Gartner Lists Webair as a Notable Vendor in its Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service

We are proud to be listed as a Notable Vendor in Gartner’s June 2017 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service. Now considered a mainstream offering, Gartner estimates the Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) market to reach $3.73 billion by 2021. Rising customer expectations, the need for more granular recovery of workloads, and mounting cybersecurity threats such as Ransomware are driving increased demand for DRaaS, and selecting a vendor whose offering goes well beyond standard Virtual Machine (VM) replication is key to a successful solution.

Disaster Recovery is not just about replicating data to another location; it’s about ensuring that the applications at the recovery site are as consumable to users as they were at the production site without any changes. To achieve this, Webair’s Disaster Recovery solution is pre-planned, pre-configured and customized per deployment in advance.

At Webair, we offer multiple tiers of service to accommodate varying use cases and provide end-to-end coverage of applications and devices:

  • Webair Backups-as-a-Service
  • Webair Backups-as-a-Service to Azure
  • Webair Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service
  • Webair Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service to Azure
  • Webair Ransomware Recovery-as-a-Service

Because we own our data center and managed infrastructure, Webair offers one point of accountability and security for our DR customers.  With Webair, enterprises are also able to recover a single affected application or VMs, not only the entire site, in a simple, automated and managed, and secure manner.

The only way to know if a DR solution is effective is to test it on a regular basis. We help customers shift testing accountability from the IT department to the application owners through our portal and managed services.  We also conduct fully managed quarterly testing and provide our customers with detailed performance reports.

Our DRaaS strategy is unique for every client. It leverages our Tier III data centers, fiber networks and truly hybrid cloud infrastructure to match any organization’s complex internal infrastructure.  Our recovery sites are located in New York, Los Angeles, Montréal, Amsterdam and Hong Kong as well as Microsoft Azure data centers to provide a global solution based upon customers’ specific needs. We also provide DR support for multiple platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, IBM Power i, physical servers and hyperscale cloud.

And because our DRaaS customers often require additional managed services at their DR sites, we offer managed services at our data centers that can be tied directly into their DRaaS infrastructure via private and secure cross-connects. These include Colocation, Public and Private Cloud, Bare Metal Servers, Managed Security, Storage-as- a-Service, and more.

Let Webair bring a sense of confidence to you and a human touch to your Disaster Recovery solution.  Contact us today.
