Wasabi Technologies, Inc. introduced Cloud Sync Manager, an affordable and performing cloud migration tool that allows businesses globally to move their data out of expensive hyperscale cloud environments like AWS S3 to Wasabi without egress fees or downtime.
It also delivers replication and synchronization of data between different Wasabi regions to reduce latency, meet compliance requirements, and foster practices for data backup and recovery. Customers benefit from the flexibility of shifting data between clouds at any time, the ability to protect copies of data in different regions while increasing their cloud data performance and response time, and reducing overall storage costs.
Skyrocketing cloud prices and the current economic climate are leading many businesses to tighten their budgets and look for more affordable cloud storage solutions. However, exorbitant costs associated with cloud to cloud migration, like egress and data retrieval fees, and technical infrastructure challenges to migrate data back on premise and then to a new cloud, force many to stay locked into their current vendor.
Cloud Sync Manager bypasses the high costs and technical hurdles associated with cloud to cloud migration. It uses private network connections to migrate data from AWS, Azure, GCP, and other S3 compliant storage directly to Wasabi. This reduces egress costs from those providers, avoids Internet latency and bottlenecks, and provides fast and predictable performance that lets users rapidly move massive datasets. Data is transferred with no downtime, enabling customers to continue putting data into their original cloud quickly, and without stopping the data transfer. Meanwhile, the bucket replication feature allows customers to copy objects from a storage bucket in a specific Wasabi region to a different bucket in another storage region.This is for adding an extra layer of data protection, meeting compliance and sovereignty requirements, or minimizing latency.
The firm’s hot cloud storage is less expensive and markedly faster than AWS S3 and similar providers, meaning it can be universally applied to any storage use case such as active archiving, backup, DR, storage for a custom application (active data), and more. At 1/5th the cost of hyperscalers, with no fees for egress or API requests and no vendor lock-in, businesses are able to securely and affordably store all of their data and access it the moment they need to without complex pricing tiers. Cloud Sync Manager helps users take advantage of lower cost storage as quickly as possible and start saving money.
“Wasabi’s singular focus is to deliver the best cloud storage in the world, and Cloud Sync Manager marks the next step in our mission,” said David Boland, VP, Wasabi. “Companies in the past may have wanted to leave their cloud provider, but couldn’t afford to. Now, Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager allows customers to switch to the more affordable and higher performing Wasabi hot cloud storage for just pennies per gigabye, depending on the data source and geographical region, and start saving money immediately.”
