Yes, Cloud Access Manager is a SaaS solution with a small component of minimal footprint that resides in your cloud subscription. Cloud Access Manager is a comprehensive solution for managing remote workstations in your infrastructure, bringing the best in performance, security, visibility, and control with minimal complexity.

Your remote workstations are resident in your own enterprise cloud subscription but are managed and brokered by Cloud Access Manager.  By keeping the remote workstations in your own subscription, you maintain full flexibility in machine configuration and get to control of key security aspects such as network connectivity and security groups.  This ensures you have ultimate cost control and cost visibility through both Cloud Access Manager and your enterprise cloud management portal.

Lightweight gateway and server components, called the Cloud Access Connector, are deployed in your subscription to provide the best-case flexibility, performance, and security. Cloud Access Manager has no access to customer data - this data flows through servers in your subscription and not through the Cloud Access Connector. These server components contain no persistent data and can be simply deleted and re-deployed when needed. Cloud Access Manager configuration data is kept in a Key Vault and storage account in your subscription.

Currently, Cloud Access Manager provides administrators with information on remote workstation user allocations,information on the current power state of the remote workstations to help you manage costs anda system health check on the Cloud Access Manager Service API's and Domain Controller.
