The iland Workforce Cloud: Go ahead keep your head and desktop in the cloud

iland Workforce Cloud allows secure desktop connections to corporate data while supporting disaster recovery, business continuity and compliance

Its funny how things work out, as a child I was always told keep my head out of the clouds, hence I took up a career in operations management and later technology instead of becoming an actor or musician. Oh how things come full circle, since these days I constantly have my head in the clouds…cloud computing, but nevertheless. My latest trip to the cloud landed me at iland cloud infrastructure. iland is a provider of cloud computing infrastructure with high-availability datacenters across North America and Europe.
