The aim of duplication is
to easily install a computer over a network by cloning a working
machine to a new machine (or many new machines). It uses parallel
technology from clustering products (ka
tools, Dolly and
Dolly+). These methods can duplicate
SCSI or IDE hard drives, storage devices and support multiple
fat...). This method
can be very useful when you want to install several machines at the
same time based on a well known installation content, but using as
little bandwidth as possible.
KA method you can quickly duplicate a
computer using a
desc file that describes
your partition table. KA only
duplicates the data on partitions. Therefore, if you have a
80 GB HDD disk, and only 10 GB left
on it, KA only copies 10 GB and
not the whole disk. Ka can clone
various GNU/Linux filesystems (
jfs), and rebuilds
modprobe.conf file so you can duplicate
to computers which have different hardware.
Dolly is used to clone the installation of one machine to (possibly many) other machines. It can distribute image files (even gnu-zipped), partitions or whole hard disk drives to other partitions or hard disk drives. As it forms a “virtual TCP ring” to distribute data, it works best with fast switched networks. For example, you can duplicate RAID 0 software on another computer.
