Overall Satisfaction with Vembu BDR Suite

Ease of use, implementation, and support.
We use Vembu Backup for all our shared and dedicated hosting servers across our datacenters for both on-site and off-site backup, and the restore of system code and respective databases on a weekly full and daily incremental bases.
  • Vembu Backup is an easy to configure and setup service.
  • Vembu Backup has powerful reporting functionality and alerting capability.
  • Vembu Backup benefits from a smart GUI to set up and manage backups and restores from or across systems.
  • In my opinion, there is only one area to improve Vembu Backup and that's the license manager. A good metaphor would be, you can't see the forest through the trees.
  • Well, in my opinion, Vembu Backup should be considerd an insurance policy. So if a fire never occurs was it a waste of insurance fee? Simple answer, no! Because you make the backup as a just in case, in that perspective, the ROI is instant when the unfortunate happens.
Vembu Backup was already configured and running when I joined the company so as it was working according to my expectations, it was an easy decision to extend the use of it.
As explained previously, we have a mixed environment and therefore Vembu Backup is working fine in both physical and virtual.
Since we have the luxury of enough on and off-site storage we seldom use this feature and to improve speed and lower potential overhead of compression. By default, it's set to none or low. Therefore, I don't have enough experience to comment on the performance and use of this feature.
We have used Vembu Backup for years now in a multi-server cross datacenter with an off-site unattended backup flawlessly.
