What do you like best?

The product itself is constantly improved and updated, and the Vembu support team is always on hand to assist with problems. Feature requests are taken seriously and usually implemented if the feature will benefit all clients.

The licensing of the product is slightly over-complicated, but this could be improved and the support personnel are always on hand to answer questions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Install Vembu BDR suite in a virtual environment for testing prior to roll out in order to familiarize yourself with the product prior to installing in production.

Backup and disaster recovery - we now have relative peace of mind.

"Affordable Replication"

What do you like best?

We have been migrating clients from VEEAM to Vembu at a steady rate. Vembu has a consistent and affordable price point versus the ridiculous scaling costs of other solutions on the market. Also a huge bonus is they offer a solution that is a VM appliance that is easy to install and implement.

What do you dislike?

The interface and licensing can be a bit clunky to work through at times. as a web interface the cache on the browser can occasionally cause conflict with license change or backup changes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Key value for Vembu is price point. Backup and replication is pretty straightforward for all applications; so the key is value for dollars, not bells and whistles that you will never use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary use for us is failover replication backups to secondary servers. The differential replication is a huge help for large servers after the initial backup completes.

"Excellent software and support"

What do you like best?

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.

What do you dislike?

Had a couple of problems with the upgrade to the BDR suite because previous version did not uninstall properly. Fortunately, support was great and the problem was resolved quickly. Of course, the problems were possibly, maybe even probably, caused by the Microsoft OS being flaky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's excellent software that is comprehensive enough to meet the needs of various types of clients and most every scenario. Plus is stable and the company continually makes upgrades to fit the changing circumstances of our business. The price is certainly fair. So after years of using it with multiple clients, I can strongly recommend it. I've been in this business for 25 years so I know a good thing when I see it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Works great with Bitlocker without the huge price tag"

What do you like best?

When you choose to restore a hard drive to a VM you can choose to mount it as if you added a VMDK in vmware. This allows Windows to pick up the hard drive and unlock it with bitlocker easily.

What do you dislike?

I wish the file level backup was part of the standard edition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The customer support has been awesome and the product has exceeded our expectations. Definitely give it a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Vembu has solved our backup problems of multiple VMWare hosts in two locations. Backing up continuous incrementals across the VPN using changed block addressing is working rather well. We have also setup a full backup over the VPN to happen on the weekend. It should be noted that we are backing up a Linux phone system here not a monster file store.

"A great soulton"

What do you like best?

The clean and friendly web based interface. It's also very dynamic for us. I can back up and restore on the file level and also restore and entire VM in a matter of minutes if I had to. The price was also attractive compared to something like Veeam.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really so far. If I had to choose one thing it would be tech support hours. I had a few issues with a couple of my servers not backing up initially and the engineers work off of an India time zone where I am in Mountain Time. It worked out, it was just a little inconvenient at the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely take a look at Vembu as opposed to something like Veeam. It's a great alternative that has me sold.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A full backup solution for our company that is dynamic and just works. I love the fact that I can fire up a VM from a backup and have it running on the BDR server itself if I have no other VM host to run it. Very versatile.

"Great support and product"

What do you like best?

Implementing this solutions is very easy, installing the server and configuring the clients. Support is always exceptional, the Vembu engineers are always hands-on and very talented. The price is very good, including free backups for or client OS.

What do you dislike?

There are a few missing bits on the server compared to their previous product (Storegrid), like you cannot edit any client configuration from the server side. The reporting is not perfect as you can get a missed backup email and a successful email seconds apart for the exact same job, probably a bug. The portal can be improved as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great individuals that are doing a great job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up tens of small company users or mobile users (laptop users), protecting the local data. It helped us rebuild machines that suffered hard failures without loosing any data.

"Great for Disaster recovery"

What do you like best?

Easy to navigate interface. Setting up VM backups for disaster recovery is straightforward and works great. I receive image integrity reports showing the boot status of the backed up VMs and I can perform a manual test recovery in a few minutes. Just works for both my Hyper-V and VMware VMs and physical servers. Licensing options are reasonably priced - especially the small business less than 6 CPU licenses- allow annual subscriptions or one time purchases.

What do you dislike?

Various menu items can run a little sluggish at times. Not much to dislike-- affordable, provided all the backup and recovery features our organization needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Support is excellent-- At all hours I have submitted simple to complicated questions and I receive responses almost immediately and support assists until issue is resolved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed a comprehensive backup solution for multiple VMs for both Hyper-V and VMware. Recovery a single file or folder --or recovering an entire VM; process is easy and straightforward.

There is no duplication of data. Vembu has crafted one of the best-looking interfaces. And I don’t mean all flashy look. It’s well thought out, very simple to use. A color combination is easy on the eyes. All the information is visible and is not hidden under a submenu of the submenu like with some products. We can enable Application Aware Settings. Vembu has put a lot of thought about the features in this product and Replication is no exception. Replication is accessible from the menu and a procedure to set up is as simple as and has some great features.

What do you dislike?

Price should be lower to get more customer

"Vembu free version is perfect for small businesses"

What do you like best?

I like the free version as it offers perpetual license to backup 3 VM's with full features. This is great for small businesses that has 1 or 2 esxi hosts and is new to virtualization. It allows the small business to take advantage of the software without spending that much and because of that they can plan ahead and include Vembu product licensing in the future once the need to backup more servers arises. Vembu also has an appliance version and is also perfect for small business. Licensing another OS just for backup is not a really cost effective for small businesses and this feature is perfect.

What do you dislike?

Once a vembu server is synced to an online account and for some reason the admin needs to sync the server to another online account, the admin has only 2 options. Either he uninstalls and reinstall the product to change the server id and sync to an online account or have a tech support change it manually on the database for them. Option 2 is not documented so most of the time, admins will just uninstall and reinstall and sometimes that is disruptive. Recovery of the vembu server is complicated and would require an admin in depth knowledge of how to recover the server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Small business backup strategy while using on premise NAS with optional replication to another offsite storage or to the cloud. The backup is very efficient and simple to use. Adding a NAS to the vembu server is a straightforward process. My client receives a report that a successful backup has been completed and this is very helpful compared to their previous backup solution that has no management and notification alerts.

"Very good price for money"

What do you like best?

Local, forever incremental backups are extremely useful. Restoring a file from a backup is surprisingly easy.

What do you dislike?

Incremental backups seem to take up too much disk space in relation to actual changes. I'm not sure how data deduplication works when there are more than one machines in the same task.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Vembu BDR Suite to back up all my locally-hosted VMs in order to be able to react fast in case of a failure and/or restore specific files if something goes wrong.

"Vembu needs more time"

What do you like best?

The free version will allow me to make an image to use in vmware, I have been happy with the setup so far

What do you dislike?

a little convoluted to get from trial to free, I couldn't find a way to activate it, it was not very intuitive, I wanted to use the free version for a while to get a better feel for the software, we have a medium sized virtual server farm and need a robust solution. Our current solution was undersold and has created both a backup problem and a business problem as the principle is concerned how we were undersold.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software definitely has a learning curve, I'm sure it can do everything I want it to and more, but I had to move into another project so I am still working on more than a basic setup. We may need to revisit this as I have more P to V to accomplish first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

physical to virtual move of a server worked well, better than VmWare's for me. I was able to setup and run backups, Liked that I could automate backups, I had to do manual when I used the free version of Veeam.

"Best Backup software out there for SME's"

What do you like best?

Incremental VM Backups, Customer Support and Scheduled Backups as well as Replication options.

What do you dislike?

The application opens in a Browser window instead of as an application.

This can sometimes conflict with Server group policies on internet browsers and/or webpages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pricing is better than veeam and the solution offers just as much, if not more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up of Important VM's and also there is less space consumed with the backups thanks to the incremental backup solution.

This also has numerous restore points up to a month for a backup.

Previously we could not automate backups within the software, we had to run a script in windows and schedule the script. now we do not need to worry about that anymore.

"Vembu BDR Product Overview"

What do you like best?

one solution that meet all backup requirement. The products under the Suite can be deployed in any location like on-premise, offsite and the Cloud.

What do you dislike?

Earlier backup product (Storegrid) having features to keep backup on local disk but this features are missing in Vembu BDR.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

the most advantage is Vembu BDR supporting all types of backup i.e workstation, Physical Server, Vmware, Hyper-V, application aware backup, image backup, network backup etc.. & most great business benefits is unlimited workstation backup free in free edition.

"Excellent Support Rec"

What do you like best?

Response time is great. Each time I have submitted an issue I received a reply back within minutes.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, the only thing I am not thrilled with is the lack of comprehensive reporting by the Online Backup application. It would be nice to have some reports to better monitor my clients with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am looking for a more comprehensive reporting feature from the Online Backup app to better help me monitor my clients.

"It just works!!"

What do you like best?

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.

What do you dislike?

I've not found anything I dislike with the product as yet, we've tested in a DR situation and that worked great, the licensing is easy to understand and manageable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like I said, we lost all confidence in the other backup tools we were using as they failed on us at the critical times. Now we have a automated solution that just works in the background.

"Vembu BDR - A Good Starting Point for Disaster Recovery"

What do you like best?

Vembu is easy to configure and has a robust disaster recovery topology if utilized with OffsiteDR. Their support and service is fantastic too.

What do you dislike?

Backup restore times are longer than you would expect, which could be a limiting factor if restoring a large backup quickly is needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data backup and disaster recovery. We have managed to restore accidentally deleted files as well as recover from server loss.

"Great tool for VM backups and replication"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of Vembu, it's super intuitive to use in either ESX or Hyper V. I've tried both full/increment VM backup and VM replication and both work flawlessly. It's also a really cost effective way to backup your environment.

Finally, what makes it even better is the support guys are on point.

What do you dislike?

At the moment i've not seen anything bad about Vembu. The only really issue i've had was a bug in the VembuBDR version deployed via OVF, but the support guys were able to point me to a solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say run the trial and make your own mind up. The product works really well and it's easy to use and cost effective. Also more importantly support are quick to respond and know their stuff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are a lot of products like this, but I would say cost and support are what makes Vembu stand out.

"Life saver "

What do you like best?

Vembu saved our startup on more than one occasion when a winter storm hit the city a few years ago. When a power outage caused the power to be down for about 3 days we had set our servers to backup nightly and it was able to save all our data to Vembu’s servers.

What do you dislike?

There isn’t too much to dislike about their service, the only thing that I’d suggest a slight improvement on is their base line prices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure your workstations and your servers are compatible with their software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We established a great sense of peace of mind using Vembu, both with our records and customer information.

"Vembu provides a comprehensive suite for backup solutions"

What do you like best?

I can backup files, servers and VMs from a common interface, and replicate a 2nd copy offsite. I have pushed the product hard, and the vembu support team has always been quick to assist when needed. It is nice to know that type of support is available.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much, you just need to use the trial product for a while to get used to the console.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an MSP my customers feel safer knowing that they get a daily emailed image of their server running on alternate hardware. So they know their backups are good backups.

"Nice to have but not a must for small businesses"

What do you like best?

We liked that the process was fairly automated following initial setup. There were jobs running in the background that backed up all of our files each night.

What do you dislike?

I felt it was a bit overkill for our company. We employ a large number of people, but most of them are in the warehouse. Our corporate office is only comprised of about 100 people. We found it was more than we needed and could easily manually back up our files for a lot cheaper.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We tried it out as a way of continuing the automation initiatives we have recently ventured into, but we found that file and system backups were easily done as a manual job once a day. We didn't feel the need to pay for such a robust platform.

"BDR Suite"

What do you like best?

Good Interface, easy to load, entire suite is covered for complete easy access to graphing.Automated backup verification

Near CDP ( <15 min)

Changed Block Tracking (CBT) – Incremental backups

Advanced reverse incremental – via Vembu HIVE, it creates bootable full virtual disks (VMDK, VHD and KVM) for all recovery points without using any additional resources

Retention Policies

Quick VM recovery (for ESXi and Hyper-V or KVM)

Disk level recovery

What do you dislike?

the free version has some limitation and those limitations apply for VMware vSphere or ESXi, Hyper-V, KVM and also to physical systems as Vembu has the possibility (via agents) to backup Windows systems (desktops/laptops/servers) and also provide a Bare Metal Recovery for those systems.

"The Best Backup/DR tool"

What do you like best?

We can have unlimited VMs backup using this tool. The replication feature allows you to replicate between remote sites seamlessly. The licensing model works for Bare metal servers & Virtual Hypervisors as well.All this with a very minimum cost.

What do you dislike?

License binding to the physical host. We need to change the license (re-assign) to the new host which is not an easy task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a easy plug and play kind of setup with not much complexities involved, then go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It solved my backup solution for heterogeneous environment. We use it for virtual platform, bare metal platform, Physical hosts.

"Simple and effective software for VM backups"

What do you like best?

Cost effective and flexibility of the software. Dont need expensive hardware to backup , restore or store data

What do you dislike?

The software is meeting all our requirement which is intended to be done. We are basically using this for VM backups of our development machines and sometimes licencing compliance check of the software causes issues in our environment due to VM's being migrated to other host. But i dont blame the software for it, as VM's need to be kept on the licenced host

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up of devolopment VM's on a daily basis with lot of data changes is hard to achieve. Quick backups and easy restore procedures are commendable.

"Backup and recovery"

What do you like best?

Simple interface, quick effective suppor,. offsite backu, price.

The truth is that the software is used very little, from time to time making some backups was delayed too much

I recommend it, the truth to be able to directly backup the Vembu cloud without problems is the best

We offer a 24 × 7 monitoring and management service (Vembu BDR360) and we have a common tool for granular restoration at the level of Exchange, SQL, AD, SharePoin applications, something that is excellent for companies

The extent of data the software can recover even after a crash you assumed was going to completely wipe you out

Not a very attractive interface which is a personal qualm.

"Great product great support!"

What do you like best?

Simple interface. Quick effective support.

What do you dislike?

As product gains a customer base it will be important to have a ticketing system (well one that customer is exposed to) rather than simple e-mail exchanges.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently we are using only free modules but will be reviewing the suite as an alternative to VEEAM. Perhaps also a secondary backup/replication system.
