Sydney is the latest in firm’s expansive international rollout. In 2021, the company opened APAC HQs in Tokyo, Japan, and a short time later launched a storage region in Osaka, Japan. This year, the company began service in Toronto, Canada, Frankfurt, Germany, Paris, France, and London, UK, to meet the demand for affordable and performing cloud storage, as well as to accommodate its growing partner network WW.

With game-changing technological advancements across many industries, including healthcare, education, energy, video surveillance, and M&E, Australians are embracing cloud technologies to modernize their infrastructure and handle the scope of data now being generated. GlobalData plc projects the Australian cloud market to top $14 billion by 2025. To support this growing market, location in Sydney provides closer proximity to customers and partners, including Veeam Software, Inc., to reduce latency and keep costs affordable and predictable.

As the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, Veeam has a valuable technology alliance partnership with Wasabi,” said Andreas Neufert, VP of product management, Veeam. “Now with expanded service in APAC, our joint customers will benefit from higher performance as a result of reduced latency. Wasabi’s product knowledge and expertise will help customers to reduce the management overhead for offsite storage.

Wasabi hot cloud storage has transformed the industry with a simple solution that is 1/5th the cost of hyperscalers, with no fees for egress or API requests and no vendor lock-in. Businesses are able to store all of their data and access it the moment they need it without complex pricing tiers.

Housed in the Equinix Sydney location and leveraging Equinix Metal and Equinix Fabric, Wasabi’s latest region is scalable and benefits from speed and access, industry environmental and energy efficiency standards, and the ability to address data sovereignty needs as firm’s reach continues to expand. Wasabi serves customers in over 100 countries, storing data ranging from backups, disaster and ransomware recovery, archiving, and more.

We are proud to once again work with Wasabi as they expand their presence even deeper into AsiaPac with this new storage region in Australia,” said Roddie Samuel, senior director of sales, Equinix Australia. “Wasabi’s innovative low-cost object storage in combination with our digital services greatly benefits organizations around the world by reducing costs and delivering a simpler experience with higher performance.

With AsiaPac at the forefront of digital-first business strategy and tremendously growing hybrid cloud adoption, Sydney was the obvious choice for Wasabi’s newest storage region, following our additions of Tokyo and Osaka last year,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO, Wasabi. “By bringing Wasabi’s high-performing and cost-effective cloud storage to Australia, we’re empowering even more organizations across APAC to extract the true value of their data, maximize the benefits of their digital infrastructure priorities, and achieve tangible business results without the complexity that comes with the hyperscalers.
