Safety and Security

11 x 9 data durability and highly scalable to protect data.

Wasabi is an Amazon S3 compatible, highly secure, durable, fast read/write, and affordable cloud object storage. (Take out: with no data transfer fees.)

Wasabi does not charge for data transfer (downstream/upstream) or API usage. Other services typically charge by the amount of data transferred or API usage, making it difficult to predict the total cost required and to meet a set budget. In contrast, Wasabi’s reserved-capacity storage model is based on a flat rate that is determined by the amount of data used, making it possible to operate within a pre-determined budget.

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage is a cloud service that is not only affordable, but also offers high performance, quality, and security. As a major cloud storage service, its use is increasing significantly worldwide.

Product Features

Reserved capacity storage

  • Wasabi Reserved Capacity Storage (RCS, Reserved Capacity Storage) allows users to purchase unlimited storage capacity in advance, starting at 25TB for a period of 1 to 5 years. The capacity is the same for each region, so a 50TB purchase can be split between Tokyo (30TB), Osaka (10TB), and North America (10TB).
  • Wasabi is SOC-2, ISO 27001, and PCI-DSS certified, providing a secure, redundant, and reliable service.
  • You can specify the region where your data is stored.  For example, in Japan you can specify Tokyo or Osaka.
  • Downloads (egress) are free of charge to the extent that they are considered reasonable usage. For example, monthly egress is considered reasonable if it is less than or equal to the active storage volume. Please refer to Wasabi’s Free Egress Policy for more details.
  • Files under 4KB are considered to be using 4KB of space.
  • The minimum retention policy is 30 days.

S3 Compatible API

Full support for AWS S3 and IAM APIs, allowing you to use AWS S3 applications without any modifications.

Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager

Free inter-region transfers (bucket transfers) within the same continent.  So for example, a user could transfer a bucket from Singpore to Tokyo free of charge. There is no limit to the number of transfers. In addition, data can be transferred from other cloud services. (data transfer fees from other services may be charged).

Ransomware Countermeasures

Wasabi Object Lock

Object lock Protects against user mistakes, ransomware and malware. Users designate certain files or objects to be immutable. After which, they cannot be modified or deleted by anyone until the retention period has expired.

Wasabi Account Control Manager (WACM)

A GUI tool is provided for account management. You can check active and deleted storage, identify API requests, check egress, and keep track of the number of stored and deleted objects.

WACM Connect API

The API can be used to retrieve information such as storage usage, capacity that does not meet the minimum retention policy, storage read/write volume, ingress/egress, etc.

Wasabi Direct Connect (optional feature)

Where available, you can connect to Wasabi with a 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s high-speed private line from an affiliated telecommunications service. There is an additional cost to use this service. Please contact us for the further information.

Crime prevention and security services

Crime prevention and security services

In recent years, in addition to fixed cameras, police officers and others are increasingly equipped with body cameras, but the biggest challenge is the storage of video data: video data per camera must be stored for a mandated period of time, from many cameras for evidence, or for facial recognition from a large bank of data for identifying the perpetrator. Data must be stored intensively for a long period of time, and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage is several percent less expensive than other services, and being a single-tier platform, data can be accessed more quickly than other services, whenever it is needed for analysis.
