Webair said that it is now offering a geo-redundant email hosting solution.

ProtoMail guarantees that real-time copies of data is stored in "two geographically diverse datacenters," which should protect a customer from data loss caused by "natural disasters or other catastrophes".

ProtoMail also offers virus protection and spam-filtering technology and customization features to give businesses control over security and compliance requirements. The service supports popular email clients available on iOS, Android OS, Blackberry OS and tablets with IMAP, POP, SMTP and Webmail. There is also a web-based administration utility which enables the creation of accounts, user management, and implementation of routing rules.WebAir Intros Geo-Redundant Business Email ServiceWebAir Intros Geo-Redundant Business Email Service

"With geo-redundancy hosting, clients can quiet their mind knowing their email will be highly available even in a rare situation of a datacenter failure," said Sagi Brody, CTO of Webair. "In the event of a datacenter failure, the secondary datacenter will be automatically promoted and service maintained."

ProtoMail is priced from $2.20 per month for a 200 MB mailbox. A 25 GB mailbox is priced at $4.40 per month.
