Frequently Asked Questions About Comet-Hosted

Why do I need a management server console to run backups?


Comet runs on a client-server model. Comet's management console, called the Comet Server, is required to manage user accounts, as well as configure backup and device settings

To get started with Comet Backup, your first step is to select and set up a Comet Server, either Self-Hosted or Comet-Hosted, to register devices to be backed up.

Where is the Comet-Hosted management server console located?


The Comet-Hosted Server is hosted on a private AWS cloud account. There are four AWS regions where the Comet Server can be hosted: US West, US East, EU Frankfurt, and EU London.

However, the Comet-Hosted Server does not store any backups, so this does not limit the storage location.

Customers can back up to on-prem storage or to any bucket region available with their S3-compatible cloud storage.

Do I need my own storage? What are my storage options with Comet-Hosted?


With Comet, you choose where your data is stored. With Comet-Hosted you can backup to:

  • Comet Storage, a bundled Wasabi storage offering
  • Any S3-compatible cloud storage provider (see a full list of options here)

How many backups can it run? How does it scale with numerous users?


All backup and restore functions are carried out by the Comet Backup client.

Since the bulk of the backup and restore operations happen client-side, the Comet Server is freed up to accommodate a huge number of users and up to several thousand devices per Server instance.

Do I need more than one Comet-Hosted management server console?


No, most users only need one Comet-Hosted Server instance to manage their users, devices, and backups. For individual use cases and management needs, please book a call with our Sales team or email us to discuss your unique requirements.
