Feature Bare-Metal Backup Software

Restore to Bare Metal in Minutes

Disasters come in two types: small, everyday issues where the operating system is running but a few files or folders need to be restored, and other times when hardware failure or damage, malware, or natural disasters call for recovery of your entire device. SolarWinds Backup is designed to handle either scenario quickly and efficiently.

Whether you need to perform true bare-metal recovery to new hardware, or to restore a full system to a virtual machine, you need to make it happen quickly so you can get systems up and running as fast as possible.

SolarWinds® Backup is designed to make bare-metal recovery smooth and painless—requiring little more than a bootable USB drive to get your customers back to business.

Bare Metal Recovery


SolarWinds Backup offers:

  • Bare-metal-ready protection: The system lets you run regular backups of boot volumes, system states, applications, and system data to help ensure you’re ready for almost any disaster.
  • Rapid bare-metal recovery: SolarWinds lets you select the fastest recovery source from a LocalSpeedVault or SolarWinds cloud storage.
  • Simple bare-metal recovery: Perform bare-metal restores of the operating system, applications, and data in a single step using a bootable USB drive.
  • Complete physical restores: Even when you have only a partially functioning system, SolarWinds Backup is designed to help with bare-metal restores of your systems to a state where the OS, applications, and data all function correctly.
  • Windows 10 Bare Metal Backup Compatibility: SolarWinds Backup supports Windows 7 and higher, as well as Windows Server 2008/2012 R2.
  • Physical-to-virtual recovery: If your physical servers are unavailable you can recover the server as a VMware or Hyper-V virtual machine, either to your own alternate location or to a Hyper-V instance in the Azure cloud.
