Backblaze: Heating Up the World of Backup

I interviewed Ahin Thomas, Vice President of Backblaze. He describes himself as “A former bartender, songwriter and hand model.”

Ahin previously worked as director of eCommerce at Sears Holdings, was the co-founder and CEO of Vintners’ Alliance, and was the head of marketing for Symphony Commerce.

In this interview, Ahin talks about Backblaze’s major products: Computer Backup and Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage. Computer Backup provides unlimited data storage, native clients that silently run in the background for Mac/Windows, and affordable prices with rock solid endpoint backups that do not require maintenance.

Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage works well with an established company and includes reliable/predictable pricing in an industry where it is lacking. It also empowers companies to “move to the cloud” and leaves room for MSPs to make a profit where they can switch to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage, giving customers a discount vs. Amazon S3, and pocket the difference.
