We have an aggressive schedule to launch B2 and we'll send you an email roughly every other week to keep you informed on noteworthy developments.
We are already storing data in B2. For example, if you are a fan of the Backblaze blog, we served up a file stored in B2 via a link in the recent Q3 Hard Drive Stats post.
While we continue to expand our storage infrastructure to meet demand, our software developers are fleshing out the user interface and billing system, and addressing early feedback from the beta.
All of the employees of Backblaze have been "accepted" into the beta. We have also accepted the first handful of folks from the beta waitlist and hope to get more of you in quickly. Our plan is to accept everyone from the waitlist before launch.
