About Backup

N-able Backup is a cloud-first data protection service for servers, workstations, critical business documents, and Microsoft 365™, all managed from a centralized web-based dashboard. Backup was created for the cloud, so it is optimized for fast, efficient data transfers that minimize network bandwidth usage. Storage in our private cloud is included, with 17 data centers worldwide.

Of course, backup is really about recovery. N-able Backup offers a wide variety of recovery options from a single backup, including bare-metal restore, physical-to-virtual recovery, continuous recovery, and recovery to your own alternate location or to Azure®.

Free yourself from storage and appliance hassles. Simplify your backups and save with N-able Backup.

Key benefits of Backup

  • Recover full systems or files easily to minimize downtime and help protect against lost data.

  • Backup storage in our worldwide private cloud is included in the price - no need for a second vendor or separate service contract.

  • Provides a single web-based management console to manage server, workstation, document and Office 365 backups from anywhere.

  • Backup data is secured with AES 256-bit encryption in transit and at rest.

  • Fast backups transfer only changed bytes, letting you take more frequent backups for more granular recovery points.

    SolarWinds saved the day when disaster struck one of our clients, we were able to restore everything quickly and easily as if nothing had happened. Common backup and rescue media is easy to create. Customer support was easy to deal with. We have experienced no issues using SolarWinds Backup and recommend it to all of our clients.

    Pros

    SolarWinds Backup is easy and efficient to use. The web interface is easy to use. Just simply install on the devices and you are ready to go. You own your own data. There are no storage limits which is an asset.

    Cons

    There are a few limits on the scheduling features but we have managed to work around them.

    I recently made the "big step" to set up an external server for my work. Since then, smaller, non-business optimized cloud services didn't seem to scale up in pricing and protection, so i subscribed to SolarWinds Backup.
    It obviously has a ton of tools, that i might never need. But since my daily work routine is based on different projects with different customers, it's crucial to have a central storage point, that is easily accessible from everywhere and reliably saves all the steps of editing.

    Pros

    With several backup-steps SolarWinds Backup assures a complete protection from dataloss.
    Data is easily accessible from everywhere and backups are generated automatically and efficiently.
    The ability to access old versions of backups is especially helpful to never lose progress!

    Cons

    I didn't encounter any real problems with this software. The load of functions can be overwhelming, especially with all of the cryptic abbreviations.
    Honestly though, this is not a real con, but rather my own problem!

    I've used other backup software in the past and I can say this is the best one I've ever used, hands down.

    Pros

    Backups are reliable and easy to implement at any time.
    You can store multiple weeks or even months of backups at a time, and restoring data when needed is a snap!

    Cons

    Getting help from SolarWinds support can take a few days if they're busy; a very good knowledge base is available to all users and can usually resolve most issues, but speaking to an actual engineer for difficult troubleshooting can be difficult to get started.
