FileShadow Partners with Wasabi to Provide Multi-Cloud Services for Its Cloud File Assurance ServiceJuly 20, 2018
FileShadow today ushers in multi-cloud storage options for its customers with a partnership with Wasabi, a hot cloud storage company. By adding Wasabi to FileShadow’s cloud file assurance service, individuals and small businesses with document intensive needs, such as photographers, creatives, insurance agents or agencies, financial services and municipalities, will have the option of choosing both the file processing and cloud storage system that best fits their performance and pricing needs.
FileShadow connects users’ cloud storage accounts and onsite network attached storage (NAS) into a single vault, making their files instantly searchable regardless of source and "available for a lifetime." The service supports both online and onsite systems, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Adobe Creative Cloud and Drobo NAS appliances. With the addition of Wasabi, FileShadow customers can choose the file storage services from either Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, Google Cloud Storage or IBM Cloud Object Storage.
"The Wasabi partnership brings multi-cloud to FileShadow’s service," said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. "The multi-cloud approach to file archiving, backup and restore gives the customer options that meet their needs for features, performance, durability and price point."
Wasabi, founded by former Carbonite executives, is known for offering a storage plan with no egress fees, freeing IT departments to focus on only one budget line item-storage. Wasabi hot cloud storage is 80 percent cheaper and six times faster than Amazon S3.
"Wasabi has been fundamentally transforming storage with the industry’s lowest-priced and fastest-performing cloud storage solution, and we are excited to partner with FileShadow, which is disrupting the way users deal with their disparate consumer cloud storage such as Dropbox and Google Drive," said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. "This partnership is a synergy of two companies changing the paradigm of how users approach their cloud storage."
FileShadow does not replace Drobo or any of the popular cloud storage vendors. Instead, it assures immediate searchability, availability and protection of files stored in these sources by archiving each generation of every file. Using Google Cloud Vision API service, it detects characteristics of a file or image stored in any of the user’s cloud accounts and Drobo appliances. The API classifies images into numerous categories available for FileShadow’s integrated search engine. With this API, FileShadow creates extensive searchable metadata on each file, its content and location (GPS), as well as Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and vision tags for scanned images, helping users find any file in any cloud storage location in just seconds.
FileShadow is showcasing the integration of the Google Compute Engine, Google Vision API, Google Maps API, Google OCR API, and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage at Google Cloud Next ‘18 in San Francisco, July 24-26. To see a demo of how this integration helps prosumers and SMB customers manage and protect their files, visit booth W2307 at the event or go to www.FileShadow.com.
"FileShadow is one of the first to bring machine learning to the mass market through Google’s advanced API," Pike said. "Through the power of Google and the unique file assurance service from FileShadow, users can perform powerful file analysis and discovery through simple searches."
FileShadow Service is available free of charge through Sept. 30, 2018. The current trial offer covers free cloud file assurance for up to 1TB and utilizes Google for file processing and Wasabi for storage-the first example of FileShadow multi-cloud services. The option to manually choose file processing and cloud storage vendors will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
