Just like the company's consumer backup service, Backblaze for Business will automatically back up all data on Windows and Mac laptops and desktops. Additionally, companies will be able to purchase and deploy the service centrally.

"All other online backup solutions for businesses charge on a per-GB basis," Backblaze co-founder and CEO Gleb Budman said.

Backblaze for Business allows all laptops [and] desktops to be easily and affordably backed up."
