Why use cloud backup?

Using cloud backups is cheaper than maintaining an on-premises backup system. Paying just a subscription fee, there is no need to purchase or maintain hardware and software, nor worry about getting approval for a large upfront purchase.

Why backup Microsoft Office 365?

Contrary to popular belief, whilst Microsoft provides replication of data (between different data centres and your computers) they do not take responsibility for data backups. Therefore, if the data becomes corrupted or deleted, these changes are replicated. In fact, in the Microsoft Service Agreement we read:
“We strongly advise you to make regular back-up copies of Your Content. Microsoft can’t be held responsible for Your Content or the material others upload, store or share using our Services.”

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud takes care of these backups, helping to protect against potential data loss or ransomware attacks, which is achieved using data centres not shared with Microsoft.

Sage have a similar ‘cloud access’ feature to accounting and payroll packages. However they too state on their implementation page: “Just so you know Remote Data Access is not a backup service. You need to continue to take regular backups of your data”.
The consensus across cloud based services is therefore: they are not a replacement for backups, such as those carried out by Acronis

Why use VMit for Acronis?

Regardless of backup solution, it is important to regularly verify and ensure your backup infrastructure is working correctly. Using Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, VMit provides a managed cloud backup solution with regular monitoring of backups by our team of experienced technicians.
