systeMacs Press Release:
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California -July
9, 2002- systeMacs, the
computing experts, today announced the release of boxIT, a new
softwareproduct that allows Macintosh computers to have system
software and applications instantly installed from a remote computer,
in addition to unprecedented backup and restore functionality
With boxIT, a disk image of a
customized Mac with a properly configured operating system and
applications is copied to an external FireWire, USB or SCSI device.
This image can be deployed to an unlimited number of user computers
simultaneously. When problems occur, the user or IT support person
can restore this image in less than one hour. These capabilities
have never before been available to Macintosh users.
"systeMacs has been working
as consultants with enterprise-level
Macintosh users since 1986, and this is a product many of our
needed," said Ken Easterby, president and co-founder of
"boxIT adds a functionality to Mac-based networks that previously
only available in the PC world. It not only cuts total cost of
(TCO), but it will help our clients maintain their mission-critical
Using boxIT, system software
and applications can be installed on a Mac
or multiple Macs, in less than one hour! Under normal conditions,
process can take from three to five hours per computer. It is
that boxIT will initially be used by many companies to deploy
Mac OS X.
systeMacs clients expect significant
cost savings from boxIT not only
due to a drastic decrease in time spent installing new users
and upgrading existing ones, but also due to a much faster disaster
recovery process. boxIT has already been beta tested with several
systeMacs clients and has been met with enthusiastic reviews.
"Using the boxIT solution,
I was able to restore my failed OS X
E-commerce web server in 15 minutes," said Urundi Sanchez,
LiteCode Technologies. "Without the custom image from systeMacs
it would have taken me 10 hours or more to rebuild my server.
boxIT saved me thousands of dollars, and I would recommend it
to anyone who owns Macs."

established to provide complete
information technology solutions for companies that use Apple
