Does Backblaze B2 offer lower-cost storage tiers for archival data?

Backblaze B2 is always-hot storage at cold storage prices. There are no tiers. You can store your archival data in Backblaze B2 for a similar cost as Amazon Glacier, with the added reassurance of knowing that you’ll be able to access your data when you need it - without any cold delays.

Our university has a multi-cloud environment. How can we use Backblaze B2 alongside our current vendors?

Backblaze B2 helps you optimize for multi-cloud while avoiding vendor lock in. Many customers use Backblaze B2 for backup and archive purposes while maintaining production data on-premises or in another cloud. You may also find that Backblaze’s performance and cost inspires you to shift more departmental data to B2 Cloud Storage–making it your primary public cloud.

We use Veeam as our primary backup software. Does Backblaze B2 integrate with Veeam?

Backblaze is a Veeam Ready partner and certified Veeam Ready for Object with Immutability. With our S3 Compatible API, it’s easy to designate Backblaze B2 as your object storage repository and send your data to Backblaze B2 using either the direct-to-object functionality or the Scale-out Backup Repository. Also, for Veeam, Backblaze offers Cloud Instant Business Recovery, a fully-managed, on-demand DRaaS including bare metal servers and compute resources to support RTO needs.

Our data is always growing due to new students arriving every year. How can we be sure our cloud storage bill will meet our tight budget needs?

Backblaze B2 is highly performant cloud storage priced at one-fifth the cost of AWS. Unlike other cloud storage providers, Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage is also free of ranging add-on fees like minimum storage duration requirements (which can result in you paying for data storage long after you have overwritten or deleted files) or object lock service charges. Costs are affordable and transparent so you can store your data for as long as needed.

How do I get started with Backblaze B2?

Many customers find it easy to get set up on their own in under 20 minutes using our Integration Guides. Simply designate Backblaze B2 as the cloud storage target in your existing backup software.
