Backblaze, a Silicon Valley startup that provides unlimited online file storage for $5 a month (USD), is offering the cost-effective methodology they developed for their storage pods on their website for free on their company’s blog entitled “Petabytes On A Budget: How To Build Cheap Cloud Storage“.

After searching for a cheap way to store customer data, they created a custom 67 terabyte storage pod for a meager $7,867.

Since Backblaze specializes in providing a quality backup experience, they wanted to share the technology with the public and hopefully inspire others to improve upon it. The post contains step-by-step instructions on how to make one of your own pods, as well as a short video that showcases a 3D model version of the pod.
