    Backup solution for Google Apps

    Good Afternoon,

    We are starting to use Google Apps within our organisation.
    I was wondering what if any backup solution people are using to backup their Google Apps Data?

    Are Google able to retrieve data that has been accidentally deleted?

    I see there are various solutions available.

    Thanks

    Products ? Google Apps for Business | United Kingdom

    IIRC about $10 per member of staff per year - students are free.

    Hi, I'm currently having a look at Google Vault but have noticed it doesn't seem to be a backup solution as such. It's more for email retention policies etc. I believe it's worth having but am looking at something to potentially backup all apps data such as sites, drive, emails etc.

    The best one I have found is way to expensive for us even with edu discount.

    Is anyone backing up Google Apps data currently, or just emails?

    Cheers

    I know that this post is a few months old but did you ever get anywhere with backups for Google Apps?

    Management at my school are wanting to press ahead with putting some mission critical stuff on Google and I have told them we need to sort out some form of backup (student document collaboration is one thing but I think this needs much more thought).

    I've had quotes from the likes of Backupify and Spanning but they seem mighty expensive!

    Just thought I would try the free one but I get a an error about not being able to connect to the licence server. I will try from home later.

    At the moment we are only really utilising mail from Apps so therefore vault it is for us.

    At a later date I will reconsider options and who knows, vault might do it all by then.

    Regards

    This works from home but not from school. Can find no option for proxy settings etc.

    As you put in another post Vault does not appear to be a full email backup system and even if it was would you want to put all your eggs in one basket. I may be very OTT but the point as far as I can see is to protect your emails should the Google system get hacked or they lose your data, with vault also being a Google you may (although very very unlikely) lose everything.

    We started using Spanning Backup this school year, it backs up the emails every morning but does not keep a daily backup for those, just keeps that days backups. However, for Google Docs, Sites, and contacts it keeps a running daily backup so you can go in at anytime and for any day and restore anything you need. We have not needed it much yet, thankfully but I did have to restore the contacts for our Superintendent which worked perfectly. It is a paid solution but it really does give piece of mind and for only around $3,000, though we are a smaller school.
