Webair, a managed hosting provider delivering managed cloud and colocation solutions, has completed the build of its new Meet-Me Room (MMR) and corresponding network fabric platform in its NY1 New York data center. The MMR would enable Webair to enhance its direct connectivity to carrier hotels, cloud providers, and global Internet exchanges, in addition to an “expansive” suite of fully managed infrastructure solutions deployed on-premises.
Webair’s advanced interconnection fabric would enable NY1 data center customers to directly connect their hosted infrastructure to leading public clouds, global Internet exchanges and interconnection fabrics such as Console and Megaport, providing them with endless connectivity options.
NY1’s MMR and network fabric also extends into the New York metro area’s largest Points of Presence (PoPs), including 60 Hudson Street, 325 Hudson Street, 111 8th Ave., and 32 Avenue of the Americas, allowing customers to directly connect to any third-party network at those locations.
The launch of Webair’s new MMR and corresponding network fabric platform stems from the company’s beliefs that the future of its customers’ businesses is reliant on “fast, secured, automated and low-latency” connectivity to their partners and customers.
Through these physical and virtual cross-connects available in Webair’s NY1 data center, customers can also access an expansive suite of fully managed infrastructure solutions that are installed and managed on-site, and can be leveraged at a moment’s notice. These include Webair’s enterprise Public and Private Clouds, Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS), Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS), Managed Firewalls, Load Balancing-as-a-Service, and Enhanced IP Transit with built-in DDoS monitoring and mitigation.
“NY1’s next-generation physical Meet-Me Room and network fabric are purpose-built to evolve with the ever-changing market,” said Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Webair. “Today, that means having the ability to fully adopt automated SDN capabilities.This empowers our customers with the flexibility to efficiently move data over paths that make the most sense for their businesses, regardless if it is a physical cross-connect at a popular PoP, a virtual cross-connect over an interconnection fabric, or direct MPLS tie-in back to their on-premises network.”
