Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

We are using Veeam Backup for O365 to backup all our Sharepoint and OneDrive data to local on-premises file servers. Veeam Backup pulls files from Sharepoint Online every night and it's possible to restore single files or the whole sharepoint. Also the OneDrive folders are backed up.
  • Works independently.
  • Easy handling and setup.
  • Speed and restore time.
  • Flexible license model.
  • Positive impact is that we have the data safe on premise.
  • Possible to restore deleted sharepoints.
When moving our files to a sharepoint, we were searching for a backup solution. It is always possible that users delete data, delete whole sharepoints and we have no backup strategy. Microsoft has a possibility to restore from trash, but only for 30 days.
Rating only 8, because restoring is slow and also it's not possible to connect performant to every NAS System or share.
We do not let users use it. It is only used by IT.
Once we wanted to restore directly to the cloud, a sharepoint with 200 GB should take more then 2 days to be restored, although we have 600 Mbit Upload speed. So we restored to a local server.
Every new Sharepoint or OneDrive is backed up automatically.
We didn't find another tool.
License cost is ok. Tool is easy to use.
