By Virtualizing Its Backup Repository as a File System, Vembu Changes the Dynamics of Data Protection for Business Applications in a vSphere Environment

In this analysis, openBench Labs assesses the performance and functionality of the Vembu Backup & Disaster Recovery (BDR) host-level (a.k.a. agentless) data protection solution in a VMware vSphere HA Cluster. In a DR scenario, Vembu leverages the ability to restore a VM in any format, to provide an Instant-boot function, When Vembu Backup Server is installed on a server that is concurrently running Hyper-V, Vembu exports the datastores associated with a VM backup as Hyper-V disks and configures a VM to boot from the datastores.

Key Takeaways from This Paper:

  • Finished crash-consistent incremental agent-less backups in 18 minutes, while processing our base transaction load of 12 Outlook TPS
  • Restored a fully functional VM in less than 5 minutes as a Hyper-V VM capable of sustaining an
    indefinite load of 4 Outlook TPS
  • Recovered all user mailboxes as .pst files from a host-level agentless VM backup with no need to schedule a Windows Client backup initiated within the VM’s guest Windows OS
