How does Vembu Backup for File & Application work?

Install a Vembu Client for File & Application Backup on every machine where you have the files and applications which you would like to backup. The Vembu BDR Backup server installed in the target machine can be connected to all the clients and backup can be further performed.Your own storage device can be chosen as the destination for the backed up data to reside using which Recovery can be performed.

Vembu offers Continuous Data Protection for the file backup and uses its 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 transferring to the BDR Backup Server.

You can restore the backed up data from the Client Agents console or by logging into Vembu BDR Backup Server.

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.
