Hi
I'm somewhat confused when it comes to Google Vault. May I use it as a backup to Google Apps? I have a customer that needs a backup to Google Apps but besides email archiving and searching can this tool be used as backup.

Yes, Google Apps Vault is an add-on for Google Apps that lets you retain, archive, search, and export your organization's email for your eDiscovery and compliance needs. Vault is entirely web-based, so there's no need to install or maintain any software.

No, Google Apps Vault is NOT a backup solution for Google Apps.  Google Apps Vault is an archive/ediscovery service that captures email and on-the-record Chat conversations.  

Vault is not designed to restore lost or corrupt data.  While you can restore messages, all restores end up in the inbox -- folder fidelity is not maintained.  It is designed to search and produce data in response to information requests and subpoenas.  

Backupify is the leading service for creating restore-able backups for Google Apps.  It captures email, contacts, calendar, drive, docs, and sites data.  (not just email and chat)  It is also designed to restore the data to its original location with 100% fidelity.
