So easy, a Caveman could do it.SmartDeploy is a major time saver when it comes to rolling out new workstations and ensuring consistency on those new workstations. There are several options you can use to deploy your image on new workstation, we us the USB thumb drive method and it could not be easier. You can take a band new PC, boot from your USB thumb drive and just sit back and wait. In just a few minutes you have a PC that is basically ready to deploy.
Awesome imaging softwareFantastic imaging product! I started using SmartDeploy recently to image the new PCs we are rolling out to replace thin clients. Each step is a quick and easy process. I like that I can start imaging a PC and work on something else while it runs. Support is also SUPER speedy and quick to reply to any questions I have. Overall very satisfied!
Questions & Answers
Deploying Applications? Updates?
I am testing out SmartDeploy. Can someone tell me how it works for packaging application updates and how that has worked out for you? Can windows updates be slip streamed into the builds?A
Great question! Most of our customers include Windows plus all common line of business applications in their master golden image. When it comes to updates, we recommend choosing and following an update schedule, typically quarterly, to ensure that your image stays up to date. This is quick and easy with SmartDeploy because A) you only have one hardware independent image to update instead of having a separate image for each hardware model you support, and B) your reference machine is a VM so you can just fire it up at your desk, install the updates, recapture, and you’re done. Longer term, we're working on new capabilities to deploy discrete applications and patches for additional flexibility. Stay tuned for updates on these new features.
