Axis Next-Generation Summit Is Just One Week Away

We are just one week away from our Axis Spring Summit, an event that promises the opportunity to interact with leaders in cloud, hybrid, and security solutions. Our schedule allows partners to share solutions while providing one-on-one interaction to discuss your unique challenges.

Research we conducted while planning for the summit indicated that Infrastructure and Platform as a Service in 2019 and beyond. KPMG has projected that investment in PaaS will continue to grow from 32% in 2016 to 56% this year. Meanwhile, the security required to protect those platforms continues to grow in scale and complexity.

As for hybrid services, IT research giant Ovum recently reported that about 20 percent of businesses have moved to the cloud but that 80 percent of critical workloads and sensitive data remain on premise. This is due to a variety of reasons, including performance and regulatory requirements. When unique requirements are taken into account, it’s clear there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to cloud computing.

Today, we take a look at two Axis partners whose cloud-based solutions will be featured as part of the Axis Spring Summit. Keep an eye on our blog as we feature additional participants over the coming weeks.


If you have not yet had the chance to discuss iland with us, they are a global cloud service provider offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and Backup as a Service (BaaS). They are one of only two CSPs in the world to hold the Cloud Security Alliance STAR Gold Certification due to their commitment to security and compliance.

iland’s Secure Cloud Console product natively combines deeply layered security, predictive analytics, and compliance to deliver unmatched visibility and ease of management for all iland’s cloud services. With it you can:

  • Easily view, search, and manage all cloud resources;

iland is recognized as a leader in DRaaS by leading analysts, including Gartner and Forrester, and was named cloud partner of the year by VMware, Veeam, and Zerto. Their products and presentation are compelling, and we look forward to discussing them with you.
