4 ways to back up Microsoft 365

How can you ensure your Microsoft 365 data is protected and you can recover it if something happens—whether an accidental deletion, full-scale cyberattack, or something else unexpected?

We were never able to back up one of our native Windows file servers in under 12 hours. With Cohesity, that data is now replicated and moved to our remote site within three hours.”

Anana Customer Story Color Logo

We experienced a failure of one of our SANs, leading to the loss of an important database server. Within a very short space of time, we stood up a virtual machine clone of the failed (physical) server with the database attached, all running on the Cohesity platform, with no requirement for running a restore! We were subsequently able to conduct a full planned migration of that database to a new SAN cluster in a safe and controlled manner. Without Cohesity the restoration of that database to a working state would have taken a significantly longer period, which proved our decision to use Cohesity in one incident.

Cohesity saves a lot of time for our engineers because it automates tasks we used to do manually, like replication and archiving. If any virtual machine or SQL Server is encrypted in an attack, we can instantly restore a snapshot to any point in time.”

It will be a tremendous help to have one platform that handles backups for physical servers and database servers, and also manages snapshots for other NAS and SAN devices. And then it also can be our object store directly to customers.

Commonly asked Windows Server backup and recovery questions

Windows backup and recovery is the process of protecting and securing data from Microsoft Windows servers and applications like Exchange, SQL, Active Directory, OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams, Hyper-V, Microsoft 365, and more—so you can recover from outages or leverage backups for development, testing, or analytics.

A Windows backup and recovery solution will protect users’ data and a broad range of enterprise applications, and enable recovery anywhere, anytime. A good Windows backup and recovery solution should help meet your organization’s data retention, data privacy, and business requirements cost-effectively while making it quick and easy to access backups for recovery and secondary purposes.

Microsoft Windows is the most popular Operating System found in enterprise organizations for both user desktops and server environments. Enterprise organizations deploy and manage Windows systems across many locations to support their most critical business applications and functions, like file shares, home directories, department shares, emails, databases, collaboration tools, virtual machines, and more. This makes choosing the right Windows backup and recovery solution critical. The goal is to protect data from data loss and long-term outages, and avoid the often significant financial and productivity costs that can result.

A cost-effective and reliable backup and recovery solution for Windows is even more important because of the many data challenges enterprises face, such as:

  • Data growth: Growing volumes of data increase the complexity and cost of backup and recovery for Windows Servers and applications.
  • Regulatory changes: Ever-changing compliance mandates like HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI make protectdion of Windows systems considerably more complex.
  • Increasing costs: The more data organizations have, the more the business has to pay for bandwidth, storage, and data management.
  • Slow backups and restores: As data grows, backups and restores take longer to complete, and performance can degrade significantly.
  • More complex environments: Enterprise businesses store and access data across many locations, including on-prem, edge, and cloud—all of which can complicate the management, security, and protection of data across these environments.
