CrashPlan v.s. Backblaze

I remember how amazing Crashplan backup service was back in 2010. Affordable, basically unlimited backup in the cloud made offsite backup practical for the home user. Somehow, they seem to have lost the plot somewhere in the past years. They have pivoted the business to focus on … something else? The client has deteriorated, the performance has degraded, the impact on client macs is frankly ridiculous.
I’ve just switched to Backblaze and it is amazing how much nicer the whole experience is. Clean modern admin UI, clean modern client, little performance overhead during backups – and cheaper too.
