What’s New in BDRSuite v5.6.0 – Single console for Windows/Linux Backup and Recovery

Vembu has recently announced their new BDRSuite v5.6.0 with new features and enhancements and this post covers more details. They offer multiple Cloud-based backup and recovery solutions which helps customers to simplify their backup architecture. If you are using it already then it’s time for the upgrade to v5.6.0. BDRSuite is a comprehensive Backup & DR solution that protects business-critical data across your Virtual, Physical, Cloud Workloads, and SaaS Applications. With BDRSuite, you can configure backup for your diverse IT infrastructure from a centralized, easy-to-use & clutter-free web console.

BDRSuite is a Comprehensive Backup & Disaster Recovery Software designed to protect data across Data Center/Private Cloud (VMware, Hyper-V, Windows, Linux, Applications & Databases), Public Cloud (AWS), SaaS (Microsoft 365, Google Workspace), and Endpoints (Windows, Mac).

BDRSuite v5.6.0 – The latest version brings several enhancements and features to make backup and disaster recovery management more effortless than ever before


New Features in BDRSuite v5.6.0

Active Directory (AD) Integration for Host Addition
BDRSuite now offers support for importing hosts (Windows, Linux, Mac) from AD/LDAP servers, enabling administrators to add hosts quickly and easily to the list of data sources for backup.

Centralized Backup Management for Mac
Backup for Endpoints – Mac, can now be directly configured and managed from the backup server itself. This eliminates the need for separate clients and simplifies the management process for administrators.

Backup Templates for Files/Folders Backup in Servers & Endpoints
By utilizing backup templates, configuring backups becomes effortless, ultimately saving valuable time and mitigating the risk of potential errors. Initially, backup templates were available for VMware, Hyper-V, and Microsoft Windows (Disk Image) backups. However, with this recent release, backup templates are now also applicable for Files & Folders Backup on Servers and Endpoints.

Multi-tenancy for File Servers & Endpoints
The latest release now includes multi-tenancy support for File Servers and Endpoints, extending the capability that was previously available for other products. This feature enables greater flexibility and customization, allowing administrators & Service Providers to tailor the BDRSuite to their specific needs for easier management.

Disk-Image Backup from Linux BDRSuite Backup Server

Disk-Image Backup for Microsoft Windows can now be directly configured and managed from the Linux backup server itself. This eliminates the need for separate clients like in previous versions of Linux backup servers and simplifies the management process for administrators.

Import Hosts using CSV
In the previous version, importing hosts through a CSV file was previously available for Endpoints. The latest version now allows for the same feature to be used for importing Windows and Linux Servers. This automates the bulk host addition process & simplifies host management, making it fast and efficient.
