Edge Computing

Edge computing is the delivery of various computing capabilities with the intent of improving performance, reducing operating costs, and increasing the reliability of vital applications and services.

Wasabi’s Edge Computing Solutions

With traditional centralized systems architectures, data is backhauled and processed in the cloud, but with the increased performance demands of the modern era, many enterprises and service providers are moving to decentralized systems that push specific data processing functions to the edge of the network. These new edge compute gateways and servers aggregate, process, and analyze data at the periphery of the enterprise or service network provider, resulting in a plethora of functional benefits.

By partnering with innovative companies like Equinix, Flexential, and many others, Wasabi is able to introduce on-demand Edge-Computing-as-a-Service solutions that are extremely affordable, fast, and reliable. And since it’s all stored in Wasabi’s hot cloud, these solutions are ideal for companies looking to store massive datasets at the core of a smart system.

Egress Charges

Most leading cloud providers allow their customers to input data into the cloud for free. However, when that data is retrieved from the cloud, these providers will then charge large fees; this is what’s known as a data egress.

What Does Wasabi Think of Egress Charges?

Egress charges have long been one of the biggest inhibitors to companies wanting to move their data into (and out of) the cloud, and that’s because these charges make it virtually impossible to predict how much money will actually be spent to effectively manage data.

While all the other leading object storage vendors still charge their customers to retrieve data from storage, Wasabi has made it a point to eliminate all egress fees. By getting rid of all these and other hidden charges that are all-too-commonly associated with cloud storage, we’re helping to increase transparency for our customers, while eliminating unpredictable, frustrating, and complex access expenses.

An exabyte is a multiple of a byte, which is the unit of file size for storing digital information. Since exa indicates multiplication by the sixth power of 1,000, an exabyte is equal to one quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000) bytes or 1,000 petabytes (or 1,000,000 terabytes). 

Why would my company need an exabyte of storage?

Big Data is growing exponentially. In 2006, the world was generating 161 exabytes of data each year. Just 14 years later, we churn out an additional 2.5 exabytes of data every single day. And while we’re producing loads of data now, it’s nothing compared to what’s coming—for example, storage for the media and entertainment industry alone is projected to grow about 13.3x between 2017 and 2023, and the storage capacity for human genome data is estimated to reach 40 exabytes by 2025.

An organization’s ability to compete will increasingly depend on its ability to mine ever larger datasets, most of it unstructured, to gain valuable insights.

Wasabi hot cloud storage provides inexpensive, high-performance, exabyte-scale cloud storage. With our single-tier approach, there’s no issue of traditional multi-tier implementations and agonizing price/performance decisions. All data stored in Wasabi is active and readily available at prices that are 80% cheaper than AWS S3.
