  • Comet Backup debuts Disk Image backups and recovery through their white-label backup software solutions, Comet Enterprise and CometGo!
  • Customers can protect entire disks and partitions on Windows for full system recovery. Users can restore their system to either a physical machine, VM or the cloud.

Christchurch, New Zealand – August 26, 2020 – Comet Backup announced their flagship products — Comet Enterprise and CometGo! — will now offer Disk Image backup functionality in the latest quarterly version of their software released this week.

This allows service providers the capability to protect entire disks and partitions on Windows for full system ‘bare-metal’ recovery with the ability to restore systems to a physical machine, VM or the cloud.

“We’re confident this new functionality will allow our customers to easily protect their customers from disaster while providing the full recovery options needed for everyday business operation,” Mason Giles, Chief Technology Officer at Comet Backup shares. “This is really the next evolution of our backup capability and builds upon our feedback and learnings from service providers that currently utilise our existing Files and Folders backup service.”

With many businesses transitioning to flexible working environments, Comet accelerated their development roadmap to deliver this capability. “Service providers are increasingly seeing demand from their customers for total system protection and rapid recovery time objective to ensure business continuity and minimal down time. Our new Disk Image functionality not only fills this requirement for service providers but also provides new areas of potential revenue growth for them,” says Josh Flores, Comet Backup’s General Manager.

Disk Image backup is further enhanced with existing Comet benefits such as secure AES-256-CTR encryption during backup, transit and at rest. Efficiency is provided through client-side deduplication and the ability to backup directly from client devices to storage, or leverage a number of popular cloud storage providers such as AWS, Backblaze B2 or Wasabi Cloud Storage.

The combination of these benefits coupled with Disk Image functionality provides a modern, robust backup platform for service providers and IT professionals seeking to ensure the protection of their customers.
