Microsoft 365 Backup
There’s a misconception that cloud-service-providers guarantee your data. The fact is they stand behind the stability of their infrastructure (with uptime guarantees) – they do not stand behind your data.
Bryley BU/DR for Microsoft 365 tracks your document changes in M365, encrypts the data and creates encrypted, replicable versions at a tier-three data center. This is a true incremental-change backup on a different server. So if something happens to make your data unavailable at the cloud-service-provider, you’re still in good shape.
It’s tempting to no longer practice good data-hygiene, but instead trust in big companies. But doesn’t that sound like a recipe for trouble? Organizations need to treat these Microsoft cloud servers with the same sense of self-preservation they would if the servers were in their own building. That means continuing to follow the 3-2-1 policy – three copies at two locations and one off-site. Imagine keeping the only copies of your company’s data at Google and that data’s hit by ransomware, you will not be able to get anything back. These cloud providers are selling convenience and so have made it appealing and easy for users to be negligent.
Think of cloud-service providers like renting an apartment. The apartment association and management office take care of the infrastructure … the roof, the walls, the plumbing — if a pipe bursts they’ll fix it. But they’re not going to replace your TV or pearls or anything like that. They don’t want that kind of liability. As far as Microsoft or Google is concerned, they stand behind their infrastructure.
So protect your data assets on cloud servers like you would the server in your building, by putting a highly-available backup copy on a different server. This is a backup that will not go down if the first backup does and from which your employees can work if the main service is disrupted. Read the Bryley BU/DR for Microsoft 365 specs here.
