Backup as a Service with BDRCloud: A Comprehensive Guide to Leveraging BDRCloud by Vembu for MSP Success

Businesses rely on data for decision-making, operations, and growth. However, with the increasing volume and complexity of data, ensuring its protection and availability has become a daunting task for businesses of all sizes. Also, with the proliferation of cyber threats, data breaches, natural disasters, and human errors, the risk of data loss and downtime is higher than ever. This is where Managed Service Providers (MSPs) step in, offering Backup as a Service (BaaS) to help clients safeguard their data and ensure business continuity providing reliable backup solutions.

In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore how MSPs can leverage BDRCloud to deliver profitable Backup as a Service offerings, catering to the diverse needs of modern businesses. From backup of remote & diverse IT workloads to storing data anywhere, managing backups centrally, and maximizing profitability through the BDRCloud Service Provider Partner Program, we'll delve into the key features and benefits of BDRCloud that empower MSPs to succeed in today's competitive market.

Backup Remote & Diverse IT Workloads: Ensuring Comprehensive Protection

One of the key challenges MSPs face when offering Backup as a Service is the diverse range of IT workloads their clients rely on across multiple locations. BDRCloud addresses this challenge by offering remote backup support for over 20 diverse workloads, including:

  • Virtual Machine Backup: VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, oVirt, Proxmox
  • Servers & Endpoints Backup: Windows, Linux, Mac
  • SaaS Application Backup: Microsoft 365, Google Workspace
  • Cloud VM Backup: AWS, Azure
  • NAS/File Share Backup
  • Database Backup: SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle
  • Application Backup: Microsoft Exchange Server, SharePoint

With BDRCloud, MSPs can confidently backup workloads from anywhere, ensuring comprehensive protection for their clients' data regardless of the platform or environment it resides in.

Store Data Anywhere: Flexibility in Storage Targets

In addition to supporting diverse workloads, BDRCloud offers flexibility when it comes to storing backup data. MSPs can choose to store backup data on their preferred storage infrastructure, including:

  • BDRCloud-AWS S3 or BDRCloud-Wasabi
  • Public cloud providers such as Amazon S3, Azure Blob, Google Cloud, S3 Compatible Storage like Wasabi, Backblaze, MinIO, etc
  • On-premise/Remote storage like NAS, DAS, SAN, or Tape

This versatility allows MSPs to tailor backup storage to meet the unique needs and preferences of each client, ensuring that backup data is stored securely, cost-effectively, and in compliance with regulatory requirements.

Centralized Management for Simplified Administration

Managing backup operations across multiple clients and locations can be a complex and time-consuming task for MSPs. With BDRCloud's centralized management capabilities, however, this challenge becomes a thing of the past. There are two flexible options for centralized management:

  1. BDRCloud - A Cloud-based Centralized Management Console: MSPs can leverage BDRCloud's cloud-based management console to centrally manage backup operations for all clients from anywhere, at any time. With this option, MSPs can eliminate the need for hardware investments, reducing costs and simplifying infrastructure management. This cloud-centric approach empowers MSPs to deliver backup services without the constraints of traditional hardware dependencies.
  2. BDRSuite - Self-hosted Central Management Console: For MSPs who prefer to maintain control over their management infrastructure, this option allows MSPs to deploy BDRSuite in their preferred environment, whether it's virtual, physical, cloud, or Docker setups, and manage backup of all diverse workloads from a central management server.

Regardless of the chosen option, MSPs can simplify backup administration, save time and resources, and ensure efficient monitoring and management of backup activities across the entire client base.


Multi-tenancy in BDRCloud offers MSPs a streamlined approach to managing multiple clients or tenants. With this feature, MSPs can organize client workloads, view and manage the backup infrastructure for each client separately, and track storage usage per client. Additionally, multi-tenancy enables MSPs to provide self-service login for each client, empowering them to perform recovery tasks and manage their data autonomously.


In the highly competitive MSP market, differentiation is key to success. BDRCloud enables MSPs to stand out from the crowd by offering branding options. MSPs can brand BDRCloud's solutions as their own, delivering personalized service under their own banner and strengthening their brand identity in the marketplace.
