Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage is a performant, cost-effective alternative to the major cloud providers. Arraylake works great with Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage via the S3-compatible API. You can use Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage as the location of your Chunkstore.

To use Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage with Arraylake:

  • Create a new object storage bucket (Backblaze docs). For example, the bucket could be named my-arraylake-bucket. Your bucket will be located in a specific Backblaze region. You need to know the region name for the next step (e.g. us-west-004).
  • Create a new BucketConfig to store the configuration for this bucket using either the Arraylake Python client or web app:
Backblaze bucket configuration

Add a new Backblaze bucket

That's it! You're ready to create a Repository! 🎉
