The list of available cloud storage services in CloudBerry Drive already encompasses most major players on the market. Today we welcome the newcomer into the cloud storage world — Wasabi. In this article, we explain how you can use Wasabi as your backup destination of choice in CloudBerry Drive.
Wasabi is the newcomer in the world of cloud storage providers. It's 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 Drive.
Wasabi in CloudBerry Drive
Wasabi can be added as a backup destination in CloudBerry Drive starting from version 2.4 onward. To do that, right-click on CloudBerry Drive's icon in the System Tray and click Options.
In the newly appeared window, in the Storage Accounts tab, click Add.
In the drop-down menu, select Wasabi.
Next, specify the display name for your to-be-mounted disk, enter your Wasabi credentials, select the appropriate checkboxes, and click OK.
Having added the cloud storage account, proceed to mount a disk. In the Mapped Drives tab, click Add.
Now let's mount the disk. Select Wasabi as the storage account, specify the drive letter, volume label, and the cloud path. Select the appropriate checkboxes and click OK.
Shortly, CloudBerry Drive will mount the disk, and it'll eventually appear in the File Explorer.
Now you can work with your cloud files through the File Explorer interface. Copy & paste, drag-and-drop are supported, as usual.
Similarly, we're about to add the support for Wasabi in the MBS Web Console. Stay tuned for that!
