Vembu BDR Suite Valuable Features

John Demattia
Director of IT at MTSI, Inc.
The dashboard is very easy to use, setting up the backup is very intuitive. Since that's our primary purpose in using it, it made it easy, when I was doing evaluations a year ago, to choose the product. If I want to back up to this past Friday, and reinstall the file server to that state, I can choose a point in time and issue the command to back up and I don't need to go in and restore the last full backup and then apply iteratively, sequentially, all the incrementals, as I've had to do in some other software in the past. It's nice that I can pick a point in time and tell it I want to go to that state and it's transparent to me. It happens in the background for me. It's very easy to use, very quick and efficient. From a backup standpoint, it has provided us the tools we need on a daily basis to know that it's working properly and with almost no manual maintenance work from us to verify it. It just comes to us. It's been very positive, helping us address that need efficiently. View full review »

The most valuable features for me are that I can back up the entire virtual machine, but when restoring I can restore at the file level. View full review »

The most important feature is that it performs disaster backups. That's the only reason we use it, and it's going well so far. It's the only feature we need. It has a lot of other features, but we're a pretty small company, only five people. The most important thing for us is that it's able to perform and restore a disaster backup. And that's working. We have Hyper-V servers and we back up the virtual machines on those servers with the Vembu software. View full review »

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. View full review »

Application Support Specialist at a manufacturing company with 51-200 employees
The agentless backups are the big selling point on this, as well as being able to send out across sites so that I can do a restore at either of our two locations. The compression is good. As far as the encryption is concerned, I'm glad that it's there for site to site. We don't necessarily need it just because of the way that we're connected, so it's not really a selling feature, one way or the other. View full review »

Director of IT at a healthcare company with 51-200 employees
The most important feature, in terms of the hypervisor, is the ability to restore a virtual machine in a matter of minutes. We can take the backup of a virtual machine and we can restore it to the actual Vembu Backup server as a temporary solution, in a matter of minutes. We can just spin up a VM in no time; different hardware, even different processors. It's pretty dynamic in that sense. The file restoration comes in a close second, but the biggest deal was to be able to restore virtual machines, very quickly and easily. View full review »

Gabor Virag
Systems Engineer at GVir Informationsmanagement
The network solution is the most important feature, because we have our own backup server and are doing file backups for our customers. The compression, encryption and deduplication features are important. If we can save space, it's okay. The encryption is also very important, because it is in our contracts. It is a must. We have to use it for our customers. View full review »

Managing Member at Offsite Data Protection Services
The only things that I use it for are file backup and SQL backup. I don't do much beyond that. It is pretty much straight file backups and restores. What I like about these features are the ease of installation and automatic scheduling. I do like the email feature where I am able to email the client and myself directly after each backup whether it's been successful, partially backed up, or failed. I am very pleased with the compression, especially with some of the larger SQL databases that need backup. The amount of compression is impressive. View full review »

The backup of VMware ESX is the most important to us. That's what we use. We use it to back up all of our private cloud, and it's backed up hourly. View full review »

IT Director at a marketing services firm with 201-500 employees
One thing I’m very much impressed by is the compression ratio. The rate at which it compresses the data during backup is really very good. In fact, I’d say it’s better than Symantec Backup Exec. I have Backup Exec, in my environment, and I have Veeam. Symantec is now Veritas, so I have played with all the backups, but the way in which this handles the compression is really one of the key features. It’s also very, very stable. I haven’t made any changes to it. I just installed and it’s working. I restored a couple of times, and everything seems to be fine. View full review »
Manager at a real estate/law firm with 1-10 employees
The most valuable feature is the ability, from a console, to manage the different computers to be backed up. In addition, I use the encryption regularly, and the deduplication as well, but not extensively. The deduplication is very handy. It reduces the size of the backups, which we can then upload to an online storage platform. That's one of the reasons I selected it. View full review »

* Snapshots * Constant backup for SQL, application services, and Active Directory * External disaster recovery * Small memory footprint when running It's also easy to use because of the graphical user interface.
