(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Webair, a leading provider of Cloud Hosting, Colocation and Managed solutions, today announces that it ranks among the world’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), according to Penton’s fifth-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. The Top 100 CSPs generated more than $30 billion in combined cloud services revenues in 2014, up nearly 29 percent over what they reported the previous year. The full report is available now by visiting http://www.talkincloud.com/tc100.
Utilizing its global network of privately-owned Tier 3 facilities in New York, Los Angeles, Montreal and Amsterdam, regional fiber networks, and enterprise cloud infrastructure, Webair provides customized Hybrid Cloud services to large enterprise and healthcare providers who require more than cookie-cutter, off-the-shelf cloud solutions. Webair’s Cloud solution is unique in that it is fully managed, enabling customers to repurpose high-value IT resources to focus on their core business. Webair takes full ownership and responsibility of customers’ infrastructure stacks, managing all aspects of virtualization, scalability, security, load balancing, and more. Cloud customers can also take advantage of Webair’s Cloud-based Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS).
“We are honored to be recognized among the top 100 cloud service providers in the world by the Talkin’ Cloud 100 report,” says Michael C. Orza, President and CEO of Webair. “With the rapid growth of cloud services, the Webair team works tirelessly to stay at the forefront of this evolution, offering cutting-edge, customized and fully managed solutions for any business model. We look forward to continuing on this path of innovation as we enhance our Cloud platform through strategic partnerships and growth opportunities in the future.”
The Talkin’ Cloud 100 list is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through May 2015. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 list recognizes top cloud service providers based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates), and input from Penton Technology’s Channel editors.
“On behalf of Penton and Talkin’ Cloud, I would like to congratulate Webair for its recognition as a Talkin’ Cloud 100 honoree,” adds Nicole Henderson, Editor in Chief, Talkin’ Cloud. “The industry is changing at a rapid pace and the Talkin’ Cloud 100 companies consistently demonstrate an agility and flexibility that sets them apart. They do so with innovation, via strategic partnerships, and through their commitment to providing superior customer experiences.”
