KACE K2000 Series Deployment Appliances Architecture

Harnessing the Power of an Appliance-based Architecture

Introduction

Organizations regardless of size or industry roll out business applications to the workforce. These applications and their supporting operating systems must be regularly updated and managed, often with very small teams of IT professionals. These same small teams support a wider range of hardware platforms than ever before. In response to these challenges, organizations turned to traditional, enterprise software IT deployment and management solutions. However, the cost and complexity of deploying and maintaining these solutions often puts them out of reach.

KACE K2000 Series Deployment Appliances break down these cost and complexity barriers and bring affordable, end-to-end systems provisioning to organizations of all sizes by utilizing an appliance-based architecture. An appliance-based architecture delivers a complete, pre-integrated bundle of operating environment and application software via a dedicated server appliance. Appliance-based architectures eliminate many of the complexities and costs of traditional software solutions such as hardware procurement, and software installation and integration. At the same time, it provides exceptional performance, reliability, and control through a purpose-built solution that is pretuned, hardened and self-healing. This paper describes how the K2000 appliance-based architecture provides a centralized, network-centric deployment solution that is both extremely robust and highly affordable.
