Microsoft does not backup your data. As Microsoft say “It’s Your Data. You Own It. You Control It.
Your Office365 data is more likely going to be lost due to human error, accidental deletions etc rather than any infrastructure problems that Microsoft may have. In all of the years that Trunk has been providing I.T. solutions we have never had an instance where the server platform couldn’t be recovered but plenty of instances where someone asks if an email from x days, weeks, months, years can be recovered. More and more businesses are ditching traditional on premise file shares and moving data to Sharepoint. This makes having an Office365 backup strategy even more important.
Office365 is a great suite of products. We use it, and a lot of our clients use it. Microsoft’s platform is redundant and their infrastructure has global reach. The chances of Microsoft’s infrastructure failing and your ability to access your data failing reduces all the time.
In our opinion the cost of not backing up Office365 far outweighs the cost of backing it up. We are partnered with a backup company called “Keepit” and successfully backup a number of our client’s (including our our own) Email and Sharepoint platforms. For us, and our clients, its about peace of mind.
