P2P image distribution



  • Hello!

    just a request if possible..

    Would it be possible to add P2P image deployment through out a network.
    Because of bandwidth limitations and speed concerns P2P would be crazy fast imaging!

    let me know what you think!

    thanks



  • You could also use multicast? It works great when imaging multiple computers at the same time.
    Also, in 1.3 you can designate separate storage servers or use a share on a SAN or NAS, so that might help as well.
    P2P distribution seems like a very unlikely feature. It would require many computers to have agents and copies of images, that's just not how it works, I'm afraid. I understand how it could be useful, but technically it cannot be implemented, imho.



  • My networking team disabled multicast at my locations network, p2p for some reason is enabled.

    And we are looking at some paid software's that implement a p2p image distribute.



  • Hi @Zep
    Maybe you can test EZIO which is made by me.

    EZIO is a filesystem distrubute software via BitTorrent.
    But EZIO still need some wrapper to work fine.
