    Deploy Centre

    We got an update to the new version of the Ghost Solution Suite (v1.1) last week taking us up to Ghost Corp v8.3. Included in there was a Symantec badged version of Powerquest Deploy Centre.

    Now I used to use Drive Image when I worked for a computer mail order company that shall not be named because they're evil and it was good. However I never managed to play with Deploy Centre.

    How does it compare with Ghost Corp Edition and the Ghost console? Any good?

    Cheers,

    Norphy

    Re: Deploy Centre

    Until we moved over to RIS we used Deploy Centre exclusively ... we still do for a few banks of machines that will not netboot or seem to have a dislike for RIS.

    For quick "push it out" jobs I always preferred DeployCentre (the PowerCast part of it) but I was always left feeling that I was not making the most of it all ... I always found Ghost Corp Ed was a tad flaky at times and could just be downright annoying for stuff not working for no apparent reason (eg the dislike of the drivers for Dell SX270s)

    From what I have seen of the newer versions of Ghost it has taken the best bits of both and I have yet to hear of anyone really moaning .... but I am still sticking with RIS for most stuff atm.

    RIS is a pretty cool (and free) tool. Since coming to the school I have been amazed how annoying Ghost can be! PowerQuest DC is actually pretty good too and I have used that in the past, but want to move on from ghost and other solutions just using RIS instead.

    I'm amazed that people so are negative about Ghost! I find it to be an excellent product with a lot of things going for it. On the other hand I found RIS a PITA and was relieved when we got Ghost working to a satisfactory standard.
