Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager (WCSM) enables you to replicate or copy your data between Wasabi regions or from other clouds to Wasabi.



Why WCSM?

With Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager (WCSM) is a set of data services that provide:

  • Replication of buckets across Wasabi storage regions within the same continent.
  • Data migration from any S3-compliant storage to the Wasabi cloud.

WCSM has an intuitive administrative interface featuring customizable dashboards and built-in pricing analytics. This makes it easy to estimate costs, configure storage parameters, and move and replicate data to optimize cost, performance, and protection.

To sign up for WCSM for data migration, refer to Signing Up for WCSM—Cloud Migration. Then, continue with WCSM for Data Migration.

Supported Use Cases of WCSM

WCSM can be used to perform the following types of data transfers:

  • Wasabi to Wasabi bucket continuous replication
  • Wasabi to Wasabi one time seed data replication
  • Migration of data between Wasabi regions or from other clouds to Wasabi

Installation

You do not need to install new software in your environment. You just need an Internet browser and Internet connection to access the WCSM service.

Cost Associated with WCSM

There is no cost associated with using the WCSM service for Wasabi bucket replication feature other than the cost associated with added storage consumption in the user’s Wasabi account due to replication of data.

The cloud to cloud migration service has migration charges associated with it. The majority of these charges are rendered to the cloud vendor where the data currently resides, as part of their egress fees. However, due to the way WCSM is architected, the customer will not incur any egress fees directly from the hyperscaler. The migration charges from Wasabi are also typically much lower than the egress fees hyperscalers charge customers.
