One of the benefits of moving your organization’s collaboration content to Office 365 is its natural ability to store and create backups of that content. While SharePoint or other collaboration platform administrators were once tasked with creating workflows to store all that content on-premises or even in the cloud, Office 365 just does it. Yet, even Office 365 has its limits. While it will store backups, it only makes a backup every 12 hours and it only stores backups for 14 days. After 14 days, backups are discarded.

Microsoft verfügt seit 2013 - seit es Office 365 gibt - über ein sogenanntes "FastTrack"-Team. Das Team hat sich von der reinen Unterstützung bei der Bereitstellung von Office 365 zum praktischen Einsatzassistenten entwickelt, ausgerichtet, was die Kundezufriedenheit um 64 % gesteigert und die für den Umzug auf Office 365 benötigte Zeit um 33 % gesenkt hat. Die Dienste des Teams beinhalteten i. d. R. den Einsatz von Exchange, OneDrive for Business und Skype. Seit September 2016 verfügt FastTrack außerdem über einen begrenztes Angebot, SharePoint 2013 für Office 365 bereitzustellen.

If you didn't know, Microsoft has had a FastTrack team since 2013 when Office 365 came into existence. This team has grown from being dedicated to deployment guidance and readiness, to hands-on remote deployment assistance in 2014, increasing customer satisfaction by 64% and reducing the onboarding time into Office 365 by 33%. The services typically covered the Exchange, OneDrive for Business and Skype deployment migrations, but as of September 2016 FastTrack has a limited time offer to provide SharePoint 2013 to Office 365.



Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) are essential cornerstones of any disaster recovery (DR) or backup plan. In fact, attempts to formulate a DR/Backup plan without RPO & RTO are little more than best-guesses. So what are these concepts and why are they important?

As a Product Manager, I often have the opportunity to talk to our customers and prospects about their SharePoint deployments.  Many of these conversations have been about the pros and cons of governance policies when using SharePoint Groups or Active Directory groups.

As if you weren’t aware, your SharePoint environment could very well be a gigantic jumble of content. More than half of SharePoint deployments now measure well over 1 TB of content. Every year, this content grows around 65 percent.

The long-awaited, much-anticipated SharePoint 2013 has finally arrived. At this point, many organizations are asking themselves whether they should upgrade to SharePoint 2013.
