Whether you have completely migrated to Office 365, have a hybrid Exchange and Office 365 deployment or offer Office 365 backup services, your business objectives remain the same. You must remain in control of your data and you need Office 365 backup and recovery at your fingertips.
One of the most vulnerable situations for IT is when your only option is to send a support ticket and wait. Don’t let this be you.
Veeam® Backup for Microsoft Office 365 eliminates the risk of losing access to your Exchange Online email data and ensures Availability to your users.
Microsoft Office 365 enables your Always-On Enterprise™ to work anywhere, anytime, without the need to host your own email infrastructure. It also provides a great way to minimize your on-premises footprint and free up IT resources. Even though Microsoft hosts the infrastructure, this doesn’t replace your responsibility to maintain a backup of your Office 365 data.
With Office 365, it’s your data — you control it — and it is your responsibility to protect it.
With Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, you can:
You need to securely backup Office 365 email data to another location for a variety of reasons (i.e. to follow the 3-2-1 Rule of backup, to facilitate eDiscovery and to meet internal policies and compliance requirements). The most important reason being to mitigate risk and have the peace-of-mind that you’ll be able to restore your users’ data when needed!
With Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, you can retrieve Office 365 Exchange Online mailbox items (email, calendar and contacts*) including public folders from a cloud-based instance of Office 365 and uniquely back up this mailbox data into the same format that Microsoft Exchange uses natively — an archive database based on Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), also known as the Jet Blue database. You can also backup Exchange on-premises utilizing the same APIs as Office 365, reducing the impact to your running Exchange infrastructure and allowing more frequent backups of your users’ email data.
You can also store your backups in the location of your choice — including on-premises, in a hyperscale public cloud (i.e. Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services) or with a local service provider. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 even supports unique and localized versions of Office 365, including support for U.S. Government (DoD and non-DoD), Office 365 Germany and Office 365 China.
Restore Office 365 emails from a Veeam backup.
Never settle for less than fast, efficient restore of Office 365 mailbox items for granular recovery.
Built-in Veeam Explorer™ for Microsoft Exchange allows for quick search and recovery of individual mailbox items residing in either archived Office 365 content or on-premises Exchange backups. Mailbox items can be restored directly to an Office 365 mailbox, an on-premises Exchange mailbox, saved as a file, emailed as an attachment or exported as a PST.
Without a local copy of your data, retrieving emails for regulatory or compliance reasons can be costly and time consuming, and can ultimately present a major disruption to normal business operations.
But, not with Veeam! You can leverage the familiar, advanced search capabilities and the flexible recovery and export options of Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange to perform eDiscovery on Office 365 email archives — just as easily as you would with an on-premises Exchange server backup.
Compliance is a big driver for the need to backup Office 365. With an Office 365 backup, you can keep your email data as long as you need — even if that length equates to “forever.”
With Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, you can store data based on long-term retention policies for regulatory or compliances needs. With granular advanced search and find functionality, you can ensure you recover exactly what you need, not more than you need.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 delivers unmatched scalability, providing a multi-repository, multi-tenant architecture enabling protection of larger Office 365 deployments with a single installation, while also empowering service providers to deliver Office 365 backup services.
In addition, you can minimize overhead, improve recovery times and reduce costs with comprehensive automation with full PowerShell and RESTful API support for all functionality as well as self-service restore for service provider’s customers.
Many of you have yet to migrate all of your email users to Office 365, and such a migration may take years in large organizations. Or for service providers, have some customers using Office 365 and some using on-premises exchange. Thus, you need a solution that can cover both Office 365 and your on-premises Exchange instances.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 also allows you to protect hybrid-cloud email deployments as well as migrate mailbox data between Office 365 and on-premises Exchange.
Also, Veeam Backup & Replication™ supports application-aware processing of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 servers, enabling creation of consistent backups of Office 365 archives and streamlining eDiscovery and mailbox item-level restores from such backups.
