Gone are the days of visiting machines with floppy disks and installing operating systems manually. As images get larger and the need for deployment (and re-deployment) increases, it is important to ensure you have the right tools to distribute these images and carry out these tasks. Microsoft’s Windows Deployment Services (WDS) has been designed to be the silver bullet in addressing these issues. The ability to deploy WIM files via pre-boot environments makes this free tool invaluable. This session gives you a foundation in WDS which you can leverage to deploy out-of-box images, directly from your Volume License media, or even customized images you’ve developed (from attending other deployment sessions). If you’re looking for a tool that will multi-cast at varying speeds due to your “unique” network infrastructure and you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a complex tool, this session on WDS is one you won’t want to miss.
