Researchers Supported
Tapes Eliminated
Barriers Between Scientists and Systems

We have strict compliance standards to adhere to as a HIPAA-covered entity. How does Backblaze secure our data?

Backblaze takes data security very seriously. We offer highly durable and secure storage with SOC 2-compliant data centers and SOC 2 certification as a company. You can learn more about our security standards here. Under HIPAA, Backblaze is a Business Associate to our business customers who are Covered Entities under HIPAA. We operate in compliance with HIPAA in this regard and will execute a Business Associate Agreement with customers who are Covered Entities under HIPAA.  Regarding the protected health information ("PHI") stored on your files, as outlined in our Privacy Notice, Backblaze does not access the content of the files you store with us.

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.

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.

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.
