Hello, We're having something 3 servers with a total of almost 1.5k cPanel accounts including Shared Hosting customers and Reseller Hosting customers, so in this situation data backup is really important. so is it good to store all those cPanel's backups in BackBlaze B2 Cloud Storage Buckets ? is it reliable and cheap?
Actually we want cheap but safe too, backblaze's price is cheap as compared to Hetzner's Storage Boxes which we're using right now.
Hetzner storage box costs 7.90euro whereas backblaze costs 0.005$/GB/Month means 5$ for one TB but backblaze takes charge of backup download means if we need to restore someone's account then we have to pay some extra they costs 0.01$ Per GB Download.
Means For Storage : 0.005$/GB/Month and for Downloading : 0.01$/GB.
The total storage used in my all 3 servers is : something 1200GB.

i am using JetBackup as a backup software and cPanel as a control panel.

Please tell me your recommendation, is it worth shifting to BackBlaze?

We use Backblaze for one customers servers. It's cheap (to backup) but I can't say it's reliable. At least once a month it fails for some odd reason, then works on the next backup run. You also need to look at what the charges will be if you have to download the data for a restore.

I should also note that we're still using V4. V5 as the ability to do incremental to BackBlaze, so that may work better.
