Why should I trust Backblaze with my data?

Backblaze has proven itself as a provider of tried and trusted cloud storage solutions since 2007. It has exabytes of customer data under management for respected organizations around the world. The company is also known for transparent business practices—ranging from a consistent pattern of sharing data that can improve our industry to our choice to operate as a publicly traded company (Nasdaq: BLZE). We have nothing to hide in our easy to adopt and easy to manage solutions, and in our affordable and straightforward pricing structures. 

Is Backblaze B2 compatible with third-party applications and integrations?

Yes, Backblaze B2 integrates seamlessly with countless hardware and software tools, likely including those you use in your workflow. Some examples of our Alliance Partners are Veeam, MSP360, Arq, rclone, Commvault, Veritas, iconik, LucidLink, Synology, Fastly, and Vultr. You can find a more extensive list of tested integrations here; and many more will work seamlessly with Backblaze B2 given its S3 compatibility.

How safe is my data when stored in Backblaze B2?

The Backblaze B2 Storage Cloud is architected and designed with data security in mind. The key pillars of our security framework are enterprise-grade access management security, data storage security, and architecture & physical security. These include a wide range of administrative and technical controls, implemented at the enterprise, business process, and system levels, and attestations—so whether you’re seeking a platform designed for 11 nines of durability, encryption options, immutability, SOC 2 compliance, data replication, or just peace of mind, Backblaze is built for you.

How does Backblaze support sustainability?

Storing and using data is energy intensive–there’s just no way around this fact. However, by centralizing and optimizing data storage within our network of data centers, the Backblaze Storage Cloud operates more efficiently than distributed, on-premises systems storing the same volume of data. That said, the company understands that there is still more work to be done and is committed to a more sustainable future. Backblaze is acting accordingly to do its part and help B2 Cloud Storage customers reduce their carbon footprints and progress on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies. Backblaze from its beginnings focused on building a sustainable business. We lead the industry with our learning—for more than 10 years, sharing data and insights from more than 200,000 spinning drives to help others globally to do better. Additionally, we’ve operationalized impact reduction, from supporting data lifecycle rules to help customers store selectively and thereby manage down energy consumption, to recycling decommissioned hardware including drives, to moving into our Stockton1 data center for river cooling, no water consumption, no water pollution, no chemical use, and projected carbon footprint approximately 30% below average.

Does Backblaze B2 support hybrid cloud/multi-cloud infrastructure?

Yes, Backblaze B2 is often used within organizations’ hybrid cloud or multi-cloud infrastructure. You can easily integrate Backblaze B2 via API, CLI, or third-party software and/or hardware integration.

Is it possible to migrate my data from a legacy storage solution to Backblaze B2?

Yes, Backblaze offers Universal Data Migration to support moving or copying data from a range of sources, including legacy public cloud providers such as AWS, Google, and Microsoft, cloud drive services such as Google Drive and Box, on-premises servers, storage area network (SAN), and network attached storage (NAS), and LTO tape media. What’s more, Backblaze covers migration costs—yes, we take on the data transfer and egress fees—on committed contracts greater than 100TB and Backblaze B2 Reserve bundles, with the one caveat being that migration from a small set of source locations, for example pre LTO-6 tape media, may only qualify for partial subsidization given added costs and complexities. Rest assured we can discuss this with you so there are no surprises.

What customer support options are available for Backblaze B2?

All Backblaze B2 customers receive free support that includes documentation, knowledge base articles, and email and chat support from real, nice humans. Premium support plans are available for customers that seek more personalized assistance and/or a tighter response SLA. You can learn more about premium support options here.
