The newly initiated collaboration between Scale Computing and Wasabi Technologies makes it possible for businesses to deploy and manage hundreds of sites effectively using cloud-like orchestration for hybrid cloud storage, archiving, and backup. On the IT infrastructure software platform from Scale Computing, Wasabi offers a low-cost cloud storage target for mass data collection so businesses may gather and store data as needed.
“Data collection is increasing exponentially every year across every industry,” said Scott Mann, Vice President of Sales, ROW & Global Channel Chief, Scale Computing. “Video surveillance, IoT sensors, and even legacy applications have the ability to collect more real-time data. This has led to an ever-increasing number of business requirements surrounding data retention and with it, unmanageable data storage costs. This partnership empowers enterprises to run their business-critical applications on Scale Computing alongside the cost-effective public cloud offering from Wasabi. As an enterprise grows, the new solution offers capacity scalability, plus the performance benefits of a hybrid cloud.”
For operating applications locally, Scale Computing software would offer a powerful IT infrastructure option. Applications may be easily executed everywhere, and the stress on IT personnel would be decreased thanks to lightweight, efficient software that is packaged for uncontrolled, non-IT environments and managed centrally.
Both traditional data center and edge computing environments operating on Scale Computing get additional data storage options suited to fit an organization’s budget with the addition of Wasabi hot cloud storage as a data retention and preservation destination. With no fees for egress or API requests, all Scale Computing and Wasabi clients can treat their data as hot data to reduce upload windows and instantly access it for quicker downloads.
Enterprises can advance the hybrid/multi-cloud environment for data-intensive video surveillance, IoT, and business applications with the new storage management solution, all while avoiding significant egress costs related to data retention requirements for business-critical applications that demand significant amounts of data collection and retention. Whether on-premises or in the cloud, businesses can start with what they need and grow capacity and performance fast, lowering the cost and complexity of cloud storage.
“By combining industry-leading, on-premises edge computing with easy-to-use cloud data retention and archival, we’re creating the ideal, agile hybrid cloud environment that today’s organizations need,” said David Boland, Vice President of Cloud Strategy at Wasabi Technologies. “Wasabi’s solution is 80 percent less expensive and is faster than first-generation cloud vendors, while Scale Computing has a strong reputation for delivering results to leading businesses around the world. We’re thrilled to be partnering with them.”
