Backblaze + Ghost

How to use Ghost and Backblaze together

Integrate secure image storage into Ghost using Backblaze - deployed using a custom storage adapter

Backblaze is a personal and business cloud storage solution that offers secure storage. It is a paid service that can be integrated with Ghost to override the default image storage method so that all images that are inserted into Ghost Admin are saved in Backblaze.

Full Backblaze storage adapter

By default, Ghost stores any images uploaded to Ghost Admin locally to its filesystem, and delivers them via the same Ghost front-end service which delivers Ghost themes. It’s possible to replace this layer entirely using a custom storage adapter.

A custom storage adapter allows Ghost to upload and serve images directly to/from external services like Backblaze. Once you have deployed your storage adapter, you can use the Backblaze media library interface to manage the images and assets on your Ghost site.
