Managed hosting provider Webair today announced the opening of its NY1 data center, which part of a new headquarters facility in Garden City, NY. The 50,000 square foot facility previously served as a working data center and center of flight operations for discount airline JetBlue.
"We are thrilled for our expansion into the new data center which enables us to provide clients with the latest technologies and advancements," said Michael C. Orza, CEO of Webair.com. "In addition, we have implemented eco and energy-efficient programs into the facility such as Green cooling technology which leverages cold weather to reduce energy consumption. All our environmental systems are N+1 redundant, and the high-tech facility provides us the most reliability for our servers and allows us the ability to provide the highest level of service and space to support our growth."
NY1 houses Webair's Network Operations Center which is staffed around the clock and protected by a biometric access control system. Webair's NY1 meet-me-room offers clients direct carrier neutral connectivity to providers including Level3, Global Crossings, AboveNet, Lighttower, XO Communications and Verizon. Additional features include high density cabinets with flexible power configurations, disaster recovery seats, and an array of managed services.
