Veeam Backup 365: Manage your data growth and meet Office 365 recovery needs at lower costs

As we know, Microsoft takes responsibility for the Office 365 infrastructure, however many customers still don’t realize that Microsoft employs a Shared Responsibility Model – separating what is their responsibility from what is the customer’s responsibility. This can lead to data loss or data vulnerabilities due to a wide range of causes such as ransomware, accidental deletion, internal security threats and more.

However, two out of the top three biggest problems that IT departments face: data growing out of control and the high cost of storage. So, what is a business to do? They need to protect their Office 365 data, but their storage costs are through the roof!

Enter Veeam’s object storage solution, brought to you in strong partnership with First Technology.

It is no wonder why object storage is on the rise. Given its low cost and relative ease of use; it should be no surprise that 61% of businesses are either using object storage or have it in their integration plans over the next year or two.

Why is object storage so ideal for Office 365 backups? It allows customers to reduce storage costs significantly, leverage unlimited scalability, as well as simplify deployment. Now your customers can take advantage of the benefits of object storage for their Office 365 backups.

Key Differentiators

Broadest object storage support.

Choose any object storage platform that you want, as Veeam supports many object storage platforms, including AWS, Azure, and over 10 S3-compatible platforms, whereas Backup-as-a-Service vendors typically support only one or two cloud storage platforms.

Veeam even supports object storage platforms deployed on-premises, whereas Backup-as-a-Service vendors typically support only cloud-based object storage. Moreover, Veeam also supports backup repositories beyond object storage, whereas Backup-as-a-Service vendors can only store backups on object-based storage.

Object storage flexibility.

Choose any object storage platform that you want as you define your backup infrastructure for Office 365, and add other object storage platforms or switch from one platform to another as you modify your backup strategy for Office 365.

Account flexibility.

Backup-as-a-Service vendors commonly lock organizations into using the vendor’s cloud account, making end-users and Service Providers dependent on that vendor. With Veeam’s backup solution, you have full account flexibility that allows you to use your own object storage account to remain in control of the data.
