Why lament the loss of precious family photos and videos when you can store them securely with Backblaze for just $6 per month?


The times when any mention of cloud computing prompted people to roll their eyes are well and truly over. IT companies offer an ever-increasing number of cloud services. No longer a privilege of technologically savvy users, the security of life per month in the cloud has become a part of everyday life for most smartphone and computer users.

Today, we use cloud computing to stream films and music. Most commonly, clouds are associated with data storage, for which most users tend to choose Microsoft, Google, Apple, and other tech giants. However, there is a dwarf that has them all beat.

Generating an annual income of some $30 million, Backblaze has a growing number of satisfied users. Once a subscription is arranged, they can stop worrying about losing the data on their computer.


A Backblaze cloud backup subscription will keep the data on your computer safe for just $6 per month or $60 per year.


At this point, you understand that Backblaze offers cloud storage, but differs considerably from better-known services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Apple iCloud. These are aimed mainly at ease of sharing and access to photographs, music, videos or documents, while Backblaze’s mission is to provide a backup copy of the data stored on your device. All you have to do is install the app and all – all! – the data from your computer will be stored safer than ever.

What is the price for one hundred percent security? Surprisingly low: for safe storage, users pay a monthly subscription of $6, an annual subscription of $60, or a biannual subscription of $110.


On top of that, Backblaze offers unlimited space. It doesn’t matter whether your hard drive is filled with hundreds of films in HD taking up dozens of TB, or endless indispensable work files. Backblaze stores them all and does it automatically, while most competitors require manual transfer.

This is why no tech giant comes close. For instance, one terabyte of storage costs €9.99 per month in Dropbox and $6.99 in Microsoft OneDrive, while Apple and Google charge a monthly subscription of just under $10 for two terabytes of storage.


In addition to a backup copy that is always up-to-date, Backblaze also offers two terabytes of cloud storage like the tech giants.


However, it is worth noting that the service offered by the above four providers is different from the Backblaze backup copy. With Dropbox, Microsoft, Apple and Google users gain extra space, while Backblaze, serving as a hard drive backup, removes any files that users delete from their device, after 30 days.

Backblaze is best suited to users with large volumes of data and people who put security first.

If you are running out of space on your computer, don’t worry: Backblaze has the solution. Their B2 service gives you up to two terabytes of storage for the same monthly fee as Google and Apple, while the two tech giants cannot offer you automatic data backup.

For a subscription, Backblaze offers unbeatable security, as well as extra cloud storage for all your precious (and not-so-precious) data.
