1 Replies, 239 Views

Microsoft recently announced their new online backup solution Microsoft 365 backup at Microsoft Inspire 2023ยน. It provides backup and recovery services for tenancy data associated with the use of OneDrive, SharePoint, and Exchange services. With Microsoft 365 Backup, you can back up all or select SharePoint sites, OneDrive accounts, and Exchange mailboxes in your tenant. You can also restore files, sites, and mailbox items in your tenant in parallel to a prior point-in-time in a granular manner or at massive scale. Additionally, you can search or filter content in your backups using key metadata such as item or site names, owners, or event types within specific restore point date ranges.

Together with this, there was an introduction to Microsoft 365 Archive which you can use to archive your very large mailboxes as well.
Here are some from the Inspire 2023
  • Select and archive or reactivate full sites in place without needing to migrate your data outside of Microsoft. File level archiving will be coming in the second half of 2024.
  • Maintain full admin-level search, eDiscovery, access policy, sensitivity label, DLP (Data Loss Prevention), retention policy, access control settings, and other security and compliance functionality.
  • Gain additional de-cluttering experiences and site lifecycle control capabilities.

Here is a video showing the features overview

Microsoft 365 Archive will be available in public preview in Q4 of this year. But you can sign up for a preview on the link below
