Total Software Deployment: managed software deployment for your corporate network.
Total Software Deployment makes deploying software on any number of computers a blast. Software inventory management, automatic network scanning, and concurrent deployment of multiple types of installation packages make TSD a clear winner among remote deployment tools.
Unlike the competition, this tool supports advanced concurrent deployment, allowing you to install multiple packages on multiple computers at the same time. You can specify how many computers and how many packages per computer can be installed at any moment. Once you have made up your mind, you can start deploying in just one click.
You can also remotely uninstall software from one or multiple computers. The remote uninstall tool supports packages deployed using Total Software Deployment or installed in any other way, allowing network administrators to control which software is required on the network and which must be uninstalled.
Total Software Deployment enables organization-wide visibility across network computers, maintaining a comprehensive list of software installed on all computers in your corporate network.
TSD automatically scans your network computers to build inventory lists. Computers and servers on your corporate network can be scanned without permanently installed agents; all you need is the administrator’s password. Scanned data will be categorized and organized automatically to build a comprehensive inventory of software installed on your local area network.
Ever wish for a system more flexible than Microsoft® deployment tools? Being restricted to deploying MSI packages is no fun. Total Software Deployment supports all types of installers including MSI and all popular third-party installers, enabling fully automated, silent deployment of just about any package.
Not all installation packages are created equal. Some have pre-configured options for silent setup, while others may come with no support for automated deployment at all. TSD offers the choice of as many as three different methods of creating an automated deployment package for your network, allowing you to remotely deploy software products that were never meant to be.
Use the Assistant to quickly identify computers with outdated products, you can maintain deployment history, and do much more!
Network software distribution and maintenance made easy. Automate the routine by letting Total Software Deployment scan your network, build a list of software installed on your computers, and perform automated deployment tasks remotely from a centralized location.
Learn which software is installed on your network computers without leaving your chair! Just make sure your computers are using a modern version of Windows (XP or higher), and have your administrative password ready.
Just specify what you’re about to scan, and Total Software Deployment will start working immediately. With automated network discovery, it’ll automatically locate all valid nodes within the specified IP range, identify computers in the workgroup, and display the domain structure. You can simply scan with the default settings and your administrative password or specify logins and passwords for individual devices or groups. Get set, get ready, go!
With today’s wide bandwidth and powerful processors there’s no need to wait for one task to finish before launching another. TSD employs a truly concurrent, multi-threaded approach to network scanning, running as many tasks in parallel as your network allows. Thanks to that, the scan can be completed in a matter of minutes even if you have a fairly large network.
"Which version of Software X are my computers using, and how can I update it?"
This is the most common question we’re asked, and this is exactly the job we’ve built TSD to handle. Managed software updates could not have been made easier! Total Software Deployment will scan your network computers and build a comprehensive report detailing which software is installed on each computer. Updating outdated versions is as easy as selecting them in the list and clicking "Update".
Software storage in Total Software Deployment supports single-file and complex installers. The storage is highly configurable, allowing you to edit basic properties, such as version number, language, or supported OS architecture and enabling common and per-product deployment policies specifying which add-ons, updates, or hotfixes should be deployed with the main application.
View everything you need and nothing else! TSD offers flexible configuration options for displaying information about your network nodes. You can see whether or not the computer is online, view its network name and IP address, check which Windows version it's running, and choose how much – or how little – information you’d like to be displayed.
Total Software Deployment offers convenient searching and filtering to help you quickly locate installed applications, identify your deployment goals, and assign tasks and priorities.
Create silent deployment packages in just a few clicks! TSD will automatically determine the type of installer and use the correct command line string to remotely deploy applications without the need for user interaction. This method is great for automated software deployment of MS Office® in your local network.
Do you have an installer requiring user input no matter what? In fact, a substantial number of products don’t have native support for automated deployment. Not a problem if you’re using Total Software Deployment! Just build a macro for such installation packages, pre-recording all the clicks and jumping through all the hoops. And it’s easy to disable any unwanted actions without re-recording the entire scenario.
If nothing else helps, we can make a system snapshot to deploy some really tough packages. System snapshot is the ultimate tool that helps deploying products that absolutely won’t budge to any standard deployment method.
Snapshot deployment works by tracking changes made to files and Windows Registry settings during an app install. These changes are recorded, distilled, and incorporated into a custom package that can be deployed on other computers remotely. This is the lowest-level deployment method available. Use with great care!
Create lists of packages to deploy and set your deployment goals just once, deploy to multiple computers in one click afterwards. Unlike built-in tools, Total Software Deployment does not restrict you to just MSI packages. Instead, the tool allows you to deploy packages built with a wide range of installer types, including those with limited or no support for remote installation.
Just start the deployment, sit back, and watch the process. TSD monitors every step, allowing you to easily identify any deployment issues.
With our software deployment tool, your remote software installations will not disturb the end users with windows or dialogs and won’t interrupt their workflow.
The remote uninstallation tool can successfully uninstall software based on the list of discovered packages, allowing network administrators to control what should be installed on the network and what shouldn’t. The Quick Search function allows to quickly locate packages in the list. Once the unwanted packages are identified, uninstalling them is a matter of just a few clicks.
The new MSI uninstallation module allows network administrators to uninstall MSI packages over the network. Uninstallation is completely automated with no need for building complex scripts and without the need to enter command-line parameters. The MSI in question will be automatically discovered and uninstalled in just a few clicks – either from one or from many computers on your network. Importantly, Total Software Deployment does not require access to the original MSI package in order to uninstall it. The list of supported installer types will be expanded in the future updates.
Total Software Deployment can scan the entire local area network discovering software installed on end-user computers and obtaining comprehensive information about it. Total Software Deployment supports group deployment, maintenance and uninstallation of software packages on multiple network computers. After successful deployment or remote software uninstallation, the tool can automatically rescan computers to maintain an up-to-date list of installed packages.
Now you can schedule various tasks with maximum flexibility at exactly the time and frequency that suits you.
Friends, the middle of July is far behind us, and that means the final Friday of the month is coming...
