Wasabi is amazingly easy to use. You can set up an account in seconds. With our intuitive S3-like web console you can create storage buckets, set up users and configure access policies in no time. And with support for a wide range of S3-compatible storage clients for a variety of host platforms, you can move files in and out of the cloud the same way you would with a local drive, with drag-and-drop simplicity and convenience.

Inexpensive, fast and reliable, Wasabi is ideal for a wide range of applications. Some examples include:

  • Multi-cloud storage - keep a secondary copy of your S3 storage for 20% of the cost of Amazon S3
  • Hybrid Storage - protect and extend on-premises storage investments

Disruptive Pricing

Affordable, simple and predictable, Wasabi’s pricing blows away the competition. With two ways to pay, choose the model that works best for your business. Wasabi’s pay-as-you-go pricing model is billed monthly and is built to scale with your data needs. Wasabi Reserved Capacity Storage makes buying cloud storage a natural addition to your on-premises storage. If you are thinking about buying more hardware storage, compare the price against 5 years of Reserved Capacity Storage. You can purchase cloud storage in 1, 3, or 5 year increments and achieve greater discounts for term and capacity. Unlike Amazon, Google and Azure we don’t impose extra fees to retrieve data from storage (egress fees). And we don’t charge extra fees for PUT, GET, DELETE or other API requests.
