Discovering Vembu BDR Suite - Free Edition

After my Review of Vembu BDR Suite i would like to watch news for the specific product. Today i would like to share that Vembu Technologies release a new free version of Vembu BDR Suite as v.3.7.0.

Vembu BDR Suite Free Edition can use it in differet scenarios.

Today most of the companies has multiple HYPERVISORS like Esxi and HYPER-V as Lab Enviroment for Test Servers. Maybe some of them must take it backup not so often. With one click in Free Edition you can have this protection without need to pay anything.

HYPER-V Host has a feature to Import a new Virtual Machine or Live Migration between 2 different HYPER-V Hosts.

As IT Pro i would like to know if the Virtual Machine that you want to transfer is compatible in the new HYPER-V Host. Especially if the Virtual Machine is a critical System in your Production environment or a huge File Server.

I don't want to start an Import or a Live Migration and in the middle of Migration get errors that must resolve it.

But how i know if the transfer will be done successful?
