SolarWinds Backup overview

What is SolarWinds Backup?

SolarWinds Backup offers secure backups to the cloud, getting your backups offsite fast and helping you prepare for any type of recovery. Bare-metal server, workstation, file-level or document recovery is even faster with our optional LocalSpeedVault using your own hardware.

LocalSpeedVault automatically chooses the fastest recovery source, physical or virtual, local or in the cloud, ensuring minimum downtime in a disaster. And TrueDelta deduplication, compression and WAN optimization provides maximum backup efficiency.

Very solid, but expensive with some restoration hiccups

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, I have been happy with the product. The online backup option has decreased the amount of time spent working with clients to connect local backup drives. Support has been very helpful.

Pros
Overall, Solarwinds Backup just works with little intervention needed. I was skeptical of what was promised by the sales people, but after using it, I was very impressed. The online backup function helps to ensure backups always complete if local hardware is disconnected or failed.

Cons
I have run into some problems that have delayed restores, but in each instance, support has been able to help restore the device successfully. It would be nice if there was a local only option for backups. The price of the product is higher than other options.
