BDRSuite is a comprehensive backup solution that helps you safely backup your workloads regardless of where they are located, be it Linux, Windows, VMware, Hyper-V, or the cloud – you can do it.
I have already covered several articles on understanding system requirements, installing the software, and performing backups from different platforms. Many times, I pointed out the fact that you can use BDRSuite for free in your home-labs.
In this article, I will share the differences between the free and commercial versions of BDRSuite. Let’s get into it.
Different BDRSuite versions
BDRSuite is available in various versions, allowing you to switch between them to meet your changing needs. For example, when it comes to Hyper-V and VMware backup, BDRSuite offers five different versions, including Free, Standard Essentials, Standard, Enterprise Essentials, and Enterprise Edition.
There are two editions available, Free and Standard, for Windows, AWS, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and Endpoints in BDRSuite.
