Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Now Available to the Public Sector on Carahsoft SEWP V, NCPA Contracts

Wasabi and Carahsoft Technology Corp. announced a partnership to target the public sector as well as reseller partners.

Under the agreement, Carahsoft will make Wasabi’s high-performance cloud storage service available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V and National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) contracts and the company’s broad base of reseller partners.

Government IT professionals are expected to deliver the same type of innovative new services as the private sector. Secure cloud storage provides a scalable alternative to maintaining expensive servers, disk and tape drives. Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), including cloud storage, reduces operating expenses, helps understaffed organizations reduce the burden of managing infrastructure, and enables intra- and inter-agency collaboration and consolidation of resources. Public sector agencies that have recently upgraded or migrated their data centers are increasingly turning to cloud storage for backup and offsite data protection in the event of a natural disaster or cyberattack.

“Carahsoft is one of the fastest growing technology solution and distribution providers in the nation. By combining Wasabi’s disruptive cloud storage technology with Carahsoft’s extensive understanding of government procurement processes and the public sector, agencies and resellers can now receive the best possible value in cloud storage,” said David Friend, Wasabi CEO.

Wasabi hot cloud storage offers the pricing, performance and ease of use to address the challenges faced by agency IT professionals today. Wasabi offers a single tier of high-performance storage with no fees for egress, API requests or data management activity. All content stored on Wasabi is immediately accessible so the service can be used in the most demanding conditions.

“We are proud to partner with Wasabi to meet our public sector customers’ and reseller partners’ evolving data needs with top-of-the-line multicloud storage,” said Joe Tabatabaian, Manager of the team that supports Wasabi at Carahsoft. “As agencies pursue their modernization goals, the flexibility and scale of cloud storage allows them to better balance performance and resilience with cost efficiency to ensure that their data is secure and accessible whenever they need it.”
