    Deep Freeze alternative (hardware) options


    Hello 10 forums!
    Title says it all, so I'll explain as good as I can, what it's going to be used for.

    I'm in the Board of Directors in a (non profit organization) E-Sport Society in the city I live in.
    We currently have Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Fornite during the week in the "E-Sports center" as we also call it.

    We have members down to the age of 8 years old, and the oldest is around 30, if not more.
    So we'd like a solution, where they won't be able to mess up a PC, and we have to spend X amount of time setting it all up again.
    We've thought about adding all the PC's to a domain, the biggest issue would be, that some of the members never really used a PC before, so just logging into their own Fortnite account, is a hurdle, so we'd prefer not to make a bunch of accounts when it's already an issue.

    So I've thought about something like Deep Freeze, and I've told there's actually a add in card you can use, that's called Reborn, that can do the same thing, and it's much faster than Deep Freeze, since it's dedicated hardware.

    I can't think of a good solution of the time, so I'm asking for advice for solutions that can solve these obstacles, as well as guidance in general, since not everyone wants that solution.
    I'm all up fro the domain and giving them a user each, so they can't mess things up, I'm just not sure if it's the right choice.

    Does any of you have ideas, solutions, or similar experiences you'd like to share?

    I've not heard of it.
    How much does it impact performance?

    Does not do any harm , so no harmfull changes of impact ..............works fine in Win10 also .
    Its rock-solid , install , test your software , anything you want , copy things you want to keep to other partition , reboot.............done , nothing happened , all changes you made in Shadow-mode are gone............

    I see.
    Well, Deep Freeze is more appealing, since you can manage it all from a phone or a server. The price for 30 licenses is not appealing up front, since it's over €1.700 and that's quite a lot in our opening year.
