As founding members of the Bandwidth Alliance, Backblaze joins Cloudflare to bring the best and most cost-efficient experience for their mutual customers

SAN MATEO, CA – September 26, 2018 — / — Backblaze, a leading cloud storage provider announced a partnership with Cloudflare to deliver amazingly affordable storage and distribution of data stored in Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage platform. Beginning immediately, customers who store data with Backblaze B2 can have Cloudflare CDN access the data with zero transfer fees from B2 to Cloudflare. For customers who use both services, this will happen automatically when their data is transferred from Backblaze to Cloudflare. As part of this partnership, Backblaze has joined Cloudflare as a founding member of the Bandwidth Alliance, a group of like-minded companies driven to provide best of breed internet infrastructure, software and services, that are open, affordable and transparent.

The zero B2 transfer fees are available to all Cloudflare customers using any plan. Cloudflare customers can also use paid add-ons such as Argo and Workers to enhance the routing and security of the B2 files being delivered over the Cloudflare network. The combined solution let’s joint customers save up to 75% on cloud storage versus using the Amazon S3 solution to store content in the cloud and deliver it worldwide.

“Cloudflare’s mission is to help build a better Internet by making it faster, safer, smarter and more efficient. It was this last point we had in mind when we started looking at bandwidth costs,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “The Bandwidth Alliance is the first step in helping customers drive their bandwidth costs close to zero, and we are pleased that forward-looking cloud hosts like Backblaze are joining this movement.”

“Backblaze has been the most cost effective cloud storage provider on the planet over the last 10 years. By becoming a founding member of the Bandwidth Alliance and partnering with Cloudflare we are doubling down on our commitment to provide our cloud storage service at a fair, sustainable price with no hidden fees buried in the fine print,” stated Gleb Budman, CEO and co-founder at Backblaze.
