Microsoft 365 Backup Services
Microsoft Office is a popular business productivity suite used by small and medium enterprises in Canada. With Office 365, you can share files and spreadsheets, collaborate in real-time, work online from the office or remotely. It comes as the perfect business cloud, but has a shortcoming in backup and recovery.
Pure IT recommends backing up your data systems and applications as regularly as possible. This is the only sure way to help your business recover from a catastrophic data loss. We provide a robust backup strategy for your Microsoft 365 platform. Before we delve into those details, let’s get into Microsoft 365 backup and recovery details.
Microsoft 365 Backup and Recovery
Microsoft comes as a highly secure platform with built-in data protection capabilities. It is based on a solid service level agreement (SLA) that provides a 99.9% guarantee of uptime. As such, it covers common causes of application downtime, especially data center-related outages. Microsoft boasts multiple data centers all over the world, all of which host redundant network architecture. When there is an outage in one data center, one of the others can serve as a backup.
Additionally, Microsoft offers Database Availability Group (DAG) technology to protect the Exchange Online Mailbox data. This ensures you can access data from your networks and systems whenever you need it.
Furthermore, the enterprise E3 to E5 Office 365 packages are well-equipped with data loss prevention capabilities to help your business stay in compliance. But all this is not enough to provide your business with adequate backup for your data and applications. While the platform protects your business from the incidents that may happen at the data centers, it has some shortcomings at the business level. You are at risk of losing data if:
- You or your team members accidentally delete files and close the application.
- A malicious actor destroys sensitive or crucial business information
- Someone without authorized permission accesses your company networks and data and deletes files
Microsoft 365 Retention Policy
Microsoft 365 has a Deleted Items Folder that is subject to the retention policy. The platform only allows you 30-day retention period to recover deleted items, after which they will be gone forever, even from the recycle bin. Besides, Microsoft SharePoint is only backed up every 12 hours, with a 14-day retention period, depending on your license level.
Microsoft clarifies that they are not responsible for your data, a clear indication that you need to take proactive steps to back up your data. For the best results, you don’t need to do this alone, neither should you use a trial and error method before finally settling on the most reliable backup solution.
