The back-up service is based on VEEAM technology  

Most of the customers of Primend use the services of Office 365 in their daily work. Such services are Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Teams and Power BI.  

Why use a separate back-up service?  

Microsoft ensures short-term back-up for Office 365 and Microsoft 365 services:

For Exchange Online the maximum period is about 90 days

For SharePoint Online and OneDrive it is about 60 days

There is currently no back-up service for Microsoft Teams

What is VEEAM Back-up for Microsoft Office 365?  

It provides a possibility for back-up of all the Office 365 tenant, including either all the services or only the selected services  

It is possible to back up data on an affordable Azure Blob disk array by Microsoft Azure

A customer may set up the back-up period as desired

Recovery is fast

Also enables recovery of individual files

3 things are required for use of cloud backup service:  

Veeam Back-up for Office 365 license

A location where the back-up should be created (Azure, another cloud service, own server centre)

A partner to set up Veeam and provide support

How is Veeam Back-up for Office 365 licensed and priced?    

The license price for one Veeam user is €1.31  
(The Veeam user license is user-based, the number of users can be changed on an ongoing basis and the price is calculated on a monthly basis)

1TB of data costs ~€20 in the Azure cloud environment
(We recommend backing up data in cloud environment Azure Blob by Microsoft Azure)

Monitoring and administration of back-up service per one tenant costs €100 

Initial setup of the service is free  


If business so requires and you find that the existing Office 365 back-up is insufficient or you would like to back up data during a longer period, we recommend implementing the back-up service of Primend based on VEEAM technology.
