IT management provider, ManageEngine, has announced that its Active Directory backup and restoration solution, RecoveryManager Plus, now allows for the backup and restoration of Exchange Online Mailboxes. The newest edition of RecoveryManager Plus enables users to store Exchange Online backups locally, as well as perform point-in-time restoration for any mailbox.
Exchange Online offers hold and archiving capabilities to manage compliance requirements, but does not offer traditional backup and recovery like its on-prem counterpart. RecoveryManager Plus combats this by enabling businesses to back up all mailboxes in their Office 365 tenant and securely store them on premises. In addition to this, it gives users the ability to do point-in-time restoration, which is not in the scope of Office 365.
Product manager at ManageEngine, Subramanyan Balakrishnan stated, “hosting data on the cloud doesn’t absolve organizations from the responsibility of backing up critical data that can impact business continuity, and emails hosted in Exchange Online are no different. RecoveryManager Plus eases enterprises’ email governance with its Exchange Online backup and point-in-time restoration capabilities.”
WIth restoration and backup support for Exchange Online, administrators can make use of RecoveryManager Plus to:
- Back up Exchange Online items like calendar entries, emails, journals, contacts, post, notes, and tasks.
- Search for any version of Exchange Online items and observe a live preview prior to restoring them.
- Perform point-in-time, item-level restorations in order to overcome the 30-day storage limit on deleted mailbox items.
- Take incremental backups to reduce storage space and improve backup duration.
- Schedule backups to happen during non-business hours to allow for minimal changes on mailboxes while the backup cycle occurs.
As well as RecoveryManager Plus’ current features that back up and restore Active Directory objects and Exchange Online, ManageEngine plans to further backup and restoration capabilities to the remaining major services in Office 365, specifically SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
