Another advantage to #1 is when you run the O365 server (VBO) as a VM. If the customer does have VBR, that also means he can backup the VBO server (VBR will detect it as a VBO VM) and have the 3-2-1 rule for this workload just like for any other workload you are running.

For the portal. It is correct that today you can build the portal yourself. There is already a nice project on Github by one of our product strategy specialists: https://github.com/nielsengelen/vbo365-rest

That should get you very fast started. We might consider building a portal ourselves specifically for VBO. What functionality would you need in order to use it? (PS: Might means no promises ;-))

Hello Mike,

we have our own Service Portal and will integrate the VBO Portal into it. :-)
I shared the API with our development team but i dont have a current status. We will explore the desired user experience when the projects starts... :-)

Hi Mike,

You ask which functions the web interface should have if in case Veeam would provide it.
I will like to se it happen, so i will list some of the functions i would like to see:

- Single sign on with the users company login
-- to use the users own login, validated by O365 login, and then recognize which mailboxes the user has access to

Restore options
- restore mail directly
- restore mail to another folder
- restore mail to another mailbox(and folder)
- restore mail to PST file

Search functions, with restore options in search results
- search for sender
- search for recipient
- search for subject
- search in body

I would prefer using a web interface created by Veeam, then we don't need to validate every function every time we apply an update.
Have nice day,
Henrik

Thanks for the feedback Henrik (and my apologies for the late reply, it was a very busy Kickoff for me last week :-))

One question around single sign on though. At this moment, you as a service provider will give a login to the end-user. I assume you are not talking about that one. Am I right in understanding that you prefer a O365 login?

Hi Mike,

No problem.
(heard rumors that it was fun, well deserved :-) )

Since "my" installation of VBO has account information to access the customers O365 setup on a administrative level, i was thinking that it should be possible, to have the enduser to enter thier login information to their mail.
With that info our VOB could validate that the user is enabled, and have a mailbox.
Knowing which mailbox the enduser has access, then it can be used to decide which mails are allowed to restore, and present it in the web GUI

Then we don't have the create additional users in our installation, and endusers don't have to manage another user/password.

Does it make sense ?
Have nice day,
Henrik

It certainly makes sense, but it is harder to do. I already discussed this before and I think we all agree that this is very interesting but I can't make any promises when it will hit the product. At this moment our big focus is SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business :-)
