VMware offers a hardened virtual appliance deployment known as Unified Access Gateway that hosts Workspace ONE services like Per-App Tunnel, and is the preferred method for deployment. Deploying VMware Tunnel on Unified Access Gateway can be done from either vSphere or Hyper-V and can be automated using PowerShell.

From an architecture and networking perspective, Unified Access Gateway and the stand-alone Linux installer are the same. The Tunnel service on Unified Access Gateway is same as what the Linux installer provides.
