Virtual Appliances Get Real for Midsized Enterprises
The benefits of virtualization are well known, including better resource utilization, reductions in power and physical server space and the ability to improve overall system availability. Still, while the benefits of virtualization are broad, their full realization has been a challenge for mid-sized organizations who struggle to manage and support complex physical and virtual environments.
Since 2003, KACE has been focused on providing comprehensive, affordable appliance-based systems management solutions to organizations looking to maximize value in their IT support solutions. And now, we’re helping VM users “get real” by providing a virtual systems management appliance, the Virtual KBOX, that brings these same easy to deploy and use systems management capabilities to the medium sized organization via a virtual appliance. In addition to the full functionality of its physical counterpart, the V-KBOX requires no hardware, is easy to scale and embodies the full redundancy and fault tolerance that is the hallmark of virtual implementations, all with the reality check of more modest budgets and IT staffs. Take a look at the recent Enterprise Management Associates’ Impact Brief, KACE Virtual Systems Management Appliances: New Options for Cutting Costs and Complexity, and you’ll see that its title says it all. In addition, the Virtual KBOX appliances have been extensively tested by VMware and “certified production ready,” which means they are considered reliable, secure and optimized to run on VMware products.
KACE continues to keep it real with easy-to-use, affordable systems management appliances, both physical and virtual, that deliver comprehensive systems management functionality with a lower TCO than software-only alternatives.
