Wasabi is an object storage service, similar to services like Amazon S3 Storage, Microsoft Azure Storage, and Google Cloud Storage. The company was founded in September, 2015 and launched its cloud storage product called "Hot Storage" in May, 2017. The cloud storage product is 100% compatible with Amazon S3.
Wasabi charges by the amount of storage used at a rate of $.0039 per gigabyte per month, with no extra charges for PUTs, GETs, and other operations or pricing tiers.
Wasabi Hot Storage provides users with immutable "buckets." Data stored in an immutable bucket cannot be altered or erased, thereby eliminating the possibility of accidental or malicious loss of data.
On March 20th, 2018 Wasabi announced satellite-based cloud storage, collaborating on the SpaceBelt project to use satellites as data centers.
Wasabi was founded in 2015 by David Friend and Jeff Flowers, co-founders of Carbonite, an on-line backup service, among other companies. Wasabi is privately funded and has raised $8.9 million in May, 2017 and $10.8 million in August, 2017.
In May 2017, Wasabi launched with its hot storage cloud storage solution. Initially called "BlueArchive" at its founding, the company was later renamed to "Wasabi," after hot Japanese horseradish.
Wasabi organizes the bits on disk to minimize head movement, thereby increasing the data throughput of an individual drive, coupled with a parallelized architecture that allows data to be written to disks simultaneously. A high degree of redundancy creates data durability of eleven 9's.
Wasabi is built to be 100% AWS S3 bit-compatible with the same AWS API constructs for storage & identity management. Its system architecture and design provides average time-to-first-byte (TTFB) performance that is less than 15 ms and sustained read/write speeds in excess of 5 gbps.
Data protection & immutability
Wasabi users have the option to make their data buckets immutable. An immutable object within Wasabi cannot be deleted or modified by any individual, including system admins and Wasabi employees. Wasabi has active data integrity checking that dictates that all stored objects are read and checked for integrity every 90 days for the duration the object is stored.
Wasabi is "internally consistent", meaning that data can be written and retrieved immediately thereafter rather than "eventually consistent," meaning that data that is written may not appear to be present immediately after writing.
