How can I migrate my data from one Wasabi bucket to another Wasabi bucket?

We are sometimes asked how to migrate the contents of one Wasabi bucket to other Wasabi bucket in the same or a different Wasabi region.  A potential use case of this capability would be to move your storage out of one Wasabi region to another Wasabi region.  Below is some guidance on this topic:

1. At this time, Wasabi does not have a tool for customers to use for this purpose.  We are developing a feature known as Wasabi Bucket Replication (WBR) that could be used for this scenario.  This feature is planned for the end of 2019.

2. Wasabi does have a list of validated cloud-to-cloud migration tools that could be used for bucket migration.  We have had customers use Acembly and Flexify successfully for this use case.  Note that these services do charge a per-GB transfer fee to perform the migration. 

3. Depending on the volume of data, it may be more practical and/or less expensive to simply upload your data to the new Wasabi bucket.  

After you complete the bucket migration and you delete your original bucket, Wasabi will provide you with a service credit for any deleted storage charges that you incur as part of this bucket deletion (please contact us for this credit once you have completed the source bucket deletion).
