Network World has an interesting article on Software Streaming that caught my interest. It sounds like they are describing a product similar to Apple’s NetBoot, which I’ve Seen in action at CCC. The article however is very sparse on details – a lot of theory, but no actual how-to’s or off the shelf software to accomplish it.
I’ve seen similar concepts, like the formentioned Apple NetBoot, and LTSP for Linux clients, but haven’t seen this done since the windows 98 days for a Microsoft product. Searching revealed two major suppliers of this technology: Bootix (250 euros/license) and Qualsystem (99 euros/license).
