Updated – 12/04/2019 – Vembu BDR Essentials – Now up to 10 CPU Sockets!
Last month Vembu announced Vembu BDR Essentials – an exclusive Backup and Disaster Recovery package for small businesses having backup requirements up to 6 CPU sockets or 50 VMs. This is great for small businesses which can cut up to 50% on their regular backup expenses. Data loss has the capacity to devastate any business, be it big or small.
Recovering from data loss or any kind of disaster can take months or even years without having a proper backup solution in place. The situation turns out worse when considering small business firms. Investing in a backup solution once seemed extravagant, but now it is the best way to ensure that you can keep your business online. That’s why it is important to invest in a sound and reliable backup solution, to ensure that you can get back to business when you encounter data loss.

Vembu BDR Essentials is also agentless VMBackup to ensure you have a hassle-free backup experience. You can backup multiple VMs in a single job. Vembu automatically selects the data transport mode depending on the backup infrastructure.
The frequency of backing up your data also determines how fast you can rise up when disaster strikes. With near Continuous Data Protection, you can backup your data every 15 minutes. This ensures that you have an RPO of less than 15 minutes.
Recoverability is the crux of backup, and Quick VM Recovery ensures that you can get your business up and running in minutes. You can also test the recoverability through various options like Boot check, Mount check and Image Integrity check.
With Vembu Universal Explorer, you can browse, view and granularity recover individual items of Microsoft applications like Exchange, SharePoint, SQL and Active Directory. This way, you don’t have to wait for the entire image to be restored.
Your backup isn’t any good if it rests in your production premises, where a single disaster could cause damage to your production as well as backup servers. To ensure that doesn’t happen, you can replicate your VMs to an offsite location with Vembu OffsiteDR and Vembu CloudDR to be extra safe.
Previously, users having 6 CPU sockets/50 VMs and lesser could avail the Essentials package. Now with the extension, users having 10 CPU sockets/100 VMs and lesser can avail the package and enjoy the benefits.
The goal of the Essentials package is to help small businesses cut down on their data protection expenses. Now with the upgraded package extension, even mid-sized businesses can be benefited without having to compromise on any features.
Licenses for Vembu BDR Essentials are provided at the host-level and VM-level depending on your business infrastructure. You can also opt for Enterprise or Standard edition based on your requirements.
If your infrastructure grows as time goes, and your environment grows along with it. When there comes a time, where your backup requirements exceed 6 CPU sockets, then check out Vembu BDR Suite. While the BDR Essentials is custom-designed to protect your virtual environments, the BDR Suite is a comprehensive solution using which you can protect your entire IT environment. It has all the features necessary to take care of backup requirements for your environment – physical, virtual or the Cloud.
