Building on the momentum gained from its European distribution partnership with Exclusive Networks, hot cloud storage company Wasabi has opened a new storage region in London that will expand the availability and speed of its services throughout the UK.
Wasabi’s eighth storage region and second in Europe, after Amsterdam which opened in Q1 2019, is located in the Equinix Data Centre in London, which as well as making it easy for UK customers to connect to Wasabi hot cloud storage, has enough power and space for additional growth
as Wasabi scales to meet the increasing demand for storage across the UK.
According to IDC’s Worldwide Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service Market Shares, 2020 Report, the public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market in EMEA grew by 31% in 2020 as enterprises pivoted to support distributed workforces and digital interactions with customers. Wasabi hot cloud storage has redefined the industry with a solution that is one fifth of the cost of Amazon S3, with no fees for egress or API requests and no vendor lock-in. For the channel, Wasabi is simple to understand, bundle with other products and sell, for example by delivering support for immutable backups that offer the highest level of protection in cloud storage.
Denis Ferrand-Ajchenbaum, VP Global Vendor Alliances and Business Development at Exclusive Networks, said: “Wasabi has been a tremendously valuable partner to us, delivering superior performance and pricing to the market. Instant and easy access to cloud storage without extra charges for egress or API requests alleviates much of the friction enterprises face and ultimately makes the cloud storage process simpler and much more intuitive.”
