Excellent backup software

We have used a fair number of backup software, all with some challenges. With Comet we have no issues at all.

Pros

Backup servers are available for Windows and Linux. Installation and configuration is very easy. Setup and executing backup jobs works perfect. Restore also no problems. They make new versions very regular, so many new features over time.

Cons

Overal the product works great. For virtual machine backup we use different software. If at some point this could be integrated in Comet backup, that would be excellent!

Reasons for choosing Comet Backup

No alternatives were considered.

Reasons for switching to Comet Backup

We did have a maintenance contract with Ahsay. But then they decided that if you wanted to go to the latest version you had to buy it again. A company this unreliable is not a company we want to be in business with, so we switched to Comet.

Comet backup for a Cloud provider

We were looking for a backup application that should be able to store efficiently the backup jobs to a cloud storage without using local temporal space. After a few evaluations we came to Comet, has a good pricing model, it's easy to start with and we are a happy user for more than 2 years. We are running hundred of backup jobs each day, and a few restores each quarter (we are lucky), and we never had any issue caused by Comet Backup.

Pros

I was impressed by the ease of use of the server, how to deploy agents and how easy was to extract information from the server to report to our users how the backup was protecting their information. Also, every time we opened a case with Comet, response time and quality was top notch.

Cons

It doesn't integrate (yet) with change tracking with the hypervisor so all the virtual disk has to be read each time, and that it'd be nice to integrate with S3 protocol Object locks to hedge against potential ramsonware attacks. I know that they are on it on both things but still not available.

Reasons for switching to Comet Backup

Deduplication, Cost and vault storage compatibility

best online data backup platform

my overall experience with Comet Backup is that after trying their services, I can see why they were so highly recommended. They have a simple, easy to use and cost effective solution for data backup.

Pros

I have always been looking for a reliable back up storage on the cloud, that would be secure, fast and easy to use. I was looking for a piece of software that would allow me to back up my clients data, get the most out of the cloud and make sure that my company can grow and support more clients. Comet Backup offers a user-friendly platform designed to help you manage your data in the cloud, along with a reliable back up storage solution. The platform has a Windows version is available in 11 languages.

Cons

what I don't like is that the virtual machine backup is not done with cometbackup, it would be really nice if they thought to include that in their system

Good Backup solution

Overall really good for MSP customers.

Pros

The file backup part is really good. All the options for backup is really good. The features are a must. Work really smooth once its is setup

Cons

Storage vaults is bit confusing. Local vault and UNC file might have a problem connecting.

Simple and effective backup system. Perfect support.

The solution was great for solving problems that were occurring with our customers. Easy implementation, effective support, and attractive prices.

Pros

Clear pricing policy, one of the best value for money for MSP, efficient support and really safe solution.

Cons

Initially it may take some time to understand its concept, which in our opinion differs a little from traditional backup systems, but after a short time everything is working perfectly.
