Educational IT: Level Up Your Imaging Processes This Summer!

Summer is almost upon us, signaling a critical time for Educational IT professionals: the reimagining of systems for the upcoming school year. With a myriad of desktops and laptops spread across numerous sites for faculty and students alike, the task at hand is undeniably daunting. But, what if there was a way to streamline the imaging process, drastically reduce the number of images required, and automate deployment? I'm sure I've now piqued your interest. This blog will guide you on how to elevate your imaging strategy, saving both time and money in the process.

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance is the key to unlocking those time savings. Here are the top 5 perks to get you to the next level.

  1. Comprehensive Driver Feed: Say goodbye to the hassle of managing separate images for different device types. With built-in support for Dell, HP, and Lenovo, a single image can now cater to multiple hardware vendors by automatically injecting the correct drivers when necessary. Plus, our driver feed tool accommodates even the most nontraditional hardware, allowing you to upload any drivers you need seamlessly.
  2. Future-Proof Imaging: Stay ahead of the curve with full support for Windows 10 and 11, as well as Windows Servers. Thanks to secure boot technology, the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance prepares your systems for not only the present but also whatever the future holds.
  3. Multi-site Support: Our Remote Site Appliance ensures you can image both locally and at remote sites without the need for additional licensing. Simply spin up as many Remote Site Appliances as required, link them back to your Systems Deployment Appliance, and manage your images from a central location to deploy them wherever needed.
  4. Automated Deployment: Set up an imaging job and let the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance take over. By automating the deployment process, you're free to multiply your efforts elsewhere, streamlining your workflow and enhancing productivity.
  5. Offline Deployments: Whether it's sending an image backup home with a remote worker or addressing the occasional imaging needs of a smaller remote site, creating an offline image is a breeze. With just a few clicks, generate an offline image complete with boot environment, image, and drivers, load it onto a flash drive, and you're all set.

Don't let this summer pass you by without advancing to the next level. With these five perks from KACE, you can turn the time-consuming task of imaging into an efficient and streamlined process. Time and efficiency are now on your side, thanks to KACE.
