The primary benefit of CloneZilla Live is that it eliminates the need to set up a DRBL server ahead of time and the need for the computer being deployed to boot from a network. CloneZilla Live can be used to image or clone individual computers using a CD/DVD or USB flash drive. Though the image size is limited by the boot media’s storage capacity, this problem can be eliminated by using a network filesystem such as sshfs or samba.
CloneZilla Live is a small bootable GNU/Linux distribution for x86/amd64 (x86-64) based computers. CloneZilla SE (Server Edition) has been developed from 2004, and it is used to deploy many computers simultaneously. It is an extremely useful tool, however, it does have several limitations. In order to use it, you must first prepare a DRBL server AND the machine to be deployed must boot from a network (e.g. PXE/iPXE). To address these limitations, we have combined Debian Live with CloneZilla as CloneZilla Live, a software that can be used to easily image and clone individual machines.
