SAN MATEO, Calif., May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Backblaze, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLZE), the leading independent storage cloud platform, today announced the launch of its Channel Partner Program. The launch—which follows the recent announcement of a capacity billing model exclusive to the channel, Backblaze B2 Reserve—includes a suite of benefits, rewards, and resources developed to uplevel ease of use and incentives for resellers and distributors who bring B2 Cloud Storage to their customers.
“When it comes to helping businesses get the best of what cloud services have to offer, no one does it better than the channel,” Elton Carneiro, Senior Director, Partnerships at Backblaze commented. “So, being able to give our Channel Partners the tools, support, and incentive to do more with B2 Cloud Storage is incredibly exciting.”

- Joint marketing efforts, collateral, and promotional funds.
- Channel exclusive pricing, rebates, and incentives.
- Resources including staff support, automated deal registration, and lead passing.
