Before turning to iland, Allegany’s business continuity strategy required an unnecessary amount of in-house heavy lifting, and the company had to operate a secondary data center with redundant hardware purely for disaster recovery purposes. As a small business operating in a relatively rural area, the company only had one choice when it came to internet services which created additional challenges. The 100 mbps fiber connection, although generally reliable, was responsible for keeping Allegany’s two locations connected and the business up and running. Its two offices were located only a couple of hours apart, meaning if an outage or disaster were to occur that impacted both regions, the company would be unable to failover and stay online.
Since Allegany already used Veeam for backup on premises, they sought a partner that could seamlessly integrate into their existing Veeam solution, while simultaneously implementing disaster recovery in the cloud.

“As a global cloud provider, we are focused on helping organizations in all types of industries take advantage of what cloud has to offer, while enabling them to focus on business innovation,” said Brian Ussher, president and co-founder of iland. “Security has been baked into our DNA from the start, and as internal and external threats continue to evolve, so does iland’s approach to protecting data. Allegany chose iland Secure DRaaS with Veeam to provide the security, replication and failover capabilities it needed to comply with state regulations and ensure its business is always online and protected.”
With iland Secure Cloud DRaaS for Veeam, the team was able to meet all of their business objectives and greatly simplify the company’s disaster recovery plan. Allegany no longer had to rely on its fiber internet connection or maintain its secondary data center, saving money and freeing them up to focus on more pertinent business initiatives.
