IBM Power Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Your production environment is complex, so why choose a cookie-cutter Disaster Recovery solution? To be successful, the IBM DRaaS solution must mirror production as much as possible with the least barriers to entry. Webair’s nimbleness and ability to customize solutions using its various infrastructure components to match customer environments provides a one-of-a-kind IBM Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution.


Support for a variety of software platforms for monitoring and replication, including MIMIX, iTera for IBM and Zerto and Veeam for x86.

Global Presence

Webair IBM DRaaS solutions are backed by its global network of Tier III, SSAE 16 and HIPAA-compliant data centers in New York, Los Angeles, Montréal and Amsterdam. Webair provides replication services in these data centers as well as partner facilities.

Direct Connectivity

Webair has over 400+ carriers available on-net at its locations and regularly provides direct connectivity to customers’ existing networks (MPLS, Metro Ethernet, and Private Line) as part of its IBM DRaaS solution. This allows the DRaaS environment to be available via same Internal IPs to customers’ existing networks.


In addition to providing DRaaS for IBM Power platforms (iSeries, AS400, AIX), Webair also provides full DRaaS for VMware, HyperV, and physical x86 servers as well. All platforms are available via the same local LAN to match their production setup.

Network Customization

Webair typically deploys a standardized virtual firewall and routing appliance at customers’ production environments to facilitative network connectivity, seeding, and more. This allows it to customize interconnects based on each customer’s existing networks. Oftentimes, customers’ networks are not cleanly aligned with VPGs. Webair’s platform is purpose-built to overcome these challenges, ensuring fast DRaaS set-up without the need for customers to make any network changes. This includes the ability for Webair to manage L2 stretch, double-NATing and other network configurations.
