Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage

If you've been waiting for the right time to start using cloud storage with BackupEDGE, that time is NOW!

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage has forever changed the cloud storage paradigm, which has typically consisted of free uploads (ingress), and reasonably cheap on-line storage, but expensive downloads (egress).

Since BackupEDGE checksum and / or bit-level verification and indexing are egress functions, as are restores, fees beyond basic storage can quickly start to add up.

Wasabi disrupts this space by charging $4.99 per Terabyte per Month for cloud storage, with NO EGRESS FEES!

Yes, you've read that right. Under 5 bucks per month per Terabyte for storage, with no extra fees.

PLUS, Wasabi is the only S3-compatible cloud storage we know of that also offers FTPS-based storage at the same price point.

It is now possible to reliably budget cloud storage by simply setting the Quota in the BackupEDGE S3CLOUD Resource in multiples of one Terabyte as your needs require.

We've entered into a Technology Alliance Partnership with Wasabi after doing a lot of testing. They offer reliability, redundancy, performance, and great pricing.

Sign up today with Wasabi and you'll get one Terabye (1TB) of storage for one month, FREE. Test with BackupEDGE and see for yourself. Give it a try and let us know how you like it!

We've dedicated a section of our User Guide (section 11.15) to Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage setup in both S3 and FTPS modes.

BackupEDGE 03.02.01

With BackupEDGE 03.02.01 Build 1 we've added ClearOS 7.4 support, as well as support for the latest Definitive 2018 products from Xinuos.

In other releases since our last newsletter, we've begun supporting Ubuntu 17.10, and improved our communications libraries and our Linux UEFI support.
