FOG…a free computer cloning solution!

Filed under: General Blogging — dtrask @ 2:50 pm


Chuck Syperski is working on an Open Source project that aims to make computer image deployment for companies and organizations very easy.  Version 0.12 of FOG includes many new features including printer
management, inventory, client side registration, reporting, and a
client updater, just to name a few.  I have yet to try it, but the screenshots look very intriguing.  According to Chuck…It is a ghost-like imaging solution that can be used to image Windows PCs in large network environments.   It does everything without boot disks/CDs, it also includes some pretty advanced features like multicast support, a client side service that does printer management, hostname changes, AD registration, user tracking and more.  The FOG management suite does imaging plus hardware inventory, AV scan, memory testing, and disk wiping.  It is all web based and can run on Fedora or Ubuntu.  Sounds pretty cool!  I’m looking forward to trying it!
