Disk Imaging Software

By SPC_TCOL ·
I am looking for some new Disk imaging software for my labs.
I have around 200 computers that get re-imaged at least twice the year.
The software we are using right now takes a long time for this task.

So we are looking for something eaiser and faster to use.

Does someone has experience with some Disk Imaging software?

Often discussed

It's often discussed here at TR or on countless blogs and websites. Everyone has his/her opinion. I have heard good things about Easeus Disk Copy http://www.easeus.com/disk-copy/
Mainly because it is good and free.

What are you currently using and how do you perform the backups?

Me personally I swear by Acronis. I have been using Acronis for many years now. Usually very fast IMO, relaiable, easy to configure, etc. Plus I am just so comfortable with it. It hasn't always been a peasure to use at times, typically with RAID support in past.

Acronis has a Management console redesigned in Backup and Recovery 10. http://www.acronis.com/backup-recovery/advanced-server/
You can simply manage an entire army of backup agents deployed on your LAN. If you use Kaseya or something similar, it integrates perfectly...with a script.

What are you usingnow?

I have about 12 years experience with Symantec Ghost and have always found it to be fast and reliable. Right now I image from a server using PXE and it take about 5 minutes to deploy a 2GB compressed image.

Well this depends on what you are using now

I personally Prefer Acronis as stated above and for the same reasons but if that is what you are using I think that it's the best of Breed and your stuck with it.

In comparison to Symantec Ghost which is the other big Corporate Cloning Tool I think that Acronis is better.

Norton Ghost 14

Norton Save & Restore 2

I'll not relist the Acronis Site as they are already available.
