What does Dell Kace do?

Hello community,

Does anybody know what Dell Kace do? Is it similar to VMware ACE and View? If you have experience with Kace, VMware ACE and VIew or both please share them. Please don't just paste the product links here, I've read them. The explanation on those product pages are so ambiguous. I am looking for real life scenarios or some case examples.

Thanks!

It is a system management solution.  It is mainly distributed as a standalone hardware solution.  It has several modules, helpdesk, image deployment, asset patching, remote deployment of software, reporting, and tons of other things.  This product is similar to Microsoft systems configuration manager formerly known as SMS.  What this product does that many system management solution do not is ease of use, and you do not need a fulltime administrator to maintain it.

I Agree with Cchris15's post. I have been running Kace Kbox for about 1 year and it does everything stated above. I am running the virtual applicance version which is managing about 425 machine. Patching, Software deployment, Software inventoyr and metering. Very good product for the price.

All web based administration. They also give you a 4 day remote kick start class.

Better than SMS? If so, how is it better? Plus, who are its direct competitors?

Hi.

Been using DELL K1000 & K2000 for about 6 months and they are great.

Its excellent, able to monitor installed/removed software, scripting installs and auto deployments of software. Licence compliance and LOTS more... All in all its very powerful, Make the day to day stuff very easy to manage. We went for the full hardware and been a pleasure using them.

K2000 life saver for windows deployments building full step by step installs.

10/10 to Dell for this solution.
