Acronis Snap Deploy 3 for Rapid Deployment of PC Configurations Now Shipping

  • 01 May, 2008 16:30

<p><b>SYDNEY, Aust., May 1, 2008</b> — Acronis® Inc. (http://www.acronis.com.au), a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, today announced the general availability of Acronis Snap Deploy 3, which enables IT managers to quickly and easily configure and deploy multiple computers simultaneously.</p>
<p>Acronis Snap Deploy 3 provides a hassle-free experience for businesses adding new computers. Instead of configuring each individual machine and then installing the applications, customers use the software to quickly install a standard, identical image — including the operating system and all applications — on every machine.</p>
<p>"Since launching the beta of Acronis Snap Deploy 3 last month, we received praise for the time-saving, straightforward process it affords IT professionals," said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis. "Companies of all sizes can ensure that employees are up and running in minutes with a new system, rather than hours or days. Users find this product particularly useful in applications where system configurations are standardised, such as in the education and government markets, as well as for sales and general office applications."</p>
<p><b>About Acronis Snap Deploy 3</b></p>
<p>Image configurations created by Acronis Snap Deploy can be installed from an optical disk or multicast simultaneously to tens or hundreds of computers over a local area network. With the separately licensed Acronis Universal Deploy add-on, IT managers can configure new systems with different hardware and still use the original saved image. Device drivers and the Hardware Abstraction Layer can be automatically or manually selected as needed to ensure proper booting of the computer. The product is available in workstation and for server versions.</p>
<p><b>New features in Version 3 include:</b></p>
<p>· Wake-on-LAN allows remote boot of shut down computers even if they are not located in one network with Acronis Deploy Server;</p>
<p>· Deployment scheduling enables flexible deployment planning;</p>
<p>· A centralised management console provides the ability to create and manage deployment tasks from one location;</p>
<p>· Full Microsoft Windows Server 2008 support ensures compatibility with the latest Microsoft technologies;</p>
<p>· Flexible licensing for both workstations and servers;</p>
<p>· Custom deployment enables authorised end-users to self-deploy systems by choosing a pre-configured deployment task from the network boot menu;</p>
<p>· Preinstalled environment (PE) support (WinPE 2.0/BartPE) permits automatic deployment and script execution under PE, including a PXE media builder;</p>
<p>· Full security ensures MAC filtering, the ability to password-protect an image, and prevents unauthorised execution of the Acronis bootable components</p>
<p><b>Pricing and Availability</b></p>
<p>Acronis Snap Deploy 3 is available for AUD$24.99 for the desktop version and AUD$124.99 for the server version.
