PING

PING

PING (Partimage Is Not Ghost) is a free, open source distribution that offers similar functionality to Symantec Ghost. It backs up and restores (clones) a hard disk. It is a live Linux ISO, which is based on the popular Linux From Scratch (LFS).

PING uses Partimage, the program which performs the backup and restore features.

PING can be booted directly from a CD/DVD, or integrated into a Remote Installation Server (PXE/RIS).
