How does pricing work?

Pricing is per user. A user is a backed up Mailbox, Shared Mailbox, OneDrive Account or Shared OneDrive Account. Each of these requires a user license.

If a single user has both Mailbox and OneDrive backups, that counts as one billable user.

If one mailbox is used by multiple users, the fee is for the mailbox rather than for the number of people who have access to it.

Can I delete my account at any time?

You can take a single or multi-year subscription, with the option to renew or not once that time expires.

I would like to switch from trial to paid subscription. What should I do?

Follow the instructions here or click here to send a request.

What if I do not have a minimum of 10 users to back up?

You can start with as few users as you wish, as long as you get the minimum starting subscription of up to 10 users (mailboxes only) per year. For example, if you wish to start with 5 users, you can – however, you will be billed for 10.

Does Altaro charge extra when I perform a restore?

No. We charge one fixed all-inclusive price.

I don't need to back up OneDrive or SharePoint – can I simply back up Office 365 mailboxes?

Yes, the choice is yours. You can choose to back up mailboxes alone; or to back up mailboxes and files stored in OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries. Your choice will apply across all your organization. Different per user pricing applies for both options.

What if I start by backing up mailboxes only but later want to back up OneDrive and/or SharePoint as well?

No problem – you can do so by upgrading your subscription. Click here for more information.

What if I have less than 10 users to back up?

Our starter pack includes 10 users (mailboxes only) per year and enables you to start with as few users as you wish. For example, if you wish to start with 5 users, you can – however, you will be billed the minimum price for the starter pack.

Do I need to download or install anything to trial Altaro Office 365 Backup?

There's no installation necessary. Simply sign up and connect a Microsoft 365 account. Backups are taken automatically and saved to Altaro's Azure infrastructure.

How many users can be backed up?

Any number of users can be backed up. There's a minimum starting subscription of 10 users (mailboxes only) required per year.

How frequently are backups taken?

Backups of each user and SharePoint Document Library are automatically taken up to 4 times a day. This is seamless to the user and takes place automatically – no interaction is required on the user's part.

Can I back up Microsoft Teams with Altaro Office 365 Backup?

Microsoft Team's functionality includes the storing of files shared during user chats, meetings and team channel conversations, including Teams meeting recordings. These are stored in OneDrive accounts and SharePoint Site Document Libraries.

Altaro Office 365 Backup enables you to back up the OneDrive accounts of users who share files on MS Teams and the Teams SharePoint site. That way, you can protect and recover any files shared on Microsoft Teams.

'User Chat Messages', 'Team Conversation Posts' and any other MS Teams content are not backed up.

Click here for more information.

Can we use our own storage for the backups instead of Altaro's Azure infrastructure?

All Microsoft Office 365 backup storage is handled by Altaro and this cost is included in the price per user per month. Data is stored in MS Azure blob storage. It is not possible to store the data elsewhere.

If we delete the Office 365 user but want to keep the data, can we keep the backup?

Yes, there is an option to stop backups and retain the data. As long as the subscription is active, the content will be retained.

How long is backup data retained?

Indefinitely. Data is kept forever until a subscription is stopped.

Where is Altaro Office 365 Backup data hosted?

Altaro's Office 365 Backup data is stored at rest in Microsoft Azure West Europe (Netherlands). This location was selected after a due-diligence process that considered the physical security, certification, scalability, reliability, security and financial stability of the location.

What security mechanisms are in place to protect storing and transmission of data?

All backup data is protected by AES 256-bit encryption at rest.

All data transmissions with third-party APIs (e.g., Office 365) occur over TLS encryption.

All authentication user interaction (login, setting changes, subscription management and accessing backed up data) occurs over TLS encrypted channel.

Administrative access to Altaro's infrastructure is controlled through role-based access and centralised account management that provides improved monitoring of accounts and access.

Altaro's engineering teams proactively monitors and maintains the infrastructure 24/7.

Does Altaro Office 365 Backup back up OneDrive and SharePoint?

Yes, files stored within OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries can be backed up and stored securely.

Will you do backup for Gmail?

Currently there are no plans to support G Suite (Google's office suite, including mail service).

Whether you're a small or mid-market business or a large corporation, Altaro is provider of choice for backup solutions for Hyper-V, VMware and Office 365
