SAN RAMON, CA, July 16, 2007 — Faronics is helping Linux administrators stay cool this summer
by announcing the release of the highly–anticipated Linux version of Deep Freeze, Faronics’ flagship
system consistency software. Organizations can now deploy Linux in their computing environments
with full confidence, as Deep Freeze will ensure users enjoy a clean and consistent Linux experience
—each and every time.
Deep Freeze Linux enables administrators to protect a workstation’s operating system and software
without restricting user access. With every system restart, Deep Freeze Linux resets the computer
to its original state—right down to the last byte. Computing environments are easier to manage,
expensive computer assets are kept running at 100% capacity, and workstations enjoy full immunity
from software misconfigurations. The ‘reboot–to–restore’ ability of Deep Freeze Linux does not
increase bootup times whatsoever and does not slow workstations down in any way.
“The release of Deep Freeze Linux definitely sets Faronics apart from the rest,” said Farid Ali, President
and CEO of Faronics. “We’re the only ones that have a system consistency solution that works across
the Windows, Mac, and Linux operating system, which is great news for administrators who want to
leverage the strengths of Linux with the ease of use that they have grown to love in Deep Freeze.”
A free, fully functional 30-day evaluation version of Deep Freeze Linux can be downloaded at
www.faronics.com for the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) distribution. Deep Freeze Linux
can also be remotely managed via command line, and offers a Stealth mode which allows Deep
Freeze Linux to run without user awareness.
Faronics delivers market-leading solutions that help manage, simplify, and secure complex IT
environments. Our products ensure 100% workstation availability, and have dramatically impacted
the day-to-day lives of thousands of information technology professionals. Fueled by a customercentric focus, Faronics’ technology innovations benefit educational institutions, healthcare facilities,
libraries, government organizations and corporations.
