Support for Wasabi storage in CloudBerry Backup & Explorer

The list of available cloud storage services in CloudBerry Backup already encompasses most major players on the market. Today we welcome the newcomer in the cloud storage world — Wasabi. In this article we discuss how you can use Wasabi as your backup destination of choice in CloudBerry products.

Introduction

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 products.

Signing up for Wasabi

Signing up for Wasabi really takes no more than a few minutes. Head over to their website, and click TRY IT FREE on the home page. 

Enter your name, email, and click Start your Free Trial. The confirmation email will be sent to you immediately.

Once you receive the email, click Create Account.

You will be redirected to the final sign up page where you'll need to come up with a password. Ensure that it's secure so as to avoid headache in the future.

You will then finally reach the dashboard. The first thing you need to do is to create a Access/Secret key pair. On the left sidebar, click Access Keys. Then click Create New Access Key.

The key pair will automatically be created, whereupon you can download them in the CSV format or just straight copy them to clipboard.

Now that you have the credentials, it's time to add them in CloudBerry Backup.

Wasabi in CloudBerry Backup

Wasabi can be added as a backup destination in CloudBerry Backup starting from version 5.6.1 onward. To do so, click Add New Account on the main toolbar.

In the freshly appeared cloud storage options, select Wasabi.

Enter your credentials, specify the bucket and click OK.

Splendid. Now you can select Wasabi as your backup destination of choice when configuring backup plans.

Wasabi in CloudBerry Explorer

The process of adding Wasabi in Explorer is pretty simple and similar to that of CloudBerry Backup. Ensure that the version of your Explorer is not lower than 5.2. Go ahead and launch Explorer. Under File, point to New S3 Compatible Account, and click Wasabi.

Enter your credentials, specify the bucket and click OK.

Having done that, you can go ahead and access all your files within your Wasabi storage.

Similarly, we're about to add the support for Wasabi in CloudBerry Drive and MBS Web Console. Stay tuned for that!
