given a score based on how well

code and documentation and
modules are also checked for

Setup Requirements

You need to be running a FreeBSD or Linux system, and have a backblaze account.

After installing this module, you'll want to do the following:

  • Switch to the new b2 user
  • Setup Backblaze b2 auth and create a bucket:
  • Edit manifests/cron.pp: Replace $folder with the folder you want to sync, and $bucketname with your b2 Bucket's name
  • Kick back and relax!


To start, simply download the module, and add: include backblazeb2 to a manifest


I have not added the File directive to store and replace the auth token because that would be #BadOpsec!
