$5 for unlimited backup storage? Wtf?
Sat, Aug 28, 2010
I'm sorry if this post sounds like an advertisement, but it is not.
I ran into this backup service yesterday. It's called Backblaze I was pretty surprised when I saw the price... $5 a month for a complete backup of your computer.. that is: unlimited storage for $5 a month. That's nothing short of amazing.
I'm always looking for backup solutions, so this sounded good, but maybe a bit too good. But it seems kind of scary to trust your data to $5 backup service. A user called barmstrong on HN pointed me to this blog post by Backblaze on how they build their servers and therefor how they are able to do storage so cheaply.
