I've been looking into this also.

Synology SAN Arrays come with a free utility that synchs with Google drive
to grab backups of the data.  We are using that.  We aren't doing mail.
Vault handles for email investigations.

Teamdrive is managed centrally, so there's a way to do retention there if
you get people to migrate personal data to Teamdrives for institutional
data retention.

It's pricey to do backup through a service, and just in storage costs, and
the rare occasion that it's needed, has not proven to be worth a paid
