Organizations Using FOG

  • Senior Developer

    Hey all,

    I realize many of you use fog, especially schools and such, for the speed and ability all at the low low price of FREE.

    So we, the development team, would like get a listing of Organizations using FOG if you’d all be willing.

    If possible, can you provide:

    Organization Name:

    Location (Optional)

    Approximate Number of systems:

    How long:

    Add to this, if you want to be listed publicly on the WIKI, please provide a Logo you’d want used for this.

    Thank you,

    Organization Name: Tribunal Regional Eleitoral do Paraná
    Location: Paraná - Brazil
    Approximate Number of systems: about 2500 registered hosts and 158 different locations
    How long: since early 2018

    Tribunal Regional Eleitoral do Paraná, a.k.a. TRE-PR, is the government body responsible for the electoral process (election, electronic ballot box, tabulation of results, etc.)

    We’re proud to post here because at this very date, we concluded our implementation of FOG in our entire state (Paraná), wich means:

    • a central location at our state capital (Curitiba), with our main server, and about 500 hosts
    • 157 remote locations in the entire state of Paraná, each one with about 5 to 40 hosts, totaling about 2500 hosts, each one with a Storage Node.

    So, hurray and thanks for all the efforts of the development team and your support!

    @adukes40 It will be a year next month that we started out with a test instance. Honestly it has been less headaches than our old solution ever was!


  • @dclark Awesome white paper! If I could upvote it 20 times, I would.

  • @tom-elliott Tried it as images - I can email it to you in pdf format if you would like. Just let me know if/where.

  • @dclark Checking in from Milford School District. I heard you guys switched over to FOG. :)

    @dclark mind retrying the upload?

  • Here is the basic white paper on how it helped the district during a tough budget year and ended up being one of the better finds we have made within the IT department.

  • @dclark Please do share with the community. This is an excellent way to contribute to the fog project. Also, it’s always refreshing and nice to hear positive stories about FOG.

  • @george1421 We also have a White Paper I wrote about our initial integration of FOG if you are interested - PM an email address if you would like.

  • @george1421 That’s a tough question. One thing I have been toying with is some Active Directory integration as far as comparison between FOG hosts and AD hosts. I currently have a framework in PHP to pull records from both and do a daily comparison. I use this to both find hosts that don’t have the FOG client installed for whatever reason, or possibly a client that has broke and also find hosts that have gotten deleted from FOG and not AD or vice-versa. It helps to keep both the FOG host records and AD cleaner and keep clutter to a minimum. If FOG could be directly integrated that when you delete a host you have a choice of also deleting it from AD if it exists. I don’t know if that is something that the community would use or if it would be more of a one-off type of feature, maybe an optional plug-in.

    Greener? - I have to say as it stands it has changed things for us dramatically already! We used to average at least 2500 machines left on all the time, now with the shutdown features available in FOG we have it down under 100 most nights/weekends which are mostly machines that need to be on (HVAC controllers, etc…).
