What is the best strategy for backing up a computer?

One of the best ways to approach backup is to use the 3-2-1 data backup strategy. That means keeping three copies of your data, on two different media, and keeping at least one copy of your data off-site. You might keep on-premises data backups on network attached storage (NAS) or a local server. For off-site backup, a cloud data storage provider is a great choice because it is inherently scalable as your company grows and it’s accessible when you need it.

How do I choose a cloud backup service?

Choosing a cloud backup service is an important decision to ensure the safety and accessibility of your data. A few things to keep in mind when researching cloud backup providers are the following: Do they have a good reputation, affordable pricing, great customer service, and a free trial period so you can try before you buy? Backblaze is one of the fastest and most affordable cloud backup services on the market.

I’m interested in backing up—can I take Backblaze Computer Backup for a test drive?

Certainly! Backblaze provides a 15-day complimentary trial for Computer Backup users, ensuring a commitment-free experience that doesn't require upfront credit card details. During this trial, you're free to perform unlimited backups while having full access to all of your stored data.

Can I manage my backup users’ accounts from a centralized dashboard?

Yes, you have the flexibility to effortlessly manage user accounts, both adding and removing them, all from a single dashboard. Moreover, you can amplify your administrative oversight by applying advanced controls to your Groups, ensuring even greater management precision.

What is the difference between cloud sync and cloud backup?

Backup services run automatically in the background, capturing all new and updated data and backing them up to the cloud. Sync services provide a quick way to sync (literally: synchronize) data across multiple devices, and often include a sharing component. However, they rely on the user putting files into specific folders where syncing occurs, which isn’t an ideal backup solution. Read all about the differences between cloud backup vs. cloud sync.
