What is Golden Image?

A Golden Image, also called a clone image, base image, or master image, is used as a template for your organization’s various virtual hardware and virtual machines. This virtual desktop infrastructure is a clone of the master disk drive from which all of your devices operate. Applying it across a suite of devices ensures uniform setup and reduces the risk of critical application failure.

At its core it’s the foundation of your virtual machines (VMs) and hardware. It streamlines processes and ease of use because mission critical applications are not dependent on the device but instead dependent on the server or network itself.

Golden Image Benefits

A golden image is at the center of an organization’s mobility management. Using this asset saves numerous hours and resources as it creates a consistent environment for your employees and any other end-users both on-premises and with remote desktop devices.

When an enterprise automatically loads their golden image to their VMs and devices, this helps prevent human error, which can often come with manual configuration.

How Peak Technologies Can Help

With Peak Technologies’ Managed Mobility services, we can help set up and configure your golden image so it can be deployed across VMs and devices throughout your enterprise. To help optimize your golden image, we must fully understand your end goal and exactly what you are trying to accomplish. We keep in mind from start to finish the concerns of maximum usability and maximum stability and security.

We develop a purpose-driven plan customized based on the needs and workflow of your specific business and enterprise. We do not add unnecessary applications and resources, ensuring that your golden image doesn’t become bloated and ultimately ineffective, which can often happen with what is commonly referred to as the “kitchen sink approach.” While creating your golden image, our team of IT professionals understand licensing requirements, hardware memory, hardware CPU, and all other aspects that will affect your end usability and stability.

Peak-Ryzex is now
Peak Technologies

The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization.  In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days. 

Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future.  We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc. 

For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981.  When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders.  But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
