It began with a simple question: “What if we could cut the cost of cloud data storage by 80% while at the same time making it faster and simpler?” And with that simple question, Wasabi was born, founded by Carbonite co-founders, cloud storage pioneers and two of the leading minds in storage, David Friend and Jeff Flowers.
Since 2017, Wasabi has been changing the cloud storage landscape with Hot Cloud Storage, a disruptively simple, one size fits all cloud storage technology that is 1/5th the price and faster than the competition with no egress fees, API call charges, or additional hidden fees. Wasabi is game changing, leading-edge cloud technology that allows users to affordably store a nearly infinite amount of data. Wasabi is an entirely new approach to cloud storage… a bottomless cloud that grows with your business.
Day in and day out, cloud storage is the only thing we think about. This single-minded approach has us laser focused on making cloud storage a simple utility, just like electricity. You pay as you need it, it’s always on and always available. Why is this so vital? Because everyone needs to store data, and we’re generating more of it every day. The decision to keep it or discard it depends on the price of storage. Business models increasingly depend on analyzing data. From drug discovery to discovering new exoplanets, from defeating ransomware to storing cryptocurrency, it all depends on storing large amounts of data cheaply. We figured that if we could cut the cost of storage by 80%, the effects would ripple through the IT industry as customers find new ways to use an abundance of data that they previously couldn’t afford to keep. Every day we see our customers embarking on data-intensive applications that would have been unthinkable before the advent of such inexpensive, super-fast, cloud storage.
Wasabi is on a mission to store all the world’s data by making data storage simple, affordable, fast and secure. If you have data to store, whether it’s backups, x-rays, surveillance videos, financial data, media and entertainment, or scientific data, Wasabi’s pledge is to always be the cheapest, fastest, most secure and reliable cloud storage in the world. It’s all we do, and we do it better than anyone.
At Wasabi, we’re storage experts. We realized long ago that the biggest challenge businesses face with their data is how to store it affordably, reliably and securely. The data that defines your business today, and your success tomorrow, needs to be stored in a universal storage product that serves nearly all your cloud storage requirements.
We made Wasabi low cost by starting with a clean slate and designing high performance object storage from the ground up, making use of the latest storage technologies. We made Wasabi fast by understanding how to optimize the way data is stored on disk and designing a system that reads and writes to large arrays of drives at enormous speeds. We made Wasabi durable by utilizing a high level of redundancy to achieve 11 nines of durability. And we made Wasabi simple by eliminating egress fees, API charges, and multiple tiers of storage. And finally, we made Wasabi scalable so that we could handle the world’s largest storage loads quickly and efficiently. With over an exabyte of storage already deployed and the amount doubling every 8 months across data centers in the US, Europe, and Asia, we built Wasabi to grow with our customers’ data storage needs.
We don’t have 200+ other cloud products like the hyperscalers. We don’t do compute. We don’t run CDNs, or machine learning, or business analytics. We just do storage. And by focusing 100% of our attention and our resources on storage, we can always be the world’s best cloud storage provider.
