Application Development

Don't let storage costs eat all your profits.


Managing storage as you create software.

Controlling application development and testing costs is a primary goal for every organization. Storage can be a significant component of your cost structure, depending on how much data your applications generate. And high-performance access to storage can improve time-to-production, improve application quality, and lower costs.

Storing your apps and app-generated data where they cannot be compromised is another challenge, so you need a storage solution that is secure.

Wasabi Solution

Wasabi Hot Storage scales right alongside your needs at utility pricing. So you don’t have to concern yourself with virtual machine (VM) density as you create multiple virtualized storage environments for development and testing. Or worry about the cost. Wasabi protects your stored code against accidental or malicious changes and deletions. And Wasabi provides top performance in getting your app dev tools, stored code, Big Data, and components in and out of storage.

Paying 80 percent less for storage may be just what your application needs to reach profitability.
Access your tools, stored code, and data 6x faster than S3 to improve your time to production and market.
Immutable buckets make sure your master code is never corrupted, altered, or deleted.

Application Development Cases

Whether you need maximum performance for data-intensive applications, or extremely low-cost storage to maximize your budget. Wasabi' next-generation hot storage is a smart alternative to legacy cloud storage.

Item 1

Performance is everything.

Consumers will abandon a web page if it takes 3 seconds or more to load. So performance of data-intensive Web pages is of utmost importance. With performance that’s 6x faster than Amazon S3, you can be sure that your customers and development teams can access pages instantly.

As they create pages, developers can take instant, space-efficient snapshots of individual development and test virtual machines (VMs) without any performance impact. You’ll be able to replicate these snapshots and save them in Wasabi Hot Storage for business continuity or archive them for fast retrieval.

Protecting master code

Data protection of the software development and test environment is also a key goal. Safely storing copies of your completed master code – and being able to access it quickly – is essential for protecting your valuable software assets. And that’s what you get with Wasabi.

Item 2

Why let the high price of storage ruin a good thing?

Offering a free social or mobile app to consumers, with the goal of making money on advertising sales, is a viable strategy for many developers. But if your app burns through storage space, like many image-intensive or social-sharing sites do, you may run out of cash before you build an audience capable of bringing in revenue. With typical cloud storage prices as high as they are, you may never reach profitability.

Wasabi storage, on the other hand, makes it economically possible for entrepreneurs to store what they need to store while they are in the early stages of building a user base. So they can afford to hang in there until the revenues start rolling in.

Built-in app integrity

Insecure data storage is one of the largest problems associated with the integrity of a mobile app. Preventing any data leakage is a major challenge all mobile application developers must face, whether it is financial information, login data or healthcare records.

When your apps and app-generated data are stored with Wasabi, they’re impervious to hacking, alteration, and theft. No one can touch it or change it until you give the word.

Item 3

Now you can keep it all.

Backup and archiving both potentially consume a lot of storage, depending on the size of the backup and how long you keep it.  The cost of archiving your software, in particular, can play a huge role in your overall app development cost structure, as it represents the storage of valuable assets.  Why not get it for 80 percent less than the going rate?

When selecting storage, consider how easy it will be to deploy new development and test environments with the right performance mix so that the storage I/O of any one VM will not impact any other VM.

That’s what you get with Wasabi: performance that’s 6x faster and at a price that’s 80 percent less expensive than Amazon S3. With immutability and security built right in.
