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...
