World Backup Day is March 31st and to celebrate this year, we’re going back in time and revisiting one of the most fun things we’ve done here at Backblaze, a Reddit IAmA!

On Thursday March 28th at 10am Pacific, join us on the official Reddit IAmA subreddit and ask us whatever you like!

Who — The Team Behind Backblaze
Joining in this IAmA will be: Gleb Budman, CEO of Backblaze; Brian Wilson, CTO of Backblaze; Yev Pusin, The Guy Writing This Post; and Andy Klein, the fellow who writes all of the Hard Drive Stats and Storage Pod posts! We’ll also have other Backblaze members popping in if they have some expertise to share!

Why — Backup Awareness
Backblaze has supported World Backup Day since it started. Our first AUA (ask us anything) was about seven years ago and was in honor of World Backup Day, as well. We want to make sure that everyone is backed up, and World Backup Day is a great reminder that not everyone has a backup, and lets friends know that they should protect the important files they have on their computers. And, of course, if someone you know could use a service like ours, please send them to:
