Nomad™ – Windows Software Deployment

Nomad Enterprise “Why is there never enough bandwidth?“

Dell, Angie Stahl

NOMAD provides a cost effective, low-touch method for an enterprise’s IT staff to efficiently manage software deployment across the organization.

What’s stopping you transforming your IT landscape? Conventional methods of software deployment are costly, complex and manual. With 1E you can achieve huge savings across your SCCM infrastructure while actively improving your business’ performance.

NOMAD’s bandwidth throttling removes the competition between IT and business traffic, and its peer-to-peer delivery eliminates servers and complexity from the network. With NOMAD you can treat complex, distributed networks as simple and local, delivering transformative cost savings across the enterprise.

IT’S NOT MAGIC, JUST CLEVER.

KEY FEATURES

TIGHT INTEGRATION WITH SCCM

Nomad seamlessly integrates with, and builds on, the inherent security provided by SCCM, introducing no additional risk to PCs or the network. Its reliable automation means immediate distribution of software packages, system updates or OS upgrades to any number of PCs at any location at any time.

REVERSE QOS™ ONLY USES SPARE NETWORK CAPACITY

Intelligent bandwidth throttling ensures that Nomad only utilizes the network’s available capacity, so that business traffic is never compromised.

Not having to plan for available network bandwidth to each location minimizes the planning and deployment effort. Furthermore there is no need to consider future changes across the network as Nomad continually revaluates for optimal performance.

Application and Package content sizes are increasing all the time and network contention is a serious issue. With ConfigMgr and Nomad together the ConfigMgr administrators can safely assume that all distributions will never disrupt business traffic while making maximum use of available bandwidth. This is imperative when planning for Windows migrations.

PEER-TO-PEER DISTRIBUTION REMOVES THE NEED FOR SERVERS

The ConfigMgr client asks Nomad to retrieve all types of content from centralized DPs, thus removing all other distributed DP infrastructure. In larger environments it is not practical to manage more than 250 DP’s from a Primary Site, so a layer of Secondary Sites would be needed without Nomad.

Reducing server numbers directly reduces costs and time to deploy. In large environments, removal of a hierarchy level also makes replication and deployment speed of software updates and applications much faster.

SINGLE SITE DOWNLOAD (SSD)

Automated discovery of network topography enables administrators to treat complex, distributed networks as simple and local ensuring content is only ever downloaded once to a site regardless of the number of PCs.

Nomad also supports Local Multicast. Whether in large offices or branch environments, the ability to multicast in each subnet speeds up all deployments while not requiring any change in the core-networking infrastructure (as Enterprise-wide multicast requires.

FAST PEER-TO-PEER SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION WITH FANOUT™

For over a decade, 1E Nomad has helped many organizations of all sizes to increase the speed of ConfigMgr content distributions, but the FanOut and Single Site Download features improve on that impressive record.

FanOut™ significantly accelerates the distribution of SCCM content between Nomad peers. From rapidly deploying software updates to delivering enterprise-wide OS migrations in record time, distributing content with an automated many-to-many model ensures software distribution is achieved within hours rather than days.

APP-V SUPPORT OPTIMIZED FOR ALL CLIENTS

Nomad has built-in intelligence to optimize App-V delivery to all SCCM clients whether they are on fast or slow networks.

ENHANCED OSD CAPABILITIES

With Nomad Task Sequence steps available directly in the SCCM console, it is simple to integrate all of Nomad’s intelligence, even in the most complex OS build process.

When migrating to a new OS (e.g. Windows 8.1) or rebuilding the OS, all key scenarios must be automated. Otherwise the cost of managing exceptions can be prohibitive.

One of the most complex scenarios is bare-metal provisioning. This is required even in remote locations that have no servers or cannot share a server for ConfigMgr/WDS roles. Without a bare-metal capability businesses have to pay for factory image installation or on-site build engineers across all environments. This leads to significantly higher costs and longer timescales for Windows migration projects. With a combination of ConfigMgr and Nomad all build scenarios including bare-metal are automated so factory images or build engineers are not needed desk side.

PXE EVERYWHERE REMOVES THE NEED FOR DEDICATED PXE SERVERS

Bare metal build capability from peer systems enables the installation of an Operating System without needing servers, network configuration or administrative effort.

PRESERVE AND RESTORE USER DATA AND PERSONAL SETTINGS

Ensures automated, safe and reliable user-state migrations between Nomad peers during OS rebuilds and migrations, without requiring servers.

FULL WINPE SUPPORT

Nomad’s full capabilities are supported in WinPE to ensure OS images and drivers can be sourced from local Nomad peers, protecting the network and ensuring rapid OS migration.
