Pros
The ability to self-host the server out of a docker container and scale it in our existing compute resources (Kubernetes) is an excellent option that we take advantage of.
The ability to white label the software, and run our own infrastructure has been fantastic.
My overall experience with Comet Backup is that after trying their services, I can see why they were so highly recommended. They have a simple, easy to use and cost effective solution for data backup.
Cons
Storage vaults is bit confusing. Local vault and UNC file might have a problem connecting.
The scheduling part and performance when using the Comet Server as storage destination are some of the parts where we struggle the most with.
The interface is a little confuse, paths to the options are not directly.

Great Backup software for MSP or Small Business

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience from the Onboarding Video Call to getting it all setup and running has been great. Any questions or issues have been taken care of quickly, and I can have the peace of mind that stuff is safe.

Pros

We got this software as a solution for our MSP business. It has all of the features that you need backup client's equipment without breaking the bank.

Cons

There are some parts to it that are confusing in the initial scheduling of the backups, but once you do it a few times it gets better.

Great backup good price

Reviewed 3 months ago

The support team has been great and will even schedule a zoom to help you sort out your issue, they keep adding features and functionality so it just keep getting better, I feel like there are better solutions on the market but not at the price point.

Pros

Central cloud backup Server with options to and onsite backup servers too. Linux option for the backup server reduces our cost. No cost to run the backup server only cost per client device. Support for most types of storage. DAS, NAS, S3 and more.

Cons

Restores can be slower then some competitors, no option to live mount the data found in some of the competition. Storage locking can be a challenge.

Review Cloud Web

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall it's between OK and good. Hopefully there will be big updates to smooth out the ease-of-use.

Pros

The pricing, the featureset and the scheduling of tasks.

Cons

The Server back-end, sometimes there are weird errors backing up restored VM's, sometimes slow performance, no instant disaster recovery from the data.

Comet after a year.

Reviewed 4 months ago

So far, so good. It seems to be reliable for the most part. Would like some more in depth reporting and monitoring features, but for the price, it's been very good value.

Pros

Quite easy to set up, inexpensive pricing.

Cons

Need to be able to back up MS365 data without relying on a dedicated endpoint at the client end. We can't use it for MS365 backups without that feature and are using another backup tool for that side of backups.

Attractively priced backup solution for service providers

Reviewed 8 months ago
Pros

Product is very easy to use. Wasabi cloud storage is fast, cheap, and fully integrated, requiring zero setup. No issues installing on a wide variety of machines and OSes. Does not pester users; console provides comprehensive overview of status across clients and backup loads.

Cons

No Google Workspace backup. Costs for backing up Microsoft 365 are out of line with otherwise very reasonable pricing for backup software. Would like to be able to support older versions of Windows Server, because we all have those old servers sitting around somewhere!There are some issues to beware of regarding multiple jobs backing up to a single repository. If a job doesn't complete, you could end up with a locked repository that keeps other jobs from running.
