The release of Ghost Solution Suite 3.0 is big news.

SMS Tech Solutions is thrilled to announce the release of Symantec's Ghost Solutions Suite 3.0. "Ghost has always been a popular product with our customers. There had not been an upgrade for years, and it was even discontinued for a brief period. The fact that they have released a new version that works for the new versions of Microsoft, etc., is big news", said SMS Tech Solutions President Sally Shorb.

Ghost Solution Suite 3.0 is a long awaited major release that incorporates the best elements of Deployment Solution (DS) 6.9 and Ghost Solution Suite (GSS) 2.5. This powerful new integrated offering extends the capabilities for operating system deployment, configuration, PC "personality" migration, and software deployment across multiple hardware platforms and OS types, and scales easily from small business to large enterprise environments. With the latest Ghost binaries at its core, the release of GSS 3.0 signals a renewed commitment by Symantec to our loyal deployment and imaging customers around the world.

The previous GSS console reached its max efficiency at one hundred computers, making management of larger environments difficult. In contrast, the new console allows the management of thousands of computers in real time.

Ghost Solution Suite 3.0 has made a number of technological fixes and improvements based on numerous customer requests, including adding support for new operating systems and hardware. Some of the new general enhancements include: New OS and Hardware Support x Support for Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite x Updated hardware support (UEFI 32-bit and 64-bit) x Support for WinPE 5.1 pre-boot operating systems x Includes LinuxPE pre-boot environments (x86 and x64) – [Note: it is the same version as shipped with Deployment Solution 6.9 SP6] Updated SQL Database Support x Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2014 and SQL 2014 Express.
