BOSTON MA,— December 8, 2020 — Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, has been named an “outperformer” in the new report, “GigaOm Radar for Alternatives to Amazon AWS S3.” GigaOm evaluated 11 cloud storage vendors based on common metrics related to Amazon AWS S3 including cost-predictability, performance, multi-cloud environment, and lock-in avoidance. Vendors were then categorized by execution, roadmap, and ability to innovate. Wasabi ranked as an industry leader with recognition for its technical innovation and cutting-edge functionality due to the company’s multi-cloud performance and vendor lock-in avoidance.

The report recognizes Wasabi for its simple, convenient, and straightforward pricing that is 1/5th the cost of Amazon AWS S3 with no hidden fees for egress or API requests. Wasabi’s channel-friendly business model and growing partner network were also noted as strengths, as well as the company’s investment in security compliance which includes HIPAA, HITECH, FINRA, CJIS, and FERPA certifications making it a trusted storage option for government and financial institutions.

“As the cloud marketplace becomes more diversified, Wasabi has carved out a niche for itself thanks to its commitment to simple, reliable cloud storage. The company’s combination of cost, performance and S3 compatibility, in addition to its simplicity, makes Wasabi an excellent option for any company seeking instant access to data regardless of file location,” said Enrico Signoretti, Senior Analyst at GigaOm.

“Wasabi was founded on the belief that cloud storage doesn’t need to be as complicated and expensive as the hyperscalers like AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and others have made it. It’s our mission to create a transparent and high-performing solution to this problem and our collaboration with like-minded channel partners has helped us continue on this journey,” said Wasabi CEO & Co-Founder, David Friend. “Being recognized as an outperformer by GigaOm is further validation that our approach to flexible and easy-to-use cloud storage is resonating in the market and filling a need for data-centric organizations both large and small.”
