Specops Deploy

Specops Deploy simplifies the installation of operating systems, software, and applications in your Microsoft Active Directory environment. Extending the functionality of Group Policy, the solution lets you target any number of computer objects within Active Directory. Use Specops Deploy to save user state during installation, manage local user settings, or capture operating system images.

Automate OS deployment

Specops Deploy removes time-consuming manual tasks and improves IT efficiency through a simplified software deployment process. Whether you are installing applications on multiple devices, or upgrading your computers to a new operating system, it is the key to ensuring your time is well spent. Specops Deploy uses existing technologies such as Active Directory, Group Policy, Windows Deployment Services (WDS), Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK), and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). The solution simplifies deployment by adding an integrated administration interface to these components.

Deploy and manage applications

Specops Deploy leverages your Active Directory infrastructure and creates a powerful application distribution platform with granular and dynamic targeting of machines. You can deploy a variety of application types, including Windows Installer, Windows Installer Patch, App-V, Legacy (.exe, .bat, .cmd), and Windows Store applications. Schedule software deployments and get detailed feedback about the progress, success, or failure of the software deployment process. Specops Deploy uses Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) for package downloads which ensures the best possible performance over slow or unreliable network links.

Real-time deployment feedback

Specops Deploy keeps you informed of what is going on with your deployments. Get feedback on your computer deployments, and the status of your application installations in real-time. The deployment feedback interface can be used to view details about the target PC, and the installation log.
