GFS Retention

Provides ability to specify retention policy for merging multiple recovery points via GFS (grandfather – father – son) settings. Enabling GFS Retention will reduce the time taken to restore backed up machines and most importantly reduce the size of merged image files in the storage location. Generally, daily merge is known as ‘son’, weekly merge is known as ‘father’ and monthly merge is known as ‘grandfather’

Incremental with Changed Block Tracking

Vembu Changed Block Tracking (CBT) Driver actively tracks the changes in between incremental backups and backup only the modified blocks (i.e., data) to the BDR backup server.

Forever Incremental

Vembu ImageBackup merges the incrementals based on the number of daily restore points we choose to keep. So IT admins can run forever incremental with only one full backup.

Application aware Backup

Application-aware backup process helps to create consistent database snapshots by quiescing the applications using Microsoft VSS.

Bandwidth Throttling

It enables the user to limit the bandwidth used by the backup process during data transfer. If you don’t want to spend your entire bandwidth on backups, use this feature to control or limit the bandwidth.

Near Continuous Data Protection (CDP)

Vembu ImageBackup allows IT admins to run incremental backup every 15 minutes to offer Near CDP for physical Windows IT data centers.

Backup Windows Settings

If you don’t want to run incrementals during non working hours and weekends, you can enable this feature and specify the time frame.
