Webair Has Been Named a Notable DRaaS Vendor Two Years in a Row

NEW YORK, July 25, 2018Webair, a high-touch, agile Cloud and fully managed infrastructure service provider, today announces that it has been named as a Notable Vendor in Gartner’s July 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service.” This is the second year in a row that Webair has been recognized in this report.

According to Gartner’s report, “The Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service market consists of hundreds of providers, all with different approaches and capabilities.  This creates immense complexity around vendor selection.  Infrastructure and operations leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to help evaluate providers of DRaaS.”*

“As a growing number of enterprises employ hybrid IT strategies, Webair’s Business Continuity services have evolved beyond simple DRaaS to cover all elements of complex IT environments.  This includes a strong focus on IT resilience across all physical infrastructure, cloud platforms, SaaS integration, and network configurations,” comments Michael C. Orza, President and CEO of Webair.  “We’re proud to once again be included in Gartner’s list of Notable Vendors in its July 2018 ‘Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service,’ as this demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with world-class Disaster Recovery solutions.”

DRaaS offerings are part of Webair’s larger IT Resilience Assurance Services, which include management of the design, implementation and ongoing maintenance of the comprehensive DR solution, while providing attestation of successful recovery testing.  Webair’s full suite of IT Resilience Assurance Services include three tiers of disaster recovery as well as offsite backups, allowing organizations to match specific applications to the most appropriate and cost-effective platform.
