About this release

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance provides a network-centric solution for capturing and deploying images. The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance provides a seamless cross-platform imaging solution from a single Administrator Console enabling you to provision Microsoft® Windows®, Apple® OS X®, as well as Red Hat, CentOS and Ubuntu Linux platforms. You can deploy the configuration files, user states, and applications as an image to a single device or to multiple devices simultaneously.

The appliance provides the tools necessary to automate deployments in both homogeneous and heterogeneous hardware environments, and provides reliability of large-scale image deployments with multicast and task engine capabilities. The built-in driver feed allows for downloads of Dell drivers for business class model machines, while drivers from other manufacturers can be added manually with ease. You can also integrate the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance with the KACE Systems Management Appliance to image devices in the KACE Systems Management Appliance inventory. The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance is available as a virtual appliance.
