Advances inInfrastructure, Backend Technologies and Integration Yield Improved Performance, Faster Content Delivery and Application Acceleration
NEW YORK, Aug. 26, 2014 – Webair, a leading provider of Cloud Hosting and Managed solutions enhances its advanced Content Delivery Network (CDN) through expanded infrastructure, developments in backend technologies and faster integration capabilities. This improvement streamlines the company’s capabilities to deliver content and accelerates applications to ensure the best end-user experience and optimal scalability, satisfying today’s growing demand for high-quality content at lightning-fast speeds.
Since the initial launch of its CDN services in 2008, Webair has substantially expanded the capacity of its network, adding global cloud servers strategically located in data centers throughout the world, including Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Montreal, and its flagship facility in Long Island, NY. Through this expansion, Webair’s CDN is able to instantly replicate customers’ content on servers closest to their audience, resulting in global availability of data for broadband and mobile audiences reducing jitter and delivering high-quality streaming within a maximum 300ms radius.
Significant investments in Webair’s infrastructure and backend technologies have yielded improvements in reducing hops, lowering latency, mitigating cache misses and protecting against advanced DDoS attacks. Backed by the company’s 24x7x365 expert support, 100% network uptime SLA and a global, multi-homed and interconnected network, Webair’s CDN is fully redundant, capable of handling massive traffic spikes of up to 300,000 concurrent users.
“In today’s content-driven world, a high-performance CDN is critical to business success. Reliable web presence and content delivery can have a profound and direct impact on customer engagement, satisfaction and loyalty, and therefore, revenue loss or growth,” remarks Gerard Hiner, Business Development Manager, Webair. “Webair’s global expansion and service enhancements enable audiences to receive a high-quality end-user experience, whether they are watching video, playing games, shopping online or sharing content.”
Webair’s enhancements have also reduced CDN integration time to minutes. Webair customers are now able to add, administer and analyze the performance of their CDN leveraging Webair’s EZPanel. The control panel provides customers with a single pane of glass view across their CDN environment as well as an easy to use interface and the tools and support required for seamless set-up and management of content and features. EZPanel also includes an advanced analytics and reporting feature, enabling businesses with access to performance and utilization graphs as well as reporting. A fully managed solution, CDN can be directly integrated into customers’ Cloud Services and Load Balanced Clusters quickly via EZPanel, with no hardware upgrades or configuration modifications required for seamless enablement.
“Webair’s CDN allows for greater global performance, security, control and load balancing of traffic, whether it is crossing a street or an ocean,” adds Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer, Webair. “Our goal is to provide customers access to a scalable, redundant global CDN as well as an expansive ecosystem of proven products and services to ensure a complete hosting solution – all delivered with the simplicity of a single provider.”
