Quotas

Post by wessexit » Oct 16, 2017 8:51 am

Hi,

Are there any plans to introduce quotas into the Office 365 backup product similar to the cloud connect tenant quotas in VBR?

Thanks,

Richard.

There are currently no plans for this. How would you like to see this implemented if we would add it? Or is this already aimed for the upcoming SharePoint & Onedrive for Business support?

It doesn't have to be particularly sophisticated... you could simply add a quota feature to the repository. Generally a client would only have one Office 365 tenant (or "Organisation" as defined in the Veeam Backup for O365 GUI).

A more advanced approach would be to add the concept of a customer (similar to a "tenant" in VBR), assign the quota to the customer, then associate Organisations (office 365 tenants) to that customer.

I don't recall seeing any mention of quotas in the threads about the upcoming release including SharePoint & OneDrive support, but you'd probably be in a better position to advise...

Thanks,

Richard.

Richard,

Just to be sure. You mean something like: Each customer can have a maximum backup of x GB? Or similar? Or a Quota per organization?

I think the use case where a customer has more than one organisation (Office 365 tenant) is pretty unlikely in which case it doesn't matter whether the quota is applied to the customer or the organisation. If a customer can only have one organisation (Office 365 tenant) though then there probably isn't much point in having a separate customer entity within the application...

Hi

Unfortunately, there is no way in the current version to put a quota on an Office 365 repository. Is this planned in an upcoming release? I think this is a mandatory feature for service providers.

Quota support won't be available in the upcoming version 4 but your feedback is noted. Could you tell us a bit more on how you would like to see this implemented? On a per account setting, per repository...?

By the way, I kind of feat this is a bad idea, even for service providers. Backup of O365 data is not like backup of a VM. In case you hit your quota, basically the latest backup of that VM can not be sent to the service provider anymore. With O365 it is different and you will reach a state where you will have restore points that have partially email, files, sites... So after you hit a quota, you will have real issues restoring data because there will always be missing information in your mailbox, OneDrive folder or Site.

Please add my vote to have some sort of quota feature to the Veeam Office 365 backup product. As a service provider, this feature is a must for us. We sell to clients based on storage consumption that they purchase from us. We don't care what they backup with Veeam 365. Without a way to put some sort of limit per organization, this makes it very hard on us.

Mike Resseler makes a valid point regarding the partial files and whatnot but I'm sure something can be worked out. Even if it's something basic like sending out warning level threshold alerts when capacity is at 75% or something.
