"The Dell KACE M300 Asset Management Appliance family is
targeted for management of deployment of between 50 and 200 managed
nodes. Dell KACE already has a pair of appliances in the market for
larger deployments, including the K1000, which was updated in 2010.
Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) acquired KACE in February 2010 in an effort to
beef up its compliance and systems management offerings....
"In terms of what runs under the hood, the M300 takes a
different direction from Dell KACE's larger K1000 appliance. The
K1000 uses an open source FreeBSD operating system as its base. In
contrast, the new M300 uses a Debian Linux operating system."
