Webair Awarded NYS OGS Contract

Webair,
a high-touch, agile Cloud
and fully managed
infrastructure service provider, today announces that it has been
awarded an Information Technology Umbrella Manufacturer Based contract
by the New
York State Office of General Services (NYS OGS). This contract
certifies that Webair is a vetted and state-approved IT vendor and
simplifies services procurement for New York State authorized users by
significantly reducing the length of the bidding processes.

To earn this contract, Webair completed a year-long company audit
verifying its ability to provide high-quality services compliant with
state regulations. As a result, New York State authorized users can take
advantage of this existing contract to expedite the procurement process
of verified services. Webair channel partners now also have the
opportunity to resell Webair services to NYS authorized users leveraging
the OGS umbrella contract. For partners with customers and prospects
that include New York State, Local and Education (SLED) government
agencies, the availability of this new contract fast-tracks service
delivery and enhances partners’ ability to provide fast and
cost-effective solutions from Webair’s vast portfolio of infrastructure
and service offerings.

“As a privately-owned, New York-based organization, Webair is
continually seeking new opportunities to enhance our community’s IT
landscape with fully-managed infrastructure services delivered
privately, ensuring the lowest possible latency and sovereignty for all
state-funded organizations,” explains Michael Christopher Orza, CEO,
Webair. “Through this OGS contract, we are providing these government
agencies and organizations with the ability to support digital
transformation via customized and flexible hybrid cloud configurations,
including the ability to house data locally and securely, untethered
from the public internet, and eliminating the need to store sensitive
information hundreds, or even thousands of miles away. We are excited to
offer state-funded organizations an even simpler way to procure a wide
range of services and look forward to working hand-in-hand with our
channel partners to ensure customer satisfaction.”

Webair currently serves multiple state-funded organizations, including
hospitals, universities and cultural centers. Prior to being awarded
this Umbrella Manufacturer contract, Webair received multiple tax
rebates and other incentives from the New York government to help ensure
low energy costs for customers. Most notably, in 2017, Webair announced
its acceptance into the New York Empire
State Development (ESD) program as well as the receipt of an
allocated 1 MW of low-cost hydropower from New York Power Authority’s
(NYPA’s) ReCharge
NY program.

Webair’s full portfolio of services will be available via OGS contract,
including public, private and hybrid cloud hosting and managed services,
colocation, Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Offsite
Backups-as-a-Service (BaaS), and full-stack management of critical
applications. Offering direct access to its own private clouds as well
as all large public clouds including AWS and Azure, Webair provides
comprehensive, fully-managed hybrid cloud orchestration. This allows
customers to mix and match the optimal cloud platforms on a per workload
basis based on such factors as security, performance, latency and cost,
while providing end-to-end service assurance to end-users. In addition
to its New York data center on Long Island, Webair maintains facilities
in Los Angeles, Montréal, Amsterdam, and the Asia-Pacific.
