CAS Manager is a Teradici management plane enabling users to configure, manage and monitor brokering of remote workstations. CAS Manager enables highly-scalable and cost-effective Cloud Access Software deployments by managing cloud compute costs by brokering PCoIP connections to remote Windows or Linux workstations.
CAS Manager is offered in 2 variants – as a Teradici managed Service, and as an installable instance deployed and managed by the users in their on-premises or cloud environments. For information on CAS Manager as a Service, see here.
CAS Manager also requires an external component called Cloud Access Connector that resides in the user's environment. Cloud Access Connector is an access hub that facilitates PCoIP connections to remote desktops and workstations by providing user authentication, entitlement and security gateway services. For more information on Cloud Access Connector, see the Key Concepts section in the CAS Manager as a Service guide.
CAS Manager enables you to install multiple Cloud Access Connectors in multiple cloud regions as well as in an on-premises environment.
In addition to managing cloud compute costs, CAS Manager handles user entitlement, authentication (including RADIUS-compatible multifactor authentication (MFA)) and brokering of connections during PCoIP session establishment. The Cloud Access Connector enables external users to access their remote desktops without the complexity of endpoint VPNS.
