Spotlight: Wasabi Technologies
“Wasabi customers who haven’t yet gone to the cloud often find that their connectivity isn’t quite up to 21st century standards,” said Jim Donovan, SVP Product, for Wasabi.
“With Megaport’s dramatically streamlined provisioning capability, we are able to enable Wasabi customers to move large datasets from on-prem to the cloud with the same ‘on-demand’ expectations we all have for cloud provisioning, as opposed to the standard delay of six weeks or more to provision new or expanded connectivity. Customers love the speed for provisioning, and ability to take advantage of Megaport’s capabilities without being locked into lengthy contracts.”
Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage is a universal, one size fits all cloud object storage service that eliminates confusing storage tiers and satisfies nearly all storage performance requirements. Hot Cloud Storage costs less than traditional cold storage service and is significantly faster than traditional frequent-access storage services, at 1/5th the price and up to 6x the speed of Amazon S3 with no additional hidden fees or API call charges. With Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage all data is treated equally and made readily accessible no matter how you classify it, hot, cool or cold. Hot Cloud Storage is low-cost, durable and highly available secure cloud storage with no tier-based latency delays.
Wasabi Technologies joined Megaport as a Service Provider partner in Ashburn, VA; Portland, OR; and Los Angeles, CA to enable Wasabi customers to ingest data from their on-prem data centers or other cloud providers into their Wasabi hot cloud storage buckets, either as a one-time, instantly provisioned high-speed connectivity option to bulk move data, or for ongoing data upload/download needs.
