If you're a network administrator or someone whose job is to quickly install a clean new version of the operating system on multiple computers from a network at the same time, then you should really consider giving a try to the AOMEI Image Deploy Free application. This cool app makes it really easy to deploy system images to multiple computers at once, therefore you will no longer have to install new operating systems on single computers from a network, one at a time. The same goes for restoring a computer to a clean state using a system image – with AOMEI Image Deploy Free, this also can be done in batches, to multiple workstations at once. Therefore, the task that would otherwise take many hours to any sysadmin can now be performed in a couple of minutes, and in an easy manner, with a small number of clicks, especially since this tool comes with an easy-to-use, wizard interface. AOMEI Image Deploy Free manages to remain quite easy to use despite the fact that it packs numerous cool additional features. For example, its real-time process monitor function is capable of showing the IP addresses of clients and their restoring status in a convenient list.
The installation from the system image can include more than just the barenaked operating system. Drivers, applications, updates and patches can also be included within the system image. This makes the fact that the image file should be a system image or a disk image created by AOMEI Backupper matter quite less. This also means that AOMEI Image Deploy Free is a really handy image deployment solution that will help quickly deploy and install a disk/system image to large numbers of identical PCs and servers, so that all of them get to be configured identically, and have the same apps installed on them.
I also like a lot about this tool the fact it will automatically assign different computer names and IP addresses for the client computers where the system image is deployed, avoiding any conflicts and other problems. Furthermore, this impressive utility can install system images even to multiple client computers even with different hardware, without any issues, thanks to its so-called “Universal Restore” technique.
To sum it all up, as you can see, AOMEI Image Deploy Free is a really handy and effective tool and best of all, it's also free.
