Sustainability with Wasabi
Wasabi is on a mission to store the world’s data, and to do so efficiently. We know it’s mission critical for our customers and partners to develop a sustainable IT infrastructure, and we’re committed to this journey.
We’ve purposefully architected Wasabi hot cloud storage for optimal power consumption and efficiency, maximizing the amount of data that can be stored on a disk. Additionally, we make extensive use of virtualization and container technologies that allow us to operate many system functions across shared hardware elements rather than dedicated hardware for each function, which allows us to reduce the amount of power and space consuming hardware in our data centers.
Use of Carbon Calculator
The carbon footprint calculator at Wasabi, provides an estimate of the CO2e emissions for data stored in Wasabi for 365 days. The calculation is based on “actual” storage which is inclusive of Wasabi redundancy technologies used to provide eleven 9s of data durability. Additionally, the carbon footprint calculator includes all components of the Wasabi storage region including servers, drives, enclosures, switching, routing, and cooling.
A collective effort
Sustainability requires a truly collaborative effort. Unlike many larger vendors who typically build their own data centers, which impacts land, water usage, and air quality, Wasabi deploys our service in existing top-tier colocation facilities that provide the same power, space, and security capabilities as a hyperscale data center but allow us to cost effectively consume power and space that expands with our service growth without environmental impact.
We are deliberate when selecting partners, ensuring a collective mindset and like goals. Our data center partners including Equinix, NTT, Flexential, Digital Realty, and Iron Mountain, are leaders in data center sustainability and are working consciously to minimize their carbon footprint and reduce energy consumption.
We want to help our customers and partners realize and measure the environmental impact of their data stored with Wasabi.
