Boston, MA, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announces the opening of its newest data center in Hillsboro, OR. By expanding its geographic footprint to the U.S. West Coast, Wasabi’s customers in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, as well as an expanding presence in the  Asia-Pacific region, now have closer proximity access to Wasabi’s hot cloud storage services where companies can store their data at one-fifth the cost and 6x the speed of Amazon S3 with no additional egress fees. Wasabi customers can now expect more connectivity options, additional data center redundancy, automatic data replication and failover services, and faster speeds with close proximity to their respective data centers.

In addition to its new Hillsboro data center opening, Wasabi has expanded its connectivity options to include a direct connection to the One Wilshire data center in Los Angeles, a premier and vital carrier hotel serving the western U.S. and Asia-Pacific markets. The new connection is in response to requests from the company’s growing media & entertainment customer base who look to leverage this premier location for their valuable video and data assets. 

"Wasabi is seeing significant demand from the media & entertainment industry where huge datasets are created with every movie or video in production, and their current storage facilities just can’t keep pace,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “Wasabi’s new US West Coast data center is an ideal cloud storage solution for West Coast companies as well as a preliminary way for Wasabi to serve the Asia/Pacific market as we continue to expand our global footprint."

"Wasabi's direct connection to One Wilshire Boulevard is ideal for Southern California’s Los Angeles-based studios, broadcasters, and media companies to manage and access assets in a cloud based workflow whenever they need it, as fast as they need it," according to Patrick Kennedy, Co-Founder and CEO of Acembly, a Wasabi partner and innovator in media and cloud infrastructure management. "Wasabi and Acembly are changing the complexion of the cloud storage industry, making it an underlying utility for the entertainment industry’s move to the cloud as a low-cost, efficient production tool.”
