CTO Sagi Brody to Speak on Disruptive Cloud and Hyper-converged Infrastructure Trends
NEW YORK, March 10, 2017 – Webair, a high-touch, agile Cloud and fully managed infrastructure service provider, today announces that its Chief Technology Officer, Sagi Brody, will speak at DCD Enterprise New York, taking place March 14-15, 2017 at the New York Marriot Marquis in Manhattan.
An adverse event or outage at a data center can happen when it’s least expected, causing prolonged downtime and significant financial loss for an organization. Therefore, every data center needs a reliable disaster recovery plan.
Fortunately, it’s easy to obtain a robust disaster recovery solution by working with a cloud and fully-managed infrastructure provider like Webair. Just recently, Webair announced a partnership with Data Storage Corporation that will enhance its High Availability (HA) Disaster Recovery and overall support capabilities for IBM Power Systems (iSeries, AS/400 and AIX) environments.
Medical data is one of the hottest commodities on the black market, typically selling for approximately $14 to $25 per record. Because of this, healthcare providers must take advanced measures to protect electronic personal health information (ePHI), especially when storing data offsite in a hosted cloud facility.
Now it appears healthcare companies are finally getting the message about the need for heightened data security. InTouchMD, for instance, the leading provider of healthcare marketing solutions, recently partnered with Webair to establish a direct fiber connection between Webair’s flagship NY1 data center and InTouchMD’s headquarters in New York. The partnership makes InTouchMD one of the safest and most secure destinations for pharmaceutical industry data.
Businesses today are facing an uphill battle in the fight against cybercrime, as threats are increasing in both volume and complexity year over year. Gartner predicts that by 2020, 60 percent of digital companies will suffer major service failures due to an inability to properly manage risk.
As the threat landscape continues to intensify, data center providers will need to evolve to offer more cybersecurity solutions for businesses. In fact, this trend is already starting to occur. Webair, for instance, a high-touch, agile cloud and fully-managed service provider, recently announced a groundbreaking partnership with global managed security services provider Oxford Solutions that will grant businesses easy access to advanced cybersecurity offerings as well as a 24/7 security operations center in Webair’s NY1 data center.

The cloud is supposed to streamline operations and reduce costs for businesses, but many healthcare organizations are learning that the cloud can be complex and challenging too.
For this reason, Gartner just released a new report that helps to clarify the current challenges, industry trends and notable players in the cloud market for healthcare organizations.
We get it. Selecting a cloud provider is not easy. It requires trusting another organization to handle your sensitive data and manage critical backend processes. This can be risky. It’s therefore critical to consider a provider’s reputation when purchasing cloud services.
