Vembu Backup for Microsoft Azure VM
Comprehensive Backup and Recovery Solution for Microsoft Azure VMs
Vembu BDR Suite provides backup and disaster recovery solution for the IT administrators running their workloads on Microsoft Azure VMs. It helps IT administrators to securely backup the Azure VMs to other regions or to other public clouds or to their data center with RTO and RPO less than 15 minutes and minimal administration effort.
Backup Azure VMs to the same Regions
Backup Azure VMs by deploying Vembu BDR backup server on the same region. So, the Azure VM backup data will be stored on the same region for quick recoveries during any OS corruption or system failure. Optionally, you can either replicate the backed up data to your local data center or other Azure regions or other public clouds.
Backup Azure VMs to other Regions
Vembu helps to set up the BDR backup server on other Azure Regions and you can backup the Azure VMs to the BDR backup server deployed on other regions over the WAN. So, if anything happens to your original VMs, you can restore those VMs on other Azure Regions.
Backup Azure VMs to other Public Clouds
The BDR backup server can be deployed on other public clouds and backup the Azure VMs to other public clouds over WAN.
Backup Azure VMs to your Data Center
Backing up Azure VMs to your local data center is now made easy by Vembu. IT Admins can deploy BDR backup server on their local data center and install Vembu ImageBackup agent on each Azure VMs to backup them to their local data center.
〉 How it works
Vembu BDR backup server needs to be installed on a Windows Azure VMs on the same region or other region or other public cloud or the local data center and it should be assigned with a public DNS/IP address if you would like to backup the Azure VMs over WAN. Then, the Vembu ImageBackup or NetworkBackup agent needs to be installed on each VM and then these VMs will be backed to the BDR backup server over LAN or WAN.
