How to backup data to Wasabi Object Cloud Storage

Ahsay backup software suite is able to utilize affordable Wasabi Cloud Object Storage to store backup data. After you have created a bucket in a region of Wasabi, and granted access to the bucket, AhsayOBM and AhsayACB client software can back up data to there, while AhsayCBS can set it as a Predefined Destination for AhasyOBM and AhsayACB users to backup to.

1. Create a bucket in Wasabi

After signing up the Wasabi cloud service, you can first create a dedicated bucket in Wasabi for Ahsay to store the backup data.

– US East 1
– EU Central 1wasabi-object-cloud-backup-03

2. Grant Access Right

After creation of bucket, you need to grant access right to your bucket so that Ahsay backup software can have access to your bucket for putting the backup data into it. Go to Wasabi > Access Keys section, and click the Create New Access Key button.wasabi-object-cloud-backup-05
