Veeam extends Office 365 back-up

Veeam has made it easier to back up larger Office 365 deployments, and revealed plans to provide back-up for more than just email.

Veeam Backup for Office 365 v1.5, announced today at VeeamOn 2017, provides a multi-tenant architecture for protecting larger Office 365 deployments with a single installation. It also allows Veeam cloud and service providers (VCSPs) to provide their clients with Office 365 back-up services.

Veeam vice-president of cloud and alliance strategy Danny Allan said Veeam Backup for Office 365 v1.5 was designed for VCSPs to sell alongside Office 365.

According to the company, 11,000 organisations were using Veeam Backup for Office 365 just four months since its release.

Version 1.5 also provides enhanced automation options via a RESTful API and the PowerShell SDK.

Version 2.0 will add support for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

Allan told iTWire that this capability was among those most frequently requested by customers.

According to Veeam global cloul group vice-president Paul Mattes, this would allow back-up to be controlled at the user, group or site level. Restoring an item would be as easy as right-clicking it in the list of backed-up items.

Mattes drew attention to the difference between availability and recoverability. While Office 365 is unlikely to be offline for an extended period, it doesn't provide fine-grained recoverability, for example when a file has been accidentally or mistakenly deleted. But that is exactly what Veeam Backup for Office 365 can do.
