MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Oct. 13, 2009 – KACE™, the leading systems management appliance company, today launched a new program allowing systems administrators worldwide to evaluate the award-winning KBOX™ Systems Management Appliance for up to 30 days at no cost. The trial KBOX can be installed in just a few minutes, runs on a variety of VMware products, including VMware Player, and can accommodate the management of up to 25 computers. This announcement comes on the heels of KACE's new VMware Ready™ Certification status for its Virtual KBOX technology.
"With this 30-day free Virtual KBOX trial offer, KACE brings its ease-of-use and affordability value proposition directly to systems administrators to let them experience it for themselves," said Rob Meinhardt, co-founder and CEO of KACE. "We're excited for administrators to see first-hand the full range of benefits KBOX has to offer and how our innovative technology can save them valuable time and their organizations money."
Helping pave the way for the trial KBOX was KACE's recent VMware Ready Certification for the Virtual KBOX Systems Management Appliance. Customers can now have even greater confidence that Virtual KBOX will work seamlessly within their virtual infrastructures and will be ready for quick and easy deployment to their environments. To achieve this designation the KBOX technology passed a detailed valuation and testing process managed by VMware. Virtual KBOX is now listed on the VMware Partner Product Catalog and can be found at http://wwwa.vmware.com/partnercatalog/catalog/.
"Technology product trials can take a tremendous amount of time to set-up and configure," said Eric Schubert, IT consultant for Northern Power Systems of Vermont. "With the KACE virtual KBOX free trial offer, I was up and running in minutes. I am amazed by the power and flexibility of the technology. I highly recommend giving the trial a shot as I am confident others will be as impressed as I am."
