OS imaging and deployment is an important part of IT administration, but this task can also become tedious and time-consuming. With the OS imaging and deployment feature in Desktop Central, you can automate the disk imaging and deployment process, saving you both time and effort, as well as eliminating possible errors from manual deployment of OSs, drivers, and configurations. Administrators can capture the images of different OS versions, customize the images for deployment, and deploy the images to a new system right from the Desktop Central console.
Automatically capture the image of a computer, whether it's live or shut down, using intelligent online and offline imaging techniques. Store the images in a centralized repository (network share) and perform OS deployment on the go.
Customize the captured images by creating and maintaining various deployment templates suitable for the different employee roles and departments within your organizations.
Deploy the image to any system in your network, irrespective of the hardware and vendor type. This cuts out the need to configure a new image for each make of hardware and vendor type during OS deployment.
This is a secure deployment technique that lets you deploy images by creating a unique authentication passcode. Boot the computer in the network and enter the passcode to deploy the OS on any computer in your network.
Define the settings for the target computer and configure the post deployment activities to automatically install any applications or EXEs in the target computer after successful OS deployment.
You're probably already familiar with Desktop Central's various features, including patch management, asset management, software deployment, mobile device management, configurations, and remote control for day-to-day desktop management. Now you can automate OS deployment as well, with access to both OS deployment and desktop management tools on a single console.
