How does Vembu Cloud Backup for File & Application work?

You need to install Vembu Client for File & Application Backup (Cloud) on the target machines that have the files and applications which are to be backed up.
After the initial full backup, Vembu uses a Changed Block Tracking algorithm to backup only the changes in the files/folders during subsequent incremental backup schedules.

To back up the applications, Vembu utilizes Microsoft APIs or Utility tools to dump the backup data from the application locally before uploading it to Vembu Cloud.

You can restore the backup data using the installed Client Agent or by logging into Vembu Cloud GUI from any machine and restore from anywhere any time.

What Our Customers Say

We have been using Vembu for years and the BDR suite is an example of the excellent software we have come to expect from Vembu. It has the features we are looking for, but most important of all, it is stable. We tried multiple vendors through the years until we finally came across his company. We stayed with them because when we need to do a restore and routine check, the backup data is there.
We have used other backup/DR tools in the past which have always failed when you need them most, we ended up doing the backups manually which became too much. We then found and tested Vembu and It’s so easy to use, we can connect remotely to keep an eye on the tasks and the whole setup is a joy to use. Support is also fantastic, they are quick at responding and very helpful and informative.
