Pros and Cons

  • The product is simple to set up with step by step instructions.
  • Licensing is straightforward and cost effective.
  • Exploring backups and recovery are quick and easy to test.
  • Deleting users can be tricky. Multiple PowerShell scripts must be run to remove data and license from the platform.
  • When a backup for an object fails there is no clear reason why.
  • No full screen mode that I have found so results windows are hard to read.

Pros and Cons

  • Allows for backups of Microsoft Office 365 to be stored anywhere--locally on-premises or in the cloud
  • Backs up Sharepoint, OneDrive, Exchange Online, and Teams files
  • Backs up and restores files with the same ease and reliability as Veeam Backup and Recovery
  • Restoring files or emails is granular, so there's no need for large bulk restores when you just need a single file/email recovered
  • The initial seeding of backups, especially for large environments, can take a long time--understand your backup sizes ahead of time (this is less a function of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 than of Internet physics)
  • Backups sometimes take longer than I want, but I'm impatient and mostly blame Microsoft.
  • I wish Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 was integrated in Veeam Backup and Recovery

Pros and Cons

  • VBfMO365 integrates with our existing Veeam backups of VMware.
  • I can dump search results to a PST.
  • You can see *all* e-mail, and this means the app must be treated as a tier-0 trust item.
  • It includes public folders.
  • Searching is not fast.
  • Teams/SharePoint/OneDrive data is in there, but it's hard to find.
  • You must have Outlook installed on your management computer to export a PDF. There may be licensing issues if you're using a privileged access workstation, which you definitely should be with this kind of view of all comms.

Pros and Cons

  • Restoring lost emails immediately.
  • Restoring lost SharePoint files immediately.
  • I can check if the email or file existed.
  • It is difficult to sometimes add the correct site, due to how our consultant setup SharePoint.
  • Sometimes the main account loses correct user rights to Office 365 but it is pretty easy to correct.

Pros and Cons

  • Backs up cloud-based mail, Teams, and Sharepoint content using a single configuration.
  • Object-level restore capabilities.
  • Allows for enterprise-wide setup so additional users don't need configured as they added.
  • Initial configuration can be complex and documentation does not always align with the current state of Microsoft's frequently-changing infrastructure.
  • Certain parts of the Enterprise setup need repeated after any updates to Veeam components, but this is not made clear following the update, so you may see post-update failures.
  • Requires separate repository configuration from existing Veeam instances, and does not integrate into an existing Veeam presence.
  • Does not have an option for sending backups to tape, and Veeam B&R can't see Veeam O365 backup jobs to smoothly allow for setting this up.

Pros and Cons

  • Fire and forget - the backup operation runs autonomously.
  • Very fast restores.
  • Allows us to backup to various cloud solutions.
  • As cloud storage is not built in then it is complex to set up the cloud side of things.
  • Maxes out CPU and RAM so cannot run anything else on the same VM.

Pros and Cons

  • ORG Backups
  • Restores for archiving
  • Managing jobs that hang gets messy, and the solution doesn't seem polished.
  • Logging is just not conducive to troubleshooting, and 9/10 times you have to open a support ticket.

  • I have not had any issues with the software since installing it.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to setup and use.
  • It mounts the backup fast and gives you an easy to use UI for restoring files and/or folders.
  • Backups all the services that we use in Office 365.
  • No outages so far.
  • Instead of "Backup everything" I would like the ability to "Backup everything Teams," "Backup everything Exchange," etc. Since we aren't backing up all user accounts I have to manually add new Teams to a second job.
  • When buying more licenses you have to merge the license files together in the portal; this could be done better.
  • Reports could be more detailed when something goes wrong.
