How can we improve Azure Backup?

Backup for O365

I Like to see Longtime protection in Azure Backup or System Center Data Protection Manager for Office 365 Exchange, Sharepoint services. Because today you have to buy a third party solution. There are a lot of Educational institutes around the world in the free edition of Office365 on the Campus Agreement, but backup, restore services of Office 365 is a must have. Think about backup and restore mailboxes, teamsites of Sharepoint etc. Best Regards, James

    My boss told me to do research on some Office 365 mailbox backup solutions, mainly CodeTwo (https://www.codetwo.com/backup-for-office-365/), Cloudally (https://www.cloudally.com/backup-sharepoint-online/), CloudBacko (https://www.cloudbacko.com/en/office-365-exchange-online-backup.jsp), Spanning (http://spanning.com/products/office365-back-up/) etc. They all seem okay, except their prices vary a lot. Anyone can share your experience in any of them? Which one is problem-free? Much appreciated :-D

    MS Appears to be pushing SkyKick as the option for backup to Azure storage. Not all together convinced of the solution.

    Absolutely, backup is not an optional service, and as it stands, so many Office 365 customers do not even know that they would need to enable a third-party tool for backup--most people assume it is backed up by Microsoft. As I've had to tell my clients many times, highly available services are not to be confused with backup--strong uptime does not protect you from every type of issue or loss.

    Dear Microsoft,

    This feautre is a must have, please take this value added service into consideration.
    It would dramatically improve the already high standard service that Microsoft is providing to her customers.
