Company challenge

The Mackie Group required a solution that addresses their exposure to the lack of consistent backup & restoration services for production VMs, physical disks, and/or file services. The solution had to accommodate their environment of various business applications, messaging, database, Windows & Non-Windows systems. Full and incremental backup capabilities were required as well.

The Vembu Solution

The Vembu BDR suite comes with the complete package where it addresses both physical and virtual environments’ image backup requirement. All the changes during the incremental backup data is monitored and processed using CBT (Change Block Tracking method) tracking drivers and patent APIs. Also the backed-up data is efficiently handled at the backup server using VembuHiveTM file system with high end encryption and deduplication. Using Vembu BDR suite of products, the IT administrator can fulfil the company’s whole IT backup requirements using the following below products.

The Mackie Group also lauded the affordability of Vembu’s solutions saying that price was one of the major deciding factor for choosing Vembu over other competitors. They also commented that they would recommend Vembu to others as the product works and the price point is quite attractive.


On implementing Vembu’s solution, the Mackie group were now able to provide on demand file restores for the business with meaningful point in time recovery. They were also able to simulate other restoration functions like our VMs and Exchange log files and databases. Their backup verification process has been simplified and allows them to move onto other technology matters.
