PowerQuest DeployCenter Library Delivers Cost-Effective Windows PC Deployment, Migration and Retirement

Family of complementary tools integrates with popular centralized frameworks for enhanced Windows system deployments and upgrades

OREM, Utah – July 21, 2003 – PowerQuest® Corporation, a provider of storage lifecycle automation to businesses worldwide, announces PowerQuest DeployCenter® Library, a powerful family of imaging-based deployment and systems management tools that complement existing management frameworks with Windows® deployment, migration and PC retirement. Enterprises of all sizes can benefit from the accelerated and automated Windows deployments and migrations provided by PowerQuest DeployCenter Library, resulting in reduced cost and complexity in overall systems management.

PowerQuest DeployCenter Library combines deployment, migration, system refresh and secure data disposal into a single offering to fit existing enterprise IT infrastructures. This family of complementary tools provides an integrated solution for managing the entire lifecycle of a company’s computers from introduction into the IT environment to secure system retirement.

“Without DeployCenter and PowerQuest’s deployment technology we would have to visit every workstation to boot each machine with a normal floppy,” says Marco Bruurs, technology consultant for Getronics. “PowerQuest’s technology lets us do what we want at the computer without having to physically be there. It enables us to automate a lot of the processes and eliminate the time and need to visit each workstation.”

PowerQuest DeployCenter Library includes PowerQuest DeployCenter™ 5.5, the latest version of its toolset to help corporations rapidly deploy images, including operating systems and applications, giving IT administrators greater flexibility and control in deploying and upgrading Windows workstations. PowerQuest DeployCenter Library also includes PowerQuest Deploy Toolkit™, a solution that leverages Microsoft’s Windows Pre-Installation Environment (WinPE) to create an accelerated and simplified deployment process with the convenience of operating in a Windows 32-bit environment.

PowerQuest DeployCenter Library also features PowerQuest PowerMigration DNA™, a powerful migration option giving users the most comprehensive and flexible solution for the management, movement and maintenance of a PC’s DNA – the unique configurations, settings, preferences and data of each PC.

In addition, PowerQuest DeployCenter Library includes DataGone™, PowerQuest’s secure system deletion technology, which allows customers to securely erase hard disks. DataGone meets Department of Defense (DoD) and National Security Agency (NSA) standards to effectively prevent future hard disk users from recovering sensitive, confidential files.

PowerQuest DeployCenter Library provides a lower-cost alternative to PowerQuest V2i Builder™ 2.0, which was introduced earlier this year. V2i Builder includes the components of PowerQuest DeployCenter Library with the addition of a centralized management console to automate deployment and systems management tasks and plain-language action sets to simplify many common tasks by dynamically determining what actions to take based on policy and history associated with users and PCs.

PowerQuest DeployCenter Library gives IT administrators flexibility to integrate with existing systems management solutions such as Microsoft® SMS, Tivoli® and LANDesk™.

Pricing and Availability
PowerQuest DeployCenter Library is available in English only for an MSRP of U.S. $237.50 for a 10-seat license.

PowerQuest DeployCenter Library is a new product that contains elements that were part of PowerQuest DeployCenter, but it contains several additional tools. Customers who have PowerQuest DeployCenter 5.5 are entitled to discounts when purchasing PowerQuest DeployCenter Library. Although PowerQuest DeployCenter will no longer be sold as a standalone product, the technology within PowerQuest DeployCenter will continue to be updated within PowerQuest DeployCenter Library.
