Webair’s enterprise-grade Private Cloud is fully managed and custom-built, offering customers an affordable and agile solution to address business-specific IT security, scalability and performance needs. Webair is unique amongst Telx Cloud Xchange partners as it takes full ownership and responsibility of customers’ infrastructure stacks, managing all aspects of virtualization, scalability, security, load balancing, and more so they can focus on their core business.

In addition to high-performance computing, scalability, security and a full range of Disaster Recovery options, Webair’s Private Cloud enables customers to interconnect Private Cloud environments with Bare Metal and Public Cloud instances to take advantage of Hybrid Cloud capabilities. Private Cloud users can also access multiple SAN options, obtain dedicated connections to redundant Cloud Storage and scale from on-premise Clouds via VMware vCloud® Connector™. Moreover, Telx’s healthcare customers benefit from Webair Private Cloud’s HIPAA-HITECH compliance.
“Telx Cloud Xchange allows Webair to expand their service offering while providing our customers with dedicated access to premium Cloud solutions,” adds John Freimuth, General Manager of Cloud and IT Services at Telx. “Webair’s carrier-neutrality and commitment to ensuring maximum uptime, low latency and high performance of customer environments complements Telx’s enterprise-grade, high availability infrastructure.
