Backblaze

Backblaze does one thing and does one thing well: backup. If you recognize it for what it is, you will be very happy with it as an unobtrusive off-site backup solution. If, however, you want full-featured endpoint protection, you'll want to look elsewhere. For me and my needs, Backblaze provides the right amount of protection at a cheap price. You can't beat it.

pCloud

  • pCloud is quite suitable for most users. It does a lot well, such as file storage, being multi-platform, and decent user experience with folder organizing and moving files around.
  • Where it isn't at apt would be in workspaces to manage documents like Google Drive, and even dropbox would provide. The ability to manage google docs, sheets, etc. would be a significant plus.
  • The ability to use a workflow to store file shortcuts (don't like their star system quite as much)

Pros

Backblaze

  • Backblaze utilizes a native app across platforms vs. a javascript app you find with other backup services (CrashPlan being one of them). Native apps function better and have a better user interface than comparable javascript apps.
  • Backblaze has an intuitive interface that automatically backs everything up from your computer but allows you to easily exclude items you don't want or need to backup (applications, system files, etc.).
  • Backblaze has a built-in bandwidth cap and monitor allowing you to limit how much data is backed up on a daily basis to prevent going over ISP data caps or utilizing all of your upload bandwidth.

pCloud

  • Syncs really fast....both upload and download
  • Is reliable....decent uptime and quite stable

Cons

Backblaze

  • User management isn't the greatest. We had the choice of either a site license under one email address, or a domain license, allowing users to log in with their own email address, however there's no management for this option. I can see metrics of the users' backup, but I can't manage the accounts in any way.

pCloud

  • Offline folders (a normal sync rather than a separate folder would do)
  • Backups (ability to keep them longer and not be upsold for it)

As stated in my review, Backblaze simply works and works simply. You install it. It runs silently in the background storing and safeguarding all your computer data remotely. You seldom notice it until you've lost something you need - then you can quickly find it online using their interface and restore it - which is what's really important.

They answered any questions I had accurately and politely. I prefer to call a phone number and get a human on the phone, but they prefer email and chat. I understand they have business profits to consider, so it makes sense.

  • I'm quite as impressed with it, although their faqs cover most current and pending issues. They take around 48 hours to respond to inquiries, while platforms like Gsuite have an instant agent and multiple contact options.
  • They do attend to you, and I do understand they're trying to keep a lean team and reduce operational costs. For a frequent user who uses cloud storage for multiple things such as website databases, etc. and has clients, it could be a tad frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

Backblaze

Backblaze constantly will win in price and ease of use. Code42 has gone through multiple transformations, and with their ups and downs we had left on a down and haven't looked back. Wasabi is good, but with their API key system, we have relegated that to only for Synology's with HyperBackup.

pCloud

  • pCloud makes the storage and retrieval process quite easy. With Google Drive, sure you can store lots of items, but the Linux functionality just wasn't there.
  • The same was the case with OneDrive, which I still use. However, it can be buggy and taxing on computer systems.
  • pClould is quite simple to use, flexible, and quite effective at what it does. And it's conveniently priced too.

Return on Investment

Backblaze

  • The saving of data is almost immeasurable - Backblaze is the best backup company I've ever used.
  • Getting started is quick and easy - and you get a 14-day trial.
  • The price is cheaper than every other service - but don't tell them!

pCloud

  • Less stress (since I can switch computers and not be limited by hard drive space yet having access to what I need.
  • Integrating Linux into our workflow (they take the cake there, and that makes life so much easier.
