FEATURES
True Delta technology
With the ability to back up thousands of files per second, SolarWinds Backup includes a unique
technology that is as fast as it is simple. True Delta tracks byte-level changes between backups,
so you only back up (or restore) what has changed – not the entire file. This keeps backup
windows short and improves performance.
Direct-to-cloud backup
The SolarWinds Backup services were designed from the ground up for fast, efficient, remote
backup. You can skip the hassles of configuring local and remote backups, storage provisioning,
and storage capacity planning. Instead, your backups go directly to our global purpose-built
Just works. Once it is set
up, there is little intervention

Computers
private cloud, with backup windows measured typically in minutes, not hours. An 8TB file server
with more than 1.2 million files can complete its daily offsite backups in as little as four minutes,
thanks to our highly efficient True Delta data deduplication technology. With our cloud-first
backups, you don’t need to worry about onsite storage requirements.
End-to-end security
Encryption is built into our backup process. Backup data is encrypted at the source, stays
encrypted while in transit, and while at rest.
Single, unified management console
Protect physical, virtual, and cloud servers, including all major operating systems and hypervisors,
with a single product. One clean web-based dashboard shows you backup status at a glance,
and frees you to check systems, and even do restores, from any location – even from your
mobile device.
