Wasabi Launches Storage Region in Germany

BOSTON and FRANKFURT, Germany — The hot cloud storage company Wasabi Technologies is expanding its presence in Europe.

Wasabi opened its first German storage region at the Equinix data center hub in Frankfurt, Germany, according to Wasabi this month.

The location allows Wasabi to address data sovereignty concerns in Germany as well as benefit from “rigorous” environmental and energy management standards.

The move is intended to help Wasabi meet demand for flexible storage and ensure more proximity to German customers and partners looking for compliant solutions in their country.

Wasabi believes the demand for cloud storage is increasing in the region, as organizations in Germany create more data due to increased innovation, smart cities, and digitalization in education and health care.

Clients can access their data “any time,” with no fees for egress or API requests and “no vendor lock-in.”

The Frankfurt storage region is part of Wasabi’s global rollout of storage locations, including Amsterdam, London, and Paris, with more locations in the coming months in APAC and North America.

The company will also continue to expand its channel partner network across Europe, which includes distribution partners Exclusive Networks and Erbertlang and a network of “hundreds” of resellers and MSPs.

“The German cloud market is growing rapidly,” said Richard Czech, VP of EMEA Sales, Wasabi Technologies.

“Wasabi’s expansion to Frankfurt helps us meet the growing demand there, while alleviating data sovereignty concerns.”
