Data protection solutions provider Acronis announced today the availability of Acronis Snap Deploy 5 for up to two times faster system deployment and provision.
According to its media statement, Snap Deploy 5 increases IT, worker and student productivity by allowing educational institutions, corporate training centres, and any organisation responsible for large enterprise deployments, to rapidly refresh workstations and provision mass deployment on devices.
With Snap Deploy 5, IT can refresh workstations and devices twice as fast, returning them to their standard configuration or deploy updates to thousands of machines as fast as they could provision one system. This ensures employees, students and other users can work from devices free of viruses, downloads or spyware attracted by a previous user.
Acronis Snap Deploy 5 also creates an exact system image of any standard configuration that an organisation chooses and deploys the image to multiple PCs and servers. Through a high-performance dispatch and central administration point, the product provisions rapid bare-metal initial deployments to many workstations and servers, and is ideal for on-going deployment to the same or different hardware in education, training, and lab environments.
Additionally, with its Acronis Universal Deploy feature, the product empowers IT managers to provision hundreds of workstations or servers, regardless of the architecture, as fast as they can provision just one.
The disk imaging technology for Acronis Snap Deploy 5 is powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine and creates an exact disk image of any standard configuration - the operating system, files and all applications - and simultaneously deploys the image to multiple machines in one easy step.
Acronis Snap Deploy also automatically manages machine-specific configurations. Fueled by more than 100 patents, the Acronis AnyData Engine powers all Acronis new generation data protection products, allowing IT managers to use one or more products, or add on additional products based on their specific needs.
This new version of Acronis Snap Deploy is also now compatible with Windows 8.1 operating system, and the Microsoft Surface tablet.
