"Great backup software"

Comments: Overal experience is great. Much less problems as with the backup software we used before. Still, it could be better, but the Comet team is very actively developing, so I assume it get's better and better.

Pros: The software is small, brandable and easy to use. Backup is fast and reliable.

Cons: The software is not as feature rich yet as some competitors. It's relatively new software and it has frequent updates. Not all backup types are available yet, but they are adding more and more over time.

"Outstanding customer service for outstanding software!"

Comments: Comet makes offering backup services to my clients so incredibly easy. Comet's support team is just completely amazing, my last interaction with support sold me on Comet for life - I've been in IT professionally for 4 years now and have worked with support teams from ISPs to Medical Software companies, and no one even comes close to how fantastic Comet's support team is.

Pros: Account-wide deduplication and compression make storage footprint much smaller and backups much quicker. User interface is clean and easy to use. Administration side of things is packed with incredibly useful features and options. I can customize policies to fit the software for any of my clients, whether they're more techy and prefer to do things themselves or a company that prefers totally managed IT services.

Cons: Linux support is very lacking - I can't use Comet to backup any of my Linux servers to the extent of less-than-a-day disaster recovery. More thorough branding options for the backup client could be nice.

"Hestronic Comet"

Comments: Never had real issues. had a issues once where the app crashed and crashed but support helped me out with that and solved the issue.

Pros: Easy to deploy, we have our own version of Comet backup for our company (Hestronic BV). Small app with lots of features and webbased!

Cons: The app is sometimes slow in starting/reacting. Maybe depending on the various systems but overall I find the app is a bit slow on server systems.

"Awesome Backup for MSPs"

Comments: We have Comet install on a digital ocean server. Customers are managed from this and backed up directly to S3.

Pros: Very easy to use and setup. Runs on Linux. Low resources.

Cons: Interface needs some maturity but it is getting there.
