Today we'll talk about Office 365 backup and its importance as it is not a public cloud provider that will help you to recover your data quickly and efficiently when you need it. In fact, your cloud service provider only provides you with the barebone infrastructure, storage, network, etc, without a possibility to recover granular way your data.
There are many online backup solutions and today we'll have a look at a cloud-to-cloud Saas Backup solution, which means that it’s completely cloud-based, from Altaro.
Altaro Office 365 Backup is a solution for backing up and restoring Microsoft 365 mailboxes, files stored in OneDrive and SharePoint. With a monthly subscription, you will be able to manage all backups and control mailboxes centrally through the cloud-based online management console.
This solution schedules automatic data backups as the days go by and save them in a secure cloud backup location – Microsoft Azure. In addition, support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Why do I need to backup Office 365 items?
Well, there is a common misconception that Microsoft fully backs up Office 365 data as part of the subscription, but it doesn't. So it's up to you as an IT admin to protect your company's data. and be able to recover them the granular way.
Microsoft does not provide a native option to back up Office 365 boxes and files – Microsoft is responsible for providing the infrastructure necessary to keep Office 365 running, but it is the customer's responsibility to protect their Office data 365.
Microsoft can't help with unexpected data loss. Things can go bad, your files can get corrupted by some viruses or crippled by ransomware. And, in the past, we've even seen Azure crashes completely with customers' data loss.
Having a strong backup solution in place ensures that even if mailbox items or files go missing from the network or become unavailable, the customer has access to a backup copy, thus eliminating problems or repercussions that could arise from missing data.
