Established in 2007, Backblaze has built the world’s lowest cost cloud storage for both consumers and businesses.
On this infrastructure, the company offers unlimited low-cost laptop and desktop cloud backup for users of Windows and Macintosh computers. In 2016, the company expanded its services to cloud object storage with B2 Cloud Storage. B2 competes with Amazon’s S3, but is 1/6th the price. Unlike competing low-cost data storage services, data on B2 is available for immediate download. Its affordable and straightforward pricing plan makes costs clear and predictable. B2 is suitable for a wide range of data storage and retrieval uses due to numerous integrations with third party software and hardware as well as developer APIs.
