Backblaze presents the Postman collection

SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 24 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Backblaze has announced its latest step to support developers where and how they want to work: a new Postman collection for the Backblaze S3 compatible API. Postman’s platform makes it easy to build, test, and use APIs. Offering improved documentation for the Backblaze S3 compatible API on Postman opens Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage to a wider audience of developers who are looking for a simple, affordable object storage service that won’t lock them in or penalize them not for the use of their data.

“The S3-compatible API is important to so many developers. We don’t want to get in the way of developers or add steps to their process,” Pat Patterson, Chief Developer Evangelist at Backblaze explained. “By making documentation and testing available in places like Postman, where our customers already operate, we’re gladly knocking down one more barrier to getting their work done.”

Backblaze’s Postman Collection unlocks tremendous potential for testing and using B2 Cloud Storage in a wide variety of applications. For example, developers can now quickly interact with the S3-compatible API through Postman’s “Run in Postman” button, essentially enabling a one-click start to work with B2 Cloud Storage. The collection also allows developers to easily access documentation in accordance with user workflows.

“Vendors like Backblaze care about the developer experience of learning and implementing new technologies. More than 17 million developers already use Postman as their go-to tool for working with APIs, and sharing ‘a public workspace in the Postman API network has become a major issue for technology providers’, Joyce Lin, Developer Relations Manager at Postman, commented. “By offering robust APIs supported by interactive documentation in Postman, Backblaze opens the door to easier integration for a large number of developers.”

From the launch of the S3-compatible API in 2020 to the first Backblaze Developer Day in 2021, and the recent launch of a Developer Evangelism team, Backblaze has established a steady and growing cadence of community outreach and support. developers. “Look for a steady stream of resources, demos, videos, and guides created by developers for developers on the Backblaze Blog,” Patterson added.
