Wasabi Technologies Receives 2021 Backup and Disaster Recovery Award from Cloud Computing Magazine

January 6, 2022

BOSTON, MA, January 6, 2022 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage as a 2021 Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award winner, presented by TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine. The Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award recognizes technologies and vendors that have built cloud solutions empowering businesses small or large to remain active and productive under even the most challenging conditions, minimizing lost business opportunities.

With Wasabi hot cloud storage, organizations can store and instantly access an unlimited amount of data at 1/5th the price of the competition with no complex tiers or fees for egress or API requests, removing the complexity of modern data storage with simple, affordable backup and recovery. Data can be accessed exactly when needed, and organizations have more freedom to frequently test their recovery process, identify weak spots, and facilitate improvements to help them prepare in the event of a disaster across a number of endpoints including desktops, laptops, on-prem servers, virtual servers.

Wasabi hot cloud storage is designed with eleven nines (99.999999999%) of object durability, ACL-based user authentication and AES 256 encryption of data at rest, ensuring backed up data remains secure. It also offers Object Lock, an award-winning data feature through which users can set their data to be ‘immutable’ or unable to be altered or deleted by anyone for a set period of time. This added layer of protection maintains the integrity of the data and makes it easily available for the recovery process.

“You can’t recover what you haven’t kept, so maintaining current copies of data and applications is a must for ensuring business continuity in the event of ransomware, human error, or natural disaster. Unfortunately the size and scope of today’s data can make this prohibitively expensive without the right strategy in place,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO of Wasabi Technologies. “When organizations backup to Wasabi, they have an easy, affordable method of making sure all critical information is replicated—and that it’s secure and immediately available if and when needed. This makes Wasabi ideal for backing up everything from mission-critical databases and applications to high-resolution images and media.”

“I offer congratulations to the winners of the Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The winning solutions are enabling organizations to feel confident during regular business, and reassured in stressful situations. I look forward to seeing continued innovation from these award recipients.”
