Console Connect and Wasabi Technologies to support businesses with fast and secure cloud migration and multi-cloud provisioning

HKT (SEHK: 6823) – LONDON, April 2024 – Console Connect, a leading network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform, and Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, have agreed to collaborate to help businesses deploy fast and secure cloud migration and multi-cloud provisioning worldwide.

The collaboration brings together the enhanced network security, performance and scalability of the Console Connect platform and Wasabi’s low-cost, fast and predictable cloud storage on-demand to support seamless on premise-to-cloud migration and cloud-to-cloud migration as well as instant multi-cloud provisioning.

With vast amounts of data being generated by AI, machine learning, data lakes and computer vision, the networking requirements of cloud migration projects are becoming increasingly complex for businesses.

The public Internet is no longer reliable or secure enough to manage the migration of large volumes of sensitive data, while private networking can be inflexible and costly. The relationship between Wasabi and Console Connect provides a cost-effective way for businesses to manage, store and move cloud data using a private, high-performance global network.

The collaboration takes advantage of Console Connect’s Layer 3 CloudRouter® multi-cloud on-demand solution, meaning businesses can connect seamlessly between Wasabi and other leading cloud and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms. It gives businesses a full plug-and-play solution for their storage and cloud-based services that allows them to easily combine the offerings of multiple cloud providers with Wasabi’s on-demand storage.

Console Connect’s network is integrated with three key Wasabi Storage Regions in Europe, Asia and North America, enabling businesses to use simple point and click networking provisioning to access these locations. CloudRouter® can be accessed from devices, enterprise locations and data centres worldwide, broadening Wasabi’s reach to more businesses.

Console Connect operates a flexible pay-as-you-go model that allows businesses to take greater control over their cloud costs by only paying for the connectivity and storage they use. Furthermore, Wasabi’s high-performance storage is less expensive than traditional cloud providers with no fees for egress or API requests.

With lead times for migrating on-prem storage to the cloud typically being weeks or even months, Console Connect and Wasabi storage can be spun-up and available in a matter of minutes.

For businesses looking to switch from another cloud provider to Wasabi, CloudRouter® can be used to create a high-speed temporary link between both cloud providers, or it can be configured for back-up and redundancy connectivity between Wasabi and another cloud provider.

“Network performance and security are paramount to any cloud migration projects. The combination of Console Connect and Wasabi empowers businesses with more flexible cloud connectivity and storage, making it easier than ever before to manage the migration of sensitive cloud data and giving peace of mind to businesses throughout their cloud migration projects. Whether it’s from devices, enterprise buildings or data centres, Console Connect is bringing businesses closer to Wasabi cloud while ensuring they bypass the pitfalls of the public Internet,” said Michael Glynn, SVP, Digital Automated Innovation, Console Connect.

“Wasabi values important global partners like Console Connect who bring leading IT solutions to organisations, helping their cloud operations and driving business transformation,” said Laurie Mitchell, SVP of Global Marketing, Wasabi. “Businesses can now take advantage of Wasabi’s predictably priced, high-performance cloud storage easier than ever with Console Connect’s fully automated switching and routing. Console Connect users taking advantage of Wasabi cloud storage benefit from no fees for egress or API requests.”
