This solution addresses the Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) needs of organizations of any size while being a cost-effective solution that ensures complete data protection, thereby resulting in Business Continuity and High Availability.

The company has found a home for its flagship product within the SMB market for Backup and Disaster Recovery of virtual (VMware and Hyper-V) and physical (Windows Servers & workstations) environments. But with this latest release of Vembu BDR Suite 3.9.0, the company is attempting to penetrate deeper into Mid-sized Businesses by adding a host of new critical features.

Vembu BDR Suite 3.9.0 offers manifold features and enhancements to meet the different needs of diverse IT environments. The company's stated goal of this new version is to provide advancements in terms of Storage, Security, and Data Restoration.  And it looks like these key highlights of this release will do just that.

Vembu BDR Suite 3.9.0 offers:

  • Tape Backup Support - Vembu extends its support to native tape backup through the Vembu BDR console. You can utilize the best known 3-2-1 backup strategy of having 3 copies of backup data in 2 different media and 1 off-site location for an efficient DR plan. This secondary backup approach will help you to archive the image based backups in both virtual and physical environments like VMware, Hyper-V and Windows Servers and recover them in multiple formats like VHD, VMDK, VHDX, VMDK-Flat and RAW.
  • Auto Authorization at Off-site DR - Enabling the auto authorization feature will allow only the authorized Vembu BDR servers to get connected with Vembu OffsiteDR servers (Replication) using the registration key.
  • Quick VM Recovery on ESXi for Hyper-V and Disk Image Backups - Instant recovery of backed up data on VMware ESXi is now made available for both the Hyper-V VMs and Windows Servers backup jobs for an effective Disaster Recovery. This recovery of the virtual machines happens in a matter of seconds by booting the backed up machine directly from the backup storage repository, from where all the files, folders and applications can be accessed.
  • Windows Event Viewer Integration - All the events of the Vembu BDR, Off-siteDR & agents like information on critical, warnings and major events are updated in the Event Viewer of Windows Servers when enabled for better management.
  • Advanced Backup level encryption for all agents - Users will be able to configure AES-256 bit encryption for all their backup jobs of VMware, Hyper-V, Disk Image through their customized passwords using corresponding password hints as well.
  • OffsiteDR Server retentions using Vembu Network Backup - OffsiteDR retention policies are now available for the Network Backup plugins, like the image based backups of VMware, Hyper-V and Disk Image backups.
  • Listing of files & Folders in aciTree structure - The listing of files and folders while configuring backups on a Network Backup plugin is now up with the aciTree structure for easy and quick navigation.
  • Pre/Post backup scripts for all Network & Image Backup clients - This feature provides the ability to configure running custom actions before and after the execution backup schedule. The custom actions may include running an application using some script files.
  • AngularJS conversion of UI for Vembu OnlineBackups - The overall UI of Vembu OnlineBackup is improved for better performance like the current Vembu BDR and Off-siteDR.
  • Update of consumed space on the Vembu Portal - Based on the display of the consumed space of Vembu Online Backup and SaaSBackup plugins, the customer will be able to allocate and purchase further cloud storage post purchase and upgrade. 

There's no slowing down for Vembu.  According to the company's tech expert, Nagarajan Chandrasekaran, Product Manager of Vembu BDR Suite, there's more to come. The next major release will allow customers to be able to backup the failover VMs on a Hyper-V cluster, configure instant boot on AWS and a lot more.
