Tech Data has made Webair Off-site Backups and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions accessible to channel partners worldwide through its StreamOne Enterprise Solutions cloud marketplace.
Webair, a company providing public, private and hybrid cloud, cloud storage, bare metal servers, colocation, CDN, and disaster recovery, provides multiple tiers of Disaster Recovery (DR) services with instant recovery from Ransomware as well as human, infrastructure and application failures via its global network of recovery sites.
These DR services include Webair Backups-as-a-Service (BaaS); Backups-as-a-Service to Azure; Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service; Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service to Azure; and Ransomware Recovery-as-a-Service (RRaaS). Supported platforms include VMware, Hyper-V, Physical servers and IBM Power i. The company was also recently listed as a Notable Vendor in Gartner’s June 2017 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service.
“Webair is excited to partner with Tech Data to provide value-added resellers, independent software vendors, managed service providers and system integrators in their cloud marketplace with easy access to our Off-site Backups and DRaaS solutions,” said Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Webair. “As a high-touch, long-term partner, Webair lends customers and partners the confidence that it can adapt solutions to suit their evolving IT and production environments, while taking complete ownership and accountability of their disaster recovery strategy.”
With Webair’s DRaaS and RRaaS solutions, 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 “15-minute” Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and “one-hour” Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs). Additionally, Webair’s BaaS offering provides an optional capability allowing customers to spin-up backups for disaster recovery purposes on-demand.
“The rising cost of downtime and growing threat of cyber-attacks showcase the vulnerability of today’s enterprises as well as their need for comprehensive and reliable Disaster Recovery solutions,” said Michael Urban, Corporate Vice President, Strategy, Transformation, and Global Vendor Management, Tech Data – who is also responsible for the company’s global cloud strategy. “The addition of Webair‘s DRaaS and Ransomware Recovery services to the StreamOne Enterprise Solutions cloud marketplace provides our resellers the opportunity to offer customers a renewed sense of confidence through DR solutions that encompass not only virtual machine replication, but also the entire production environment and network.”
