How to manage API Costs with BackBlaze for MSP
We're rolling out an MSP program for backups and trying to choose the right storage provider to use with CloudBerry. Wasabi looked great but once you look at the 90 day storage requirement it's less appealing for some instances. BackBlaze is our next option but I'm concerned about the API costs. Trying to get an idea on what others are seeing that use BackBlaze for backups for multiple customers. Are you going over the 2,500 Class B and C calls per day? How many agents do you have deployed? Average costs you're seeing per month related to API calls? Thanks in advance!
Thanks for posting here Chris. Hopefully some of our customers who use Backblaze will comment with their experiences.
I've run a quick test and it seems that the software uses thery moderate amount of API calls to upload data to BackBlaze.
For example, below is the report after uploading 10 medium sized files (1 GB in total) with default settings. As you can see, the whole process generated less than 30 Class C API calls:
