Introducing ProtoCloud IaaS by Webair

NEW YORK, NY, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Webair, a leading provider of Cloud Hosting and Managed solutions, announced ProtoCloud, the newest addition to its highly popular family of cloud hosting services.

Built with scalability and availability in mind, ProtoCloud provides IaaS scalability on top of a highly available foundation. By default, and at no additional costs, ProtoCloud instances are provisioned with no single points of failure via the use of redundant & scalable computing nodes, Network infrastructure, SAN and FusionIO storage.

ProtoCloud comes with an easy to use management interface and integrates with a number of Webair’s existing service offerings including Cloud Storage, Carrier Neutral Cloud, FusionCloud, CDN services, and dedicated servers. Webair clients can interconnect ProtoCloud instances with other dedicated or virtual servers via secure internal networks to form true hybrid solutions. A RESTful API makes it convenient for customers to integrate ProtoCloud into their applications, requiring minimal administration and management.

“We’ve added ProtoCloud to our portfolio of Cloud services to provide our clients with true highly available IaaS out of the box without the complexity or the guess work it takes to build it themselves.

Customers can sign up for ProtoCloud with the click of a button and easily add additional services such as CDN, dedicated servers and FusionCloud to their account from within EZPanel.  ”Our customers can conveniently manage all their hosting resources from EZPanel’s friendly interface. Likewise, resource allocations and bandwidth can be aggregated between services and shown on the same bill. This empowers our clients with a true end-to-end solution that allows them to match use cases to the most appropriate solutions, and all under a fully managed umbrella of our ServerGenius support,” said Sagi Brody, CTO of Webair.

NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Webair, a global leader in cloud hosting and managed services, announced today the successful completion of control procedures and compliance for its NY1 data center as verified in a Service Organization Control Report (SOC 1) prepared under the terms of SSAE 16 by independent auditing firm BrightLine CPAs & Associates, Inc.

-  Physical Security
- Operations and customer service
- Development and information technology organization
- Risk assessment monitoring

The controls addressed in SSAE 16 are those that a service organization implements to prevent, or detect and correct, errors or omissions in the information it provides to user entities. SSAE 16 report assures potential and existing clients that Webair’s policies and procedures are sound and that critical Internet services and data are secure. Webair customers can request a copy of the report, which should make it easier for them to pass their own SSAE 16 audit.

“We want these results to be accessible to all of our clients to not only show them our dedication to their success, but also, our commitment to providing the security and safety that their business deserves,” added Mr. Rugolsky.

Located in Garden City, NY, Webair’s flagship data center known as NY1 is the most secure and redundant facility east of New York City.  Strategically located 25 miles outside Manhattan, NY1 boasts the lowest network latency to Europe via direct feeds to Transatlantic fiber.

Undeniable Benefits of Webair’s FusionCloud Technology:


In the world of cloud servers, speed and reliability are everything.

Unfortunately, today’s industry standard is to provide clients with no more than 100 IOP/s or Input/Output Operations Per Second. For those that aren’t aware, IOP/s are a common performance measurement typically used to benchmark large and small data transfers. The problem with this minimal performance is that it isn’t suitable for resource intensive applications like database servers, video encoding, or even industrial content delivery. Enter Webair FusionCloud, providing the fastest disk speeds available in the Cloud – PERIOD.

Every one of our FusionCloud servers is set up to not only meet, but exceed any previous expectation. Our FusionCloud servers are equipped to deliver a Fusion-io volume guaranteed to deliver 10,000 IOP/s. Consequently, our FusionCloud servers are 100 times faster than other cloud providers and even most powerful “physical” servers!


Additional Benefits of Webair FusionCloud Technology

A major benefit of Webair FusionCloud Servers is High Availability. With our cloud computing infrastructure each business subscribed harnesses the fault tolerance of enterprise grade hypervisors (or virtual machine managers) to keep the cloud servers up and running without downtime!

With Webair FusionCloud we can guarantee users will achieve 10,000 IOP/s speeds through provisioning slices between the physical Fusion-io cards. This provides our clients with the smoothest and most reliable experience available. Webair FusionCloud servers are compatible with Linux, Windows, and BSD operating systems and available as either Managed or Self managed plans.


Perfect for Your Resource Intensive Applications:

  • Large Database Servers: No need to setup complex multi-server database cluster. Scale up to 8 CPUs, 144GB of ram, and 10K IOP/s. Perfect for database servers.
  • Video Encoding: Simultaneously encode multiple videos without reaching disk limitations.
  • Big Data Analytics: Seek and read data faster and keep your data in the cloud.
  • Web Servers: Never worry about spikes in traffic again. Perfect for custom CDN nodes.

  • When a business is considering any change to its infrastructure they need to have the added benefit of working with someone in a live capacity.
