  • Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Management Console is an administrative tool for remote access to Acronis servers and Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Management Agent.

    When disconnected from the Acronis components, the console allows only for the installation of product components on remote machines and for the creation of bootable media.

  • Acronis Snap Deploy 5 OS Deploy Server (the deployment server) is a component that performs centralized hardware-independent deployment through the network with the help of Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Agents.
  • Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Management Agent is a component that takes an image of the master system in the Windows environment under the administrator’s control through Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Management Console.
  • Acronis PXE Server allows booting machines over the network into Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Agent, Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Master Image Creator, or Windows Preinstallation Environment. The machines must support PXE. Using Acronis PXE Server considerably reduces the time required for booting multiple machines as compared to using bootable media. It also eliminates the need to have a technician onsite to install the bootable media into the system that must be booted.
  • Acronis Wake-on-LAN Proxy is a component that enables Acronis Snap Deploy 5 OS Deploy Server to wake up the target machines located in another subnet.
  • Acronis Snap Deploy 5 License Server is a component that tracks licenses of Acronis products.

  • Acronis Snap Deploy 5 Master Image Creator is a bootable, locally controlled component that creates an image of the master system.

  • Acronis System Report is a bootable component that collects information about the machine and saves this information to a locally-attached USB drive.
