Veeam updates Office 365 backup solution
New version of Veeam Backup for Office 365 adds new capabilities
Veeam has released a new version of its popular backup solution for Microsoft Office 365.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 Version 2 now includes protection for Microsoft OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, and SharePoint on-premises installations, in addition to Exchange Online and Exchange on-premises.
The original solution is in use with over 35,000 organisations, protecting 4.1 million Office 365 mailboxes, the company said, and version 2 builds on this with 50 enhancements to protect Office 365 data and ensure availability of Microsoft Office 365 applications.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v2 protects data inside the Office 365 infrastructure, enhancing the automatic data replication Microsoft provides across its data centres. The combination of Veeam and Microsoft solutions enable companies to have complete control of their data and helps ensure availability to users across Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
Companies have the option to back up Office 365 on premise or to the cloud, on Microsoft Azure, AWS or IBM cloud.
New features include data protection for OneDrive for Business and SharePoint, and ease-of-use improvements.
"With our latest release, Veeam extends our long-term commitment to provide additional security controls and backup of Microsoft Office 365 data," said Danny Allan, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. "No company with Office 365 should be without Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v2. With Veeam, the enterprise remains in complete control and data remains available and protected."
