Overall Satisfaction with Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage

Backblaze offers some of the cheapest storage available. I have over 2 terabytes of backups (excessive, I know!) which only cost me $10 as of last month. Extremely cost effective and allows us to store very old backups for a very cheap price. Their personal backup services are even cheaper, and has (at time of review) unlimited backup capacity.

Pros

  • File management
  • Pricing
  • Customer Service

Cons

  • File organization sometimes is a little confusing
  • Lots of emails, but I assume that's due to the alerts I have set up
  • Price
  • Capacity
  • Bucket abilities
  • We haven't had any data loss situations yet, however I'm sure our ROI will be fairly high if we have to recover any data. Backblaze is in the insurance industry, not storage.
Backblaze is definitely the cheapest and most cost effective out of the 6 other services I've used in the past.

For personal use, they are by and away the best service available. For business use, I believe they are a very strong contender to be the #3 guys behind AWS and Linode.

Do you think Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Did Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage again?

Yes

I would consider Backblaze as a second or a third tier backup solution. Not in terms of quality, but I'd recommend having at least one more backup saved somewhere else. And with the cost as low as theirs, Backblaze is the perfect solution. It also provides very friendly recovery options on both the personal and business side.
