New Microsoft Teams Capabilities and What’s in it for You

January 21, 2021

By Bryant Bell – Senior Product Manager, Commvault

Microsoft Teams adoption has exploded, as more organizations look to bring borderless collaboration to their newly remote workforce. And as the number of monthly active users eclipses 115 million in October of 2020 (a startling 162% increase from April), Teams is quickly becoming a staple and cornerstone for employee communication and productivity.1  That’s why it’s more important than ever for businesses to consider simple, seamless means to protect valuable Teams data.

Here’s how the new Metallic Office 365 Backup enhancements, available in February 2021, help keep your valuable Teams data safe and recoverable:

Total Coverage

Microsoft Teams houses an abundance of data. From hundreds of users, to thousands of files, to millions of conversations, Teams is the primary interface for your employees. And it all needs protecting. With Metallic, you get broad-ranging coverage of your Teams data, including public and private teams, conversations, channels, tabs, posts, files, and more.

In-place Restore

Admins and IT professionals need granular search and recovery options, that help them manage their data with ease. With robust item-level search and advanced in-place restore options, Metallic enables users to find and recover Teams data, while preserving the overarching settings and layout. This means admins can rapidly restore their valuable Teams data, back to where it belongs – all while maintaining the overall site structure.

Intuitive Experience

Simplicity is key when it comes to data protection. And while Microsoft Teams leverages SharePoint and OneDrive as its backend file repository, Metallic provides complete oversight into your Teams data, all from one location. No cumbersome workflows, no disparate experiences – just one spot to locate and restore your Teams data (no matter where it lives) for effortless management, backup and restoration.

These enhancements further extend the capabilities of our award-winning Metallic SaaS Backup, for complete data protection across Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint Online, and Teams. Built on industry-leading Commvault technology, Metallic is proven to comprehensively safeguard your valuable Office 365 data from deletion, corruption, and ransomware attack.
