GARDEN CITY, NY, June 25, 2019 – Webair, a leading Managed Cloud-based Infrastructure Solutions provider, announced it has been named a Notable Vendor in Gartner’s June 2019 Magic Quadrant Report for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) for the third consecutive year. Also, as of June 13, 2019, Webair maintains a perfect Overall Rating of 5.0 in the DRaaS market based on 8 ratings within Gartner Peer Insights. *
We believe that Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service Report is a respected resource which industry leaders utilize to help them assess the vast array of DRaaS providers in the market. “The disaster-recovery-as-a-service market consists of hundreds of providers, all with different approaches and capabilities,” the Gartner Report states. “This diversity creates immense complexity around vendor selection. Infrastructure and operations leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to help evaluate providers of DRaaS.” **
“As enterprise organizations are forced to constantly adapt to the ever-changing requirements of IT security, compliance, and hybrid cloud, we are seeing that more and more are deciding to shift accountability, ownership, and management of their complex Disaster Recovery needs to us,” stated President and CEO of Webair, Michael C. Orza. “By embracing each customer’s unique networking and security requirements, along with providing support for both legacy platforms and new digital transformation initiatives, we believe that Webair is able to handle DRaaS needs across complex landscapes.”
“We’re quite proud to be included as a Notable Vendor in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service Report, for the third consecutive year,” Orza added. “And, we believe that this inclusion demonstrates that shifting accountability for critical and complex infrastructure does not have to come at the cost of service and support, it’s rather the opposite.”
We believe that Webair’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service offerings are designed with flexibility and customization in mind to meet the needs of modern enterprises. This is inclusive of integration with customers’ existing authentication, security, and network strategies, along with multi-platform support including VMware, HyperV, physical servers, IBM Power systems, public clouds, and SaaS. We feel that Webair ensures its DRaaS services adhere to customers’ compliance and data-sovereignty requirements such as HIPAA, FISMA, and GDPR, ensuring an IT resilience plan which will evolve as technology and regulations change.
With pre-planned, and fully-managed failover and failback, we have found that users can achieve Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) as low as 15 minutes, and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) as low as one hour. By offering multiple tiers of DRaaS, customers can customize the service on a per-application basis, ensuring the most appropriate and cost-effective strategy per use-case.
