Clonezilla is an open source, free software solution for disk imaging and cloning. For system administrators, if massive or unattended deployment is required, Clonezilla is one of the choices. It supports a variety of file system types, including that of GNU/Linux, Mac OS, MS Windows, FreeBSD, Minix, and VMWare ESX. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore. While Clonezilla SE is for massive deployment. In this workshop, we will introduce basic and advanced usage of Clonezilla. The audience will learn, for example, how to image a disk, restore an image, create unattended recovery Clonezilla live, and massively creating bootable USB flash drives on a single machine.
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 cloning and imaging system. 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 is the division leader of software development technology division at NCHC now, the Chair of the Board of Directors, SLAT (Software Liberty Association of Taiwan) from 2011, and spends most of his time in the development of DRBL, Clonezilla and promoting the use of free software and high-performance computing.
