Software-Only Version

Run MSP Backup & Recovery Using Your Own Data Center

We recommend that you take advantage of SolarWinds® MSP Backup & Recovery’s off-site cloud infrastructure. However, in some cases, you may want to store MSP Backup & Recovery data within your existing infrastructure. If this is the case, you can purchase the software-only version, allowing you to manage how, when, and where your data is stored and allowing you to execute your own seed loadings for both backup and recovery. The software-only version of MSP Backup & Recovery lets you use your own data center for the cloud-based storage component while still providing exceptionally fast restores via the Local Speed Vault, a redundant local copy that protects your data parallel to your cloud storage.
