Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Supports Comet Backup’s New Disk Image Functionality

September 9, 2020

Boston/Christchurch – September 9, 2020 – Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announced full interoperability with Comet Backup’s newly-announced Disk Image backup functionality.

Together, the solution empowers service providers with the powerful capability to protect their customers’ 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 Wasabi users 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.

With many businesses transitioning to flexible working environments, Wasabi and Comet knew delivering this capability to users was an important next step. “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. Comet’s 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.

“Service providers are playing a critical role in their customers’ accelerated digital transformations as we’ve all had to embrace ‘working from everywhere,'” said David Friend, Wasabi’s CEO. “These newest storage, backup and recovery capabilities from Comet and Wasabi give our service providers a powerful offering to further cement their status as their customers’ trusted tech advisors at an incredibly critical time.” Disk Image backup is further enhanced with existing Wasabi and Comet solution partnership 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 Wasabi Hot 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.
