    AGAIN THIS IS IN THE BETA NOW. FINAL MAY DIFFER!

    What’s new:



    1. MS Windows Server 2008 support.

    2. Flexible licensing model based on two types of license:

    - Deployment licensing for workstation platforms.

    - Deployment licensing for server platforms.

    3. Fully automated deployment:

    - Wake-on-LAN. This feature boots up remote machines, even if they are not located in the same network, with Acronis Deploy Server.

    - Deployment scheduling enables flexible deployment plan and increases IT productivity.

    - Centralized management console provides the ability to create and manage deployment tasks.

    4. Standalone image deployment allows administrators to deploy systems, even if the network is not accessible.

    5. Custom deployment. Authorized end-users have the ability to self-deploy their systems by choosing a pre-configured deployment task from network boot menu.

    6. Disk/partition imaging/deployment.

    7. Preinstalled environment support (WinPE 2.0/BartPE):

    - Automatic deployment and scripts execution under PE.

    - PXE media builder for PE.

    8. Security:

    - MAC filtering.

    - Image password protection.

    - Boot menu password protects against unauthorized execution of the Acronis bootable components.

    9. Tutorials provide comprehensive explanations based on real-life scenarios.

    10. Fully compatible with ASD 2.0 and latest Acronis products. ASD 3.0 is able to deploy images created with ASD 2.0 and ATI Echo.

    Is that possible to add special key to access (example F12 button on keyboard) to Acronis Boot Menu for PXE deployment? It means after PC startup, it will load boot configuration/menu from Acronis Snap Deploy server and then display Acronis boot menu list after we pressed special key.

    Can we control Acronis boot progress to boot direct to windows automatically in specific times (default = 3 for example and this option can be edit by Acronis PXE configuration) if there is no action and no default boot configuration on menu list?

    May it support Linux/Unix for OS deployment (Ubuntu, Redhat, Fedora, FreeBSD, ...?
    It should be more helpful.

    Do you mean with the Universal Restore option? If you do they only restore MassStorage and HAL. Nic audio etc you always need to do yourself.

    But if you use Universal Imageing Untility http://www.uiu4you.com icw Snap Deploy you ARE TRULLY UNIVERSAL!!
