Overall Satisfaction with Backblaze

We currently use it to back up 1 of our local productions (multiple large raw and edited video, audio, and photos) and are looking to use it for hot cloud backup across the org for all local productions once we integrate with a DAM later this summer.

Pros

  • Support
  • Custom scripts
  • Feature suggestions

Cons

  • FTP integrations for large files.
  • NAS sync integrations for large files.
  • Cold storage option with a lower cost.
  • Ability to sync multiple regions (of different tiers).
  • Support
  • Cost
  • B2 product and support staff
  • Cost savings versus other providers.
  • Savings allows for multi cloud or regional backup.
  • Sense of security for our off prem data storage.
The price for cold storage at the Google Cloud Archive tier beats all other costs. We also need a hot copy of most of our half a petabyte on a system with API integration capability to multiple products and B2 meets that need.

Do you think Backblaze Business Backup delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Backblaze Business Backup's feature set?

No

Did Backblaze Business Backup live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Backblaze Business Backup go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Backblaze Business Backup again?

Yes

If you have small files infrequently backed up, it's a good tool. A lot of large files require an expensive appliance to lift the data to the cloud or too much time to upload. The ability to upload multiple large files using any integration with a GUI (like Cyberduck) exists but fails.
