Get the systems deployment solution to fulfill your software distribution needs, with the Dell KACE K2000 Deployment Appliance. This systems deployment appliance gives you the systems deployment tools you need to ensure fast, efficient provisioning:

Simplify image creation and maintenance
Hardware independent imaging, K-imaging and fully integrated native imaging for Windows and Mac operating systems help reduce image management tasks and capture and storage costs.

Automate driver management
Automatically download the latest Windows® drivers by computer model, while the driver harvesting tool and hardware inventory make working with other drivers easy.

Utilize a centralized deployment library
Ease storing of deployment assets in one central, manageable, secure deployment library.

Streamline pre- and post-installation tasks
Automate all systems deployment tasks (e.g., RAID and BIOS configuration, application installation and your own scripts) with customizable pre- and post-deployment tasks.

Speed up deployments with multicasting
Send the same bits of deployment data simultaneously to multiple devices to greatly increase speed and reliability of large-scale deployments as well as reduce network bandwidth.

Improve reliability and efficiency of deployments with powerful task engine
Task engine controls the order of deployment tasks, handles reboots seamlessly and ensures that the K2000 server is updated in real time, enabling true “lights off” deployment.

Perform remote system repair and recovery
Repair and recover remote systems with native Windows and Mac tools—including native imaging tools.

Track deployments with full reporting
Ease systems deployment and appliance administration with integrated reporting.

Perform Windows user state migration
Centrally capture, store and deploy user-specific Windows settings and files, enforce compliance by excluding files by type and location, and enable single-step offline migration.

Enable remote site management
Deploy disk images, operating systems, drivers and applications at remote sites without dedicated on-site hardware or staff.

Fulfill inventory assessment
Scan, collect and assess detailed hardware inventories on targeted systems.

Provision deployment assets network-wide
Provision deployment assets over the network (even bare-metal machines, i.e., those without any operating system and software) with network boot architecture.

Expand image storage capabilities
Allow the K2000 to grow with your needs by adding Network File System Network Attached Storage.
