It would be highly appreciated if you could take part in the poll above. The main goal for this poll is to understand what the primary reason(s) is for Office 365 protection to improve future versions. Thanks a lot!

Other reason: upsell from Veeam B&R, revenue, sell hardware for VBO Server / Repository or sell a VM on Azure in a different region from O365 data

Same reasons we use VBR - in case stuff gets messed up ;)

Mostly compliance reasons, but we also know users will be users and delete stuff they don't want to ....

Other reason maybe that Outlook doesn’t backup emails older than 30 days.

In newly published procurements, one requirement is that a supplier must be able to hand over all customer data at request within 24 hours.

Other reason: I trust Microsoft about as far as I can throw them. Besides, tough buys cry often, do backups, regularly tests restore and NEVER trusts anyone with their data.

According to the Microsoft Trust Center: “Customer data may be replicated within a selected geographic area for enhanced data durability in case of a major data center disaster, and in some cases, will not be replicated outside it.”

Outlook doesn’t backup emails older than 30 days

Ransomware Hackers

You can’t afford to be without your data

These are the reason you should have backup
