For Joel Wagener, Director of IT at the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), simplicity is an important feature he looks for in software applications to use in his organization. So maybe it’s not unexpected that Joel chose Backblaze for Business to back up AIBS’s staff computers. According to Joel, “It just works.”
Your hard drive crashed and you’re without the files you need for a meeting. Fortunately, you’re a Backblaze customer, so your files are safe in the cloud. Here’s how Backblaze helps you get back to work as quickly as possible.
In Part 2 of our series on HDDS and SSDs, we take a deeper look at the differences between HDDs and SSDs, how both HDD and SSD technologies are evolving (and what else is on the horizon), and how Backblaze takes advantage of SSDs in our operations and data centers.
Customers frequently ask us whether and when we plan to move our cloud backup and data storage to SSDs (Solid-State Drives). That’s not a surprising question considering the many advantages SSDs have over magnetic platter type drives, also known as HDDs (Hard-Disk Drives). So what is in store for the future?
In Part 2 of our series on data centers we continue to look at factors that need to be considered both by those interested in a dedicated data center and those seeking to colocate in an existing center.
In this series we’ll talk in general terms about the factors that an organization needs to consider when opening a data center and the challenges that must be met in the process. In Part 1, we look at the different types of data centers, the importance of location in planning a data center, data center certification, and the single most expensive factor in running a data center, power.
In this post, we continue our Veeam/B2 series with a discussion of backing up Veeam to the Backblaze B2 Cloud using StarWind VTL. Using Veeam, StarWind VTL, and Backblaze B2 cloud storage is a superior alternative to tape as Backblaze B2 offers better economics, instant access, and faster recovery.
Both file server and endpoint backup have their places in an organization’s data security plan, but their use and value differ. If you already are using file server backup, adding endpoint backup will make a valuable contribution to your organization by reducing workload, improving productivity, and increasing confidence that all critical files are backed up.
