Webair Launches ProtoCloud IaaS Platform

By Erin Harrison

Cloud hosting company Webair has rolled out its latest Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform, ProtoCloud.

ProtoCloud is designed to provide IaaS scalability on top of a highly available foundation that provides clients with IaaS out of the box, without the complexity or the guesswork it takes to build it themselves, according to Gerard Hiner, executive sales manager at Webair.

“The ability for clients to integrate ProtoCloud with various other cloud hosting and traditional hosting services means highly customized and hybrid environments can be built to match even the most demanding needs,” Hiner said in a statement.

ProtoCloud instances are provisioned with no single points of failure through the use of redundant and scalable computing nodes, network infrastructure, SAN and FusionIO storage – by default, and at no additional costs, Hiner said.

Webair clients can interconnect ProtoCloud instances with other dedicated or virtual servers through secure internal networks to form hybrid solutions. In addition, ProtoCloud’s on-demand provisioning and utility billing models are designed to provide customers with an easy way to utilize the infrastructure for requirements such as big data analytics, NoSQL database workloads, load balanced Web hosting, and application testing/development.

ProtoCloud integrates with a number of Webair’s existing services, including cloud storage, carrier neutral cloud, FusionCloud, CDN services and dedicated servers.

For example, ProtoCloud integrates seamlessly with EZPanel, Webair’s control panel, allowing customers to sign up for ProtoCloud with the click of a button, and add additional services such as CDN, dedicated servers and FusionCloud to their account from within EZPanel.  

“Our customers can conveniently manage all their hosting resources from EZPanel’s friendly interface. Likewise, resource allocations and bandwidth can be aggregated between services and shown on the same bill. This empowers our clients with a true end-to-end solution that allows them to match use cases to the most appropriate solutions, and all under a fully managed umbrella of our ServerGenius Support,” said Sagi Brody, CTO at Webair.

ProtoCloud will be launched in Webair’s NY1 data center and will be expanded to Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Montreal this spring.
