As hybrid/multi-cloud strategies gain momentum, there is a growing desire to increase the economic locality of reference for independent cloud service providers. Simply stated, there is a need to reduce or eliminate the cost of data transfer between the compute instance and connected object storage to compete with hyperscalers and their vertically integrated mega clouds. This is exactly why Wasabi has partnered with Vultr to simplify a best-of-breed approach to leveraging a multi-cloud implementation.

With the Wasabi + Vultr partnership, IT operations teams and developers will reduce their cloud expenses, eliminating the charges for object storage egress and API requests. This combination of logically and economically seamless integration between our companies gives our mutual customers the freedom to leverage the cloud the way it was meant to be used.

Fighting Egress Fees

Ultimately, this should enable companies to spend less on compute and storage, while spending more on innovation and discovery for the benefit of their current and future customers. Unlocking innovation and discovery was a big part of the cloud promise that disappeared when the hyperscalers realized that building a walled garden and holding data hostage with excessive egress fees was their key to profitability. For those who are tired of paying the hyperscaler taxes and data egress ransom, this is your independence day!

“Our friends at Wasabi see the same thing that we do – that the Big Tech clouds are dramatically overpriced and overcomplicated,” said Shane Zide, VP of Global Sales & Channel, Vultr. “Wasabi and Vultr both deliver unrivaled performance at industry-low prices. We look forward to showing Wasabi customers and partners the dramatic savings that are possible when you use Wasabi object storage together with Vultr cloud compute.”

Practically speaking, what does this partnership mean? It means that workloads like transcoding, data/metadata analysis, signal analysis, machine learning, backup/disaster recovery, etc. can be instantiated, operated, and maintained at a fraction of the cost of what AWS, Google, or Azure would charge the average customer, particularly startups and mid-sized companies. It means that when your business-critical analysis uncovers insights that require additional investigation or clarification, the cost of accessing your data, and the IT budget associated with that data, will no longer be a limiting factor.
