In this episode of the ARCHITECHT Show, Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince and Backblaze CEO Gleb Budman explainn the Bandwidth Alliance -- a Cloudflare-led initiative to slash the cost of moving data from one cloud service to another. The duo discuss the downfalls of so-called data egress fees, and how eliminating or drastically reducing them between mutual Cloudflare and Bandwidth Alliance members can help users take advantage of all the cloud has to offer. Of particular note are the smaller players that benefit, such as Backblaze, Packet and DigitalOcean, but also the involvement of Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
