Acronis Snap Deploy

I'm thinking of using Acorns Snap Deploy for deploying images worldwide. I'll create the images at corporate and then make then=m averrable on a shared drive to pull down to the sites. Other than the images what do I need to supply the site with so that they can be deployed. A boot disk or can I create a bootable image for a DVD?

You will need a bootable image which can connect the share and restore the image from that share.
If the hardware is dissimilar you will need to use Universal Restore.

Personally I would use different approach. Deploy is good when you do a single time deploy to many PCs in one network. It will work well.
If you are going to perform deploy worldwide from a single place - you should think about the possible network problems.
In this case I would create a backup to DVD and send this DVD to remote site where a local admin could simply restore the image from DVD. Sure the image must be from your Master PC. This would be faster.
Or you configure Snap Deploy separately at each site and do deploys there by connecting deployment server.

Each machine requires a license @ $25 each each server requires a license @ $121 each.
Why when you have WDS (included in every server) and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (free)

Yeah, I'm not talking about WDS or licensing I'm talking about Acronis Snap Deploy and what I need in addition to the 'image' to deploy.
