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, free software cloning and imaging program. He is the project leader of the file system imaging tool “Partclone”, and the maintainer of GParted live. The project DRBL won first place in ‘Public Sector Applications’ category at the Free Software Contest in France in 2007. He was the Chair of the Board of Directors, SLAT (Software Liberty Association of Taiwan) from 2011 to 2015, and spends most of his time in the development of DRBL, Clonezilla and promoting the use of free software and high-performance computing.

* Hacking Clonezilla!

Clonezilla is popular for system deployment. However, there are some limitations. E.g. the destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one, the image can not be explored, etc. So any workarounds for them? Besides, are there any tips available to save system administrator's time? In this talk we will describe and demonstrate the workarounds about breaking the limitations and the tips to save time in system administration.
