Azure support

We would like to see Azure support reintegrated into Backup & Recovery

 

They may have been rarely used before but more and more people now are moving to the cloud and we have customers looking to host all their systems and servers on the cloud. We would like to continue using Backup & Recovery to protect our customers and we need it to support Azure.

Full support for Backup and Restore to KVM Hypervisor Targets

Raised on behalf of Fancit B.V. SolarWinds Backup doesn't currently support restoring directly to a KVM Hypervisor target; users must instead restore the device to a VHDX or VMDK via Virtual Disaster Recovery. In some cases (such as the rental of Virtual Private Servers), direct access may also not be available to the KVM Hypervisor platform; it would be of great help if Backup was still able to support restoration ...more »

Restore anything in the cloud even when the device is offline

I want to be able to grab files from any system backed up to the cloud and be able to move them to any other system. Please make this a possibility. This should be a basic thing for simple file backup and recovery. If you could make this a thing for hyper-v and xenservers, that would be cool too.

Master Encrpytion Key for account owner

If you forget your encryption key (or if a malicious employee decides to go off the rails) you're customers backups are worthless.

 

Allow the MSP business owner a master restore password that only they would know that could override all other backup passwords.

 

Give us the option to have one global password for all, or one for each client. (I personally would prefer one global for all)
