Here is an insight into Vembu BDR Essentials and how small & medium businesses can benefit the most out of Vembu BDR Essentials for their Backup & Disaster Recovery needs.

Vembu BDR Essentials is the most discussed topic in all our exclusive Vembu roadshows that are currently happening across different cities in the USA and all the VMUG Events that we attend. Those who have an understanding about it, are questioning about the possibility to offer the package at minimal pricing.

Let’s begin with a brief look into our flagship product:

“Vembu BDR Suite – A comprehensive data protection solution that’s a bundle of the most sought after features put together to work for businesses of all sizes and types“

We take pride in being the only vendor who caters to SMB’s business needs with an efficient package at easily affordable pricing. Ease of deployment, Centralized monitoring, 24*7 customer support, and multiple editions are the most preferred options by customers when asked for feedback after using Vembu BDR Suite.

There are businesses who run with a tight-knit budget due to which they cannot spare for BDR solution but are concerned about protecting their business-critical data. With their understanding about implementing a Backup & DR solution, they are always on the look-out for an effective free edition software. Vembu BDR Suite – Free edition caters to those users who value their data but are not in a position to shell out money. Ever-increasing downloads of Vembu BDR Suite is a proof for the efficiency of our product.

When we met IT pros from different sectors we identified a new category of users those who required more features other than those offered in the free edition but couldn’t stretch more in terms of pricing. So, here is a division of businesses who have a combination of requirements, all within a budget.

Vembu BDR Essentials was launched to fill this gap.

“It is an exclusive Backup and Disaster Recovery package for small businesses to protect their virtual environment (VMware/Hyper-V)”

Originally this package was launched to suit businesses having backup requirements up to 6 CPU sockets or 50 VMs.

We did a survey to measure the effectiveness of Vembu BDR Essentials and the responses from the survey led us to an understanding of the immense scope for growth in small businesses.

This survey covered topics ranging from the most crucial awareness regarding Data security to the recently changing trends about Data management. It was definitely a surprising moment when we discovered:

“95% of the user community are completely aware of the prominence of GDPR law”

We, at Vembu, are always & in all ways looking towards assuring customers their rights. Vembu being in business for 15+ years has worked extensively on being compliant with local laws of various countries. One of the most important facts about security compliances are the stringent measures to be followed by organizations to protect business-critical data. So, irrespective of the business size, we take the highest of the efforts to make sure your data privacy is maintained.

Also, this survey helped us to align our judgement on how users perceive Data Management:

Data Management is nothing but an addition of data backup, security, analytics, data mobility and automation bundled together into a single product.

“When the users do not require too many additional dimensions to a product, but making them believe they need those aspects too is a breach of their trust on a particular vendor. When more aspects are included in a product, a user who may not need those is, in reality, being made to pay for features that his business doesn’t need”

Via this survey, we could summarize that:

  • Above 90% of businesses only need a simple backup & disaster recovery solution – nothing more, nothing less
  • Over 40% of the respondents stated that Affordability is a major factor that influences their purchase decisions
  • 65% of respondents stated that complexity in usage makes them rethink their renewal decisions
  • 70% of people stated that 24*7 support is a must factor to make their decision
  • 85% of the responses preferred a comprehensive solution over buying multiple solutions for different environments

All these surveys are adding values to our authentic idea of originally why a backup and disaster recovery solution is needed.

Final Thoughts:

When a business grows so does their data by leaps & bounds. So, we wanted to empower small businesses further with their requirements & were amazed by the response received. This led us towards extending the package limit, now it is extended to 10 CPU sockets/100 VMs.

We never compromise on our product’s features, comprehensiveness & stability rather worked more and brought out a separate package exclusively for small businesses – so much for so less.
