Girls Scouts San Diego finds the combination of Backblaze B2 and CloudBerry Backup to be the perfect combination of ease of use, price, and performance

SAN MATEO AND ALISO VIEJO, CA – June 28, 2016 — / —
Today, Backblaze and CloudBerry Lab announced the immediate availability of CloudBerry Backup for Windows Server with support for Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage 1.0. Backblaze B2, similar to Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure, allows you to store unlimited data in the cloud, but for 1/4th the cost: $0.005 GB/month for storage with zero upload fees. CloudBerry Backup users will now, just by choosing Backblaze B2 as their cloud storage destination, be able to save up to 75% off their current cloud storage bill. This means that small mid-sized businesses (SMBs) who struggle with antiquated tape backup systems or are just paying too much for cloud storage now have a Windows Server backup solution that is both easy to use and amazingly affordable.

Guy Fisher, a Windows Server Administrator for Girls Scouts San Diego is an early adopter of the combined solution. Non-profit organizations, just like (SMBs), are faced with protecting the organization’s data with a limited budget. Guy created an automated process to have CloudBerry capture and encrypt daily file server backups and move them off-site to the Backblaze B2 cloud where he has ready access to the files when he needs them. This solution replaced an aging and laborious LTO tape backup process Guy described as a “pain in the butt.” The cloud storage savings provided by Backblaze B2 allowed Guy to create and champion a solution that not only did the job, it met his fiduciary responsibility to Girl Scouts San Diego to spend the organization’s funds wisely.

“The combination of Backblaze B2 and CloudBerry lets Windows Server administrators confidently simplify their server backup process while significantly reducing their costs,” said Gleb Budman, Co-founder and CEO of Backblaze. He continued, “It has been a pleasure to partner with Cloudberry for the launch of B2, we look forward to working together in the future.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Backblaze to support their new B2 Cloud Storage,” said Alex Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. “Right out of the gate, small and medium-sized businesses can experience the significant advantages of powerful and easy-to-use CloudBerry Backup for Windows Server with the secure, and cost-effective cloud storage from Backblaze,” said Alex Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab.

In addition to being cost effective, the solution is incredibly easy for CloudBerry customers to setup and use, here’s how it works:
1) Create a new Backblaze B2 account or use an existing one.
2) In CloudBerry Backup set B2 as the cloud storage location.
3) Source data is encrypted and backed up by CloudBerry directly to the customer’s B2 account.
4) Data is restored and decrypted via CloudBerry from B2.
