KACE solutions help Orange County Comptroller with time management 03:48

In today’s complex, multiplatform IT environment, manual disk imaging and image deployment processes are unworkable. You cannot afford to waste valuable IT staff time with one-off systems imaging, or risk employee productivity by failing to provide timely operating system imaging, software and proper drivers.

KACE Systems Deployment Appliance offers a fast, automated way to execute large-scale Windows and Linux system deployments across multiple remote sites or networks. This hardware agnostic solution streamlines initial provisioning and ongoing administration of master system images and driver updates across diverse hardware platforms — reducing operational costs while ensuring that connected systems remain up to date and secure. Plus, it restores settings and files so users can immediately be productive with their newly imaged systems.

Customer quotes

Jaeb Center for Health

Before we got KACE, imaging our machines for our new employees and existing employees was a challenge as we replace machines every year. KACE has definitely helped us ramp that up and solved all of our issues with both the SDA and the SMA.

Jonathan Guthrie Senior LAN Administrator, Jaeb Center for Health

Coastal Community Credit Union

We went from manually imaging five machines per hour to 15–20 with the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance. In one night alone, we did 60 deployments.

Albemarle Public Schools

We image systems every summer so the software that's going to be used in the coming school year is all new and up to date. Before we had the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, it would take about two and half hours to image a computer from start to finish. Now it takes us less than an hour.
