Frequently Asked Questions about MongoDB Backup

Is any temporary disk space required for the backup job?


No, Comet streams information from the MongoDB server directly into our chunking engine without requiring any temporary disk space on the local PC.

Do I require any configuration changes on the MongoDB server to enable incremental backup?


No, Comet can generate an incremental backup job from any MongoDB server by streaming information from the MongoDB server directly into our chunking engine and calculating the set of incremental changes internally within Comet.

Can I set my own schedules for MongoDB backups?


Yes, Comet allows customizable backup scheduling. We also have 9 customizable retention range options to choose from and customizable email reporting.

Can I run multiple backups on the same machine at the same time?


Yes, you can run multiple backups on the same machine at the same time.

How does the pricing for the MongoDB booster work?


Files & Folders backup is Comet's base offering. After adding your protected devices, you can choose additional boosters, such as MongoDB. The cost of protecting a single device with one MongoDB backup is $2 for Files & Folder backup + $1 for the MongoDB booster = $3/device per month (in USD)
