I have exciting news! Today Acronis released a new update for Acronis Backup 12 (Update 3), which brings support for Microsoft Office 365 and VMware vSphere 6.5.

Backup for Microsoft Office 365

As you know, Microsoft Office 365 is extremely popular with small companies, as it offers cloud email, on-premise software, and many other business tools. Yet, many companies often oversee one important aspect – they still need to protect their data.

Did you know that Office 365 service does not include backup out of the box? While it may have some basic protection like snapshots or undelete features, it does not create proper backups that can be easily restored if you need it.

1. Install Acronis Backup 12 Office 365 Agent to any of your Windows systems, i.e. on a physical server, virtual machine, or in a cloud VM/instance:
