Veeam Backup for Office 365 Primary Use Case

Kevin Heron - PeerSpot reviewer
Technical Operations Manager at Ocient, Inc.

We use Veeam because — while Microsoft provides a terrific environment called Office 365 — they do not back up files that are stored there. The files most customers are concerned about are OneDrive and SharePoint files, but they often overlook their mailboxes and the Exchange piece of Office 365. It is the customer's responsibility to actually back that data up, which Microsoft does not do a good job in sharing with you. We had moved all of our file server shares to OneDrive and SharePoint, and we were just over a terabyte of data. To make sure they were being backed up properly, I implemented Veeam Office 365 Backup.

We have Veeam in place for Office 365 backup and restore. We use it for mail backup and restore, SharePoint, and Teams. We were still struggling with the backup of OneDrive, which is still a discussion. We are using its latest version.

Our primary use case is the backup of 365 objects and emails. At the moment, you are just testing Veeam. We are using it for production, and we are running a few productions on APIs.

We are distributors for Veeam.

The use case for this solution is for backup. 

The challenging part is that people don't understand the importance of having a backup of Office 365. They think that their data is on the cloud and it's safe. They don't feel the need to back it up. Once they learn about the Microsoft shared responsibility model, they find out that Microsoft is not responsible for the data.

If, for example, an employee deletes his emails because he is angry with the management and leaves the company, the company will need a backup to restore at some point.

There are various reasons for backing up Office 356. There could be a cyberattack, and there are compliance requirements. 

Even if Microsoft will protect their data, they will still need a copy of it, and the software will help with that. 

Some people have a hybrid setup and will not only have Office 365, but they will be using a mix of Exchange on-premises and Office 365 that they need a backup of. 

The most important part is to have your data accessible and restorable at any point.

We primarily install the solution for our clients. 

The solution is used for backup purposes, specifically for Office 365. By default, depending on how it is configured, it will back up every eight to ten days. Beyond that, if you need specific mail recovery or complete mail recovery, you can do that as well.

Veeam Backup is primarily used by companies already using Veeam to expand their backup to protect their data or who have moved to Office 365 and want to be able to backup to Office 365 in the cloud.

We primarily use the solution for backup. We leverage it for security reasons so that we feel safe about the security of our data. Microsoft doesn't guarantee anything. If they lose your data, then they lose your data, and that's it. This gives us a sense that we won't lose anything if something happens.

As the solution is cloud-based, we are always using the latest version.

The solution allows a person to keep his data third party when it comes to compliance requirements, thus necessitating that it only be backed up at a certain place. The solution is used wholly for compliance requirements.
