KPN and iland, a global cloud service provider of secure and compliant Infrastructure (IaaS), disaster recovery (DRaaS) and Backup-as-a-service (BaaS) announced a partnership that will see iland's DRaaS solutions made available to new and existing KPN business customers.
KPN stated that the partnership was motivated by the security and scalability of iland’s solutions and its rapid implementation capabilities, whilst iland cited the alliance with KPN as being evidence of its concerted and strategic approach to a more channel focused direction across EMEA.
iland’s DRaaS solutions are available to all KPN customers, regardless of whether their infrastructure is hosted on-premises or in a multi-cloud environment. The partnership with iland is in line with KPN's multi-cloud strategy in which the company seeks more cooperation with partners instead of developing its own services and setting up data centres. The physical presence of iland in the Netherlands with a data centre in Amsterdam (opened in the summer of 2017) played an important role in the final choice for the cloud supplier.
