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 1: Create a Movebot account

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.

“Simple to use – outstanding support.”

Movebot's support team was legendary in their quick responses and willingness to jump on a video conference to talk through how to resolve the problems. They have deep knowledge of their product and of the file storage platforms their solution is built for. We can approach future migrations with a lot less trepidation – given the accuracy and speed of Movebot, but especially because of their support team.

“A Game Changer In Data Migration”

Movebot.io emerges as a frontrunner in data migration tools. Its rapid data transfers, user-intuitive interface, and compatibility across cloud platforms mark it as a standout. Added security measures bolster data protection. In the realm of data migration, Movebot.io truly transforms the landscape, offering a streamlined and elevated experience.

“Great team, great product!”

We needed a tool for moving large data sets with detailed enough logging to give us confidence in the successful move of millions of files and folders. Previous tools we used choked on large data sets (>1TB or > 1 Million files) or the logging was too simplistic for us know find errors or have confidence in deleting the source data set at the end of the migration. Movebot solved this for us.

“When you put dedication, attention to detail and quality support, you get this.”

I tried several competitors, and there was always something: lack of human contact, price, quality, speed, etc. I started looking around and ended up meeting with the VP of Sales for Movebot, he jumped on a call, and we went over the product, capability, and next steps and WOW. I have been using Movebot for a while now, and to be honest, there is no one out there doing the job the way they do.

“Amazing tool for migrations!”

Fantastic experience... We were able to do a file migration for a high-priority / high-touch client and move them to Azure AD from their on-prem environment in approximately 48 hours. The scanning and the data move itself really felt seamless. Thank you so much for the tool and to your incredible team!
