Vultr expands strategic partnership with Backblaze
Apr 19, 2023

We’re excited to announce the expansion of our strategic partnership with Backblaze, a leading specialized storage cloud platform, to provide digital startups with top-notch cloud services and storage solutions. Together, Vultr and Backblaze are offering a compelling alternative to the walled gardens of hyperscalers.

At Vultr, we believe in providing cloud services that are scalable, globally accessible, and offer the best price-to-performance of any independent cloud platform. With 30+ locations globally, Vultr offers a vast network of data centers that can meet the needs of businesses of all sizes.

However, cloud computing is just one part of the equation. Companies need a reliable storage solution to manage their data effectively as they grow and generate more data. This is where Backblaze comes in – offering a storage solution that provides the same performance as legacy cloud providers at a fifth of the cost.

By partnering with Backblaze, Vultr can offer a complete cloud solution that pairs best-in-class computing with best-in-class storage as a service. This partnership means that digital startups can now get all the benefits of Vultr's cloud services, such as fast deployment and global reach, while also having access to Backblaze's reliable and affordable storage solutions. With Backblaze, startups can access enterprise-level storage solutions at a fraction of the cost of traditional storage providers.

Together, Backblaze and Vultr already serve a number of customers, such as Can Stock Photo. With a wide range of partner integrations and incentives available, the Can Stock Photo team saw many potential benefits in utilizing Backblaze and Vultr together.

"Vultr reminds us a lot of Backblaze,” said Duncan Enman, Founder and CEO of Can Stock Photo. "They’re very responsive and keen to serve customer needs.”

With nearly three exabytes of data storage under management, more than 500,000 customers, and 16+ years of managing a storage cloud at scale, Backblaze's proven track record for performance, security, and reliability make them an excellent partner. Their mission is to make storing and using data astonishingly easy.

To kickstart this expanded partnership, Vultr and Backblaze are inviting you to join us for "Reducing Cloud OpEx Without Sacrificing Performance and Speed,” a webinar on May 4.

In this 45-minute session, Greg Hamer (Principal Developer Evangelist, Backblaze) and David Johnson (Product Marketing Manager, Vultr) will explore the following:

  • How to effectively leverage Backblaze B2 cloud storage and Vultr cloud compute.
  • Customer Spotlight: Can Stock Photo breaks free from AWS, reduces its cloud bill by 55%, and achieves 4x faster generation.
  • Benchmarking performance and cost of Vultr and Backblaze against AWS EC2 and S3.
