Here at CloudBerry Lab we always strive to stay up-to-date with the industry's latest developments. With that in mind, we've decided to bring the support for Wasabi cloud storage across our product line-up. If you've been following our blog lately, you know that it's already supported in CloudBerry Backup, Explorer, and Drive. Today we conclude the implementation of the novelty by bringing it to CloudBerry Backup 2.0.2 for macOS & Linux.
Wasabi is the newcomer in the world of cloud storage providers. It's an S3-compatible cloud storage with rather impressive characteristics. They claim to outperform Amazon S3 in the speed department while costing less than Amazon Glacier. Even though Wasabi has been on the market for a mere month, we're glad to announce that we now natively support them in our flagship backup solution. So you should be able to get swifter transfer speeds at a lower cost, in theory. You should probably refer to their website so as to examine whether they meet your backup requirements. Their main advantage is simplicity. Unlike the big three — Amazon, Google, and Microsoft — Wasabi does not have storage tiers, which clearly simplifies your interaction with their service. S3-compatibility, lack of storage tiers, affordable fees, and high transfer speeds should help Wasabi become the go-to cloud storage service for many companies. Now let's see how you can take advantage of Wasabi in CloudBerry Backup 2.0.2 for macOS & Linux.
Support for Wasabi
Wasabi can be added as a backup destination in CloudBerry Backup for macOS & Linux starting from version 2.0.2 onward. To do that, launch the app and go into Settings. Under Storage, click Wasabi.
Enter your credentials and specify the bucket and click OK. If necessary, specify the Advanced settings.
Splendid. Now you can select Wasabi as your backup destination of choice when configuring backup plans.
The process is identical on both macOS & Linux.
Support for Google Cloud London region
Another small improvement worth mentioning is the support for Google Cloud London region. In fact, we now support all Google regions, so you can select those locations that best suit you in terms of transfer speeds and the accompanying costs.
Our team is currently laboring on a major release — version 2.1 — stay tuned for that!
