Unleash the Power of Wasabi Hot Storage

Wasabi Hot Storage is the most affordable and powerful cloud storage service in the industry. Wasabi is 1/5 the price and 6x as fast as alternative cloud storage services like Amazon S3.

Wasabi is a cloud object storage that is compatible with Amazon S3. It can be integrated with AWS, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure solutions, using the same protocol and tools. Wasabi is a value-oriented, high-performance, low-latency, and high-availability cloud object storage offering.

Unleash the power of Wasabi Storage as an enterprise cloud file server with remote access via desktop drives, secure file sharing via web browsers, and accompanied by mobile applications on iOS and Android devices.

Unleash the Power of Wasabi Hot Storage

It's easy and simple to help your clients

Our client had a file server that was running out of storage. We wanted to migrate it to a cloud-based file server, but did not like that most do not behave like a traditional server (Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.) and do not really provide a well-managed, centralized data set. CentreStack helped us migrate the on-prem server to the cloud and simulate traditional file server controls like mapped drives, permissions and centralized management.

Like these features added to your Wasabi Hot Storage?

Wasabi Hot Storage is an object storage service that provides industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. In the business world, Wasabi Hot Storage is approved for enterprise use, while Dropbox is probably banned at the same time. However, as a CIO or leader of the IT team, you want a solution that uses Wasabi Hot Storage as the backend core storage service and adds the following features on top to turn Wasabi Hot Storage into a file sharing service.

Like these features added to your Wasabi Hot Storage?

Folder Permissions

Define different permissions for folders at different levels of the directory structure, or inherit from NTFS permissions directly.

Secure Data Room

A web-based secure data room allows view-only access to shared folders with download disabled.

Active Directory

From internal Active Directory users to external clients and partners, you can define user rights for folder sharing.

Version Control

Shared folders are placed under version control, and notifications are available to users who have subscribed to the folders.

The Solution - Remote Shared Folders for Windows Servers


CentreStack is integrated with Office 365 for web-based co-editing and co-authoring for files inside the shared folder.

Large Folder

Use Outlook integration to share large folders or files as web links via email.

Link Sharing

Convert shared files and folders to web links for direct access via web browsers.

Mobile Application

Access shared files and folders from mobile devices, such as iPhone or Android phone.


Wasabi + File Sharing = Productivity and Security in Business!

Simplify User Training

Every mobile worker knows about mapping local drives to access a central file server. A cloud drive mapped to your underlying Wasabi Hot Storage provides the same user experience and saves time and money on user training.

Best of Both Worlds

As an enterprise CIO, you have permission to use Wasabi Hot Storage, but you may not have permission to use Dropbox. Now you can combine the robust platform of Wasabi with the ease of use and productivity of Dropbox to get an Wasabi-based Dropbox alternative solution.

Reduce Costs

Cloud drive mapping supports on-demand access so that laptops with smaller SSD drives can see the full scope of the shared cloud drive without storing 100% of the cloud drive content locally. It doesn't force mobile workers to upgrade their remote devices and saves money. The content of your Wasabi Hot Storage can continue to grow and your laptop with SSD can continue to dynamically work with the content.

Permission Control

Has a simpler strategy for migrating and configuring permissions than SharePoint, Dropbox, or Google Drive - inherit them directly from your file servers as they migrate to Wasabi.

Server in the Cloud

Wasabi Hot Storage with these additional file sharing features are like file servers in the cloud. With features like mapped drive, file locking, web browser access, and mobile apps from iOS and Android devices, it's the true cloud file server you are looking for.

Wasabi Dropbox Alternative

A solution that provides secure remote access and file sharing, disaster prevention and recovery for on-premises file servers with easy cloud migration to Wasabi Hot Storage. Mounting Wasabi Hot Storage as a network drive is one of the most popular features.

Remote Access

Combines on-premises file servers and Wasabi Hot Storage for secure remote access without the need of using a VPN.

Disaster Recovery

Uses Wasabi as a central cloud file repository with version control, file change history, and audit tracing to ensure business continuity for on-premises file servers.

Mobile Sharing

Uses Wasabi Hot Storage in the cloud for secure mobile file sharing via a web browser or mobile apps.

Cloud Migration

Sets up a hybrid deployment between on-premises file servers and Wasabi Hot Storage that can later be seamlessly converted to an Wasabi-only.

Wasabi File Sharing Features

Once the Windows client agent software is deployed on the user's Windows desktop machine, the mapped cloud drive will appear in the Windows operating system like a pluggable external drive with the following features.


The user sees the files and folders, but the files are downloaded only when they are needed, so the local hard disk can be much smaller than the entire contents of the file server.


Automatic file locking locks files when the user is actively working on them. Manual file locking is also available to check out files and check them back in after changes.


For modified files, previous versions of the file are saved in case they are useful at a later time. Version history and retention policies are available.


Files and folders that are used frequently can be marked as favorites for offline access. Files marked as offline are preloaded into the local cache for later use.


Detect suspicious activity and block ransomware on endpoints. When an unusual frequency of file changes is detected, the protection mechanism kicks in and locks the device.


Unlike VPN connections, where file transfer can be interrupted if the underlying Internet connection is unstable, additional reliability features have been built in to overcome Internet interruptions.


For large files with small local changes, binary differential blocks are calculated, and the individual blocks are uploaded instead of the entire file to save bandwidth and time.


For files that are in the local file cache, encryption is available to protect these files that have been downloaded to the local cache. Without a successful login, these files remain encrypted at rest and are protected.


Audit traces and file change history logs are available to analyze who changed which files on the local machine and when, or moved files and folders from which source to which destination.

Folder Synchronization

As a Wasabi Dropbox alternative solution for enterprises, cloud drive mapper and folder synchronization features work hand-in-hand to provide additional business continuity capabilities for business users. Synchronize the on-premises "Documents" folder with the corporate cloud file server backed by private Wasabi Hot Storage for easy offline editing and with endpoint backup.

Check out the following folder synchronization features!

Wasabi File Sharing with These Folder Sync Features


The synchronization folder is subject to version control for conflict detection.



Files and folders in the cloud can be reverse-synced down to the local to create a local backup.



Version control can be used to resolve conflicts with offline edit mode.



Local files can be read and modified when the laptop is not connected.



Shared folders on the file server network can be backed up to private cloud storage accounts.



Folders from edge device can be backed up to centralized corporate file servers.
