About the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance (K2000) 4.1

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance (K2000) provides a network-centric solution for capturing and deploying images. The K2000 provides a seamless cross-platform imaging solution from a single Administrator Console enabling you to provision Microsoft® Windows® and Apple® OS X® platforms. You can deploy the configuration files, user states, and applications as an image to a single device or to multiple devices simultaneously.

The K2000 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 automatically downloads Dell driver models, and the Package Management feature enables uploading third-party driver packages. You can also integrate the K2000 with the KACE Systems Management Appliance (K1000) to image the K1000 inventory. The K2000 is available as a virtual or physical appliance.

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance (K2000), version 4.1 is a minor release of the product which brings several Remote Site Appliance (RSA) improvements and additional OS support to the appliance. Many capabilities that have been added to the core appliance over the last couple of releases, have been brought into the RSA. These include RSA user state capture, RSA image capture, and RSA multicast capabilities. Additionally, support for Mac OS X® Sierra (10.12) and Windows Server® 2016 have been added.
