What do you like best?

It is very feature rich. The same platform is used to backup virtual machines (on multiple different virtualization platforms), physical machines at the file level as well as the image level.

The interface is very intuitive which makes training our staff and creating internal documentation easy. Job functions are efficient and stable, which greatly reduces the amount of management time our staff needs to invest in the backups we manage.

We have always been able to restore our documents - 100% of the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about the product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Backup software in general can be a beast. I highly recommend allocating out some time and deploy a trial in your environment. Truly test all the functions of the product. I believe you will find VembuBDR to be one of the best, most complete backup solutions on the market today. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Reduced the amount of hours our staff needs to invest into managing backups.

The synthetic full technology (retention) works great and has reduce the amount of space our backups consume by over 30%.

It is an overall easy product to use/manage, which greatly increases our engineering teams moral as it relieves stress over failed backups. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

First and foremost the value you get for the price you pay is great. Vembu is a competitive product to Veeam and Nakivo, yet the pricing is much more pleasant. Also, my support experience with them has been good. They were responsive (even while I was trialing the product) both times I've contacted them. I'm also unsing Vembu to backup to tape, which is great that this is included in the BDR Suite (no add-ons required). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If you have very unique and somewhat random backup scheduling needs, Vembu doesn't do that too well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Vembu is a great choice if you're backing up VMs to disk/arrays/SAN/NAS/tape. Also look into their Offiste DR offering. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The main benefit I've realized is less time Administering backups - creating and changing them is quick. Another very positive benefit is that I've been able to do additional backups since Vembu does the deduplicating/compression natively. Oh, and the storage encryption is all there (and I use my own keys for that). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As an MSP we looked into a variety of different DR and backup products to accomplish some goals we had in our DR strategy.

Our biggest challenge was to find a vendor that would allow for us to host our own backups (both for our own infastracture but also to sell as a service to our clients). Vembu ticked the boxes well for low cost of entry and license fee structure and gives you the ability to host your own backup data or if you want use their cloud storage. We are now on our second iteration of our BDR server as the old server could no longer accomidate the storage or performance needs that our growing DR SaaS offering demanded. Support has been very responsive and helpful even in situations where configuration of the hosts or client side machines might have been on contributing factor to whatever issue may have been causing a backup to fail to complete. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

BDR and OffsiteDR (the 2 major components of Vembu's product) had a slight learning curve that seemed a bit touch and go to adobt initially. We have been using vembu for 4 years and the product, support, and documentation have developed and matured a great deal since we first came online with them. Online video demos and whitepapers vembu has did get us through most of the questions and configuration challenges during early onboarding, but it has taken some time to really fully comprehend and understand the in's and out' of the software as a whole. Possibly some onboarding assistance would be great for new MSP's looking to use Vembu in the way that we are would be great to offer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Dont hesitate to ask their support for help if you are needing assistance, but send complete lists of questions compiled and clearly stated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Vembu has been able to solve our need of using their product as an MSP SaaS offering to our customer base, while allowing us to host all of the customers data internally with a product that makes sense for our business model. With a lower cost to entry over its short list of competitors the SaaS we have created out of the Vembu product has been profitable for us to the metrics that we had placed around DR SaaS in our suite of services portfolio.

It is easy to setup and monitor the backup jobs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a little confusing at first. However, after working in it a little, it becomes more familiar. Also the restore process can seem complicated as far as the options provided. Highly suggest reading the user guides on this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For the cost, you cannot beat this product for what it does. Definitely study up on the user guides when starting to use this product. It will help in navigating the interface and understanding the functions immensely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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.

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for your feedback. Glad to hear that Vembu BDR Suite works well for your environment.

Currently, we haven't grouped File-level backup under any of our existing editions. File-level backup using Desktop OS is free and if you perform the same using Server OS which requires purchasing a valid license.

Kindly get in touch with us through vembu-support@vembu.com for further updates or queries.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Vembu facilitated the daily backups of files we were working on and were updated every day. In order to avoid file loss, I chose to use Vembu, as it was recommended by other colleagues. Since these files were not on a specific file server, I installed the application on the very computer that served as a "server". Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Despite the easy setup, this is not a simple application. It took some time to get it set up the way you wanted. More offline documentation would be welcome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The only option used was to backup files daily, for this function the tool behaved well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I would definitely take a look at Vembu as opposed to something like Veeam. It's a great alternative that has me sold. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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.

What do you like best?

Incremental VM Backups, Customer Support and Scheduled Backups as well as Replication options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Pricing is better than veeam and the solution offers just as much, if not more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
