Watsoft completes its MSP offer with Wasabi Technologies

November 30, 2020

BOSTON, MA - November 30, 2020 - Watsoft, a Value Added Distributor (VAD) wholesaler based in France, has announced its new partnership with Wasabi, the leader in hot cloud storage. Through this new partnership, Watsoft will now be able to provide Wasabi’s cloud storage to small and medium-sized businesses in French-speaking countries.

Wasabi provides simple, predictable and affordable hot cloud storage for SMB and enterprise-level clients across the globe. It enables organizations to store and instantly access an infinite amount of data with no complex tiers or unpredictable egress fees, all at 1/5th the price of the competition.

"As our customers’ IT and data management challenges become more complex, so has their need for reliable storage. This typically means a cloud migration is necessary as it's often a much more sustainable and cost-effective option when compared to on-premise," said Oleg Bivol, president of Watsoft.” By partnering with Wasabi, we’re able to enhance our MSP offerings by providing our clients with a cloud storage option that meets their storage needs today while preparing them for future growth.”

In addition to being a scalable, high-performing and cost-effective cloud storage option, Wasabi also features tamper-proof buckets to protect against the most common causes of data loss such as natural disasters, outages or cyber-attacks. Wasabi is compatible with Amazon S3 APIs and works perfectly with all of the existing S3 storage applications, such as backup and recovery.

“Our goal at Wasabi is to make the benefits that cloud storage provides available to any company beyond just those with massive budgets and robust IT teams that can manage the challenges presented by vendor agreements with the traditional big 3 storage providers,” said Richard Czech, VP of EMEA Sales at Wasabi. “By partnering with Watsoft, we’re able to continue this mission while expanding our availability within French-speaking countries.”

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage will be presented by Watsoft in an exclusive webinar that will take place on December 3rd. The solution will be available for sale through Watsoft at the beginning of December 2020.
