Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage
Infinitely affordable and predictably priced cloud object storage. No complex tiers. No fees for egress or API calls.
What is Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage?
Hot Cloud Storage is simple, fast, and affordable cloud object storage. There are no archival or warm storage tiers to deal with–it’s just one tier of highly secure, low-latency storage that’s as fast or faster than the hyperscalers’ most expensive frequent-access tiers, yet priced closer to what you’d expect to pay for slower archive storage. This makes Wasabi the ideal storage target for a wide variety of use cases, from active archives to offsite backups.
Best of all, there are no additional fees for egress of API calls, so you get straightforward pricing that eliminates the guesswork associated with using AWS S3 and other hyperscale cloud providers.
Cloud Storage that is simple, predictable, affordable and secure
Stop paying cloud storage transaction fees
According to a recent independent survey, enterprises are spending almost as much on cloud storage fees as they are on storage capacity. These “transaction fees” that legacy cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure) charge are in addition to the high per-terabyte fees you’re already paying to store your data.
Transactions such as retrieving data, restoring files, testing backups, or moving data between storage tiers are common and necessary operations that add up fast. And because it’s difficult to predict how many of these transactions you’ll need to perform in a given month, it’s impossible to predict your overall storage costs.
In fact, of the 61% of IT decision-makers that reported going over budget on their cloud storage in 2022, the vast majority (91%) cited one or more transaction fee types as the reason why.

Cloud Storage FAQs
Cloud storage refers to a service that allows you to store and access your digital data, such as files, documents, photos, videos, and music, on remote servers that are accessible through the internet. The storage servers are usually maintained by third-party companies, like Wasabi, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and iCloud.
The primary advantage of cloud storage is that it provides a convenient and reliable way to access your files from anywhere, at any time, using any device with an internet connection. Cloud storage also allows you to share files and collaborate with others easily, without the need for physical storage devices, such as USB drives or external hard drives.
Cloud storage is often used as a backup solution, as it provides an additional layer of protection for your files in case your local storage device fails or is lost. Additionally, many cloud storage providers offer advanced security features, such as encryption, multi-factor authentication, or immutability to protect your data from unauthorized access or hacking.
Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage is a universal, one size fits all cloud object storage service that eliminates confusing storage tiers and satisfies nearly all storage performance requirements. Hot Cloud Storage costs less than traditional cold storage service and is significantly faster than traditional frequent-access storage services. With Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, all data is treated equally and made readily accessible no matter how you classify it: hot, cool or cold. Hot Cloud Storage is low-cost, durable and highly available secure cloud storage with no tier-based latency delays.
Data that needs to be readily visible and available to the operating system and/or application software with which it was created and must be immediately accessible to users. It is data that is accessed frequently or continuously as part of a business process or other operation. Because of its frequent access requirements, active data is typically kept in a tier closest to the user, causing it to be more localized and expensive. That is until Wasabi came along.
Data that is too valuable for a company to discard but is accessed only occasionally. Active archive data is usually stored on less expensive, slower performing storage media such as tape, inexpensive disks or in a remote cloud storage tier that typically has delayed data retrieval time association. Wasabi’s high performance, coupled with its low costs and no fees for egress make it an ideal active archive storage solution.
Data that is seen as essential for saving but not necessarily for frequent retrieval. Inactive archive data typically adheres to corporate, agency and legal policy where regulation and compliance concerns require long-term retention and retrieval of sensitive financial, medical, or employee data. While it is typically the least expensive way to store data, traditional inactive archive media comes with significant retrieval and latency delays. Wasabi’s price-performance makes it a viable option for cold storage with the added benefit of instant accessibility should you need it.
