Workspace ONE UEM can be deployed on-premises in various configurations to suit diverse business requirements. When deployed within a network infrastructure, Workspace ONE UEM can adhere to strict corporate security policies by storing all data on site. In addition, Workspace ONE UEM has been designed to run on virtual environments, which creates seamless deployments on several different setups.

The primary difference between deployment sizes (by number of devices) is how Workspace ONE UEM components are grouped, and how they are positioned within the corporate network. The Workspace ONE UEM solution is highly customizable to meet your specific needs. If necessary, contact VMware support to discuss the possible server combinations that best suit your needs. For more information on hardware sizing, see Hardware Sizing.

Most typical Workspace ONE UEM topologies support reverse proxies. A reverse proxy can be used to route incoming traffic from devices and users on the Internet to the Workspace ONE UEM servers in your corporate network. Consult your Workspace ONE UEM representative for information about supported technologies, as support is continuously evolving.

For more information about configuring reverse proxies with Workspace ONE UEM, see the following Workspace ONE UEM Knowledge Base article: https://support.workspaceone.com/articles/115001665868.

Standard Deployment Model

In a standard Workspace ONE UEM deployment, you use multiple servers for the various components. You can use a DMZ architecture to segment the administrative console server into the internal network for increased security. This deployment model allows for increased resource capacity by allowing each server to be dedicated to Workspace ONE UEM components.

While these components are combined in some diagrams for illustrative purposes, they can reside on a dedicated server. Many configuration combinations exist and may apply to your particular network setup. For a detailed look at these configurations based on deployment size, see Hardware Sizing. Contact Workspace ONE UEM and schedule a consultation to discuss the appropriate server configuration for your on-premises deployment.
