Dell KACE released its new K-Series Advanced line of appliances designed to address the unique needs of midsize businesses, offering enterprise capabilities at “pay-as-you-grow” pricing. Aimed at fast-growing organizations with 1,000 to 3,500 end-point systems, the K-Series Advanced offers systems management capabilities that focus on the unique needs of the mid-market segment. The new line complements Dell KACE’s current portfolio of appliances for small business and enterprise appliances, catering to the unique needs of IT organizations of all sizes.

Traditionally, small and midsize businesses (SMB) have been treated as a single, homogenous segment within the IT solutions market, but in reality, medium-sized organizations have very different needs -- these organizations face the unique challenge of having to scale and expand quickly with limited budgets. Dell KACE’s Advanced Appliance solutions deliver a smooth, non-disruptive migration path for rapidly growing organizations, allowing companies to quickly expand without the high cost, work stoppages, or compromised quality of service common to traditional software-only system upgrades.

The new K-Series Advanced Appliances include the K1100-ADV for systems management and the K2100-ADV for systems deployment. The new line features quad-core Xeon processors, RAID 5 configuration, high speed drivers and redundant power supplies.

The Dell KACE family of systems management and deployment appliances fulfill the systems management needs for organizations of all sizes, from initial computer deployment to ongoing management and retirement. Dell KACE products are available as both physical and virtual appliances, directly from Dell or through its partners.
