Announcing Acronis Snap Deploy 5: Now Twice as Fast as Before for Provisioning, Configuring and Reimaging Workstations and Servers
“At my primary school, every two to three weeks we reimage about 300 workstations, ranging from Windows XP to Windows 7, so students can effectively work during labs or class,” says Tom Lawson, Network Manager with a UK-based primary school. “Without Acronis Snap Deploy, it would take me a week to reinstall everything on a single computer. Now I can configure 300 computers in three days, increasing my productivity and allowing me to focus on supporting students. This is also important for my students with special needs, whose computers stay exactly the same after each reimaging, diminishing confusion and letting them focus more on learning each day.”
