Wasabi and Unitrends Partner to Provide Cost-Effective and Secure Cloud Storage

Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announced a new partnership with Unitrends, a Kaseya® company and the global leader of all-in-one enterprise backup and continuity solutions. The partnership allows users to automatically move infrequently accessed data to Wasabi’s cloud to free up primary storage capacity, shrink their backup footprint, and better align storage costs with data value.

Unitrends provides automated and resilient data protection through a combination of next-generation backup appliances and cloud-based options that make reliable backup and recovery simple and effortless. At ⅕ the cost of competing cloud storage options with zero egress fees, Wasabi provides a high-performing, scalable and easy to manage storage option that liberates companies from the high service costs and vendor lock-in associated with traditional cloud storage providers. Both companies’ commitment to simplicity and ease of use allows for seamless integration and operation across Wasabi and Unitrends solutions through single-pane-of-glass management, ensuring that technicians aren’t spending hours managing backups.

“Organizations both small and large are facing a unique challenge as a result of ballooning data volumes being produced during the pandemic. They are looking for more flexible options to help manage their evolving data landscape while ensuring they remain in compliance with long-term retention requirements,” said Joe Noonan, General Manager at Unitrends. “Our partnership with Wasabi allows organizations to regain control of this data in a cost-effective and sustainable way.”

As cybersecurity threats continue to evolve and become increasingly sophisticated, access to strong and effective backup capabilities has become critical to any company’s data protection posture. The Wasabi-Unitrends solution allows businesses to confidently secure their data through features like Wasabi’s immutable buckets and Unitrends’ AI-based ransomware detection without increasing security costs.

“Managing what I call cold data — the infrequently-used information that is still potentially important — is incredibly burdensome for companies. It takes up valuable storage capacity and can pose security risks since it is given less attention than hot data that is being used day-in and day-out,” said Wasabi CEO & Co-Founder, David Friend. “Migrating this data to the cloud is a sensible option for any organization as it frees up capacity, reduces latency issues and provides a secure home for this valuable information. Unitrends’ commitment to providing easy-to-use and secure backup makes them an ideal partner for Wasabi as we work together to enable a new approach to long-lasting and cost-effective cloud storage.”
