Just because a file is in the cloud and readily available now, doesn’t mean it’s backed up and retained. This especially applies for Microsoft 365 services such as Exchange Online, OneDrive, SharePoint, etc. Microsoft themselves recommend making backups of your data in their T&C’s:
In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data that you’ve stored. We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services, or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.
Hence the popularity of cloud-to-cloud Microsoft 365 backup solutions such as StorageCraft’s Cloud Backup for Microsoft 365.
But what if:
- You are uncomfortable with your backed-up data being handled and stored by a third party?
- You are concerned about the availability of the data, and how data sovereignty laws affect it.
- The amount of control provided by these cloud-to-cloud services, were not granular enough?
This is when the feature set for ManageEngine’s RecoveryManager Plus, shines through the cloud (pun intended).
RecoveryManager Plus allows you to back up your Microsoft 365 services (including Exchange Online, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams) to your on-premises repository. This puts you back in control of your data.
You can schedule backups to happen during non-business hours, define a retention period and perform item-level restoration from the on-prem backup, direct to the cloud.
RecoveryManager Plus is also a backup and recovery solution for your on-prem environment, allowing granular backup and restoration for Exchange and Active Directory. It supports multiple Exchange organisations from a single console, and even restoration of mailbox items to mailboxes in different tenants – including to Exchange Online and vice-versa.
The comprehensive AD object backup capabilities allow you to backup and restore objects (i.e. users, groups, GPOs, OUs, etc) partially or completely, and even complete AD schemas.
Backups are incremental and recoveries are performed without having to restart your Domain Controller. You can roll back your entire AD to a previous backup point, undo all changes made to objects after a point in time, while ensuring availability of your DCs.
Worried about having your Microsoft 365 data backed up in the public cloud?
Does putting the management of your AD backups, back under your control sound like the right solution?
