Help needed for finding a replacement rim!

Hi All, These are my current rims: Wheeltech TD26 by Alex Rims (can't find much info about these online). I need to replace the rear wheel as it is cracked (cracks on the rims around a few spokes)
It's a 700C disc brake rim with quick releases. What do I need to consider other than the size of the wheel when choosing a replacement? I'll likely migrate over the cassette and rotor (if need be). My knowledge of rims is limited so any help is appreciated!

Here is my bike: https://www.bikes.com/en/bikes/whistler/2015 (Must select Whistler 70 when on the site)

Thanks all!

That's a "semi standard" disc wheel for 135mm spacing & 8-10 speeds.
10mm axle.

Probably want to omit "10mm axle" from your description. That's a standard QR hub. Nothing special.

I probably don't with all the various "through axles" etc.
Why would I?

Right, so mention axle diameter but not the actual type of axle. This gets even better

You have contributed nothing but some ankle biting.
Pay attention. What didn't you understand about-
That's a "semi standard" disc wheel for 135mm spacing & 8-10 speeds.
Ignore list for you......because you deserve it.
