New York, NY (January 6, 2011) – Webair (www.Webair.com) starts the New Year off with an exciting announcement – the official opening of their new executive headquarters and flagship datacenter in Garden City, NY. Termed “NY1,” this state of the art datacenter for the managed hosting provider was acquired from JetBlue and was formerly the center of JetBlue’s flight operations. NY1 boasts over 50,000 square feet and was built with the purpose of delivering high density, reliable datacenter space.

NY1 houses Webair’s Network Operations Center which is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by onsite personnel and utilizes proximity cards and a biometric access control system. It is a modified Tier 4 facility with N+1 power and cooling infrastructure, Inergen gas-based fire suppression system and paralleling generators that provide redundant fault tolerant emergency power. With over 180Gbps of network capacity, physically diverse points of entry, redundant fiber routes and Manhattan bypass, Webair’s NY1 is one of the best connected facilities in the region.

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 a wide array of managed services.

“We are thrilled for our expansion into the new datacenter 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.”

Webair’s commitment to enhancing service and support was recently highlighted with the launch of the Server Genius™ Support. Server Genius™ Support is made possible by a core of intelligent, highly trained, and dedicated team of technical engineers that always go above and beyond to support Webair’s diverse and growing client base.
