The quickest - and easiest - way to create a diskless Windows OS. - with the addition of sanFly iSCSI target functionality, emBoot makes it easier for those evaluating netBoot/i or winBoot/i, as all needed components to implement iSCSI boot for Windows (2000, XP, 2003, Vista, and 2008) or Linux (SLES / RHEL / openSUSE) are now available from one vendor.
Free download - sanFly is available for download at no cost, but additional functionality can be unlocked by purchasing a license key. The unlicensed version functions as a simple iSCSI target, providing CHAP authentication, and LUNs that can be optionally provisioned to accommodate only the actual data required.
Create single, shared bootable images for multiple users - with or without individual client persistence.
The licensed version of sanFly offers additional modes of operation and functionality, including:
* Shared-persistent mode: allows usage of a shared read-only iSCSI target with multiple initiator access; individual initiator writes are tracked and cached by the sanFly iSCSI target. This supports the use of a single "master" iSCSI LUN with individual persistent write caches per client.
* Shared-nonpersistent mode: same as above, but the client write cache is discarded at (re)boot.
* Commit cache to master image: Any single client's write cache can be committed to the "master" for repurposing / patching / deployment purposes
