Recoverability Testing with SolarWinds Backup

One of the open secrets of IT is, while most organizations back up their data, very few actually test to determine if those backups work. This consists of two parts: backup verification and restore verification. Of the two, backup verification is easier, and restore verification is more neglected. Verification involves going through the recovery steps and ensuring a file, folder, or entire server can be returned to full operational status. Because it can be time- and resource-intensive, recoverability testing is often the first thing abandoned when things go from busy to overwhelming.

However, with the use of a modern, cloud-first backup product, virtualization technology, and this step-by-step guide, you can create and test a backup so you know it’s there when you need it.
