Easy-to-use service automatically backs up all data for just $5 per computer per month.

Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) June 2, 2008 -- Backblaze announces the easiest online backup service for individuals and businesses. The service asks no questions, just automatically backs up your computer. Request an invitation at and protect your computer in time for June's Backup Awareness Month.

Despite computer backup solutions having been available for decades, a Harris Interactive survey conducted on behalf of Backblaze released today finds 94% of people do not regularly backup (once a day or more). Reasons users often provide for not backing up include, "I don't have time," "It is too complicated," and "It is too expensive." Regardless of the cause--a computer virus, a hardware or software problem, or other malfunction--when data is lost, it is typically unrecoverable.

To address these concerns and help people backup, Backblaze makes backing up easy and affordable. Backblaze requires no configuration and no technical skills because it simply backs up all user data whenever they are online. For just $5 per month, users never need to worry about the safety of their data again.

Backblaze's founders have worked together over the last decade building companies that protected more than 10 million consumers and 5,000 enterprises worldwide. With this background the team has developed an online backup system that
