PacketFabric Deploys SDN Node at Webair’s NY1 Data Center, Facilitating Access to Webair Services and Making Its Platform Available to Local Tenants
NEW YORK, August 22, 2017 – Webair, a high-touch, agile Cloud and fully managed infrastructure service provider, and PacketFabric, the highly scalable network-as-a-service platform and a member of the NantWorks ecosystem of companies, today announce the availability of Webair’s Ransomware Recovery-as-a-Service (RRaaS) and Compliance Cloud solutions across all 130-plus nodes throughout PacketFabric’s SDN-based network. Leveraging PacketFabric’s extensive any-to-any mesh across North America, Webair customers can benefit from automatic application failover during a disaster or Ransomware attack, allowing for business continuity and uninterrupted service. PacketFabric has also deployed its SDN node at Webair’s NY1 data center, making its platform accessible to local tenants.
Through this new offering, Webair now provides automated increases in bandwidth and connectivity upon detection of failover events. Its customers can choose to replicate their data and applications at any one of Webair’s international locations, including New York, Los Angeles, Montréal, and Amsterdam. With pre-planned, automated failover and failback between production and recovery sites, users can achieve synchronous Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) of seconds.
“Effective Ransomware and disaster recovery solutions are less about data replication and more about network agility and automation so that failover is seamless, requiring little to no manual intervention,” explains Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer, Webair. “As the threat of cyberattacks continues to grow, we are very excited to partner with PacketFabric to extend our recovery services nationwide, bringing peace of mind to enterprises across North America by leveraging private and secure interconnections.”
PacketFabric’s mission is to simplify and automate all aspects of network service consumption, and deliver highly scalable connectivity at a lower cost with greater flexibility. The PacketFabric platform fundamentally reshapes the way customers employ connectivity by combining an innovative any-to-any mesh architecture with an advanced API and intuitive web-based portal.
“As one of the most secure and redundant data centers east of Manhattan with expansive managed services offerings, Webair’s NY1 facility was a strategic location to further expand the PacketFabric network,” says William Charnock, CEO, PacketFabric. “We are excited to partner with Webair and extend their reach across North America through our platform, as well as enabling effective recovery solutions in the PacketFabric ecosystem through access to Webair’s RRaaS and Compliance Cloud services.”
Reinforcing Webair’s position as an industry-leading Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) provider, the company was recently listed as a Notable Vendor in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service. Webair takes full ownership and responsibility of customer implementations, including physical infrastructure deployments, network connectivity and recovery capabilities, functioning as a high-touch technology partner.
