Since the "Gannondorf" release late last year, we've been steadily working to improve Servosity Safe by increasing the performance and usability of Servosity One, as well as building the foundations for a done-with-you version of Servosity Safe. There have been a number of minor revisions which have rolled out in the past few months, which you may or may not have noticed, but today I'm happy to announce some major changes that are available now!
Microsoft 365 Backup has been rebuilt
Microsoft 365 Backup for Servosity 8 has been available for a few years now, though that may be a surprise to some of you. We built it to run on our existing Servosity 8 backup servers, and it has gotten the job done for a few years now. However, when we decided to restart development from the ground up with Servosity One, it was the perfect opportunity to make Microsoft 365 backup the right way from the very beginning.
Here's some of the great new features you'll enjoy with Microsoft 365 backup:
- Support for Microsoft Teams (we're so excited about this one, it had to be bold)
- Unlimited storage and retention
- Much faster backups
- More stable backup jobs with better error reporting
- No more micro-managing the number of mailboxes
- New mailboxes are automatically added to the backup job
- Removed or unlicensed mailboxes are automatically archived, forever
- Restore to M365, send it to your cloud storage, or download files directly through your browser
You can create new M365 backups starting today. One thing to note is that all mailboxes will be backed up, without an option to exclude any of them. We made this decision to make it as hard as possible to accidentally miss anything in your organization. If you have any concerns about this, please reach out to our team at email@example.com and we'll be happy to talk with you about it. We'll be reaching out to each of our partners with an existing Office 365 backup account to discuss migration plans, but you can also read the announcement here: End of Life Announcement for Servosity Office 365 Classic Backup Accounts
Google Workspace Backups
Another advantage of starting from scratch was that our new Google Workspace Backup will include all the same new features as the upgraded Microsoft 365 backup! This means that you'll be able to protect your Google Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Drive, and of course, Email. Google Workspace Backup will be offered at the same price per mailbox as Microsoft 365 backup, and will also include unlimited storage and retention, and will automatically protect all users in your workgroup. If you have a client with a Google Workspace, you can simply create a Google Workspace backup account in our control panel. As always, if you have any questions about these new features, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!
