Dell Software today
announced the latest release of its flagship Dell KACE K2000 Deployment
Appliance to further automate, accelerate and simplify OS and
application migrations while dramatically reducing the complexity of
large-scale system deployments. The new Dell
KACE K2000 v3.6 features advanced multicasting capabilities and a
new task engine that makes it much easier and faster to capture and
deploy system images across a range of tablets, laptops, desktops and
Growing device diversity across distributed IT environments has added
yet another layer of complexity to the task of deploying and managing
multiple systems. To ensure the highest levels of security and user
productivity, organizations must ensure that all systems are configured,
updated and patched with the latest applications and operating systems.
For many companies still scrambling to move off Microsoft Windows XP
before the April end-of-support deadline, there's an increased sense of
urgency to ease the management of systems imaging.
With the new Dell KACE K2000 v3.6, organizations can clear major
migration roadblocks while shifting system deployments into high gear
with advanced capabilities that accelerate migrations and optimize
system lifecycle management. Unlike software-only solutions that can be
complicated to set up and manage, Dell KACE integrates critical systems
deployment functionality into an easy-to-deploy physical or virtual
appliance that produces fast time to value.
"Dell KACE continues to add new functionality to its award-winning
systems management appliances to elevate IT efficiency, endpoint
security and workforce productivity," says David Kloba, general manager
of Endpoint Systems Management for Dell Software. "With the latest
release of our Dell KACE K2000 Deployment Appliance, we offer a smarter
approach to systems imaging that will help customers successfully move
off Windows XP and be better prepared to handle large-scale deployments
across multiple devices and operating systems."
Adding Intelligence and Automation for Smarter Systems Imaging
With the new Dell KACE K2000 v3.6 appliance, customers can more readily
create core images and then layer on top the unique drivers, updates,
applications, configurations and user settings that turn a basic systems
image into a viable user experience. Systems deployment enhancements
