Dell recently unveiled a variety of new enterprise solutions to help customers deliver results faster at its Enterprise Spring launch event in San Francisco. In addition to showcasing 12G server and storage technology, the event also highlighted the benefits of managing and monitoring servers via KACE and Dell OpenManage Essentials.
What does this mean to Dell customers and more specifically to KACE customers? Server crashes and mal-functions can incur millions of dollars in losses for organizations. Server monitoring lays the foundation for a healthy IT infrastructure which is essential for the long term success of an organization. Dell OpenManage Essentials offers server monitoring capabilities that now communicate with the Dell KACE System Management Appliance service desk to enable customers to leverage their existing Dell investments and enhance IT efficiency by providing integrated information on the status of Dell desktops, laptops and server systems.
Our most recent customer survey revealed that more than 50 percent of KACE customers are using the K1000 to manage servers and the integration of Dell OpenManage Essentials with the Dell KACE K1000 Systems Management Appliance is a boon to organizations with Dell servers because it provides a simple, cost-effective, and comprehensive approach that meets the needs of most enterprises. Dell OpenManage also delivers remote access management, BIOS and system chassis management, and active hardware system monitoring via SNMP or IPMI.
Dell offers a wide range of products and services across the end to end IT infrastructure such as desktops, laptops, servers, storage, systems management etc. KACE Appliances offer many capabilities that make systems management even simpler for customers with Dell systems. KACE Appliances support and integrate with many of Dell’s products at various levels to provide streamlined user experience across the IT stack. The integration of Dell OpenManage Essentials and KACE is a classic example of how beneficial synergies can be realized by combining two proven technologies.
