Are you attending VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas, NV?  If so, I invite you to add Vembu Technologies to your MUST SEE list of vendors. 

With so many vendors exhibiting at VMworld, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your busy schedule?  One of the companies on VMblog's list these last few years has been Vembu Technologies.  For some time now, I've had the pleasure of closely following and working with the team at Vembu Technologies as their product has grown and matured.  And next month, I look forward to meeting with them face-to-face once again at VMworld to find out what's new and see their backup, recovery, and replication solution up close and in action.
