Is it possible to synchronize or backup an Office 365 SharePoint site?

The company I work for want to use Microsofts "cloud" SharePoint offering, but they wont go ahead if they can't back it up on premis or somewhere else another of our online servers.

As of now, there is no out of the box facility to backup an entire SharePoint site and restore it to another farm as you do for on premise SharePoint applications.

The only option currently available would be to use the "Save site as template" option for sites, which would take a backup of max 50 MB. Visit this blog for more details.

You can check out for third party solutions, which comes with a pricing. One among them is MetaVis SavePoint which might be what you are looking for.

Good Luck .
