What is Anyware Manager as a Service?¶
Anyware Manager is a HP management plane enabling users to configure, manage and monitor brokering of remote workstations. Anyware Manager enables highly-scalable and cost-effective Anyware Software deployments by managing cloud compute costs by brokering PCoIP connections to remote Windows or Linux workstations.
Anyware Manager as a Service is a service that is managed by HP that enables Anyware users to securely access the cloud-based version of Anyware Manager. Anyware Manager as a Service also requires an external component called Anyware Connector that resides in the users environment. Connector is a access hub that facilitates PCoIP connections to remote desktops and workstations by providing user authentication, entitlement and security gateway services. In all deployment environments, Anyware Manager as a Service interacts seamlessly with Connectors to access and manage your remote desktops and workstations.
Once Anyware Manager as a Service has been enabled, all configurations and deployment management will be carried out in the Admin Console.
