Don't let security threats stop you from leveraging key technologies.
 

Features

Save time and bandwidth with the K-Image format

The K2000 K-image format is file based, allowing you to easily edit computer and server images, eliminating the need to rebuild images. Its single-instancing technology minimizes the time, bandwidth and storage required to capture and archive disk images. Efficient state management allows for lightning-fast disk imaging by bypassing redundant file transfers and applying changes only to the original image. The agentless feature of other K2000 components extends to disk imaging, so you have the ability to execute fully automated bare-metal system build-outs.

Improve deployment reliability

Whether utilizing the K2000 Virtual Remote Appliance, KBE USB, or KBE CD, you can reference all images, network OS installations and related assets from the centralized deployment library. This makes it much easier to ensure that you don’t inadvertently deploy an outdated disk image or network OS installation to systems, improving deployment reliability and saving you valuable time.

Automate pre- and post-installation tasks

The K2000 saves you time by eliminating the need to manually build out a single machine. The K2000’s pre-installation automated tasks include disk, RAID, and BIOS configuration, while post-installation tasks include sysprep automation, domain joining, service pack application and script deployment.

Support multiple user platforms

The K2000 Deployment Appliance's file-based imaging format supports both Windows and Mac platforms. A remote disk image can be easily automated from the K2000’s web-based console.
