Vembu BDR Suite 4 – new features coming

Just a little note about the new features of Vembu 4.0 coming soon. Vembu has put some serious cycles into adding a ton of new features into their product.  

 

Some new features include Hyper-V cluster backup in which Vembu support backing up the VMs in the cluster and even if VMs configured for backup are bounced around hosts. Regardless incremental backup will continue to happen without any interruption. VHDxs that are shared are now supported. Vembu can switch between CheckSun based backups in case of a CBT failure. You can now Single sign-on with the new Credential Manager

 

Not new features but a few existing things have also been enhanced. Position tracking – Backups will resume where they left off if there was, for example, a network failure. You can now configure the specification of the Virtual Hardware during the live recovery. Parameters like the socket count and core counts, memory, hard disk provision type, and network adapter etc etc.
You can now generate a report for Quick VM recovery process with details from the VM job like VM Name, Recovery point, Start and End time, target hypervisor and the status of the recovery.

 

During the recovery of the backed-up Hyper-V VM, a separate agent is pushed to the target machine for performing the full VM recovery. This nice Hyper-V recovery feature. You can also now select on a per hyper-v VM basis to choose application awareness or not.

 

Before you couldn’t activate or deactivate a particular BDR server connected to an OffsiteDR server. This has now been enhanced so you can.

 

A new set of APIs is developed to give a detailed report on storage utilization like the size of the VM, storage space utilized by a backup job, compression rate etc. This reminds me of a tool I built years ago called vDisk Informer.

 

These guys are rocketing forward with new features and enhancements.
