Following fruitful conversations between Yannick Guillerm, Director Of Technical Marketing at Scality, and Jim Donovan, VP Product at Wasabi, the Zenko core team added support for Wasabi Hot Cloud as one of its cloud backends.
This was a fairly easy integration since Wasabi uses the standard Amazon S3 API: most of the work went into adding Wasabi to the Zenko Orbit management interface and then testing it. What this integration means is that Zenko Orbit users can now replicate data between Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage buckets and all supported backends: AWS S3, local storage, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Scality’s own RING… and more are coming.
Wasabi is a very competitive storage vendor and we believe adding it to Zenko Orbit is proof of Scality’s commitment to bring freedom and control to people who create value with data. We encourage you to check out the new integration and would love to hear what you think on our forum!
Since Zenko is an open-source project, you can influence where it goes next! Let us know what you’d like to see us support as Zenko’s next backend by opening a thread on the forum! Or you can add a new extension yourself and contribute it to the community with a pull request! Of course, we’ll be there to help every step of the way.
Let’s all welcome Wasabi to the ever-growing family of Zenko-supported data backends!
