Ensuring Office 365 Backup in a Cloud Dependent Business Environment

by | Feb 24, 2020

Data is the lifeblood of every business. Office 365 (O365) has the power to transform the way organisations work.


But the cloud, and O365, carry risks. Is your O365 backed up? IntraLAN help you deliver a truly uncompromising O365 environment, securing your journey at every stage…

Microsoft may have built a resilient platform used by over 155 million business users but ultimately, it’s your company’s responsibility to keep control of and backup the data you own. This is because Office 365 has limited backup & retention policies that can only assist with situational data loss, it is not intended to be an all-encompassing solution.

Having an additional backup system in place is optional but considering cloud services are increasingly replacing the standard on-premise IT we recommend having one in place to prevent data loss affecting your business.

Here is an extract from Microsoft’s Office 365 Service Contract:

“We strive to keep the Services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages. In the event of an outage or disruption to the Service, you may temporarily not be able to retrieve Your Content. We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.”

We offer a cloud-to-cloud backup solution that includes your Office 365 Mailboxes, Calendar and Contacts, Microsoft SharePoint (including Teams sites) and OneDrive. We provide real-time copies of your key Office 365 tenant services which is kept completely separate from the Office 365 infrastructure. Your data is backed-up incrementally every night and can be kept for as long as you want.

Having an additional backup ensures your data is protected from security threats and service disruptions, enabling your business to continue as normal.
