Add Blobber

This page provides step by step instructions on adding a "blobber" into an existing allocation using Blimp.

Occasionally, a blobber (which serves as a storage provider) may experience malfunctions, exhibit faults, or suffer from reduced performance due to its distant geographical location from yours. In such instances, you may find it necessary to either include a new blobber or replace the existing one.


  1. Navigate to the Blimp website and choose your preferred allocation type, which could be Multi-Cloud Storage, S3 Server, or Cloud Migration.

  2. Locate the three dots associated with your selected allocation. These three dots are conveniently highlighted within a black box in the screenshot below.

  1. Click on the "Add Blobber" option.

  1. From the available list of blobbers, select the one that best suits your needs.

  1. Finally, click "Confirm" to complete the process.
