All private and public sector organisations (businesses, schools, federal/state/local
governments, etc.) face increasing challenges when configuring and deploying new
servers and workstations in a distributed environment. Having a deployment solution
that enables them to use a standard configuration for a new machine will significantly
decrease support expenses.
Acronis has a solution to address this need. Acronis® Snap Deploy® is a comprehensive
deployment solution that enables organisations to deploy new servers and workstations
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 servers and workstations.

Deployment in just a few steps:
1. Create a standard configuration image, including the operating system, applications,
and other settings
2. 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
3. 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
4. Follow wizard-driven GUI on management console to select a template or create a new
template for the deployment. The Acronis OS Deploy Server commences deployment
of the master image to the bare systems. No installation of the operating system or
applications is required – the image contains everything the system needs to run.
5. Using the additional option Acronis Universal Deploy the target system hardware is
adapted
