Acceptance Into New York’s Empire State Development Program and Hydropower Allocation Drive Critical Infrastructure Upgrades at Webair’s NY1 Facility

NEW YORK, NY – Nov. 28, 2017 — / — Webair, a high-touch, agile Cloud and fully managed infrastructure service provider, today announces plans to create new jobs and invest $20 million in cloud and critical infrastructure upgrades at its NY1 data center on Long Island over the next four years. The investments are driven by the Company’s recent acceptance into the New York Empire State Development (ESD) program and an allocation of 1 MW of low-cost hydropower from New York Power Authority’s (NYPA’s) ReCharge NY program, as well growing customer demand for low latency compliance cloud and managed hybrid infrastructure.

“As an owner-operated New York-based company, Webair has made considerable investments in personnel and infrastructure at our NY1 facility to continue supporting our customers for the next 20 years and beyond,” says Michael Christopher Orza, CEO of Webair. “Our services are relied upon by many New York State-owned organizations. As a result, the State has provided Webair with tax rebates and other incentives to ensure low energy costs and the additional resources we need to grow our ecosystem of private, air-gapped Cloud services and address mounting customer demand for managed infrastructure.”

Leveraging job creation and investment incentives provided by ReCharge New York and the Empire State Development Program, Webair is making substantial Cloud, Disaster Recovery, and data center upgrades at its NY1 facility, spurring demand for additional high-caliber staff. These include recently completed and in-progress upgrades, such as the:

  • Installation of a third generator, additional UPS and HVAC capacity to support an additional 1 MW of critical IT load;
  • Installation of an additional 200 high-density cabinets and corresponding containment and DCIM systems;
  • Expansion of Webair’s carrier-neutral Meet-Me Room, including the physical presence of next-generation interconnection fabrics such as PacketFabric and MegaPort, as well as additional Tier 1 networks; and
  • Availability of its Disaster and Ransomware Recovery, as well as Off-site Backup platform delivered privately within the facility, securely replicating customer data to Webair’s global facilities or hyperscale clouds in real time.

Built to Tier III standards and meeting the most stringent compliance requirements, Webair’s NY1 is the most redundant data center east of Manhattan. The facility houses an ecosystem of managed infrastructure, including Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Storage, Colocation, and more.
