Comet Server Roles 

Overview 

This section provides an overview of the optional Comet Server roles that can be deployed.

At a minimum you will always need one server with Auth Role enabled. This role provides:

  • Management of users & customers.
  • General configuration options.
  • Security and SSL management.
  • Remote configuration management of Comet Backup.
  • Branding workshop - allows creation of branded Comet Backup installers.
  • Provides direct-to-cloud backup functionality.

This optional role is required if you are providing your own storage, it's not required if you are only backing up to a cloud storage destination.

This role provides the following functions:

  • Efficiently span data across multiple vaults, local and Cloud-based vaults simultaneously.
  • Supports multiple storage types and operable on all common versions of Windows and Linux.

This optional role provides highly efficient, automated, multi-threaded replication that you can rely on.

This role provides the following functions:

  • One-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many replication
  • Full replication of user configuration and storage data

We highly recommend deploying a Constellation Role server if you are using replication as it provides the following benefits:

  • Ensures that redundant data is correctly handled across multiple storage locations.
  • Oversees all Comet Storage server and automatically purges unused storage buckets and performs general storage maintenance tasks.
