Cloud Storage — Saving money with quick wins during tough times


COVID-19 sent shockwaves through the world and changes how a lot of organizations operate. Those who moved file servers to the cloud before the pandemic and who were already using digital collaboration tools had a significant advantage over those who didn't. But even with the pandemic gone, many are facing tough economic times. We have some quick wins for organizations to save money on Cloud Storage. Often the benefits of doing these quick wins are almost instantaneous and seen in the following month's financials.

How much does cloud storage cost? 

Presently a lot of data is being stored in the likes of Amazon S3, Azure Blob, and Google Cloud which is expensive, looking at around 0.023 cents a GB, compared to some other options, 0.0059 cents with Wasabi Cloud Storage or 0.005 cents through Backblaze B2. When you have terabytes or petabytes worth of data, that difference in cost can add up quickly. 

For example, a company with 100TB of data would be looking at $1,848.32 (51,200GB at 0.0184 per GB + 51,200GB at 0.0177 per GB) a month through Microsoft Azure. Whereas a company using Backblaze B2 would be looking at $512.00 a month.
