Project review: CloudCover 365

A Microsoft Office 365 backup solution powered by Veeam, virtualDCS and Zadara.

The challenge:

Veeam’s world-leading Disaster Recovery software for Microsoft 365 is already protecting millions of organisations worldwide, but it doesn’t lend itself to a ‘hands-off’, multi-tenanted approach.

We were challenged by the Cloud Computing pioneers at virtualDCS, to develop an additional layer of functionality to Veeam’s existing software and to develop the ability for IT resellers to manage their own customers through a single-pane-of-glass interface. Together, we created the CloudCover 365 portal.  

To make the project a success, the portal had to pull together technologies from three different parties: Veeam, virtualDCS and Zadara Object Storage.

The technologies:

C# .net & .net Core

Xero API

MS Graph API

S3 Object Storage

Go-Cardless API

MS PowerShell

CSS & Bootstrap

React Front End

MS SQL Server

Veeam API

Together, we created the CloudCover 365 portal offering:

  • Reseller white labelling functions (logos, domains and more).
  • Automated signup and Microsoft 365 Configuration
  • Automated Microsoft 365 Configuration updates
  • Trial process tool for customers with automated Email reminders.
  • Single-pane-of-glass management features for all customers.
  • CloudCover 365 portal
    • Automated customer billing and management via Xero.

    • Backup Management within the portal at the click of a button.

    • The ability to enable end-user backup and recovery with self Service Restores.

    • Automated email Reporting

    • Direct Debit signup facilities and integration with popular accountancy APIs.
