1. Create your Wasabi Bucket

  • Sign in your Wasabi account at https://console.wasabisys.​com

  • Go to and click on "Create Bucket"

    Wasabi Bucket creation form

  • On step 1 of the form, define the name of your bucket (we like to use our company name here)

  • Pick the region you need (think about GDPR rules, if you're an EU company)

    You can keep default options on step 2 and finally confirm your Bucket creation on step 3.

    And that's one good thing done, your Wasabi bucket is created!

  • Your "Bucket" name, in this case "myacme-bucket"
  • Your "Bucket" Region, in this case "us-west-1"

2. Create your Wasabi Credentials/Access Key

In order to grant access to your bucket, we'll need to create an Access Key.
