In this, the eighth article in our series investigating the benefits of Vembu BDR for Virtualized Environments, we carry on examining Vembu’s migration capabilities. We all know that backing up your data is only one part of the equation. The ability to recover is the other, and arguably more important, side. This is where Vembu BDR really shines.

Again life is being kind to you, and once again you are sitting in your cube, monitoring your environment. OK, you know the score by now — playing Gorf! Well your wrong you’ve stated re-playing Donkey Kong after watching the movie Pixels at Steve’s Daughters birthday party. This is more fun as both you and Steve can now have a real points tally competition.  All is calm in the world and you are planning the next phases of the company cloud migration.
