Backblaze is only a backup service, like in the old days and no additional features, for those who want the real basic, not so bad, it is what it is. Backblaze does not support sharing , sync, and limit, so what’s the purpose of backing without sharing with your other devices ?
Features Panel: Backblaze is a big name in backup services, but like mozy and carbonite, more because of a long time running on the market, and still runnning with their old customlers data base. Compare to any new comers, no competition.
Customer Support: Because backblaze is a basic backup service, you don’t really need a support, but if you do, you will have to wait for a while, they hav’nt developpe this area properly and I believe they are not on the way for it.
Extras: Backblaze includes a follow up technology, it’s working like a GPS with the IP, so if you’r laptop is stolen, that woulmd be possible to trace it, not bad idea indeed.
Security: Backblaze strongest point, not because they are better then the others, but at least, they offering the 100% security level for your files, you couldn’t ask less to a backup service anyway.
Usability: So simple and basic, you could get lost with the system, actually, you will wondering if you HAVE a system ! But the work is done. To old backblaze users, I would recommand to try mypcbackup to compare, and realize that for a lower price that will have about 3 time more functions, espacially the automated sync.
Price and value: 5.95 $ a month is not a fortune, they couldn’t ask more with the basic service offered here, but it’ still higher then full services providers. Of course Backblaze is offering a tiny price but you get only one computer sync for it, forget about multiply devices.
