Feature Cloud Virtual Disaster Recovery Solutions

Virtual Disaster Recovery to Hyper-V or VMware

If you want to help ensure business continuity, you must have a fast and proven disaster recovery solution in place. Since it can be expensive to maintain a secondary data center for disaster recovery, many MSPs choose virtual disaster recovery. In this scenario, backups from physical or virtual servers can be restored in a virtual environment in order to get back to business quickly.

Virtual Disaster Recovery


SolarWinds® Backup includes a virtual disaster recovery feature that allows you to create a working mirror of your Windows Server, and run it in a virtual environment for fast fail-over in case of disaster. This mirror can be kept up-to-date automatically by using the continuous restore feature. There is no extra charge for using either capability, and you can recover to VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, or to Azure.

Virtual disaster recovery can be set up for one specific server, or you can use the recovery console to recover data from multiple devices simultaneously.
