We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The ability to restore in a catastrophic event is priceless, since every company must use a backup solution of some sort.We are able to take backups on a regular interval and restore data/VMs as we choose making the process work as advertised.The ability to create a replica of all virtual machines is a great feature.We have been able to set up a failover site that has replicas of our critical VMs.You can have it setup and running within a few minutes.

Quick backup and restore; very simple and understandable interface.Their technical support is very good to work with, as they are able to propose alternate solutions to problems that work well for us.Valuable features include Snapshots and the constant backup for SQL, application services, and Active Directory.I back up one particular server with close to 1.2 TB, and the way the software compresses it is close to 600 or 700 TB. Vembu compresses it to close to 450 gigabytes, that's gigabytes. So that’s really amazing, the way in which the backup compression happens.The automated backup of multiple virtual machines. We can back up two hypervisors, one is Microsoft Hyper-V and the other one is VMware Hypervisor.I enjoy the ease of the UI and how simple it is to use compared to other products.

Cons
The upgrade process is a bit dated and could use some changes.UI could use some upgrades. The UI is basic, but functional.​It would be great if the product could be expanded to support other virtual technologies.

I have not been impressed by the data compression of the backup images. They seem to take up nearly as much space on the backup drive as they do on the server.I suggest that the dump of the database have the option to either be backed up to Vembu Cloud or be backed up to all backup sites and not only to default storage.The process is a bit cumbersome when you remove an agent, delete that job, and add the agent to the same server. Even though the agent is already installed in that server, the system does not recognize it. We have to uninstall the current agent, restart the server, install the push agent - a new agent - and then restart the server. I think they should try to avoid that.It is very easy, unless you know exactly what you're doing, to corrupt the virtual machines and they get locked up. Just brief detail: When you are creating a system, if you don't have absolutely every other little background processes in place, it creates Snapshots of the virtual machines. Once it does that, it then won't be able to have a backup. From that point on you have to destroy the virtual machine, which is completely counterproductive on a large system. There is a fundamental flaw in the setup that can be very dangerous, potentially.It would be good to have a volume licensing discount. We're a managed IT service provider, so we're backing up not just our own systems but all our clients'. In that regard, as we grow, we're putting business through Vembu. There is not any specific partner incentive at all. So that would be nice to see.They had a good product and tried to change things by going to a different product. They should have tried to stay with a product that is a proven solution and successful.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The pricing structure is in line with other solutions. However, the option to replicate offsite to a unit at another office or at home is a big cost benefit. Instead of paying monthly for cloud storage, you replicate offsite for free.We were able to take advantage of a promotional pricing campaign.It is very cost efficient, effective. I’d say it's one-third the cost of Veritas when compared to the server backups. I even tried image backups on Acronis, but Acronis is very expensive. So these are some of the key reasons why I opted for it.The product's pricing is a good value. Vembu is cost-effective versus using VMware Essentials. Regarding licensing, make sure you find the right workstation or server that you're going to install it on, and know the number of sockets it has, since the price depends on that.
