The primary alternative to Vembu would be Veeam. This would be my second choice in a close race. If I remember correctly, Veeam only supported virtualized environments until just after my decision to go with Vembu. We had also previously tried Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager, which while it did work was overkill for our environment, and I think EOL now.

We tried to use Altaro first of all but found it to be very big, take up a lot of resources and found the features we needed hard to use. When we compared Vembu we just found everything was so much easier and as it was also free this ticked nearly all of our boxes and the decision was made.

The admin management is better, we already have a relationship with Vembu and it gives us more flexibility.

Vembu is cheaper and less complicated, with lower HW requirements which means it more apt for my customers who are mainly small and medium business.

I used to recommend Aconis, but it gets super-expensive when you get to the server and hypervisor level stuff, and I'm finding myself to not like the latest user interface and options. I also used BackupAssist, which is actually a great product for Windows Servers, but Vembu just smokes it in performance, so if you have multiple servers and workstations backing up to one location it makes it easier. You have more time and you don't have to troubleshoot Windows Server Backup/VSS components.

I have used almost all Vembu products—BDR, VMbackup, Network Backup, Image Backup, and OffsiteDR. I haven't used the 360 for easy management of all the BDR servers but I'll probably eventually use it as I build out my VembuBDR servers.

If you are looking for an enterprise capable backup suite that quickly does the job without hassles then you will quickly look past the freebee software like Microsoft NT Backup or the overly complex of the like such as Acronis.

The reason for choosing Vembu was that the free version's limits were very reasonable, the installation could be performed on a Linux based operating system, and management could be done using a web UI.

  • Easy to deploy.
  • User-friendly console.
  • Value for money. Veeam is a good backup solution but it's very complicated and expensive. On other the hand, Altaro was not so reliable as it crashed the storage many times. It lacks a few important features.

Vembu has been the only product that allowed us to backup mobile users (laptops) and the price [was a factor].

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.
