Can I Integrate Synology NAS with Backblaze?


Anyone use Synology with BackBlaze and can share their experience?

I am thinking of getting a Synology DS 923+ to use with either BackBlaze or AWS S3 (Glacier). I prefer the former since it is cheaper, but don't know well it integrates with Synology. Thanks in advance!
