Webair's PRIVATE CLOUD SERVICES provide the ability to combine the rapid scalability and self-service functionality of a Public Cloud, with the power and reliability of dedicated resources. This results in a highly customizable and powerful solution which can be built to meet the exact resource, redundancy, and scalability requirements of an enterprise IT department. Webair is able to build Private Clouds with any level of local or global high availability, as well as provide clients with the option to failover to a Public Cloud to reduce costs and overhead.
Webair Private Clouds can co-exist with clients' physical infrastructure via the use of Webair Hybrid Cloud, which bridges physical and virtual infrastructure into one enviornment. Private Clouds can also be used as failover for physical infrastructure on or off Webair's network, or to facilitiate disaster recovery.

What is a Webair Managed Private Cloud?
A Webair managed private cloud is a computing cloud enviornment, fully managed by Webair for use by a single client, similar to a Webair managed dedicated server. Webair manages all redundant data center and networking infrastructure, deploys server hardware, cloud management tools and (virtual) server software stacks, and also monitors and manages the cloud and virtual servers. Clients can configure and use cloud server applications, and provide content and customer service.
Unlike a public cloud where many different users share resources, a Webair managed private cloud is dedicated to a single user, and replaces the corporate data center. The Webair managed private cloud eliminates the headaches associated with running a data center, managing hypervisors, supporting virtualization, and the provisioning and maintenance of virtual servers. It lets users focus on the applications that run the business. Private clouds provide secure environment and superior infrastructure at lower costs and with minimal capital expenses, equally attractive to start-ups and medium size enterprises.
