Welcome to the SolarWinds Backup Forum on THWACK!

SolarWinds has decided to make the world of backup a better place.  Secure, reliable, fast backups are critical to your organization, but traditional server backup products often make things unnecessarily complex – and expensive.

Managing ever-changing backup storage requirements and complicated configurations, juggling tapes, and checking to be sure each and every backup is successful, can consume hours of your time every week. Now SolarWinds offers a better way.

SolarWinds Backup is a modern, cloud-first backup service that protects both physical and virtual servers. While it’s a new offering here, the product is already trusted by thousands of managed service providers, who have been using it to protect their customers for years.

Please share your feedback, questions and ideas here. We want to hear from you!

  • I can't speak for our product managers and the current roadmap, but since this product is a Cloud-First solution, I'm thinking the answer is probably no. Do you require an on-prem only solution? Is your company opposed to having the data offsite? I'm just curious as there are typically reasons for the request for an on-prem solution. In case you aren't aware we do offer an option to use a LocalSpeedVault  (think dumb local, NAS, usb storage), which allows for Local backups, in addition to the cloud backup. This would employ the 3-2-1 industry standard of having 3 Copies of your data:  prod, 1 local, 1 offsite. Keep in mind the data is also Encrypted with AES-256 Encryption if this is a concern for your company.
