I am looking for a backup solution for my customers who are have Google Apps or Office 365 accounts.

 

I have looked at StorageCraft, Veeam, Spanning, Acronis, Backupify .. but have so far rejected all of them for one or more of the following reasons:

 

  • don't support two-factor authentication on the account
  • don't support small businesses due to licensing model eg minimum 5 licenses
  • cloud only backup .. to back up cloud data a local copy is surely preferable
  • shared mail accounts in O365 not supported

 

 

I personally use Cloudpull software from Golden Hill but it is unfortunately G-Suite only and only for OS X, but it works well and is a one time license so very cost effective.

 

 

 

Does anyone have a good product to recommend?

What has been the limitation that you have found with Veeam?





Do whatever you want to do man.

Are you an MS Partner?  SkyKick offer a very good and inexpensive backup service.  https://www.skykick.com/

 

EDIT: Sorry, that's for Office 365 only not G Suite.

We don't bother backing up Exchange Online, we just make sure the behind the scenes journaling and archiving is enabled.  Less for us to have to worry about.

Bit hard to find out details of this one, but it looks to me to be a cloud storage option. Cloud backup may have some efficiency benefits, but it is still a leap of faith and may not be as reliable as a local backup.
