“CoreSite serves as a partner in this mission, helping us move forward and achieve powerful results.

Managing over three billion gigabytes of data capacity, Backblaze supports more than 500,000 customers in over 175 countries, on a cloud storage platform designed to make it easy for businesses, developers, IT professionals and individuals to build applications, host content, manage media, and back up and archive data.

While Backblaze utilizes multiple data centers globally, it announced in December 2022 that it selected CoreSite as its colocation and connectivity partner for the cloud storage company’s expanded service in the eastern U.S. data region. The infrastructure expansion enhances Backblaze customers’ cloud storage options and strengthens data resilience.

CoreSite’s Reston, Virginia (VA2) data center establishes the ideal East Coast location, providing Backblaze with further geographic diversity and contributing an exabyte of capacity to support growing customer needs. To protect the integrity of Backblaze’s operations and its customers’ data, VA2 offers redundant infrastructure and robust security.

“We are committed to making cloud storage and data replication easy for our customers,” said Chris Opat, Senior Vice President of Cloud Operations at Backblaze. “CoreSite serves as a partner in this mission, helping us move forward and achieve powerful results.”

CoreSite helped Backblaze rapidly deliver its suite of cloud storage products to East Coast customers while also providing seamless integration to Backblaze’s network and public cloud partners via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange.
