Morro Data and Wasabi Join Forces to Deliver Fast, More Affordable Cloud Storage with NAS Performance

January 23, 2018

FREMONT, Calif. and BOSTON, Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morro Data, an innovative provider of cloud-first global file services, and Wasabi, the hot storage company, today announced that Morro has incorporated Wasabi’s award-winning cloud storage service into Morro’s portfolio of service choices for its CloudNAS Essentials, CloudNAS Business, and CloudNAS Enterprise storage services. Wasabi’s cloud service famously provides a 6x performance advantage over AWS’s S3 service at just one fifth of the price, while Morro Data’s CloudNAS platform provides all of the benefits of cloud storage while retaining NAS-like performance and user experience. Together, CloudNAS powered by Wasabi delivers Small- and Medium-Businesses (SMBs) one of the highest performance and most versatile 3-in-1 global file services solution for unlimited file storage, multiple office sync, and disaster recovery.

“As SMBs become more sophisticated about managing data as a primary asset, they require more advanced functionality than has traditionally been available. They also don’t have the six figure storage budgets of a large enterprise,” said Paul Tien, founder and CEO of Morro Data. “The combination of our CloudNAS platform with Wasabi makes for the ideal solution for a business that needs a high-performance storage solution for multiple sites that doesn’t break the bank.”

Morro Data’s CloudNAS services deliver the performance and scale necessary for businesses with hundreds of users that require large capacity across multiple locations. Additionally, CloudNAS combines Morro Data’s Cache & Sync technology with its Global File System to ensure businesses have the highest level of performance, capacity and collaboration services such as file locks, versioning, and replication. With Wasabi’s low-cost, high-performance approach, businesses can keep all of their data online, as Morro Data and Wasabi delivers 3-in-1 global files services by combining:

  • Unlimited Primary Storage on Morro Cloud
  • Multiple Office File Sync with Morro’s Global File System
  • Instant Disaster Recovery by syncing TBs of file system to a newly provisioned CacheDrive in minutes

“With Morro Data and Wasabi working together, businesses can now feel confident moving all of their data to the cloud,” said David Friend, CEO for Wasabi. “It’s safer, more flexible, and with our high-performance hot storage service and Morro Data’s CacheDrive appliance, there is really no reason to incorporate expensive drives that could potentially fail at any moment. The time for SMB cloud storage is now.”
