Add Support for Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage

For a future release, it would be nice to have Virtualmin support Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage as an option under Backup and Restore - Cloud Storage Providers.

I too would appreciate inclusion of Backblaze B2

I can use B2's tools to manage it for now, but having native support would be pretty great.

Do you have a link with information about the provider?

Cloud storage at for Backblaze and for rclone, a great tool to use with it.

One more + for this:-)

Going to bump this! would like to know if it is possible to create an api and import into Virtualmin? I am using rclone command line to sync accounts to individual buckets. Would be nice to see this done through Virtualmin interface. It way cheaper than using Amazon S3.

I'll mention it to Joe to see what he thinks.

I don't imagine Backblaze offers an S3 compatible API? If it did, it should be super-easy (as in, it would likely work today).

No, they don't have that. It would be epic if they did! Here's the API docs:

They also have sample code, and I'd be surprised if there aren't FOSS libraries available.

Native B2 support for virtualmin would be great.

In the meantime can run minio with the 'gateway' command to provide an S3-compatible front end to B2 storage.

Do you know any S3 compatible service? I'm trying to use the "S3-compatible server hostname" to work with OVH openstack swift object storage, but I can't find a way. The rclone workaround is great, but not what I'm looking for. Thanks.

Bumping this request as well. Backblaze is fast, affordable and reliable. Please make it happen.

I'm going to bump this thread - would love to see this as well. Relatively cheap as S3 is, I would love to have a non-amazon backup as well.
