Office 365 Cloud Backup
Does Microsoft backup your Office 365 data?
No, there is a very common misconception that Microsoft takes care of everything. This perception puts your critical data and entire business at considerable risk. It is true that they take care of the physical cloud infrastructure and connectivity to give you a very reliable service. However, your data stored in their cloud is YOUR responsibility. You need to ensure that your Office 365 mailboxes, SharePoint and OneDrive data are adequately protected.
Why Backup your Office 365 data?
Version history and recycle bins can only offer basic protection. There is also the issue of what happens if a user account is deleted. If it is purged from the Office 365 database, it cannot be recovered.
Office 365 has a very basic and rigid retention policy and is simply not designed for all scenarios. If deleted data has fallen outside of the retention period, it has gone forever.
