Replicate Amazon S3 to Wasabi


Replicating data between two platforms, especially when you have millions of files can prove difficult to find a robust and affordable solution. Even more, when replicating the likes of Veeam backups between Amazon S3 and Wasabi.

How to replicate Amazon S3 to Wasabi

When it comes to replicating between the two, we recommend backing up to Wasabi and then replicate to Amazon S3. This is due to Wasabi not having egress fees and being more affordable off the line. Having no egress fees will help reduce cost phenomenally as if you were to back up and then replicate from Amazon S3, you would have egress fees and additional API charges that could ramp up quickly.


Although Movebot is primarily a migration tool it can be configured for data replication, whether its Amazon to Wasabi, Box to Backblaze B2 or an on-premise file system to the cloud. Although Movebot's data rates cater for migrations, if you are looking to replicate it is worth reaching out to the team for a reduced replication rate. See below on how to replicate your data from Amazon S3 to Wasabi.

Step 7: Kick off

Once you finish configuring your project, you'll be sent to your project's dashboard. From there, you can run a pre-migration scan or start replicating Amazon S3 to Wasabi immediately by highlighting your project and hitting start. 

Note - It is recommend that you do an initial migration of your data to Wasabi prior to replicating. This ensures a more controlled and steady replication scheme, this is more important when you have TBs of data as there are ways this initial transfer can be accelerated.
