Key Features

    Wasabi cloud storage offers a variety of features, including:

  • Security: Wasabi’s data centers are certified for SOC 2 and ISO 27001 compliance, and they use end-to-end encryption, IAM, MFA, and SSO encryption in transit and at rest.
  • Durability: Wasabi offers millisecond-fast retrieval times, and its hot storage doesn’t have the long retrieval times of cold or archive storage.
  • Cost: Wasabi’s pricing is predictable and straightforward, with no hidden fees for API requests or egress charges. Users can also purchase long-term reserved storage in one, three, or five-year increments, which is cheaper than the pay-as-you-go option.
  • Immutability: Wasabi offers immutability at the object and bucket level.
  • Compatibility: Wasabi is 100% AWS S3 and IAM API compatible.
  • Integrations: Wasabi integrates with hundreds of partners

Description

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. It is enterprise class, tier-free, instantly available and allows you to store an infinite amount of data affordably. Wasabi provides an S3-compliant interface to use with storage applications, gateways and other platforms. Hot Cloud Storage uses one tier to meet all the storage needs of an organization. It eliminates the complexity that first-generation cloud storage providers create with confusing tiered storage services with different performance characteristics, price points and SLAs. Data is usually classified by other services as Active “Hot” Data, data that needs to be readily visible and available. Or Active Archive “Cold” Data, data that is too valuable for a company to discard but is only accessed occasionally. Or Inactive Archive “Cold” Data, data that is seen as essential for saving but not necessarily for frequent retrieval. Wasabi approaches all data as “hot”, but reduces the expenses and time associated with storage. Whether you need a second copy in the cloud, off-site disaster recovery, an active and accessible data archive, or long-term storage, Wasabi’s breakthrough price-performance makes the choice simple. When it comes to cloud storage security, Wasabi address physical, storage data, and communications security. Wasabi uses only premier tier 4 datacenter facilities for co-locating our equipment. Each site is staffed 24/7/365 with onsite security and to protect against unauthorized entry. Each site has security cameras that monitor both the facility premises as well as each area of the datacenter internally. There are biometric readers for access as well as at least two factor authentication to gain access to the building. Each facility is unmarked so as not to draw any additional attention from the outside and adheres to strict local and federal government standards. For storage data security, Wasabi is secure by default and all data stored in the Wasabi cloud is always encrypted at rest (even if the requesting party doesn’t specify encryption). Wasabi follows industry-best security models and security design practices. For example, HTTPS is supported for the secure upload/download of data and buckets are only accessible to the bucket and object creators. Wasabi supports user authentication to control access to data (including support for the AWS IAM model) and access control mechanisms such as bucket policies and Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be used to selectively grant permissions to users and groups of users. Finally, all communications with Wasabi are transmitted over SSL (HTTPS) for both access to the public website as well as the S3 storage and IAM APIs.
