Workstation Provisioning

The Issue:

Imagine, what it would be like if a large car maker manufactured every automobile to individual specifications. It would be incredibly difficult to repair and maintain them in any sort of organized fashion. This same concept applies to workstations. In the modern office, it is essential to be able to “stamp out” new computers that have some sort of uniformity to them. As much as we would like them to be uniform, there is also a need to customize workstations for individuals or departments. Therefore, you need a series of tools in place to properly provision and manage workstations.


The Solution:

ETS works with our clients to help match your needs with the most appropriate solution. Our preferred method of workstation provisioning is utilizing a combination of Microsoft's Windows Deployment Services (WDS) and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). This includes Microsoft's latest release System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager. 


WDS allows administrators to provision Windows-based computers quickly and in a uniform manner, utilizing disk-imaging technologies formally built on Remote Installation Services (RIS).


SCCM allows a great deal of configuration options including inventory management, application pushing, and device management.
