The BDR Server is the core component of the Vembu BDR Suite.

It can be deployed as:

  • Windows or Linux machine in both virtual or physical environments
  • VMware Virtual Appliance
  • Hyper-V Virtual Appliance

In this post I will go through the extremely simple and fast installation process on a Windows machine.

Before starting check the needed prerequisites, you can take a look at my previous post.

The current release of the DRS Suite can be downloaded from the official Vembu site.

Run VembuBDRSetup.exe.

Accept the license agreement.

Accept the default settings or select the check box to customize the configuration parameters related to:

  • PostGreSQL Server
  • Installation path
  • Storage repository
  • Console web access


At first access it’s necessary to specify a couple of settings:

  • Time Zone
  • Vembu BDR ID

After that, the web console opens.
