Overall Satisfaction with Vembu BDR Suite

It's easy to use and setup. Some things need some more configuration options. Like the ability to change the BDR server address easier than what is in their KB articles, but it's simple to configure and it works so that's the big thing for me!
I have been using other Backup Solutions but they really like their prices so I was looking for a different solution and I found it with Vembu. It fits my business model, my business needs, the backup works and can be exported out in a variety of forms and can perform bare metal restores. It fits my needs, it's easy to set up and the pricing is significantly cheaper than the "big guys". Look into it, I think you'll really appreciate and like it.
  • Backup
  • Restore
  • Alert
  • Export to the major VM file systems
  • Bare metal restores
  • Changing to a different server name or IP address is a bit cumbersome but works.
  • It's significantly cheaper than any other product I've tried.
  • It has helped save my company money and my small business clients money.
The price is great. The features and the options of BMR recovery and export to ESX and HyperV are great. Lots of options for backups.
We benefited when we lost a server and had to restore a client's server. It has worked as advertised. Sold me!
I have benefited from both. For my cloud Vembu server for space savings and the encryption is on by default and you can change it to whatever you want. It works.
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.
It's suited for any backup needs. It's highly scalable. It has a variety of backup methods—Image, VM, and Network backups. Can be used for desktops and servers. It's built for any size business really.
