The author provides the steps to download the client installer for Vembu ImageBackup, a product exclusively for Physical environments. Brandon comments that the entire installation process is easy and intuitive and proceeds with the configuration process where the first step involves the volumes to be selected, we wish to include in the backup job. The subsequent step involves the configuration of scheduling options and then the retention settings are set, later which the backup job is run. Post Backup, there are various options to recover and mount in the console. The backed up data can be stored in various formats like VHD, VMDK, VHDX, VMDK-flat as well as RAW format.
