BackupAssist teams with Wasabi to offer cheaper backup for businesses

The two companies claim the backup solution is 80% cheaper than using S3 buckets

Automated backup and recovery software firm BackupAssist has partnered with cloud storage company Wasabi to offer customers a backup solution that it claims is 80% cheaper than using S3 buckets.

The firms said that as cyber security risks continue to become more prevalent and sophisticated, the need for secure, scalable, and reliable file and system backup has become increasingly important. But the problem has been compounded by a spike in data, with many organizations choosing to migrate to the cloud to offset on-premises storage, they claimed.

The firms said that combining Wasabi’s cloud with BackupAssist’s software would provide a flexible and cost-effective storage solution that offers backups for full system and granular recoveries anywhere, anytime. Also, BackupAssist’s CryptoSafeGuard combined with Wasabi’s 11 nines of object durability and data immutability enables backup files to remain secure.

Linus Chang, BackupAssist’s founder and CEO, said customers have asked for our recommended alternatives to the large first-generation public cloud providers, commonly inquiring about Wasabi specifically.

“In response, we began our standard stringent review process, with Wasabi quickly emerging as a top viable solution. In August 2020, we added Wasabi support for our BackupAssist ER, and with this announcement, we add support for our BackupAssist Classic solution as well,” he said. 

“Now, by adhering to BackupAssist’s best practices guidance to perform multiple backups for maximum resilience, our clients can employ both local and cloud-based backups to ensure maximum protection from virtually all cyber risks, as well as rapid recovery -- all at a dramatically lower cost.”

BackupAssist said that Wasabi’s storage is a fifth the cost of Amazon S3 with no fees for egress or API requests while remaining markedly faster than competitors. For those using a private cloud, the availability of a public cloud through Wasabi extends data resources for greater overall capacity without the high cost.

“Our mission is to disrupt the traditional cloud market and work with companies like BackupAssist to provide an affordable, scalable, and high-performing storage option to their clients,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi.

“One benefit we’re particularly proud of is being able to provide immutable storage, creating an even more secure cloud storage option which perfectly complements BackupAssist’s ability to provide enterprise-grade cyber-resilience for the clients’ file backup needs.”

BackupAssist will present Wasabi hot cloud storage in exclusive webinars on January 19 (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and January 27 (North America).
