Webair has announced the addition of CloudPOD to its expansive hosting services portfolio. CloudPOD is a new range of all-in-one cloud packages from OnApp, which combine OnApp cloud management software with best-of-breed hardware, hosting and connectivity to simplify and accelerate cloud deployment. Webair’s new CloudPOD packages enable service providers to deploy their own OnApp clouds, running on pre-configured enterprise-class hardware from Dell, in Webair’s high-performance, enterprise-grade network and compute infrastructure. The new Webair CloudPOD packages provide customers with a comprehensive solution for simple, accelerated deployment and hosting of starter, mid-sized and large clouds.

With a Webair CloudPOD, enterprise and service provider customers can deploy pre-configured clouds in New York, Los Angeles, Montreal and Amsterdam data centers, backed by Webair’s 100% network uptime SLA.  These carrier-neutral facilities offer direct connectivity to thousands of transit and transport providers via private and secure cross-connects. Customers can quickly and seamlessly deploy their CloudPOD solution, benefitting from Webair’s Hybrid Cloud capabilities, which combine the security of dedicated physical infrastructure with the scalability and cost-effectiveness of a public cloud.

Webair CloudPOD users are able to easily and mix and match their solution with Webair’s expansive portfolio of value-added services such as Physical Dedicated Servers, iSCSI SAN Storage, DRaaS, and more. Customers also benefit from a simple, pay-as-you-go pricing model, easily accessible, on-site hardware assets, fully managed cloud infrastructure and 24x7x365 support. Furthermore, as an OnApp-based Cloud Hosting provider, Webair and its world-class, in-house technical team maintain in-depth OnApp hardware knowledge and expertise ensuring reliable, consistent performance and uptime of customer cloud environments.

“Working with OnApp, Webair is making it easier and quicker than ever for customers to reap the benefits of the cloud by removing entry barriers to standing up a private cloud environment,” says Michael Christopher Orza, CEO of Webair. “Webair eliminates the need for customers to invest in costly hardware, network solutions, DDoS protection, backups, and more. CloudPOD users leverage our world-class infrastructure and support to get their clouds deployed and operating at maximum performance quickly, reliably and cost-effectively.” 

“CloudPOD is all about removing barriers to cloud deployment by simplifying the hardware choices and hosting decisions that can impact time-to-production, time-to-market and time-to-revenue,” remarks Kosten Metreweli, Chief Commercial Officer, OnApp. “Webair has extensive experience hosting XEN and KVM clouds, and with its focus on infrastructure quality and customer service, is a great choice for any company looking for a fast, proven way to stand up a new public or private cloud.”
