Highlights of Product review:
Vembu VMBackup, which is a part of the Vembu BDR Suite, is attempting to bring enterprise like features to the masses, at an affordable price. The software works across VMware, Hyper-V, and Physical server environments, and allows for application aware backups of Microsoft server products. The software even offers advanced features such as instant recovery, and hot backups that are designed to ensure zero VM downtime.
Brien Posey, in his detailed product review of Vembu VMBackup v3.5.0 concludes as below:
“Overall Vembu BDR did exactly what it was supposed to do. It created reliable backups that I was able to restore without issue. I also applaud Vembu for bringing an enterprise like feature set to a relatively low cost backup application (https://www.vembu.com/vembu-bdr-suite-pricing/) that seems to be targeted to the SMB market.
Although I didn’t find any major bugs, I ran into a few minor quirks throughout my evaluation. There were also a few things (such as physical server backups) that were somewhat non-intuitive.
My overall opinion of Vembu BDR 3.5.0 is that while it seems to be a solid product, there was a bit of a learning curve. In all fairness, there is a learning curve associated with most of the backup products that I have used, so the learning curve should not act as a deterrent to trying Vembu. I do however, think that the product would benefit from centralized physical server backup scheduling, and from remote access to its virtual drive.
When I write a review for this site, it has become customary for me to assign a star rating. I decided to give this product a score of 4.5, which is a Gold award. There are a few areas in which I think the interface could be improved, and I also think that the documentation could be better. The fact remains however, that I didn’t encounter any bugs (assuming that I used a fully compatible browser), although I did not test every feature. I found that once I got past the interface and the browser issues, the software did exactly what it was supposed to do.”
