Vembu BDR Suite 5.3 – Endpoint Backups

In my post on August 2nd, 2022 I mentioned the new features in Vembu version 5.3. In this post, I’d like to go more in-depth on the Vembu Backup for Endpoints feature that was added in v5.3.

You can ensure data protection measures for free up to 10 endpoints of Windows/MAC against disaster and system failures.

  • File and Folder level backups of Windows & Mac endpoints
  • End to end encryption of backup data
  • Run backups continuously to ensure Continuous Data Protection

Here are some of the key features of Vembu Backup for Endpoints.

  • Files/Folder Backups – Backup individual files and folders from your Windows or MAC endpoints to the Vembu BDR Backup Server for free.
  • Flexible Scheduling Options – Vembu provides Continuous Data Protection for Backing up files and folders on a minute-by-minute, hourly, daily, or weekly basis.
  • Interruption-Free Backup – After an interruption, Vembu will intelligently resume the backup from where it left off.
  • Deleted File Retention – Retain any number of deleted files/folders based on it’s version count or the number of versions created within a time frame.
  • In-Built Compression & Encryption – All backups are compressed by the VembuHIVE file system & encrypted using AES-256 bit algorithm both in-flight and at rest.
  • Restore anywhere – Instantly restore the entire backup files/folders to the original location or an alternate location.
  • Bandwidth Throttling – This feature allows you to throttle the speed of the backup data transfer for a selected time, and helps in reducing the network traffic.
  • Email Notification – Enable email notifications to receive notifications about the current status of the configured backups (like success, failure, missed, etc.)
