Wasabi has a new Wingman! Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can now order Wasabi hot cloud storage for their customers directly through Pax8, the leader in cloud distribution.

Pax8 is a distribution company that was born, lives and works in the cloud. Their team intuitively gets the needs of MSPs and an on-demand world, making Pax8 a great fit as the very first distribution partner for Wasabi.

Seize The Cloud Opportunity

Pax8 enables businesses to capitalize on the $1 trillion cloud opportunity and achieve more with cloud technologies. Through billing, provisioning, automation, industry-leading Professional Services Automation (PSA) integrations, and pre-and-post sales support, Pax8 simplifies cloud buying, improves operational efficiencies, and lowers your customer acquisition costs.

According to Frost & Sullivan’s annual cloud user survey, 76% of IT decision-makers expect to build their IT environment with multiple clouds from multiple vendors rather than from a single provider. Adopting a multi-cloud strategy is crucial to winning in the digital era, allowing companies to choose the best-of-the-best for their business at the right cost.

By adding Wasabi to the Pax8 Stax platform, MSPs can easily build and manage cloud storage offerings, have more visibility into usage, and take advantage of extensive automation to manage an entire suite of cloud offerings for their customers as though they were all from a single provider.
