When we released Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 in July, we saw a huge adoption rate and a large inquiry on running the solution within Azure. It is with great pleasure, we can announce that Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is now available in the Azure Marketplace!
A simple deployment model
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 within Azure falls under the BYOL (Bring Your Own License) model, which means you only have to buy the amount of licenses needed besides the Azure infrastructure costs.
The deployment is easy. Just define your project and instance details combined with an administrator login and you’re good to go. You will notice a default size will be selected, however, this can always be redefined. Keep in mind it is advised to leverage the minimum system requirements which can be found in the User Guide.
Once you’ve added your disks and configured the networking, you’re good to go and the Azure portal will even share you details on the Azure infrastructure costs such as the example below for a Standard A4 v2 VM.
If you are wondering on how to calculate the amount of storage needed for Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive data, Microsoft provides great reports for this within the Microsoft 365 admin center under the reports option.
Once the VM has been deployed, you can leverage RDP and are good to go with a pre-installed VBO installation. Keep in mind that by default, the standard retention on the repository is set to 3 years, so you may need to modify this to adjust to your organization’s needs.
Two ways to get started!
You can provision Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 in Azure and bring a 30-day trial key with you to begin testing.
You can also deploy the solution within Azure and back up all your Office 365 data free forever – limited to a maximum of 10 users and 1TB of SharePoint data within your organization.
