KACE Product Support Question

K1000 EC2/Azure Support

05/08/2019 1260 views

I found the following support article from October of 2018; however, have any of you had any luck running your K1000 in AWS or Azure? Any insight on what OS the K1000 is?


Answer Summary:
as of today: 2019-05-09 AWS is not supported (since AWS supports FreeBSD it should work but no support can be given) Azure is supported from SMA 9.1 KaaS is supported since many years

to support a virtualization environment Quest needs strong connections to the vendor to verify that it is fully supported and als take action if something does not work as it should.

As of today the following is supported:
1. self hosting using vmware or Hyper-V
2. Kace as a service (KAAS) in some partner data centers
3. Azure (from SMA 9.1)

All other should work (if the vendor supports FreeBSD it is likely that it will work) but it was not tested and no support can be given.
Quest checks if additional vendors qualify so it may be possible in the future (other cloud vendors or hypervisors)

K1000 or KACE SMA is now supported on Azure and can be found in Azure Marketplace. No support for AWS yet.
