The K1000 and K2000 are different product lines. http://www.kace.com/products/overview/ The K1000 has a few different models, the base model is K1100. For the K2000 series the base is K2100. I'm not sure which model the trial is licensed as but that would be a great way to start. http://www.kace.com/trial/

Gilly,

Thanks a lot for such a prompt response.

Kindly provide answers to following questions

1. Can't i use one KBOX Model to suffice all my System management requirement or does i have to purchase one K1000 series and one K2000 Series to support complete system management licenses.

2. Can i purchase Kbox only as an application instead of procuring it as an applicance i.e. a server itself

K1000 series is for Systems Management (License compliance, Software Deployment, Scripting, Patching, Reporting, Inventory, Etc.)
K2000 series is for Systems Deployment (Disk Imaging, Scripted installations of complete systems, recovery of new/refreshed systems, etc.)
Both series are available in physical or virtual appliance models.

As GillySpy said, there's some great info in the Trial and the flash demo.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

If i understand you correctly, we need to think about K2000 only when OS Imaging and Machine Build/Rebuild is the task that we wanted to acheive.

We don't have to do OS Imaging, then for rest of the things K1000 will suffice the purpose.

One more think Kbox can be avaible as an application, if i need to procure i only have two options one is for Virtual environment and the other appliance option is physical i.e. procuring the server itself with Kbox installed

KBOX is an appliance, not a standalone application, which makes it much more stable and easier to set up in my experience.
The virtual appliance runs on the free versions of VMware, or your existing infrastructure; the physical model is a 1U rack-mountable chassis running on Dell PowerEdge hardware. I hope that helps answer your question.

Blake,

One question is still unanswered from last post, regarding K2000. Kindly let me know if i am not doing OS build/Rebuild does i need K2000 or just K1000 will suffice the purpose.

What is the best way to contact you, as i am also part of Dell Services.
Thanks Again

If you do not wish to image machines the K2000 series is not likely what you seek. K1000 series is for managing systems after they've been imaged (either using K2000, other imaging products, or just the regular OEM build).
