Description

Clonezilla is GPL software for system deployment. It’s similar to Symantec Ghost or Acronis True Image. It supports a variety of file system types, including that of GNU/Linux, Mac OS, MS Windows, FreeBSD, Minix and VMWare ESX. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore. While Clonezilla SE is for massive deployment, this BoF is intended for system administrators at Opensource Bridge to meet and discuss any ideas and issues about Clonezilla they might have.

    Biography

    Steven Shiau is a researcher at the NCHC (National Center for High-performance Computing), Taiwan. While there he wrote parallel and distributed program to simulate plasma. This program formed the basic idea for the future development of the free software DRBL (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux), a rapid deployment software for distributed PC cluster and education environment. With Kuo-Lien Huang, Ceasar Sun, Jazz Wang and Thomas Tsai, he developed another free software “Clonezilla”, an open source clone system. He is the project leader of the file system imaging tool “Partclone”. He is also one of GParted developers, maintaining GParted live. The project DRBL won first place in ‘Public Sector Applications’ category at the Free Software Contest in France in 2007. He is the division leader of Software Technology Division at NCHC now, the Chair of the Board of Directors, SLAT (Software Liberty Association of Taiwan), and spends most of his time in the development of DRBL, Clonezilla and promoting the use of free software and high-performance computing.
