Multinational customers fuel iland’s expansion into Asia-Pacific region
LONDON– 22 July, 2014 – iland, an award-winning enterprise cloud infrastructure provider, today announced it is expanding its footprint into Singapore to address the demands of new and existing customers that require robust global cloud environments. Through the deployment in Pacnet’s CloudSpace II data centre (SGCS2), iland can ensure customers have access to the highest quality facilities that pass rigorous audits for security, processes and controls.
As cloud adoption continues to climb, multinational companies are racing to implement global cloud strategies that ensure resources can be easily managed and scaled. However, many continue to struggle to predict costs, overcome complexity challenges and satisfy compliance requirements. iland’s proven Enterprise Cloud Services (iland ECS) deliver the visibility, performance and personalised support required to avoid these issues upfront and achieve faster return on investment. With data centres throughout the United Kingdom, United States and now Singapore, iland’s services are designed to seamlessly support development, testing, business continuity and production workloads.
“Singapore is a hub of business and technological innovation, and we are pleased to expand into the region as we support the global cloud initiatives of several of our multinational customers,” said Scott Sparvero, CEO and co-founder. “Enterprise cloud hosting should be hassle-free, secure and compliant with applicable requirements. We are committed to working directly with customers to address their dynamic needs and ensure they can drive and protect business.”
“We are very pleased that iland chose Pacnet’s Singapore CloudSpace facility to introduce its cloud services into Asia-Pacific,” said Giles Proctor, Pacnet’s Vice President of Data Centre Services. “With direct connectivity to Pacnet’s robust subsea cable infrastructure and interconnected data centre network throughout Asia-Pacific, iland can flexibly and seamlessly support the needs of its customers."
Delivering the high performance that companies require for successful cloud implementation, iland ECS leverages cutting-edge Cisco UCS, Ivy Bridge microarchitecture by Intel, advanced storage and VMware technology. It is utilising Pacnet’s SGCS2 data centre, which is the first in Singapore to be recognised with Uptime Institute’s Tier III Certification of Design Documents.
iland ECS includes a portal that empowers IT and business users to quickly provision cloud services, predict and control costs, manage resources, maximise performance and enhance compliance. Rooted in a consultative approach to service, iland also has deep experience in enabling companies across the globe to protect themselves against human error, cybercrime and natural disasters through its unique Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) offering.
iland has been ranked as a leader in Forrester Research, Inc.’s report, “The Forrester Wave™: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q1 2014.” Forrester gave iland the highest scores possible for its core DRaaS offerings, recovery objective capabilities, platform and application support, data resiliency and risk mitigation, security, value proposition and vision, as well as pricing, service levels and contract terms.
Pacnet’s SGCS2 data centre is an eight-storey, 155,000-square foot standalone facility, strategically located in Paya Lebar. It is part of the Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN) infrastructure, the ﬁrst pan-Asian Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) architecture enabling organisations to provision network resources within minutes across multiple sites.
SGCS2 was awarded a GoldPLUS Rating in the new Green Mark for Data Centre by Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore, which is the equivalent to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the US Green Building Council.
