Alternatives To Amazon ? Wasabi

I've been looking into the Amazon S3 ooption and have started to go off the idea because of Amazon's ethical track record This has led me to research alternatives, there are a number of other S3 providers out there .
Wasabi looks great - far cheaper and designed to be 100% bit compatible with Amazon S3. This means any storage application that uses Amazon S3 can also use Wasabi without any code changes to the storage application.
Both Wasabi and Amazon S3 offer high durability: eleven 9s (99.999999999%). However, there are several important price and performance differences:
Price: Wasabi charges roughly 80% less than Amazon S3 for storage and has a much simpler pricing model. The only charges from Wasabi are storage (there are no additional charges for HTTP PUTs, GETs, DELETEs, etc. and with the Wasabi Unlimited Free Egress pricing plan, there is no charge for egress) Has anyone tried any of the alternatives to Amazon S3 ?

I'm interested in this as well. I'm not happy with Amazon for free speech issues as well.

This is interesting. I'd like to know more and will research it when time permits.

How about BackBlaze B2 - I use that at the moment and would love to see it added to Sytist in addition to the S3 option for keeping the Hi Rez Images off my dedicated host

Tim -

 have you given any consideration to adding Backblaze as an alternative to Amazon's backup service for image storage?

I've had other photographers recommend back blaze as a backup, more affordable than amazon, it would be really beneficial to be able to use it to store images, if that's something you could do
