Thinking about Polish M365 users i prepared short article about Veeam Backup for MS365.

Here is English summary.

Microsoft’s Shared Responsibility Model, in the simplest words, says “Your data – your matter.”

Many people aren’t aware of that and think they are protected against data loss. They are partially right, but only in case of internal Microsoft infrastructure failures. Microsoft replicates its regions between each other to maintain the continuity of the services. But replication and backup are different things. If your file gets damaged, it will be replicated in its current state, and you will not be able to restore it. If you delete a file accidentally, and 93 days are left (the time of MS Data retention), you will not be able to restore it. So how do you cope with it?

The solution is Veeam Backup for M365, a great tool that allows you to protect data stored in M365, Hybrid, or On-Prem Environment. The interface is simple; job configuration is easy, even for inexperienced users. The only thing that may cause problems is Azure AD Application configuration, which should be described Step by Step in documentation without sending us to Microsoft Documentation, which shows the general way to create AD Applications. So, if you don’t want to lose your data, and further your money, you should protect it, and Veeam Backup for M365 will be a very good choice. 

Enjoy and Have a nice Day! (Or Night)
