SolarWinds – Software Only Version

Run SolarWinds Backup Using Your Own Data Center

We recommend that you take advantage of SolarWinds® Backup’s off-site cloud infrastructure. However, in some cases, you may want to store SolarWinds Backup data within your existing infrastructure. If this is the case, you can purchase the software-only version, allowing you to manage how, when, and where your data is stored and allowing you to execute your own seed loadings for both backup and recovery. The software-only version of SolarWinds Backup lets you use your own data center for the cloud-based storage component while still providing exceptionally fast restores via the Local Speed Vault, a redundant local copy that protects your data parallel to your cloud storage.


True Delta: Have faster backup windows with compression and deep deduplication.
Continuous recovery: Recover your systems at any time with a standby virtual server that stays continuously up to date.
Virtual disaster recovery: Should the need arise, you can restore directly to a virtual machine.
Bare metal recovery: Quickly and easily restore to fresh hardware.
Professional services automation (PSA) integration: Connect SolarWinds Backup with your PSA software.
