Wasabi and Dell Join Forces: Hybrid Cloud Storage Protects Valuable Data

By Greg Tavarez

The information age has seen a data explosion, to say the least. Businesses generate massive amounts of information and are creating a crucial need for reliable and affordable storage. A big issue is that traditional on-premises storage solutions struggle to keep pace with this growth, often becoming expensive and cumbersome to manage.

This is where cloud storage steps in. Cloud providers offer vast, scalable storage capacity that eliminates the need for physical servers and their ongoing maintenance. This translates into better cost savings for organizations.

Cloud storage also excels in data backup and disaster recovery. Data is replicated across geographically dispersed servers just in case of hardware failure or natural disasters. This lets businesses quickly restore critical information to minimize downtime.

In that vein, Wasabi Technologies, the "hot cloud storage company," recently announced a collaboration with Dell, via the Extended Technologies Complete program, to bring affordable and innovative hybrid cloud solutions for backup, data protection and long-term retention to customers.

Wasabi's goal? To make secure and reliable data storage affordable and accessible for everyone. Unlike other providers, Wasabi avoids hidden fees and doesn't lock customers into their system. This lets customers choose the best tools for their needs and integrate them seamlessly with Wasabi.

The main reason for the collaboration with Dell is to further address the challenge around efficient and cost-effective storage solutions. The Wasabi-Dell collaboration provides flexible, efficient hybrid cloud solutions that let users optimize their data management processes while simultaneously reducing overall costs.

"Dell is a clear industry leader with a broad and deep portfolio of transformative technology,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO at Wasabi Technologies. "This collaboration will extend the reach of Wasabi's cloud storage to a broader audience, catering to users in search of a dependable, economical solutions for safeguarding their data archives over the long haul."

Dell offers a data protection system that combines on-site storage with long-term cloud backups. Their PowerProtect Data Domain appliances can automatically move less-used data to Wasabi cloud storage, which is a cost-effective option for long-term archives.

This solution is also compatible with Dell's NetWorker software. Existing NetWorker users leverage Wasabi's cloud storage through CloudBoost for their long-term data retention needs. 

Overall, this Dell and Wasabi partnership provides a complete data protection strategy for businesses.

“The collaboration between Wasabi Technologies and Dell Technologies presents a powerful solution for organizations grappling with data growth,” said Dave McCarthy, Research Vice President at IDC. “Organizations need a hybrid cloud infrastructure that is efficient and cost-effective, and that has the ability to scale with them during their data management journey. This collaboration meets these challenges head-on.”
