The VMware Workspace ONE® Access™ service is available on-premises as Linux-based virtual appliance with Project Photon OS™, a minimal Linux container host.

When the on-premises installation is finished, you can use the Workspace ONE Access console to manage users and groups, set up and manage authentication and access policies, and add resources to the catalog and manage entitlements to those resources. You can also configure Workspace ONE UEM integration, and launch Hub Services.

Workspace ONE Access and Other Technologies

You 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.
