  • Supports automatic truncation of transaction logs and system file exclusion
Near-Continuous Data Protection – Automate your backup & replication every 15 mins, every few hours, once a day, or even on specific weekdays.

Incremental Backups for VMware VMs – Vembu uses VMware Changed Block Tracking technology to perform incremental backups for VMware VMs

Incremental Backups for Hyper-V VMs – Vembu uses Resilient Change Tracking (RCT) and its proprietary Changed Block Tracking driver to perform incremental backup for Hyper-V VMs

Flexible Retention Policies – Vembu offers Basic and Advanced Retention Policies to retain multiple recovery points that span for days, weeks, months and years. Retain backup data up to 999 days using basic retention or go for advanced retention settings with a periodic merge of your older restore points.

Scale-Out Backup Repository – Vembu supports different storage media such as Local drives, NAS(NFS and CIFS) and SAN(iSCSI and FC). You can scale-out storages as and when required.

Backup-Level Encryption – Vembu allows you to set and use a system-generated or user-defined password to encrypt your backup data using the AES-256 bit algorithm.

Instant Boot VM – Restore your backed up VMware and Hyper-V VMs within few seconds on any hypervisor: VMware/Hyper-V/KVM and meet RTO of less than 15 minutes.

Granular Recovery – Recover only the required files, folders or MS Application items directly from the backup without the need to restore the entire machine every time.

Cross-Platform Migration – Download your backed up VMs into different virtual file formats like VHD, VMDK, Flat.VMDK, VHDX and RAW. The downloaded disks can later be used to migrate your backup VMs to different hypervisors or platforms.

Offsite Copy/DR – Ensure additional data protection by replicating a copy of your backup data to a local server in a remote location or public clouds: AWS/Azure/Google or Vembu Cloud for disaster recovery purposes.

Automatic backup verification -Vembu BDR Backup Server verifies the recoverability of the backed up VMware and Hyper-V VMs with its 3 tier automated backup verification – Integrity test, Boot test and Mount test.

Vembu BDR360 Cloud – A centralized console for monitoring the backup jobs configured from multiple Vembu BDR Backup Servers and Offsite DR Servers. It generates extensive reports for the backup jobs and also offers other features like group management and email notifications.

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.
