Overall Satisfaction with Vembu BDR Suite

Overall, it is a stable, reliable backup solution.
It is used by the IT department to back up all of our server VMs. It addresses the business problems of disaster recovery and continuity.
  • User-friendly web UI
  • Ease of setting up a backup VM
  • Responsive customer service
  • Cryptic error messages that can be hard to troubleshoot
  • Licensing requirements can be difficult to understand
  • More information on what is fixed in releases would be helpful
  • 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 less than our previous solution, thus the money can be invested in other tools/software procurement.
Vembu BDR Suite is a single backup and recovery tool with all the basic features covered. I really liked the fast image backups and restoration time. Image backups can be opened without restoring and mounting as a disk. That was really a helpful feature that saves time in restoring the right back up.
We have been using it for our VMware on-premises environment and it is
functioning pretty good and does its job. We do not currently license the physical bare-metal option.
We have not used this feature.
  • Good Features
  • Better Pricing
  • Simple Interface
  • Easy Installation and Configuration
The Vembu BDR suite solution is simple and robust and is fairly easy to install and administer backups for a VMWare environment.
An earlier backup product had features to keep a backup on local disk but this feature is missing in the Vembu BDR Suite.
