Imaging with Xpress Send & Clonezilla

Coming up in the newest version of Xpress Send we will be adding imaging support through Clonezilla.  Clonezilla is a great open source partition and disk imaging program that will image almost any file system.  Through the Xpress Send web interface you will be able to customize boot options to load Clonezilla.  You type in 6 simple pieces of information and you’re imaging computers in minutes!

The customized boot options that Xpress Send provides give you simple one-click options for restoring and creating images.  Your file server and share information is input into the XS web interface.  After you update the web interface Xpress Send will custom build a PXE Boot Menu and boot CD.

Your Xpress Send server acts as a PXE server.  When you boot your workstation it will contact the Xpress Send server and the server will send back the custom boot options.  You will also have an ISO with the same boot options that are available in PXE.  Using Tuxboot you can create a bootable USB disk from your ISO.
