Originally developed by IT staff at Camosun College (Victoria BC, Canada), CamCast Computer Lab Imaging (CCCLI) is a system that uses Microsoft Virtual Hard drive (VHD) technology to rapidly clone drive images to multiple target clients while these targets are being used. Its intended use compliments Windows Deployment Services (WDS). VHDs can be deployed via BitTorrent, multicast, or direct unicast. BITs deployment may be implemented in future releases. This system was developed to ease student computer lab management. It is a replacement for other imagecast products like Symantec Ghost (tm). CCCLI is a functional system currently being used at Camosun College. Currently, it is roughly mid-to-late Alpha stage. It works, but it is site-specific, there is no installer, configuration and use is extremely technical, and the code-base needs a complete rewrite. Administration is via server-based PowerShell script. There is no GUI yet.
- Itteration of commands across multiple computers
- Script-based control of WDS image deployment
