We are excited to announce that Vembu BDRSuite v5.3 is now available for download.
Configuring & managing backups for File Server & Endpoints from a centralized console is one of the most requested features from our customers & partners. As this is one of the major features, we gathered inputs from the users through various surveys immediately after our 5.0 release and started working on this feature. After intensive testing, we are releasing this feature generally to all the users from BDRSuite v5.3.
We have also added new features and made significant improvements to BDRSuite based on customer feedback and modern data protection trends. Some of the most important features of v5.3 are Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Support, Active Directory Integration, and Backup Integrity Check on VMware ESXi Server.

New features in BDRSuite v5.1
Object Storage Backup Repository
BDRSuite v5.0 only supports block storage mediums as a destination to store your backup data. Now from v5.1, you can use object storages such as AWS S3 & S3 compatible storage solutions as a storage destination for the backup data. You can use the object storage buckets to store the primary backup data or use them as a destination for backup copy jobs. For example, you can keep the primary backup copy at your data center on block storage devices and keep another copy of your backup data on AWS S3.
The backup copy feature allows you to create a copy of your primary backup data and store it in a different backup repository. You can use the local storage mediums or object storage as a destination for the backup copy jobs. If the primary backup data is damaged, you can use the backup copy to recover the data. The backup copy supports all the recovery options as the primary backup.
BDR Cluster Deployment
Scaling your BDRSuite Backup Server is simple whenever it requires additional resources to handle growing workloads. You can install multiple instances of the BDRSuite Backup Servers and have them work together for load balancing and high availability instead of expanding the CPU and RAM resources of the same BDRSuite Backup Server.

Privacy is a right every citizen is entitled to wherever in the world one lives. Data speaks of an individual more than anything else he/she owns. Data, be it personal or professional is bound to a certain set of privacies.
When it comes to data the awareness regarding online fraud, data theft, password guessing, recording keystrokes and many other such data breaches is very limited.
In order to educate and create awareness about data and its privacy threats, January 28th is marked as the International Data Privacy Day.A little deeper dive to know more on the above mentioned data privacy issues and some tips, or more precisely the do’s and don’t with your data. Let’s roll in quickly to understand the recommendations to keep your personal data and its sensitive information protected.
The key factor is to have a proper firewall system installed. Making conscious choices on a Threat Intelligent software would be a good investment.
Control Over Privileges
The hierarchical system can be used to provide the right access to the system for the different users according to their needs. It is very important to limit the privilege of who can perform network-wide or further lesser system-wide actions using the Administrator rights.
Hackers usually use scripts and algorithms in a particular sequence until the passwords match by luck making the intruder capable of taking control over the data. Unique passwords with multiple combinations and basically giving a thought to set your password will be a sensible action.
Sensitive data which are to be transferred through LAN/WAN should be encrypted. As a result of any kind of attacks during transmission, the violator cannot read your information though having gained access to your data.
Always choose applications that comply with data privacy or security compliances such as GDPR, HIPPA, etc.
Implementing a Robust Backup Strategy
While having taken care of all these different security measures, the data is still vulnerable to loss and theft as hackers find some new way or the other using malware, viruses and what not. One simple way to be prepared for such breaches is to have a proper Backup and Disaster Recovery solution like the BDRSuite deployed.
BDRSuite is a comprehensive Backup and Disaster Recovery solution designed to protect your data across virtual (VMware, Hyper-V), physical (Windows, Linux, Mac), cloud workloads (AWS), and SaaS applications (Microsoft 365, Google Workspace) through its centralized web-based UI.
You can check the BDRSuite website to learn more about the product!
3-2-1 strategy of having the backup data stored locally, in an offsite location and on the cloud will make these attacks absolutely powerless. Anytime there is a loss or theft or any kind of threat, you can recover your data and get going with your business.

Following the release of Vembu BDR Suite v5.0, Eric Blum and Xavier Avrillier published articles on their blogs, ITSMdaily and vXav.fr respectively, about their experiences with the latest Vembu BDR Suite v5.0.

Xavier Avrillier, who is a VMware vExpert and the author of vXav.fr blog, has termed Vembu’s consolidated web-based management console as one of the big selling points of the product. “This new version is packed with valued added features that span from traditional on-premise enhancements to Cloud services backup support” , said Avrillier.
Eric Blum, who is the author of ITSMdialy blog, in his blog post highlights the adverse effect of the ongoing pandemic on the work culture of so many IT organizations and how important the Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace backup is. Shedding light on how the BDR Suite has evolved to a feature-rich product, the author opined that BDR Suite can now stand rival to the best enterprise backup products available in the market.
Blum then concluded by sharing his thoughts on the Where-it-left-off feature – “when our internet provider was having network problems this feature would save me a lot of time and also ensure that backups are completed in the backup window you expect to finish.”
Avrillier highlighted features like the Disk Rotation for backup repository, GFS Retention, Instant Boot Live Migration and much more.
Summing up the blog post, Avrillier states – “Putting in place a solid backup strategy is critical, especially in these days of Ransomware attacks popping up all over the place. You want to ensure that your data is safe and that you can recover should anything happen”.

New Features & Enhancements in v5.0
Hyper-V VM Replication
You can now replicate your Hyper-V VMs from one host to another. In the event of a disaster or system crash, you may simply failover your production workloads to the replica VMs and continue your company operations.
Instant Boot Live Migration
VMs instantly booted from the backup repository can be fully restored in the background without any downtime. This will help you instantly restore a production VM when it is down and start using it in production as the full VM is being restored in the background.
Parallel VM Processing
Vembu now supports parallel backup of multiple VMs/disks in a single host. You can customize the number of backup jobs and the number of VMs/disks in a single backup job that can run in parallel from the BDR Backup Server GUI.
Rotated Drives as Backup Repository
Vembu now supports setting up rotated drives as the primary backup repository. This will help you to use multiple external hard drives to store the backup data and swap them on a regular basis.
Optimized Backup with Where-it-left-off
BDR Suite 5.0 supports the Where-it-left-of feature, which enables the image-based backup data to run more efficiently even if there is network failure or other interruptions during backup. Whenever a backup restarts from an interruption, the backup will automatically start from where it left off during the previous schedule. This feature can greatly improve backup performance even when there are frequent network failures especially in WANs.
Synthetic Full Backup
Synthetic full backups are created in the backup repository by merging the full backup and all subsequent incremental backups in the backup repository itself, instead of running an additional full backup. It reduces the time and bandwidth usage over the network for creating multiple full backups in the backup repository.
GFS (Grandfather-Father-Son) Retention
BDR Suite 5.0 now supports GFS retention to create restore points on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis. GFS restore points are always tied to an Additional Full Backup or a Synthetic Full Backup.
Backup Job Template
Backup templates can be created using frequently used backup configuration settings or as per some predefined backup policies. You can utilize these templates to create new backup jobs quickly.
Multi-host Backup Support
BDR Suite 5.0 supports backup jobs with multiple hosts in a single job and you can always configure running backup for different hosts/VMs inside a job to run in parallel thus improving backup performance.
Application Item-level Recovery from web GUI
BDR Suite 5.0 supports item-level recovery for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, and AD from BDR Backup Server web GUI. Any restore point can be selected and individual items can be recovered within minutes.
