Announcing the Backblaze B2 Virtual User Group: Come Join Us!

At Backblaze, we work hard to make Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage as easy to implement as possible. However, what is easy for some can be a challenge for others. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have a forum where experienced professionals walk you through the best ways to fully leverage the power of Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage? Or have an open supportive meetup where you can ask questions and get answers from others that can share tips on their successes and failures with you?

To help make it easier for Backblaze B2 users to succeed, we are launching a free monthly Backblaze B2 Virtual User Group.

How to Sign Up for the Backblaze B2 Virtual User Group

If you think this user group may be of interest, please sign up using the form on the user group home page. Since our user group is an open community, registration for our meetings is not mandatory. However, signing up will help us keep you up to date about upcoming meetings and help us better address the needs of the community. Also, individuals who sign up will be added to a private, members-only Slack channel where user group members can communicate with each other easily outside of meetings.

Another option for you is to just bookmark the user group homepage and watch for meeting dates, topics and get the public “Meeting Room Link,” Attending as an observer is OK, too.

What to Expect at the Virtual User Group:

No matter where you are, this user group is for you. As a worldwide virtual user group, all you need to have is the link for the monthly meeting currently scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. Pacific time and you are good to go. It’s that easy!

Typically, meetings will have one hour and 15 minutes of content.

Backblaze team members will attend each meeting, so attending user group meetings will be a great way to get direct access to Backblaze’s technical personnel who deliver world-class Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage for you.

Because Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage is versatile and there are so many use cases, each meeting will focus on a different topic. Please check our user group home page and just join those meetings that are of interest to you. For our initial three meetings, we will focus first on developers, then on media and entertainment hosting and storage, and later on backup and archive.

Additional topics will be announced in the months ahead on our user group home page. If you have a topic not covered in our initial meetings, please let your voice be heard and mention it now in a comment below.

Why You Should Come

These virtual user group meetings will be a great way for you to meet and hear from people who successfully deliver solutions that you may want to better deliver or improve on your team’s workloads.

If you have solutions or helpful use cases you would be willing to share with others, our Backblaze Evangelism team is eager to hear from you.

You now have your official invitation! So please join our user community! We look forward to meeting you at our next user group meeting.

If you know anyone who may be interested in joining our user group meetings, we would appreciate your sharing this announcement with them.

Blaze on!
