A lot of customers have the misconception that when they host their data on the cloud, the cloud providers actually protect the data. Meanwhile, cloud providers are generally responsible for the availability of the service. The data is always the responsibility of whoever owns it. Nobody can ensure the data will always be there. So there are many news cases that happened. Sometimes people lose data on Office 365. For example, some emails get deleted and they seek the attention of Office 365. On average it has been discovered that it takes about 140 days to discover the email was deleted. Employees can get disgruntled all of a sudden. There have also been hardware attacks on Office 365, even though there is cybersecurity in Microsoft. Nothing is bulletproof in the cybersecurity industry, so it's always good to have a second copy of your data. A really good feature I saw is backing up company emails for the enterprises. This offers an easy ability to restore to the cloud. The other really amazing part is that it doesn't just stop at Office 365. For example, some people have a hybrid setup. They have non-private exchange email software and then they have a hybrid with the Office 365. It is useful for that use case because it can back up both of them at the same time. View full review »

What I like in this particular module within Veeam is that it allows you to restore mailboxes selectively. Instead of having to restore all the mailboxes that you have backed up, you can be more targeted. Let's say you had a request from the vice president to get their entire mailbox restored. They are typically the guys who blow up their mailboxes. I could restore just their mailbox from the backup and no one else's. But it gets even more granular as I can also restore individual folders inside their mailbox. It gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of what you are able to restore. In SharePoint and OneDrive, you are able to restore down to the file level, which is really handy. It gives you a lot of restore options. Their GUI is just stupid easy to use. You basically go in, you browse the different modules — whether it is Exchange or SharePoint or OneDrive as the parent — you click on your tenant name, then you go to exchange the mailboxes, and then you go under the individual user that you want to restore. That could be the whole mailbox, or a folder, or whatever. It just takes a couple of clicks and it is done. It just works. View full review »

Its ability to restore at the item level is very valuable. It is very strong at that. In the past, we had to restore a lot of data only for a couple of items. We can now restore an item as well as an email, which is good for productivity. View full review »

The time it takes to make a backup is very good. It's the most valuable aspect of the solution. It really doesn't take a long time. It's very efficient. The interface on the solution is very good. The support offered by both Veeam and our third party supplier is excellent. The solution is very easy to use. It's not complicated at all. I can add the backup to my virtual machine with Veeam integrators and it's good. Generally, it's easy to integrate Veem to other products. View full review »

We just mainly use the solution for a backup. We haven't tested too many features. The mailboxes and the site mount correctly, so, we can retrieve data from it. It's rather simple. Thus far, that's the best feature. View full review »

The solution is easy to use. It's very simple and clients find it very easy to find all objects and things they need with the Veeam Explorer. The solution is very simple in terms of backing up objects as well. With Veeam, a lot of features are built-in, as opposed to some competitors, such as Avamar. It's also easier to use than Avamar if you were to compare them. View full review »

The replication option that this solution offers has been quite good. In the next version, they're going to restore some newer capabilities. It's a bit convoluted but I think moving forward, there will be some nice features. View full review »
