Wasabi & Quest Software Partner to Deliver Cost-Effective Cloud StorageJanuary 21, 2020
Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announced a partnership with Quest Software to leverage cost-effective cloud storage directly through the Quest QoreStor user interface. The World Economic Forum predicts that the accumulated digital universe will reach 44 zettabytes in the coming year, representing a staggering 10x jump from 2019. The Wasabi and Quest partnership gives customers the ability to seamlessly backup to cloud object storage and reduce the uncertainty of cloud recovery costs while delivering breakthrough economics and performance.
Wasabi provides a universal, one-size-fits-all cloud object storage service that eliminates confusing storage tiers and satisfies nearly all storage performance requirements – all at a lower price and faster speed than traditional storage services – and with no costs for the egress of data or API requests. Its single tier of hot storage allows for all data to be accessed in an instant, creating an “active archive” of data. With Wasabi, storage bills never fluctuate with data retrieval volumes. The combination of low cost storage and the advanced recovery technology built into QoreStor speeds the recovery of cloud-stored data so businesses can get their systems back up and running faster, and for less cost.
“Data is growing and enterprises need to store data economically, however, effectively managing cloud storage has become one of the toughest challenges IT teams face today. Together, Wasabi and Quest will deliver breakthrough economics and performance to its customers and accelerate both backups and recovery while reducing the cloud footprint,” shares Jim Donovan, SVP, Product at Wasabi.
Once Wasabi is enabled as a cloud tier option directly in the QoreStor user interface, backups become faster, shorter and easier. Customers can deduplicate data, and compress and encrypt data using QoreStor before sending the data to Wasabi’s storage user interface. Additionally, customers can reduce OpEx by optimizing cloud storage and paying as they grow, storing nearly any amount of data including data for applications without an object interface, like Oracle RMAN. “We’re committed to delivering solutions to market that address an organizations’ toughest backup and recovery challenges,” said Adrian Moir, Senior Consultant, Product Management & Lead Technology Evangelist, Quest Data Protection business “Incorporating the Wasabi cloud service within Quest QoreStor, global customers are empowered to easily and affordably connect to the cloud for data archiving and faster disaster recovery, accelerate backup performance through protocol accelerators, and reduce storage requirements and costs through content-aware, variable block deduplication.”
