Konichiwa! Backblaze partners with Japan’s largest software vendor: Sourcenext

By | April 16th, 2012

Sourcenext
Backblaze launches in a big way in Japan today. We have partnered with Sourcenext to offer our unlimited online backup service to the Japanese market.

The service provided in Japan still provides automatic backup, unlimited storage, unthrottled bandwidth, robust encryption, restore via download or USB drive, Locate My Computer, and more for one flat rate. Additionally, the entire service is localized into Japanese.

Noriyuki Matsuda, founder and CEO of Sourcenext, came to the US a couple months ago and said that his technical people scour the world for the best products to bring to the Japanese market. In 2010, they picked Evernote (one of my favorite services) to bring to Japan. This year they picked Backblaze online backup as a must-have for Japan.

I am thrilled to be partnering with Sourcenext to help every Japanese person keep their photos, music, movies, work files, etc. safe from drive crashes and other data loss.
