Setup Backblaze S3 with SnapShooter
Backblaze is a fantastic cloud storage solution that has one of the simplest and cheapest pricing options. Storage is $0.005/GB/Month, with download costs of $0.01/GB. There are no tiers or minimum costs.
Backblaze has EU and US datacenters.
Navigate to B2 Cloud Storage
Create a Bucket (you can use an existing one if you wish)
Choose a unique name, and make sure you select private
Make a note of the endpoint. It should look like s3.us-west-002.backblazeb2.com depending on region and date of creation
On the left select App Keys
Click - Add a new Application Key (master keys will not work with SnapShooter)
Give your key a name (SnapShooter will not need this)
If you want, you can restrict the key to just a single bucket. We recommend this
Press Create new Key
The application you see will be one time only. Make sure you keep this save
Return to SnapShooter
Paste all of the details in, appId as the Access key, and applicationKey as the Secret Access Key
Press Attach External Storage
You will be redirected back to the setup wizard and can now carry on setting up your MySQL backups
