Windows Deployment and Updates

Migrate files and settings and manage Windows updates seamlessly

Deploy user-specific files and settings as well as an operating system and applications with virtually no risk of losing critical information. The Dell KACE K2000 Deployment Appliance user state management capability allows you to specify precisely what data will be transferred in a migration. When users launch their new computer or operating system for the first time, it will contain all the necessary information and applications from their old computer or operating system.

Conduct driver updates for all the machines you support with one click. The K2000 driver manager will automatically download and organize them by computer model.

Features

Centralized user state management

All captured user states are stored in the K2000 centralized deployment library allowing you to quickly access the appropriate user states to place alongside a Network OS Install or image through a convenient graphical menu. Whether a computer needs to accommodate one or multiple users, the K2000 facilitates easy provisioning.

Migration templates

Specify what data types and other resources you’d like to migrate and exclude items by file type using migration templates. For example, you can exclude unique sound or video files, or specific parts of user folders, such as Shared Music or Shared Pictures.

Intuitive graphical interface

Capture or load user states with the click of a button using an intuitive user interface. Remove complicated command-line syntax from the equation with the K2000 user state migration function and quickly learn and easily utilize this feature.

Offline migration

Migrate data offline from a pre-install task on your K2000 as part of a new OS deployment without needing to first boot a computer in its old operating system. Recover files and settings automatically, using a migration template you specify, and restore users automatically after the OS deployment is complete.

Seamless migration

Deploy user-specific files and settings as well as an operating system and applications with the K2000 user state migration, and reduce the risk of losing critical information. Easily help users comply with corporate compliance directives mandating users not to store certain types of data, such as personal music and video files, on company computers. Use migration templates to specify precisely what data will be transferred.

Automated driver updates

Conduct driver updates for all the machines you support with one click. The K2000 driver manager will automatically download and organize them by computer model. The KACE appliances automatically detect the brand and model of all hardware, peripheral devices and software drivers. The K2000 automatically imports Dell software drivers directly so that the latest drivers are always available. Minimize the need to hunt for drivers on the internet, save time and ensure that the appropriate driver is available for all your OS deployments.
