GoodSync 10 welcomes the addition of Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage. B2 is hailed as an affordable alternative to other cloud storage options, offering easy to use APIs, the ability to upload and download data via Web GUI, API, or CLI., as well as backup, archiving, and synchronization to servers and NAS devices. This is a great way for GoodSync users to store their data online (or “in the cloud”) or for Backblaze B2 users to take advantage of GoodSync’s power and flexibility when syncing files between their desktops, and the cloud.
Note: Only Backblaze for Business can be used with GoodSync.

As previously mentioned, one of the main benefits of Backblaze is its affordability. Backblaze B2 customer, Vintage Aerial, conducted a projected 5-year cost savings analysis for storing 80 TB of photos. They concluded B2 was a cost effective replacement of on-premise storage as well as an inexpensive alternative to AWS.
B2 is $0.005/GB per month for data storage and $0.02/GB to download data. The first 10GB of storage is free, as is the first 1 GB of downloads per day. Additional B2 Cloud Storage pricing can be found here.
