Applications and Components

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 solution includes two applications: Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is responsible for data backup to an offline repository and for retrieving data selected for restore. It comprises the following components:

  1. A Windows service named Veeam.Archiver.Service (display name Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 Service) – runs on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 management server. It is intended to manage backup proxies and control global configuration settings. This Windows service is started automatically and runs permanently in background.
  2. A Windows service named Veeam.Archiver.Proxy (display name Veeam Backup Proxy for Microsoft Office 365 Service) – runs on the Windows machine(s) where backup proxies are deployed. Initially, it is deployed on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 server. It is started automatically after installation and runs permanently in the background.
  3. A UI component named Veeam.Archiver.Shell.
  4. A Windows service named Veeam.Archiver.RESTful.Service (display name Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office RestFul API Service) – deployed on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 server during the setup. This service is initially disabled and starts after a user configures the corresponding option in the UI. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 RESTful API is described in its reference documentation.

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange is responsible for items restore in the way preferred by the user (saving, export, sending, or restore). It can be installed together with Veeam Backup for Office 365, or on another machine. Its workflow at mail restore is described in https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/explorers/working_with_vex.html. This application, as well as Veeam.Archiver.Shell, RESTful API and PowerShell operate as the clients of the Veeam Backup for Office 365 management server.
