PowerQuest Gives IS Professionals Greater Customization of Deployment Process with WinImage VF Editor

OREM, Utah - July 23, 2001 - PowerQuestŪ Corporation, a provider of proven solutions for storage management, is including in its recently announced PowerQuest PowerDeploy Suite™ a valuable tool which will allow IS professionals to customize the deployment of personal computers in an enterprise. The VF Editor (Virtual Floppy Editor) is one of the components of PowerQuest DeployCenter™ and was developed in conjunction with WinImage, a software development company in France.

VF Editor allows users to create, edit or view a Virtual Floppy Disk (VFD) image file without ever using a real floppy disk. “With PowerQuest's Virtual Floppy technology, the IS professional no longer has to physically visit each client computer in order to deploy an image,” explained Anne Vincenti, senior director of product management at PowerQuest. “With Virtual Floppy it is now possible to remotely deploy a PowerQuest image file to multiple workstations simultaneously."

VF Editor is one of the many tools in PowerQuest DeployCenter that allow IS professionals to customize system upgrades to the exact needs of their enterprises.

“PowerQuest recognized the capabilities of WinImage technology to help many of its customers,” said Gilles Vollant, WinImage. “PowerQuest and WinImage teamed together to create VF Editor and incorporate this technology into the PowerQuest PowerDeploy Suite.” For more information about WinImage, visit
