Machine Learning

Machine learning is essentially a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that uses algorithms to “learn” from a set of data to either draw conclusions or make predictions from it, all without the need for humans to write complex code to help it along.

Why is Machine Learning Important?

Machine learning applications are used throughout a variety of industries, including life sciences where it helps with things like human genome sequencing, the energy sector where it helps with predictive maintenance, and law enforcement where agencies utilize it to predict crime levels and help with resource allocation.

As businesses within these and many other fields continue to increase automation and the pace of their innovations as a result of machine learning, more and more are learning that traditional on-premises storage platforms and first-generation cloud storage services like Amazon S3 are far too costly for many machine-learning projects. That’s primarily due to the massive datasets that have to be maintained for machines to learn efficiently.

With Wasabi, however, customers get cloud storage that’s 80% cheaper than S3, with no confusing or hidden fees. As a result, Wasabi is a fast, commodity-priced storage solution that’s ideal for machine data storage.

Managed Service Provider (MSP)

The world of IT and cloud computing, managed service providers (MSPs) represent the company or vendor that oversees, or manages, an organization’s IT infrastructure or end-user systems. These services are typically contracted via a subscription service model where the MSP proactively manages all the IT over the internet, often leveraging cloud technologies to deliver these services. As such, “cloud service providers” and “managed service providers” are often considered synonymous, though the scope of services they both offer does not overlap completely (for instance, selling on-premises hardware).

Cloud Opportunities for Managed Service Providers

The rapid digitization of business is creating change on a massive scale. This change means enormous new opportunities for managed service providers whose primary sales proposition is hiding complexity for their customers and making it easier for them to consume technology. Now, more than ever, forward-thinking MSPs are leveraging the cloud to find a modern, scalable solution to their business needs – and the word is spreading.

The Many Benefits of Wasabi for Managed Service Providers

When it comes to cloud storage solutions, managed service providers love Wasabi in particular for a number of reasons. Wasabi provides simple, high-performance public cloud storage that’s faster than Amazon S3 and other leading competitors. But that’s not all.

Wasabi’s simple pricing setup means costs are transparent and kept to a minimum: no tiers, no hidden fees for egress or API requisitions – just one simple, affordable price. As well, Wasabi’s reserved-capacity storage model makes buying cloud storage a natural addition to MSP on-premises storage.

Data management is also incredibly simple since no difficult decisions have to be made regarding where to store data – it’s all on one tier! Now, there’s an affordable, fast way for MSPs to store all their data in the cloud, allowing MSPs to transform their data from a commodity into a strategic competitive advantage.

Multi-Cloud Strategy

A multi-cloud strategy is the strategic use of more than one cloud provider. Usually, a multi-cloud strategy consists of two or more public clouds, but it can also be a combination of private and public clouds.

Why consider a Multi-Cloud Strategy?

Because different departments, use cases and applications may have different requirements, a multi-cloud strategy provides flexibility in selecting the right cloud for the right job.

Using a multi-cloud will protect your company and its data in the rare instance that one of the clouds fails. It also provides you the safety of not being locked into any single cloud vendor, held ransom by their business model and the hidden fees that make up so many of the big names in public cloud computing.

You can use Wasabi hot cloud storage as part of a multi-cloud implementation to improve choice and avoid vendor lock-in. Wasabi offers direct private or public network connectivity to AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and other popular IaaS and PaaS platforms through partnerships with leading colocation, carrier hotel and exchange providers like Equinix, Flexential and Limelight Networks.
