The VMware Workspace ONE® Access™ service (formerly known as VMware Identity Manager™) is available on-premises with Project Photon OS™, a minimal Linux container host..
When the on-premises installation is finished, you can use the administration console to manage users and groups, set up and manage authentication and access policies, add resources to the catalog, including web applications, VMware Horizon® applications and desktops, and Citrix-published resources, and manage entitlements to resources in the catalog.
This information is intended for administrators of Workspace ONE Access. The information is written for experienced Linux and Windows system administrators who are familiar with VMware technologies, particularly vCenter™, ESX™, and vSphere®, networking concepts, Active Directory servers, databases, backup and restore procedures, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), and NTP servers. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinApp®, Citrix-published resources, and RSA SecurID, is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
Workspace ONE Access and Other Technologies
You must integrate the Workspace ONE Access service with several other technologies, including the Workspace ONE Access connector. You must integrate the service with other VMware technologies, such as vCenter™, ESX™, and vSphere®.
Knowledge of many other technologies is required, such as of Active Directory, databases, backup and restore procedures, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), and NTP servers. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware Horizon and RSA SecurID, is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
