Backblaze’s 1 MW expansion at Nautilus' Stockton Data Centre

Backblaze, a cloud backup and storage solutions provider, has expanded its data centre portfolio by contracting 1 MW at Nautilus' Stockton data centre

The latest step in Backblaze’s power expansion has seen the leading independent storage cloud platform contract for 1MW of power at Nautilus’ Stockton data centre, located in California. 

Nautilus' Stockton data centre operates at the highest levels of energy efficiency, achieving a net zero water consumption, operating without refrigerants or water treatment chemicals, thereby operating without causing any harm to the surrounding wildlife. 

In fact, Nautilus commissioned this data centre site to be 70% more efficient than the industry average, supporting 7MW of critical IT load in four vaults. 

"We are challenging some of the world’s biggest technology companies with Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage and Computer Backup, so efficiency and innovation are central to our success. Working with Nautilus is exciting because they are clearly committed to these same ideals," said Gleb Budman, CEO and Chairperson of Backblaze.

"We are excited to have Backblaze on board," said Rob Pfleging, President of Nautilus. "By partnering, we can help support their growth in a sustainable way. With our data centre solutions focused on advanced cooling and power efficiency, Backblaze will not only be able to reduce their environmental impact but also lower their total cost of ownership all while continuing to meet the high demands of their growing customer base."
