Office 365 Backup & Recovery in Azure
Protect Office 365 in Azure
Arguably Office 365 offers enough ‘native’ backup functionality to cater for most recovery scenarios. Check out our blog Is Office 365 Backup & Archiving Up to the Job?
However, Microsoft’s own services agreement, states the importance of having a backup plan that involves a third party.
So here’s a way you can get extra peace of mind – especially if you’re now facing a 100% switch to remote working, combined with:
- many laptops that will now be syncing up to OneDrive for Business,
- workers that may be new to working with Teams, SharePoint, etc,
- a massive increase risk in malware attacks, as attackers take advantage of fear & misinformation around the COVID-19 pandemic.
Using your own (or our) Microsoft Azure tenant, you can revolutionise your backup strategy and give your team the ability to respond to restore requests quickly and accurately.
Our dedicated backup as a service (BaaS) lets you deliver a segregated backup and restore service for shared mailboxes, user mailboxes, OneDrive for Business, Teams, Groups, SharePoint site collections and audit logs.
You can also backup the other platforms your business may be relying on, including:
- Virtual machine environments
- Slack Enterprise & Box
- On-premises systems (that would normally use physical backup devices)
What makes this service different?
With no startup costs and the ability to pay based on your month-to-month consumption, this is a great way to get instant protection with zero lock-in.
And unlike backup vendors that only protect mailboxes, HubStor delivers Office 365 data protection across OneDrive for Business, Teams, Groups, mailboxes, SharePoint, and the audit log with performance and scalability for large enterprises.
Fast & Highly Scalable
HubStor delivers the enterprise-class security, reliability and performance demanded by exceptionally large Office 365 tenants.
Customers are achieving sustained ingestion rates of 200+ emails per second and many TBs per day from SharePoint and OneDrive. We can scale higher if needed.
A continuous data protection (CDP) service lets you capture changes in near real time as they occur in SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams site collections, taking the pressure off fitting incremental backups into a nightly run.
Protects Against Ransomware
Ransomware can attack cloud backups.
In the event of an attack, Hubstor’s point-in-time recovery feature enables enterprises to restore their data to a healthy state.
Moreover, as a secure object storage solution that uses AES 256-bit encryption to protect your data at rest and in transit, redundancy and integrated AD authentication, HubStor limits the ability for malware to attack your Office 365 and wider IT infrastructure.
HubStor has provided Oxford Health with the confidence to grow into the cloud safely, knowing all our Office 365 data is backed up and protected within our Azure tenancy, benefiting from Microsoft’s storage flexibility.
