Save time and resources by provisioning hundreds of tablets, PCs or servers simultaneously. Businesses today face increasing challenges when it comes to configuring and deploying new PCs in a distributed, corporate environment. IT staff look for solutions that can quickly and efficiently deploy new systems that comply with established policies and can be managed from a central location under an environment where budgets are tight but service level improvements are expected. Having a deployment solution in place that enables businesses to create a number of standardized configurations can save costs.
Acronis® Snap Deploy® is a comprehensive deployment solution that enables organisations to deploy new PCs and servers quickly and easily. Using disk-imaging technology that creates an image of an entire hard disk drive, including the operating system and all applications. It is ideal for rapid bare-metal installations of PCs and servers.
If you support a large enterprise, an educational institution, or a government agency, you know that deploying new software and configurations to multiple systems is a complicated, time-consuming task. Acronis® Snap Deploy® is a complete, user-friendly solution that lets you provision all your workstations and servers like you are provisioning just one!
Fast and easy. Powered by the Acronis® AnyData Engine, this product is ideal for rapid bare-metal deployments to a large number of PCs or servers, as well as effortless on-going redeployment to the same hardware. Award-winning disk-imaging technology helps you create an exact image of any standard configuration you choose— - including the operating system, configuration, files, and all applications - and simultaneously deploy image to multiple machines in one easy step.
Everything you need. With Acronis® Snap Deploy®, you can redeploy an image to live Windows® machines, eliminating the need for manual booting of each individual system. You can also manage machine-specific configurations (including machine names, IP addresses, domain membership, and other settings). Acronis® Snap Deploy® will also take care of Windows® settings after deployment is complete.
Deployment in just a few steps:
Create a standard configuration image, including the operating system, applications, and other settings.
Create a bootable media diskette or CD, an ISO image, or RIS boot package or configure a Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) with Acronis® Snap Deploy® agents.
Boot the bare system you want to deploy with the bootable media, or PXE, enabling the bare systems to connect to the main deployment server.
Deployment server begins transfer of the standard configuration to the bare system. Systems are deployed when the transferred image is applied to the target system and the system is booted for the first time. No installation of the operating system or applications is required – the image contains everything the system needs to run.
Using the additional option Acronis Universal Deploy the target system hardware is adapted.
Features and Benefits
Ease-of-Use: A simple and intuitive wizard-driven user interface saves time and reduces mistakes.
Multiple Operating System Support: Deploy to Windows® PCs, Windows® tablets, Windows® servers, and Linux.
High-Speed Dispatch: Rapidly deploy a single image to multiple machines via unicast or multicast from a centralized management console.
Deploy to Live Machines: Start deployment to live Windows machines (and avoid having to boot each machine from network or CD manually).
Dissimilar Hardware Support: Provision the same image to dissimilar hardware, even to different machines! Acronis® Universal Deploy technology injects the appropriate settings, HAL and drivers necessary for successful initial booting.
Flexible Deployment Methods: Leverage manual, automatic, user-initiated, and scheduled deployment modes. You can deploy a standalone image even if your system is not on a network. Additionally, Wake-On-LAN automatically boots your PCs for deployment, ensuring that you always stay on schedule.
Machine-Specific Configurations: Customize configurations and assign individual settings to each tablet, PC, or server. Monitor the status and pre-configure new machines identified by their MAC address.
Flexible Boot Options: Boot your bare metal machines from customisable media using CD, DVD or flash drive, or from self-configurable Acronis® PXE Server with network boot.
Flexible Licensing: Choose between multiple licensing options to maximize your investment! There is a per-machine option for deploying a specific system multiple times. There is also a per-deployment option should you want to deploy multiple systems just once.
