Comet can be installed using a pre-packed installer for both Windows and Linux, requiring little preparation, and no third-party software dependencies. Just run the installer, update some simple configuration, and you're ready to go.
We're here for you. Our unique support model, with technical staff in New Zealand and the United Kingdom means that we have skilled support staff covering the globe in your local time zone. We offer smart, efficient support and priority support for when you need it.
Many backup companies struggle with legacy code and software architecture. Not us. Both Comet Server, and Comet Backup have been designed from the ground up to be lightweight and efficient, utilizing the latest technology and programming methods to create a uniquely light, stable and efficient solution.
Both Comet Server and Comet Backup can be re-branded to include your company name, logo and key messaging. In fact, you can even rename Comet completely. We stay behind the scenes and help facilitate your superior backup solution, that your customers will thank you for.
Comet stores data differently, so it can also restore data differently. All files are stored as multiple "chunks". As data changes within files, we update the chunk, keeping the old ones for retention purposes. Restores are fast (limited only by your connection and disk speed!), as the chunks are ready to go together without any client-side processing.
Comet supports seamless storage across multiple storage locations and types. Data can span across local on-disk or SAN storage, Cloud (Amazon, Google, etc), SFTP, local copy + more. Coming soon - automatically spill data over to the cloud when your on-disk storage becomes full.
Comet is a "native" installer built in C++. There are no cumbersome external libraries such as Java or .Net required to run it.
The installer can be re-branded to meet your requirements, and supports the addition of your own code signing certificate.
Full support for all major releases of Windows and Linux.
32 or 64 bit support. We recommend Windows 7 or newer.
Support for MacOS, iOS & Android coming very soon.
We've designed Comet for you and your customers. Beginners can get up and running with file-level backups in minutes. Power users can get the most out of Comet with advanced features like data-stream, MySQL backup and MS-SQL backup.
