Automated OneDrive for Business Backup

Cloud FastPath simplifies backing up hundreds or thousands of OneDrive for Business accounts.

Even though Office 365 has uptime as high as 99.98% and multi-region data redundancy, backing up data in OneDrive for Business is critical for these potential reason:

  • Staying compliant in heavily regulated industries
  • Making sure users always have access to their files, even with a OneDrive or ISP outage
  • Meeting regulations around data sovereignty
  • Following internal DR / multiple points of failure requirements
  • Avoid data gravity

Cloud FastPath creates automatic backups of your users’ OneDrive for Business accounts, file permissions, file metadata, file versions, and more. Create snapshots of intervals of your choosing and choose your on-premises or cloud native SaaS backup targets. Contact us to get started.


Easily send OneDrive for Business backups to on-premises and cloud systems via a central web-based dashboard.


EFast transfers and restores with API call optimization, WAN optimization, TCP tuning, and more.


All data moves directly from OneDrive for Business to the backup location. No data is saved or persisted in any way.


“Cloud FastPath is making it simple, effective and effortless on our part. Because of its high reliability, we’ll be able to make Cloud FastPath a key component in our risk mitigation and business continuity strategy.”

How it works / what you pay for:

  • The initial bulk transfer at Cloud FastPath’s per GB pricing (starts at $1/GB, decreases with volume), then $50 per month plus the additional transfer


What makes Cloud FastPath so Secure?

Cloud FastPath’s unique architecture is not only responsible for its speed but also how secure the solution is. All data, authentication credentials, and the management dashboard are encrypted end to end. Data is never persisted on any of Cloud FastPath’s servers. Cloud FastPath also gives the option of using points of presence that are maintained by the end user, further increasing control.

How Does Cloud FastPath Work?

The Cloud FastPath service automates the creation, operation and monitoring of data movement jobs from any supported source to any supported target. Data moves through Points of Presence (POPs), which can be either a simple virtual machine or standalone software agent deployed on or near the data source and target. The POPs contain adapters to a variety of data sources and targets. POPs create secure, network optimized gateways for point-to-point data movement. This architecture provides a distinct performance and security advantage over alternative approaches that require data to be staged or moved through an application between the source and target. The POPs are established temporarily or permanently, leveraging the existing public and private network capacity for fast, secure data movement. Cloud FastPath does not store or persist customer data, and all data between POPs is encrypted at the source before transmission. There is no coding, no consulting and no software to maintain. Simply connect file systems in minutes and the solution does the rest.


Simulation: Cloud FastPath’s simulation feature gives excellent insight into a dataset or group of files before it is transferred. You can filter based on aspects such as filesize, file type, owner, last modified date, and more.

Account, Group, Permission Mapping: When moving a fileserver into the cloud or between clouds it is critical that the user permission and group structure is maintained. Cloud FastPath approaches this problem with a easy to use and manage solution using CSV’s.

WAN Optimization: Cloud FastPath packages data at the source and sends it over the WAN in one stream, saving the most expensive API calls for the smallest distance.

Error Handling: Cloud FastPath is able to identify potential errors and enact auto retrying. Cloud FastPath knows which filetypes are not allowed by each system, and can handle many types of encoding or language.

Reporting: Cloud FastPath’s reporting features give assurance into what exactly was moved and any failed transfers. No more guessing.
