Dells adds Chromebook support, agentless monitoring to management appliance


With investors no longer breathing down its neck for growth in its hardware business, Dell is continuing to invest in its $2.5 billion software business with enhancements to its KACE K1000 Systems Management Appliance.

Billed as a major upgrade, version 6.3 of the K1000  features what the vendor claimed is industry-first support for Chromebooks (right), as well as agentless inventory of Windows servers and PCs along with basic log monitoring for servers.

Chromebooks are the little-noticed growth story of the PC industry, with International Data Corp. estimating that 6 million were sold last year and Gartner, Inc. expecting that number to reach 14.4 million in 2017. Google provides a management console for users of multiple devices, but it supports neither lifecycle management nor integration with other reporting tools, according to Bill Odell, vice president of marketing for Dell Endpoint Systems Management. “It’s more of an initial setup and change tool,” he said.
