We had the pleasure this week to be at the VeeamON 2019 Event in beautiful Miami!\r\n\r\nAs a Silver Sponsor we talked with hundreds of Veeam Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and Managed Services Providers (MSPs) and customers about their cloud storage needs. \u00a0With over 2,000 attendees from around the globe and more than 50 breakout sessions, it was a tremendous event!\r\n\r\nAnd it\u2019s been a busy Wasabi week on top of attending VeeamON - with two major announcements!\r\n#1 - Wasabi is now Veeam Ready\r\nWasabi is now officially Veeam\u00ae Ready Object storage (read more > Wasabi Veeam Ready), which confirms both feature compatibility and performance levels according to Veeam\u2019s partner testing program standards.\r\nWasabi is a natural fit with Veeam Cloud Tier (a new feature included in Veeam Availability Suite\u2122 9.5 Update 4), that tiers older backup data to more affordable storage, namely cloud object storage. Veeam Cloud Tier provides unlimited capacity for long-term data retention by using cost effective object storage integrations with both native and S3-compatible service providers like Wasabi for enterprises of all sizes.\r\n\r\n\r\n#2 - Pax8 Now Offering Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Solution\r\nWasabi also announced a new partnership with Pax8, the best place to buy cloud products, to offer Wasabi to MSPs in North America. Pax8 is the first distribution partner for Wasabi and they also announced this week that they will be offering Veeam as part of their solution stack (read more > Pax 8 Now Offering Wasabi + Veeam).\r\n\r\nNow that Pax8 is offering both Veeam and Wasabi, MSPs can improve data protection, reduce expenses, and easily connect their Veeam environment to Wasabi hot cloud storage using Veeam\u2019s new object storage interface. (Remember our 2019 prediction that object storage was going to take off? Hold on, the ride is now taking off at radically more step angle!)\r\n\r\n\r\nHey Wasabi - What\u2019s the Catch?\r\nWasabi hot cloud storage was a huge hit with everyone who heard our story at VeeamON\u2026 the low cost, high performance of Wasabi makes so much sense that people inevitably ask us, \u201cWhat\u2019s the Catch?\u201d And there really isn\u2019t one. Really.\r\n\r\nWatch this interview by Brad Sams of the Petri Dish with Jennifer Kula and Laurie Mitchell, where he continues to see where we\u2019re hiding something, anything\u2026 and\u2026 well, you\u2019ll have to watch to find out what he finds.\r\n\r\nWatch the Petri Dish: Breaking the Data Storage Cost Mold\r\n\r\n\r\nAre You a Veeam VCSP? We Left Miami, but Welcome, Future Partners!\r\nAt VeeamOn, not only did we field questions the entire time, but we also welcomed any existing Veeam VCSPs to become a Wasabi partner, and even had one want to signup on the spot!\r\n\r\nIf you are interested in becoming a Wasabi partner, go to our Partner Page and choose \u201cBecome a Partner\u201d - we look forward to working with you!
