With Clonezilla, Install Once and Clone Forever

Filed under

HowTos

Linux installation in 2012 is pretty simple – answer a few questions, then click Start and wait. But what if you could eliminate a lot of the waiting? That’s the promise of Clonezilla Server Edition, which can help you install servers with less effort, and the same, or better, results.

Clonezilla is GPL-licensed software that allows you to do bare-metal backup and recovery, or just use an image previously saved to clone it on other computers. Two types of Clonezilla are available: Clonezilla Live and Clonezilla Server Edition. The live CD is suitable for single-machine backup and restore. Clonezilla SE lets you clone or install many computers simultaneously. It saves and restores only used blocks on the hard disk, which increases cloning efficiency.

In this article I’ll show you how to set up Clonezilla SE on a CentOS 6.2 server and start cloning a server.

However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
