Webair Purchases Web Host Wisol

NEW YORK - In a move to expand its operations into Canada, online hosting company Webair has purchased Montreal-based Wisol, the company announced Tuesday.


The move is expected to help Webair become an international presence and allow the company to offer colocation, dedicated and complex hosting services within its newest facility.


"It's all about better service and providing the latest technological solutions for our growing roster of worldwide customers," said Michael Christopher, president and founder of Webair.


The Wisol acquisition is expected to yield better routes to Webair's global customers, increased peering, redundancy and additional sites for global mirroring, load balancing and backups.


"It's an exciting time at Webair," Christopher said. "Acquiring Wisol provides our company with increased market share and our clients with the best hosting services anywhere on the globe. With more locations comes increased reliability and advanced connectivity options. Along with the Montreal acquisition, we are expanding our footprints in both New York and Amsterdam, as well."

"Michael and the team at Webair are a real class act," said Mike M., former chief executive officer of Wisol. "I am proud Wisol has become part of such a dynamic company."
