and protect their businesses.
