Microsoft does not provide a backup of your M365 (previously known as O365) environment as stated here in their Microsoft Services Agreement.

Many Microsoft users are not clear that ultimately it is their responsibility – not to mention strongly advised by Microsoft – to secure their own data. As such, a third-party M365 backup tool is the best way to protect against accidental or malicious file deletion, other user errors, ransomware and data corruption.

These solutions store backups independently from Microsoft servers and enable granular restores of Microsoft Office files, folders and applications. They ensure that you can quickly restore and meet RPO/RTO requirements for Microsoft 365 data.

Why Cloudlake M365 Backup?

Cloudlake® uses the industry’s best tool: Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is the market leader for M365 backup and with good reason. It truly is the most powerful, reliable and comprehensive tool available:

  • Retrieve Microsoft 365 Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business data from a cloud-based instance of M365 and back up the data as often as every five minutes in Microsoft’s native format.
  • Veeam utilises Microsoft Teams APIs to provide a truly purpose-built M365 backup for Microsoft Teams. This enables full control and protection over this critical data, including entire teams, specific channels and settings.
  • Flexible deployment and storage options to deploy on-premise, hybrid or fully cloud-enabled.
