Bare Metal Recovery

Restore to Bare Metal in Minutes

Sometimes, rebuilding a system is simply out of the question. When that’s the case, you need the ability to perform bare metal restores—and you need the ability to make them happen quickly so you can get systems up and running as fast as possible. SolarWinds® MSP Backup & Recovery makes this process as smooth and painless as it can be—requiring little more than a bootable USB drive. That makes bare metal backups and restores easier and faster than ever before.


  • Bare metal protection: Regular backups of boot volume, system state, applications, and system data to help ensure that you’re prepared for any disaster.
  • Rapid recovery: MSP Backup & Recovery uses a hybrid-cloud architecture, allowing it to select the fastest recovery source from both local and cloud-based backups.
  • Simple recovery: Perform a bare metal restore of the operating system, applications, and data in a single, seamless step using a bootable USB drive.
  • Complete physical restores: Even when you have only a partially functioning system, MSP Backup & Recovery can help to restore your systems to a state where the OS, applications, and data all function correctly.
  • Full Windows compatibility: MSP Backup & Recovery supports Windows clients from Vista onward as well as Server 2008/2012 R2.
  • Physical-to-virtual recovery: If your physical servers are unavailable, you can recover the server as a virtual machine.
