Backblaze B2 now supports S3 API

Well, this may be a game changer, and maybe better than Wasabi if you don’t need (kind of)unlimited transfer and multiple regions.

    Its good so that you don't rely much on 3rd party softwares. There are a lot of s3 plugins and tools, which you will able to use now with B2.

    Wasabi and B2 are serving different segments, while still being object storage providers: Wasabi is "batteries included", so to speak, with no charges for reasonable API calls and data transfer, but at a slightly higher price and some minimum limits (like DO/Linode/Vultr). B2 is everything separated (a bit like the big three), but much more elastic. The B2 API (the original one, not the new S3) could be faster by orders of magnitude than the normal S3 ones, if the user wrote a few lines (<50) of optimisation.

    Wasabi also has a billing system that requires minor calculus to find out what your charges are going to be. $5.99 a month is a lie.

    İf your files will be downloaded frequently, then api call charges may cost more than storage or bandwith.

    Best use case for B2 is for backup purposes only. You should use other object storage for static hosting. Grab a storage server/vps as low as $5 bandwidth included.
