PacketFabric Provides Added Flexibility for Off-site Backups and Disaster Recovery.
Webair offers a complete portfolio of fully managed services, including off-site backups, disaster recovery-as-a-service, managed security, cloud storage, and more. In addition to its own facilities, Webair also offers AWS as a target for offsite backups and disaster recovery. Many of Webair’s clients have intensive security and compliance requirements, and Webair needed to expand its options for sending traffic to AWS over a secure network.
PacketFabric proposed establishing a direct, secure connection to AWS at Webair’s data centers on the east and west coast of the US using PacketCOR, its cloud on-ramp product. This would allow Webair to connect to AWS via PacketFabric, for customer use cases in which AWS was the most appropriate solution.
- Using PacketFabric to connect to AWS provides added flexibility for Webair’s customer base
- Being able to offer multi-cloud management to customers who have production workloads in AWS has increased Webair’s competitive advantage
- PacketFabric gives Webair instant access to expanded infrastructure without the need to build or manage it themselves

“Being able to dynamically provision and ramp up capacity to Disaster-Recovery targets such as AWS allows Webair to provide better IT resilience orchestration for its customers,” said Sagi Brody, CTO at Webair. “Utilizing PacketFabric’s network from Webair’s own physical data centers allows Webair to maintain ownership and accountability for its customers, from production to AWS.”
