Backblaze teams up with Fastly CDN to slash egress fees but there’s a catch

Cloud storage firm Backblaze has partnered with edge cloud platform Fastly to provide businesses with a huge financial saving on their egress fees. As part of the partnership Backblaze will offer zero egress fees for all Fastly customers who use Backblaze. “No lock-in, no time limits for any customer at any level” was what a spokesperson told TechRadar Pro.

The catch is that the cost of switching cloud storage provider can be prohibitively high, leaving firms locked into contracts that don’t meet their needs. For some Fastly users that want to make use of Backblaze’s cloud storage and backup features, they no longer need to worry about the cost of migration. The only catch is that customers have to migrate at least 50TB of data and store it with Backblaze for at least 12 months.
