Dell KACE Appliance Architecture
The Appliance Advantage Saves You Time and Saves Your Company Money
The Dell KACE Family of Systems Management Appliances saves you time and your company money. KACE utilizes an appliance-based architecture bringing an easy-to-use, comprehensive and affordable server and computer management software alternative to organizations of all sizes.
KACE Appliances fulfill your systems management needs from initial deployment to ongoing management and retirement using a pre-integrated bundle of operating environment and application software via a dedicated server appliance. They can be plugged into an existing network and immediately begin functioning. The appliance-based architecture eliminates many of the costs of traditional computer management software packages. With KACE Appliances there are no hardware or software pre-requisites to procure and install, no professional services fees to incur, no custom integration costs and only minimal training is needed. A KACE Appliance can deliver a more economical systems management solution than available with traditional computer management software. At the same time KACE Appliances provide exceptional performance, reliability, ease of use and scalability through a purpose-built solution that is pre-tuned, hardened and self-monitoring.
KACE Appliances provide these benefits through a deep integration of distributed agent communications, hardware, operating environment, and application functionality. The benefits of this appliance-based approach include:
Each layer has been designed to work exclusively with, and leverage the purpose-built services of, its adjacent layers to maximize the performance and reliability of the total solution.
The architecture focuses on automating deployment and maintenance of the solution, enabling IT to focus on and complete actual management operations. The net effect is breakthrough IT operational efficiency.
