Backblaze and crowdsourced hard drives

I love the services and software provided by Backblaze. They are one of the very few companies that still provide unlimited automatic online remote backup at a ridiculously cheap price of $5 a month. 

The main reason they can provide such a service at such a cost is because they've innovated and created this amazing Storage Pod concept that uses densely stacked serves equipped with cheap hard drives. It is a must-read for anyone interested in storage technology. 

And just recently they "crowdsourced" hard drives during the Black Friday sale. Pretty amazing way to do things. 

I trust Backblaze with all my online backup needs. If you are not using Backblaze to backup your precious data online to a remote location then you should have a very good reason not to. Oh, and Good Luck!
