Backup Solution for VMware vSphere

VMware vSphere integrated to data centers results in multiple advantages, especially reducing the resource utilization and IT budget by virtualizing the hardware, network and storage. Organizations, be it big or small, have already started moving towards VMware for their data center management without having to compromise on business continuity. Not ignoring the fact that VMware vSphere comes with inbuilt snapshot functionality for the VMs but this alone cannot account for guaranteed consistent backups. A third party software or hardware vendors offering backup and recovering solutions are becoming a big deal for businesses in terms of expenditure.

See What Our Customers Say About Us


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 when we do our routine check, the backups of run in the 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.

All companies are looking to keep their data safe and secure, with Vembu ensuring that our data was protected with an efficient backup solution. Vembu is an ally with regard to backup security. The tool is very practical and easy to access the settings. A good application and reference in backup software. Meets the needs of diverse IT environments, thus ensuring business continuity.

VMware Replication

VM Replication helps to replicate the business critical VMs from one ESXi host to another host. So, the replicated VM will be in standby mode on the target ESXi host. During a disaster, the replicated VM can failover on the target host which can handle the production load. Also, you can permanently failback the failover VM to any ESXi host.
Agentless VM Replication – VMware VM data can be replicated from source ESXi host to target host without the need of installing proxies in Host or VM
Network and IP remapping – Automatically map production host network and IP address with the DR host network to avoid manual work during replica failover
Replica Failover – Replica data can be recovered to a different target or rolled back to the same source
Undo Failover – Undo Failover is a process of reverting back the replica to its original state before failing over replica VM
Permanent Failover – In case the source machine is not recoverable after a disaster or you want to continue business operations with the replica VM itself, then you can use permanent failover option
Replica Failback – If you want to resume the source VM operation after disaster recovery and shift the production load back to the source VM or ESXi host, you can use replica failback feature
Undo Failback – Helps to revert back the failed VMs back to its original state (ie., failover state). The VM snapshot created after failback process will be terminated and the VM will be reverted to its failover state
Commit Failback – If the failed back VM is recovered properly and running without any performance issue as expected, then we can confirm the failback by committing it. Commit Failback is the confirmation process of failback
