Blazingly Fast, Amazingly Affordable Cloud Storage

Data growth is spiraling out of control—doubling every year in many industries—becoming a major challenge for many organizations. Traditional on-site data storage platforms are too costly to scale and maintain. And first-generation cloud storage services are too expensive and slow for many applications. The FileCatalyst and Wasabi integration helps organizations overcome cloud storage cost and performance barriers, and tackle skyrocketing data growth. Wasabi hot storage is incredibly affordable and reliable cloud object storage for any purpose. And FileCatalyst is an accelerated file transfer platform that lets you move massive files in and out of Wasabi at full-line speed. The integrated solution delivers breakthrough cloud storage economics and performance for data-intensive applications.

FileCatalyst Delivers Line-Rate Perfomance

Legacy file transfer protocols and tools are no longer effective in the era of big data and cloud computing. Traditional connection-oriented protocols like FTP squander bandwidth (each packet is individually transmitted and acknowledged) and are susceptible to network latency and packet loss. Using FTP, it can take hours or even days to transfer multi-gigabyte files.

FileCatalyst was designed from the ground up with big data and the cloud in mind. The innovative platform leverages a patented connectionless file transfer technology that avoids protocol overhead while ensuring reliable and secure delivery. Immune to latency and packet loss, FileCatalyst transfers files at speeds of up to 10 Gbps, reducing transfer times down to minutes, or even seconds, for the largest of data sets.

Based on a client-server architecture, FileCatalyst supports a variety of client interfaces including Wasabi’s S3 API, desktop user interfaces, browser-based interfaces with REST APIs, a scriptable CLI, and an SDK for integration with third-party applications.

Wasabi Hot Storage Delivers Breakthrough Economics and Simplicity

Wasabi is the world’s most affordable cloud storage service. Specifically conceived to make cloud storage a commonplace utility like electricity, Wasabi hot storage is easy to understand, easy to order and incredibly cost-effective to scale. With Wasabi, there are no confusing cloud storage tiers to decipher and no complicated fee structures to decode.

Engineered for extreme data integrity and security, Wasabi provides eleven 9s object durability and supports configurable data immutability to protect against accidental deletions, ransomware, and viruses, and to ensure regulatory compliance.

Use Case

Wasabi hot storage, coupled with FileCatalyst accelerated file transfer technology, is ideal for a wide range of applications including:

  • Fast, low-cost primary storage for on-premises workloads and application data
  • Cost-effective secondary storage with accelerated transfer speeds for backup and data migration initiatives
  • Affordable and reliable archival storage for compliance and long-term data retention

With FileCatalyst you can transfer files in and out of Wasabi at up to 10 Gbps over the public internet or a Wasabi Direct Connect connection.

Results

  • Slash storage costs and eliminate complexities
  • Accelerate storage performance for data-intensive applications
  • Move multi-gigabyte files in and out of the cloud in minutes or seconds
  • Reduce risk and exposure to data loss
