Dell announces new Kace appliances for 3,500 seats

Dell's new system management appliances include new server hardware

Dell is outfitting its new Kace systems management appliances with advanced hardware as it tries to fill software and hardware management needs of midsize businesses with up to 3,500 employees.

The K-Series Advanced line, announced Wednesday, is designed to remotely manage hardware and software in IT infrastructures. Dell acquired Kace last year to boost its remote support and system management offerings.

Dell's Kace offerings are designed to support 300 to 20,000 PCs in an IT infrastructure. The system management services include software patch deployment, hardware configuration and security audits. The company also offers software tools to develop customized systems management features.

The new K1100-ADV and K2100-ADV are rackmount appliances that can serve up to 3,500 seats, but perform different functions. The two-socket appliances are equipped with Intel Xeon quad-core processors and come in RAID 5 configurations. The K1100-ADV, which is for systems management, offers up to 12GB of memory and 1.5TB of SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) storage. The K2100-ADV, which is for systems deployment, offers up to 6GB of memory and up to 750GB of SATA storage.

The K1000 series offers asset management functions such as software distribution, license compliance and patch management, which are not provided by the K2000 series. The K2000 series includes disk imaging and network-based OS installation features.

The appliances are now available, though Dell could not provide further availability and pricing details.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
