FAQs

What are the deployment options for backing up workstations?

Deploying Backblaze Business Backup for workstations across your organization is easy. You can use mass deployment tools like MSI Installer, JAMF, Munki, and others to deploy Backblaze to many workstations at once. Backblaze also offers a single management pane where you can deploy the backup solution at scale.

How long will Backblaze keep my files?

Backblaze offers one year of version history by default. You can upgrade to forever version history for an additional fee.

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.

Is Backblaze compatible with Windows and Apple computers?

Yes. Backblaze has Mac and PC clients so that you can run automatic backups on all of your organization’s workstations.

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

Yes. You can add and remove user accounts from a single dashboard using our Groups functionality.
