Clonezilla is a free, open source partition and disk imaging/cloning program similar to Acronis True Image®. It saves and restores only used blocks in hard drive. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (Server Edition). It could be used to Image or clone GNU/Linux, MS windows, Intel-based Mac OS, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and Minix. In this talk we will speak about how to deal with backup as service with Clonezilla. We will describe the server side and client side for this kind of backup service. You can setup WebDAV either from Apache or OwnCloud as the storage server, or even use Amazon S3 as the image repository. For the client side, the pre-setting parameters of Clonezilla live will be presented.

Steven Shiau is a researcher at the NCHC (National Center for High-performance Computing), Taiwan. While there he wrote parallel and distributed program to simulate plasma. This program formed the basic idea for the future development of the free software DRBL (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux), a rapid deployment software for distributed PC cluster and education environment. With Kuo-Lien Huang, Ceasar Sun, Jazz Wang and Thomas Tsai, he developed another free software "Clonezilla", a cloning and imaging tool. He is the project leader of the file system imaging tool “Partclone”, and the maintainer of GParted live. The project DRBL won first place in ’Public Sector Applications’ category at the Free Software Contest in France in 2007. He is the deputy division leader of software development technology division at NCHC now, and spends most of his time in the development of DRBL, Clonezilla and promoting the use of free software and high-performance computing.
