G-Core Labs Partners with Backblaze to Provide Free Data Traffic from Storage to CDN

G-Core Labs announced a partnership with Backblaze to provide companies with free egress traffic from storage to CDN. The new integration between G-Core Labs CDN and Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage seamlessly connects object storage to the content delivery network, and can be quickly deployed with just a few clicks. Customers can now expand the use cases and value they can achieve on the platforms while receiving the benefits of a reliable and affordable S3 compatible storage and a globally distributed content delivery network.

"We are constantly looking for opportunities to improve our products while creating the best possible environment and experience for our users," said Dmitriy Akulov, director of Edge Services, G-Core Labs. "This partnership enables our customers to significantly reduce operating costs by eliminating all egress traffic costs between our two platforms, providing a much more affordable way to store and distribute any kind of content to a global audience."

Delivering Dynamic Content Effortlessly and Economically

The G-Core Labs CDN and Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage integration provides cloud native developers, website owners and media production teams with an inexpensive, powerful way to scale and deliver any type of content to a global audience.

  • All customers will be able to take advantage of the joint solution's ability to simplify development processes and accelerate time-to-market for new features and services while taking advantage of the flexibility and efficiency of the cloud.

"The combination of G-Core Labs CDN and Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage provides customers a unique solution for delivering dynamic content with minimal effort," said Larry Carvalho, Principal Analyst, RobustCloud. "Customers can benefit from the products' seamless integration and ease of adoption while taking advantage of performance and a quick return on investment."

How it Works
