While Office 365 offers an undisputed flexibility with the integration of several solutions, it deeply focuses on the infrastructure management rather than data management. The responsibility for data management and its Availability still belongs to the respective owners leveraging the Office 365 services.
In fact, Office 365 data center uptime refers to the infrastructure rather than data hosted in the data centers. Infrastructure uptime does not include cases where the data center itself can provide an effective way to recover from:
- Accidental deletions
- Data loss / corruption
- Rogue apps / insider threats
