One of the cool things about working at KACE is helping make a product that people genuinely need and want. The job of keeping up with an organization's computers, networks, software, licenses, patches, security exposure, etc. is growing to near hopelessness for IT pros without good tools. KACE appliances are effective, affordable, and simple for medium and larger enterprises.
Small operations have different standards of what's "affordable" and "simple", though - so today KACE introduces the M300, a systems management appliance cheap and simple enough for virtually anybody.
I've only had a tiny, peripheral role in bringing out the M300, but it still feels really good. Better systems management is something the world truly needs - too many human souls pour way too many hours into the scutwork part of IT. I hope the M300 can get a lot more people get free from that.
