Acronis releases cloud-based automated offering Snap Deploy 4

Centrally managed platform that takes a snapshot of an entire operating system

By CBR Staff Writer

Acronis, a provider of cloud-based easy-to-use disaster recovery and data protection offerings, has released Acronis Snap Deploy 4, the latest version of Acronis’ automated solution for deployment of data and systems to multiple PCs, virtual machines and servers.

Using the new deployment platform, IT administrators and lab managers within organisations, such as educational institutions and training departments, will be able to copy exact images of data and systems, including the operating system, applications and files, and move it from one device to another.

Acronis Snap Deploy 4 enables IT departments to standardise and control their infrastructure, including PCs, servers and operating systems, by deploying a standard master image, and reduce costs and time by automating deployment, the company said.

Based on Acronis’ patented disk imaging technology, the centrally managed new offering takes a snapshot of an entire operating system, its applications and data, creating a master image that can be installed onto multiple machines.

The new platform includes the ability to customise configuration settings on a per-machine basis, such as setting a unique IP address, and enhanced support for virtual machines with the ability to deploy directly from VHD files.

It also offers hands-free mass deployment with centralised management and automation, hardware-independent images, and flexible scheduling options, said the company.
