CCBoot : Diskless Boot WinXP/Win2003/Vista/Win2008

A hard drive over a network and boots up an operating system from a
remotely located machine. CCBoot is the convergence of the rapidly emerging iSCSI protocol
with gPXE diskless boot technology.

Remote boot over iSCSI, or CCBoot, pushes the iSCSI technology even further, opening the door
to the exciting possibility of the diskless computer. CCBoot technology allows a diskless boot of
either Windows 2003, Windows Vista, or Windows 2008 from an iSCSI target machine remotely
located over a standard IP network.

CCBoot offers a seamless diskless boot. Eliminating the need for a local hard drive opens a wide
range of possibilities for network management. Using this configuration, the disks for many
network computers can be centrally managed, thereby facilitating backup, redundancy, and
dynamic allocation of valuable storage resources while at the same time reducing cost to the

Booting from iSCSI makes system administration considerably easier. Freeing a server of its boot
volume allows administrators to manage investments in their iSCSI SANs, attaining improved
data security, integrity and recovery, higher availability, quicker server deployment & repurposing,
and more efficient utilization of storage resources.
