OneDrive backup: Protect your files with a cloud solution

June 18, 2020 W. Curtis Preston, Technical Evangelist

Office 365 is an excellent tool for collaboration, and Microsoft OneDrive is great for file syncing and sharing. However, when it comes to actually backing up your Office 365 files, there are some notable limitations. There is an assumption amongst Microsoft customers that their Office 365 data is backed up and protected by the vendor. Perhaps, because the customers’ data is hosted in the Microsoft cloud, they feel that their assumption is justified. Join Druva Chief Technical Evangelist W. Curtis Preston and Director of Product Management Vasu Subbiah as they discuss why Microsoft OneDrive, while a great sync-and-share product, is not a backup solution for several reasons. In addition, listen to their experiences with Microsoft Office 365 backup and why a third-party data protection solution like Druva, is critical for your Office 365 workloads.
