The KACE Systems Management Appliance is available in two different deployment options to best fulfill your organizational and IT needs. You can purchase the KACE SMA as an on-premises virtual appliance and run it on your own servers utilizing VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V. If you would prefer a hosted environment, you can also have Quest host the KACE SMA in our own data centers and subscribe to the KACE SMA under a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model (KACE as a Service).

How it works:

The KACE SMA Virtual Appliance
For those organizations that have deployed a virtual environment, the KACE SMA is available as a virtual appliance running on VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments. Simply download the KACE SMA from our data warehouse and install it on the supported virtual environment of your choice — Virtual KACE SMA supports VMware ESX/ESXi 5.5 or higher (Open Virtualization Format (OVF) 1.0) and Windows Server® 2012/ 2012 R2 with Hyper-V Server 2012/2012 R2.
Avoid infrastructure costs with KACE as a Service
KACE as a Service provides you with all of the features and functionality of the KACE SMA on-premises virtual appliance, in a hosted, cloud-delivered virtual appliance. KACE as a Service provides each organization its own dedicated virtual KACE appliance instance (VK appliance). This means your data is not intermingled with those of other organizations, providing you with added security and making it easier to comply with security regulations. And because Dell™ takes care of the hosting, you do not have to worry about allocating data center capacity or any resources to manage the KACE SMA in your own infrastructure. Since KACE as a Service does not require any upfront capital expense, it can be easier for you to financially justify obtaining a comprehensive anypoint systems management solution, as it can be allocated as an operational expense vs. a capital expense.
