CCBoot allows a diskless boot of Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 2008 from an iSCSI target machine remotely located over a standard IP network. It's also known as network boot or LAN boot. Diskless boot makes it possible for computers to be operated without a local disk. The diskless computer is connected to a hard drive over a network and boots up an operating system from a remotely located machine. CCBoot is the convergence of the rapidly emerging iSCSI protocol with PXE diskless boot technology. Thus it's also called PXE boot. CCBoot supports uploading boot image to the PXE boot server and save with VMDK or VHD format.
It reduces power and cooling requirements, accelerates deployments, upgrades, and server repurposing, reduces complexity and risk, improves critical system availability, and implements enhanced Disaster Recovery solutions.
