The economics of using Cloud Storage to replace LTO tape backup

If you’ve considered replacing your LTO tape system, you’ve learned that using cloud storage for backup and archiving can be expensive and nearly impossible to predict your cost when you had to recover your data. Until now. Backblaze B2 provides cloud storage for just $0.005/GB per month. Join us as we show you how companies have saved time, improved their ability to quickly recover data, and saved money by replacing their LTO set-up with B2 Cloud Storage. Never buy another tape again…

  • Best Practices in Backup and Archive from the Creative Agency Baron & Baron Recorded: Dec 13 2019 37 mins
    Janet Lafleur, Backblaze and Dr Marc Batschkus, Archiware
    Baron & Baron´s IT Director was tied up in tape and didn’t have what he needed.

    Attend this webinar and learn how Baron & Baron deployed Archiware software with Backblaze cloud storage for a backup and archive solution that allowed them to:

    Operate a single, integrated system for both backup & archive

    * Enable creative team members to retrieve content directly

    * Use customizable metadata fields to search and retrieve files
Cloud Storage and Cloud Backup
For over a decade, Backblaze has been a transparent company in the opaque world of cloud data storage. We've written on our blog about hard drive failure rates, data center internals, our open source high density storage design, and more. Here we are on Brighttalk and each month our goal is to bring you a webcast or video that sheds some light behind the scenes of a Cloud Storage company. And yes, we'll have a sales pitch or two the "off" weeks. Join us when you can!
