With Microsoft Office 365, there is a shared responsibility model. It’s your data — you control it — and it is your responsibility to protect it. So you’ve decided to backup your Office 365 data in the cloud, but there are many clouds to choose from – and not all clouds are created equal. Many of the big name cloud providers that you may be inclined to consider sound good at first but in reality have hidden fees that make for complicated, unpredictable bills and unwelcome surprises of egress and API request fees every month. Rumor has it you need a PhD in cloud storage billing analytics or to hire a team of consultants to decipher your monthly data storage bills!
Not true with Wasabi hot cloud storage. Wasabi makes cloud storage simple for customers and partners. Wasabi is simple, predictable, affordable, Veeam Ready S3 compatible object storage that works seamlessly with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.
There’s a reason why Wasabi is the fastest growing cloud storage company who now boasts over 25,000 customers and 5,000 channel partners globally. And why Wasabi is by far the most widely deployed cloud storage destination for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.
Actually there are 5 reasons!
Reason 1: Price

Wasabi offers a bottomless vault for data, ensuring that companies never need to worry about what data to save and what data to delete. With Wasabi you can save it all at a super affordable price.

The ability to store more data for less is crucial in a business ecosystem that values data more than ever before. Additionally, a lightened load on a business’ storage budget frees up time and capital for other, more important things.
