BaaS is a middleware model that provides various APIs for web and mobile apps to simplify the work that needs to be done by developers. Because of this, BaaS can be thought of as a streamlined, out-of-the-box platform solution that automates backend development procedures by outsourcing many of the server maintenance responsibilities to a third party.
Wasabi’s Hot Cloud BaaS Solutions
The BaaS model is convenient because it gives developers an easier path for linking their web and mobile applications to their backend cloud storage solutions. In the case of cloud service providers like Wasabi, BaaS is made instantly compatible with hundreds of third-party solutions and in-house applications designed to work with Amazon S3 and other leading APIs.
Thanks to Wasabi, managed service providers and other customers who choose to bundle Wasabi with their backup cloud recovery solutions are realizing how easy it is to compete on price and increase their margins.

While conventional data backup methods are centralized and often performed on-premise, BaaS offers an alternate approach. Companies using BaaS purchase backup services from an outside provider who then manages that data and connects it to a cloud for easy accessibility and added protection.
Streamline Your Data Backup Processes with BaaS
As a company’s data becomes an increasingly essential part of its survival, traditional backup methods simply do not have the capacity to be considered a viable solution anymore. Nonetheless, it’s still critical that data is always backed up in the event of a disaster.
In the past, this meant relying on racks of expensive internal storage server backups and IT specialists, but the “as-a-service” revolution changed all that. Now, thanks to cloud technology, data backup can be managed by an outside service provider for much less than the annual cost of on-premises storage.
By partnering with global backup leaders like Veeam, Wasabi is able to cut storage costs by 80% or more via automatic cloud BaaS services. This frees companies from the demands of legacy backup methods, such as the need for endless on-site upkeep. In addition, having data backed up off-site provides a great way to protect organizational infrastructure in the event of an emergency.
Since the advent of personal computers, smart devices, and the internet, there’s been an explosion in the amount of data generated on a daily basis. “Big Data” refers to the collection of all this data, as well as our ability to leverage it to meet modern business demands.
A Cloud Storage Solution Built for Big Data
While we’re producing lots of data today, it’s nothing compared to what’s coming. That’s because some of the greatest contributors to the data output of the next 50 years will be from industries that are still in their infancy today.
As the years pass, an organization’s ability to compete will increasingly depend on its ability to mine ever-growing datasets for valuable insights. Cloud object storage, with its extreme capacity and elasticity, is ideal for addressing Big Data storage requirements. The problem, however, is that many cloud storage tiers can get very expensive, while low-cost storage options are simply too slow to provide much value.
With pricing that’s 80% less expensive than major competitors – and performance that’s much faster – Wasabi is the perfect fit for Big Data storage requirements. Wasabi is also secure and infinitely scalable, making it even more ideal for the management and analysis of Big Data whether today, tomorrow or decades from now.
“The Bottomless Cloud” is a book written by Tom Koulopoulos and Wasabi CEO, David Friend. In it, Koulopoulos and Friend argue that people should stop examining the world through an outdated “scarcity” lens and instead seek out the endless opportunities offered up by a cloud-empowered world of infinite data.
Untapping the Potential of the Bottomless Cloud
Electric power and the evolution of utilities fueled the growth of industrialization throughout the 20th century. That’s exactly what’s happening today as an unimaginable amount of data is moving into the cloud where it will fuel the next big revolution in AI and machine learning. However, most people are still using the antiquated industrial age lens that was built on the economics of scarcity.
The major issue with this scarcity model is that the storage of data is still being viewed as something to be minimized. However, the new way to look at data storage is to keep everything in a literally endless (or bottomless) cloud, then focus on new ways to extract value knowing that all data is kept in perpetuity. In time, data storage will become a cheap and abundant resource that powers everything – in other words, a “Bottomless Cloud.”
A bucket is a logical software container to store objects. Wasabi stores objects (folders and files) in buckets. Once you create a storage bucket, you can upload objects into the bucket. You can create up to 1000 buckets per account.
