RCS Customer Success:  Midwest-based Architectural and Engineering design firm The Clark Enersen Partners

“As a multidiscipline firm working on projects spanning multiple industries, we are highly protective of our data and will only utilize partners we can trust. Wasabi was easy to use and interfaced well with our existing storage solutions. With Wasabi’s RCS pricing model we were able to realize substantial cost savings and modernize an aging archive workflow which gave us more immediate access to our data. Storing our data with Wasabi with the RCS pricing model was a logical choice.”

Choose the pricing and payment model that best fits your business with pay-as-you-go or Reserved Capacity Storage Options.

No matter which model you choose, Wasabi hot cloud storage is enterprise class, low cost, high performance cloud object storage with no fees for egress or API requests and no complex storage tiers. Your business may be unpredictable, but your data costs shouldn’t be.

Go Cloud Your Way

Just because you are migrating some of your data to the cloud doesn’t mean that all of your data will be 100% off-site. Cloud storage is ideal for a variety of applications:

  • Primary storage for on premises or cloud-based workloads
  • Secondary storage for backup and recovery
  • Archival storage for long term data retention

This versatility protects and extends previous storage infrastructure investments, allowing you to migrate to the cloud on your own terms.
