Symantec tackles patchwork approach to patching

Symantec's roll-out of Ghost 8.0 Corporate Edition on Monday, October 27, offers patch application en-masse which a lot of people have been clamoring for in the Lounge lately. That's good. What's troubling though, is it can really suckup the ole bandwidth. The tool ID's which desktops have enough memory and hd space. Bandwidth consumption is addressed by a new feature called the Client Staging area which permits administrators to store an extra version of a user's software on a hard drive. If the active version is somehow damaged, the spare version can be called up without having to come across the network.
