Best approach for Ubuntu images and Fog Server

I am trying to come up with the fastest way to upload a Ubuntu image to a fog server and then push it out to multiple PC's on the domain.   The image will be changing regularly because it is in a lab environment for CompSci students so the quicker the better.  I am trying to avoid a bit by bit image transfer (dd) of the entire 80GB drive.  Any suggestions on the best way to handle this?  It seems like there is an issue because of the multiple partitions used in a linux install (swap,ext4).  And, I don't know if FOG is currently supporting ext4 partitions.  Any insight would be great.  Better to use something like Clonezilla?

Based on your environment, Clonezilla server is the better choice.
