Backup. Protect. Restore.

Benefits of Comet

Underlying Comet is our ‘Chunking’ technology providing powerful advantages for your backup operations.

Client-side deduplication

Comet has fast, bandwidth-efficient backups as deduplication is client-side, saving storage space.

Incremental forever

Your oldest backup can restore just as fast as your most recent. No need for differentials or delta-merging.

No full

After the first backup, you’ll never have to reupload the full file again.

Compressed and encrypted

During backup, transit and rest. The only time it is unencrypted is during a restore.

Backup Types

Disk Image

Protect entire disks and partitions on Windows for full system recovery. Restore your system to physical, VM or the cloud.

  • Backup directly to the cloud (Azure, AWS, etc)
  • No spool space required
  • Restore directly to devices/partitions ‘bare-metal recovery’
  • Restore as virtual disk files (.vmdk)
