Windstream Enterprise (WE), a managed communications service provider, today unveiled a new, unprecedented solution for hybrid cloud enterprise networks with the launch of WINpod, a service within their award-winning Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) suite. WINpod, powered by Windstream Enterprise, enables 100 percent uptime and unparalleled resiliency for businesses’ critical applications.
With WINpod, enterprises move their primary data center to a secure, Windstream Enterprise-owned and controlled cabinet on-premises. WINpod leverages Avaya’s XCaaS technology to support on-premises data centers and connects to a back-up, geo-redundant data center in the cloud, providing complete protection for mission-critical applications such as SpectraLink, CRM, and local copper/PRI trunking in the event of a network outage.
“From healthcare to financial services, organizations require survivability for unexpected events,” said Layne Levine, president of Windstream Enterprise. “Peace of mind comes from knowing that the technology behind your network is managed by two of the most innovative and customer-oriented providers in the business. Customers deserve this level of confidence in their networks.”
