Backup management

SolarWinds N-central backup management provides data backup and restore capabilities. You can do this on physical and virtual servers from local disk or off premise cloud storage. With SolarWinds N-central backup management, with either Arcserve or SolarWinds Backup, you never have to do another full backup, greatly reducing network traffic, disk storage and load on production applications.
