Webair provides a dedicated cloud hosting environment as many others do, but with a critical twist: we offer a fully managed dedicated cloud hosting services that are aimed at individuals who want to reduce or eliminate their time in dealing with infrastructure issues, ensure their applications are running optimally, and avoid increasing headcount in IT to manage it all.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) use unit pricing for
So, why choose Webair over AWS?
Management: It’s All On Us vs. It’s All On You
As an AWS customer, you are completely responsible for managing your own cloud environment. The entire cloud stack–from OS to application management, to load balancing, firewall, and server patches–is all on you, as AWS does not offer management and monitoring. Need to reconfigure virtual machines (VMs)? With AWS, it’s your problem, and managing a large number of VMs can become an operational burden very quickly. Need help with a GHOST patch? You’re on your own. Need to tune rules for your security stance? Need to adjust load balancing for specific events that generate different traffic loads or for general operations? With AWS, the burden falls on you.
Who sets up the monitoring, alerts, and traps? If not done properly, you may be missing specific aspects of the environment. Servers down? Disks full? VMs not spawning? If you’re not monitoring them properly, you can’t see it. If you can’t see it, you can’t fix it. When the monitoring alarms go off at 3 AM, who is receiving the alarms and how are they responding?
To help eliminate these operational headaches, Webair provides a managed services environment for the entire cloud stack, staffed 24x7x365 by engineers who understand your business and the infrastructure that’s required, and acts as a true technology partner so that you can focus on what’s most important: your core business. We do it all, from reconfiguring VMs, to resolving system vulnerabilities, to load balancing of complex clusters and more.
What happens when servers are overloaded? Amazon gives you the tools to scale, but they don’t do it for you. Webair offers a range of services that allow maximum flexibility in scaling, operating and managing your infrastructure. We offer Bare Metal Servers, Colocation, Content Delivery Network (CDN), Load Balancing, and Hybrid Cloud services to our customers to facilitate their IT expansion needs ahead of the business. Don’t let your growth be hindered by your cloud provider.
Content Deliver Networks (CDNs)
Webair also offers a managed service for CDNs that can be integrated with your applications to ensure optimized distribution of your content. CDN is as much a capacity and scalability play as a speed play, and Webair can quickly redirect a company’s traffic. AWS is still do-it-yourself. When content needs to be redirected, load balancers adjusted, and networks optimized, Webair’s managed service experts perform all these activities to give you the necessary performance and results. With AWS, your own staff would have to take the time to code and integrate all of their applications – can they do it fast enough and properly? When they hit a wall – can they go and call somebody at AWS
Enhanced Cloud Capabilities
While AWS is solely a public cloud, Webair offers the flexibility and cost of a Public Cloud, and the performance, scalability, and security of a Private Cloud. Organizations can start with Webair’s Public Cloud and then migrate to a Private Cloud; or, they can choose a Hybrid Cloud service that’ll give them the best of both worlds in a single fully managed solution. Additionally, there are cases where applications need to be on core physical boxes; that’s where Webair’s Colocation services come in. It’s an ecosystem that easily changes as the business changes, and Webair can provide various flavors of the Cloud.
