Protect and restore Salesforce data and metadata
Many organizations don’t believe that Salesforce needs to be protected, and that their data and metadata are safe in a cloud somewhere. We disagree – and so does Salesforce.
Salesforce data backup is critical to prevent data loss, ensure compliance and enable fast recovery.
Deploy your Salesforce backup anywhere you choose, strategically separating your backup from the source to avoid backup and storage lock-in.
Recover exactly what you need, whenever and wherever you need it, with intelligent recovery options for both bulk and granular restore scenarios.
A custom-engineered Salesforce backup solution specifically for Salesforce data and metadata, including granular scheduling, near-continuous backup and efficient use of Salesforce APIs.
Organizations rarely think about backing up their Salesforce data until it is too late. Eventually, there will be some sort of incident - an accidental deletion, data loader mishap, or integration error - that will cause business-critical data loss. When this happens to you, how quickly will you be able to recover?
Protecting Salesforce is a Shared Responsibility. Even though Salesforce manages the infrastructure, it is your responsibility to protect your organization from Salesforce data loss and corruption.
Salesforce agrees with this: “It is important for Salesforce customers to develop a routine data backup strategy as part of their overall data management and security model.”

Salesforce recommends that their customers develop a Salesforce backup strategy as part of their overall data management and security model.
Salesforce keeps a copy of your data as part of their disaster recovery (DR) plan (but not yours) and this does not include your metadata. If a major data incident occurs, you can ask Salesforce to send your data in CSV files, which can take up to six weeks, and then the process be to manually upload this data back into Salesforce. There is also a fee attached to this process.
Yes. Veeam Backup for Salesforce requires that 100% of Salesforce user licenses be protected.
Salesforce user licenses can fluctuate often since employees move in and out of an organization. It is a best practice to provide yourself with a small buffer between the exact number of used licenses and the total amount of licenses within an organization. Plus, as a data protection best practice, it is recommended that you license Salesforce backup software for the total number of Salesforce licenses, not just the total number of used Salesforce licenses.
A license is not required for other license types in Salesforce, including:
Chatter Free, Chatter Only, Chatter External
Partner Community, Partner Community Login, Customer Community Plus
