System integrators, Insight Investments, selected Paragon’s Deployment Manager as a reliable and scalable software to simplify the imaging process of tens of thousands of laptops for use in educational institutions across the country.
“About 70 percent of our business is with K-12 school districts as well as universities,” said Jay Johnson, vice president of operations at Insight Investments. “Each district has 10 to 45 schools. They come to us to purchase refurbished laptops in bulk. The schools send us a copy of the image they want duplicated onto their machines; a typical image includes the operating system, applications and 50 to 60 gigabytes of data. Before implementing Paragon’s Deployment Manager, the process was tedious requiring the removal of each laptop’s hard drive for imaging; now we can reimage the machines without disassembling them and connecting the hard drive to a duplicator.”
Paragon Software’s Deployment Manager is a powerful deployment solution for servers, workstations, laptops, and tablets, enabling the deployment of a master image to thousands of systems simultaneously, multicast, or manually to individual machines, unicast. One key feature of the software is its ability to deploy the same image to machines with completely different hardware, which significantly simplifies the deployment project. Furthermore, it offers pre- and post-deploy configuration options, a scripting engine for automated and remote operation, and customizable Linux and WinPE-based boot media.
“Needing to simplify our laptop deployment process, we looked at all leading deployment solutions and decided to go with Paragon’s Deployment Manager,” said project manager Calvin Yeung. “Having worked with Paragon Software in the past, I knew they would be a great partner for our project. Their technology has been proven to meet the most demanding requirements. Their technical support team always follows through and is very responsive.”
“We are excited to welcome Insight Investments to the Paragon family,” said Tom Fedro. “Deployment Manager is the perfect solution for any system integrator or IT department that needs to deploy images quickly, efficiently and in mass.”
