Cloning a computer

  1. 1. Cloning a Computer By Matthew Moore
  2. 2. What is it? • Disk cloning is the process of copying the contents of one computer hard disk to another disk. • Unlike standard copying functions, disk cloning involves copying hidden and in-use files
  3. 3. Why do it? • Standardization: Managing standardized machines is a lot easier than individual ones. • Training labs: ensures that the user experience will be the same for all users.
  4. 4. Simple Steps with Cloning Software • Install all desired programs and files to a master computer • Use software to create an image of the master computer’s hard disk. • Clone the image to the other computers.
  5. 5. Advantages• A faulty computer can be wiped clean of data and restored from the untouched master image.• Do not have to waste time installing individual applications to new computers.• A comprehensive backup of operating systems and installed softwares
  6. 6. Disadvantages• Need to have a high number of the same hardware for the same image• Must have dedicated IT staff when dealing with more than just a few computers• Care must be given to ensure the master image is reliable and uncorrupted• Isnt appropriate for daily backups
  7. 7. Final • Cloning provides institutions and other large organizations to set up and mange their network of computers quickly and effectively, but care must be done to ensure that it functions properly
