Wasabi and Sidepath Partner to Improve IT Infrastructure, Simplify Cloud Storage

BOSTON, Nov. 24, 2020 — Wasabi, a hot cloud storage company, announced a new partnership with Sidepath, an IT Solutions Provider and Technology Integrator dedicated to helping clients leverage innovative enterprise technologies to better align IT and business needs. Through the new partnership, Sidepath clients — typically small and medium-sized businesses — will have access to Wasabi’s high performance, scalable and flexible cloud storage enabling greater data accessibility either as a primary or hybrid storage option. Sidepath clients will also have the ability to reduce costs and stay within budget through Wasabi’s Reserved Capacity Storage offering.

Managing and storing data has always been a headache for IT departments and this feeling has only compounded as the business world experiences a spike in enterprise technologies being deployed that only add to the flood of new data being produced every day. This data holds tremendous value but can be rendered useless without the right tools and storage infrastructure in place. Sidepath addresses this challenge by delivering solutions that greatly reduce complexity within IT infrastructure by simplifying data management, simplifying virtualization, and accelerating network performance. By partnering with Wasabi, Sidepath can expand its services to include cloud capacity allowing for expanded storage options.

“Data management and storage are our customers’ greatest IT challenges — and potential opportunities,” said Patrick Mulvee, Partner at Sidepath. “Unfortunately, traditional on-premise data centers don’t always work for a world that has begun to move to the cloud. By partnering with Wasabi, we’re able to advance our mission of simplifying our clients’ technology infrastructure by providing a flexible and easy-to-use cloud storage option that can further align their IT and business needs.”

Wasabi’s Reserved Capacity Storage is an innovative pricing model that provides further savings over the pay-as-you-go model. The offering allows users to pay upfront on a yearly basis, with the option to scale-up storage capacity as needed. In addition to being 1/5th the cost of Amazon S3 with no fees for egress or API requests while remaining markedly faster than competitors, Wasabi’s Reserved Capacity Storage allows for greater budget forecasting and peace-of-mind when coordinating cloud investment.

“We launched Wasabi after realizing that the traditional cloud storage market was in desperate need of disruption. Too often, companies were being forced into storage agreements that were unmanageable with hidden fees and rigid capacity limitations,” said Wasabi SVP of Product, Jim Donovan. “We’re excited to provide Sidepath with a new, cost-effective option, while also expanding Wasabi’s geographic reach through Sidepath’s rich network of customers.”
