IBM Cloud Backup

Any time, all day, I would advocate the use of IBM Cloud Backup, as it has excellent storage space with structured security measures, and suitable business functionalities. Further, no big struggle as the app is online, hence, remotely accessible. The stability and the strength that the application has is another assurance that all information is in the safer hands, for all the authorized business users.

Vembu BDR Suite

Vembu [BDR Suite] adapts very well to virtual environments such as Vmware and Hyper-V, allowing you to easily manage backups and other tasks that are assigned, in addition to this it already has the integration for office 365 and G-suite which will allow integration practically complete with all the platforms most used by companies today. Although in the virtual part I have no complaints, in the physical environment there can be a lot of improvement in terms of centralized administration and management of endpoint backups.

  • In the cloud

Vembu BDR Suite

  • Bare metal system images. These are incredibly flexible, enabling you to do dissimilar hardware restores, local or online backups and restore to VHD
  • Full, differential and transaction log backups for SQL server, ensuring rapid backup and restore, with maximum storage efficiency.
  • Incremental backups for files, meaning only the changes which have been made to a file are backed up, dramatically reducing time to backup and increasing storage efficiency.

Cons

IBM Cloud Backup

  • The set prices for the product is a problem.
  • Secondly, IBM Cloud Backup customer help should be more speedy.
  • IBM Cloud Backup is so automated, and in case of a power failure, accessing some of this data can be challenging.
David Vlad | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vembu BDR Suite

  • Although its interface is simple, a web-only interface for a backup solution isn't recommended as the main interface.
  • Using PostgreSQL as the configuration DB Source is OK. But, the lack of options for the Database isn't OK. Especially on a Windows Environment, admins prefer using a centralized MS SQL Instance, and this is not possible with Vembu.
  • More work needed on SharePoint, Active Directory, and Exchange Restores. All three are critical workloads in almost any infrastructure.
  • Reporting can be greatly improved.

I think the product will remain useful for us and as the company keeps improving features it will continue to be relevant and useful.We don't like switching technology much and BDR solutions shouldn't be something that a company replaces every few years., that's why most likely we will keep using it.

Vembu is a great solution, but it still requires some fine-tuning. The user interface for Managed Service Providers could be more streamlined. Support logs need to provide clearer information about an issue whenever there's a failure. Backup agents should have the ability to automatically update when there's a new version and support should be on-shore during US business hours.

It often takes a very long time to get an issue fixed. the support folks seem committed to getting it fixed but they often seem to be trying different things and hoping something works. I did not get the sense that they had a clear idea what was wrong.

It wasn't difficult at all, it fact, it was mostly simple, implementation doesn't require much skills and knowledge, but the configuration part does require some skills to create the jobs and configure certain settings, overall, its an easy implementation, especially for experienced IT People

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Backup

Pricing and how easy it is to use. We use other IBM products in our office and it is nice to have everything on one network. The experience for users and managers is better, even new employees who can learn quickly. It also makes it more affordable for us.

Vembu BDR Suite

I tested Vembu against Veeam and for the price, Vembu was the better option. I also had a great support experience as I had to contact Vembu twice after mistakes I made. While using Veeam the software was not as intuitive and support responses were not as swift and accurate.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Backup

  • Data loss can be expensive, but IBM Cloud Backup has extra an encryption option, which helps us maintain the value of our information.
  • Besides, the amount of data that IBM Cloud Backup can store is almost limitless, making us deal with any form of content that benefits the company.
  • Finally, no data losses due to accidents, which is a great plus for a company.
David Vlad | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vembu BDR Suite

  • For organizations that use different tools for Backup and recovery, this could be the single tool for Storage and Backup Administrators to automate and work effectively.
  • Software cost is lesser thus the money can be invested for other tools/software procurement
  • I don't think there is any negative impact as of now
