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.

Mozilla News

  • WebExtensions in Firefox 48
  • Mozilla's WebExtensions API Is In Good Shape For Firefox 48
    Mozilla has announced that for Firefox 48 their WebExtensions API is considered to be in a stable state. They encourage developers looking to develop browser add-ons to begin using this new API. WebExtensions is an API for implementing new browser add-ons/extensions that makes it easier to port to/from other browsers, is compatible with Firefox's Electroloysis, and should be easier to work with than the current APIs. In particular, Google designed portions of the WebExtensions API around Google's Blink extension API.
  • Mozilla a Step Closer to Thunderbird Decision
    The good news is that the folks at Mozilla seem to be determined to find Thunderbird a good home where it will be able to grow and find newfound success. This isn’t surprising. As Surman pointed out in his post, the project is quite popular among those associated with the foundation — but that popularity is also contributing to the problem Mozilla has with keeping the project in-house.
