Client/Server Deployment

The provision of operating systems (OS deployment) is a critical process in the IT infrastructure. It enables the efficient installation, configuration and maintenance of operating systems in complex network environments. Not only client operating systems such as Windows 10 and Windows 11 can be deployed automatically, but also the latest server operating systems.

Here are some important aspects:

1. Why OS Deployment?

  • Time and cost savings: Automated provisioning saves time and resources.
  • Reduced downtime: Fast provisioning minimizes interruptions.
  • Error reduction: Manual errors are avoided.
  • Improved security: Consistent configurations and patches.
  • Standardization: Uniform operating systems across the organization.

2. Methods for operating system deployment:

  • PXE-initiated deployments: Computers can initialize an installation via the network, the pre-boot environment is loaded via the network.
  • USB stick: If PXE is not possible via the network, the pre-boot environment for the OS deployment can also be loaded via a storage medium.
  • Partition: A partition for the pre-boot environment is prepared here so that work can be carried out without PXE and without a USB stick.

3. Types of operating system deployment:

  • Scripted OS installation: Customize the OS installation dynamically, depending on the location and target audience.
  • Image: In training environments, for example, it can make sense to create a reference image and distribute it, which saves time if all computers are to look exactly the same.

4. What we can do for you:

  • Implementation: We provide you with comprehensive advice and implement an OS deployment directly on your premises.
  • Best practice: We have many years of experience in this field and can bring our best practice to you.
  • Migration: We support you with the migration of your operating systems.

The automation of operating system imaging and deployment is crucial to ensure efficient and reliable IT infrastructures. If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us!
