Behind the Math
Calculating the Size of Units: Base-2(1024)
Wasabi uses a base-2 when calculating storage usage. This means that:
- 1 GB = 1,073,741,824 bytes (1024 bytes * 1024 * 1024)
- 1 TB = 1024 * 1 GB = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes
Note: According to the IEC recommendations, all calculations related to the use of base-2 should use terms such as TiB, GiB, MiB. However, following industry standards, we use the terms GB, TB, and PB
The Minimum Storage Retention Policy
MSP360 Storage powered by Wasabi has a minimum retention period of 30 days.
Note: That means if stored objects are deleted from the MSP360 storage in less than 30 days, you will be charged with an early deletion fee. It equals the number of days left to the minimal duration of 30 days multiplied by the amount of data deleted.
The Minimum Object Size
The minimum object size is 4 kilobytes (4 KB) which is 4096 bytes.
Note: You are still able to store objects less than 4 KB but you will be charged as if it was a 4 KB object.
Aborted Multipart Uploads
Aborted multipart uploads occur when a multipart download starts but has not been completed due to a planned or unplanned interruption. The storage associated with uncommitted multiparts (aborted or abandoned) is currently charged as long as uncommitted multiparts are kept in the system as active storage which is currently 30 days.
Thus, an incomplete multipart object is charged as "active" storage for the first 30 days from creating time, and then it will be considered as "deleted" storage.
We use a pay-as-you-go pricing model after you exceed the monthly minimum. This is a flexible post-payment model that allows you to pay only for the storage you use.
If an attempt to charge your card for an MSP360 invoice fails (for any reason including insufficient funds, bank declines, card expiration, etc.), the following steps described and shown in Table 1: Notification on Payment Failure and Action Timeline listed below will happen without exception.
Table 1: Notification on Payment Failure and Action Timeline:
You have 7 days from the time of the first payment failure to pay the outstanding balance or we will lock your account and make it read-only.
You have 30 days from the time of the first payment failure to pay the outstanding balance or we will delete your MSP360 storage account and associated files.
Note: If you are not able to resolve your payment issues before this time, please contact us as soon as possible before automatic system delete action is taken on your MSP360 storage account and files
Note: Once the files have been deleted by the above process, it is not possible to recover the files
Deleting a Storage Account and Backup Data
Note that in case you delete your storage account or your bucket(s), the processing will take up to 7 days for security reasons. This period is also included in billing
