Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is NOW Available
Many multi-tier applications that once had to be hosted on premises are now being deployed within the public cloud. With this adoption, millions of organizations worldwide no longer desire to manage their on-premises Exchange email infrastructure for a multitude of different reasons. The Exchange Online component of Office 365 provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering for businesses to purchase on a subscription basis. To complicate things just slightly, protecting and ensuring the recoverability of this data has been a challenge. Often times, businesses think that just because their data is running in the cloud, it is guaranteed to be available or recoverable. Well, over time, we’ve seen this to be the exact inverse; to ensure that this critical data is available, you must mitigate risk. My good friend and colleague, Hal Yaman, in a previous post, outlined the difference between Availability and Recoverability.
In August at the Next Big Thing event, I had the opportunity to announce, in a technical breakout session, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365. It connects to your Office 365 subscription utilizing the Exchange Web Services (EWS) API. This allows you, as a tenant of Office 365, the ability to store your Exchange mailbox items to an offline repository that utilizes the Jet Blue database format. By utilizing Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange, these backups are able to restore individual items — mailboxes, folders, messages, tasks and contacts — providing flexible recovery options for your end users.
