Straightforward, non-tiered pricing, with no minimums for storage size or retention periods, allows you to pay for what you actually use and budget accordingly—at only $5/TB of object storage per month. With over a decade of experience, Backblaze has a proven track record of reliability and sustainability, resulting in over 1 exabyte of data stored.

Veeam testing configuration:

Object Lock and Immutability Required

If versioning is enabled on an S3 bucket Veeam Backup & Replication will only manage the versioning when Immutability is enabled within the Object Storage Repository and Object Lock is enabled for the bucket.

At this time, all buckets created within Backblaze  have versioning enabled. As such it is required that that any Backblaze S3 buckets created for use with Veeam Backup and Replication must have Object Lock enabled at the time of creation and when added to Veeam Backup & Replication “Make recent backups immutable” must be enabled for the Object Storage Repository.
