Some questions about vembu (enterprise) evaluating switching


I'm considering switching to vembu. We are an MSP and my required scenario is having the BDR software running on site at every customer. In addition we want to do offsite copies to our own datacentre. We want to do agentless backups of Hyper-V vms as well as image backups of physical windows servers, workstations and laptops. I have some questions about vembus capabilities:

  1. Is GFS possible without forced full backups? So can I have e.g. 10 yearly backups which are all still incremental?
  2. Is vembu using reverse incremental forever or incremental forever? If the latter how long does it take to recover the newest backup in a long chain?
  3. Is automated screenshot verification possible?
  4. Is a scripted/automated installation of the windows physical backup agents possible?
  5. Is there a centralized and multi tenant managment and monitoring console available?
  6. Is it possible to update the BDR suite as well as the agents automatically and/or through a centralized console?
  7. Is there a solution for laptops which aren't in the LAN very often? Is it possible to configure that the backups goes directly to the offsite location if the BDR server isn't reachable?
