RES One Core Edition

If we take a look at the current offering of the RES ONE Workspace we can separate the modules in the following picture. As you can see RES ONE Workspace Core is the foundation.

RES_5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RES One Workspace consists of 4 Modules that can now run independently of each other.

Composition Module

  • Fundamentals for fully secured and controlled desktop infrastructure for users.
  • It provides context–aware and centrally managed workspaces for your users that contain all of the right applications, data, printing and personal settings that are essential for their success.
  • IT professionals can process any changes and preview their impact from a single central console before altering a user’s workspace.

Governance

  • gain control and insight about your deployed workspaces.
  • Improve your ability to manage your infrastructure with clear logs of changes, current status reporting, and license usage data from all users.
  • This module also makes it possible to open or restrict the management console for different administrative roles and create real-time configuration reports.
  • Plus, it supports administrators in managing different application delivery techniques.

Security Module

  • Deliver a personalized desktop according to company business rules and compliance.
  • Building upon the previous modules, enabling security prevents users from unauthorized actions such as executing certain applications and the use of removable disks.
  • You can add or remove these restrictions based on a user’s context.

 

 

 

Microsoft App-V 5.x option: “Hide application if executable was not found” now greyed out when using RES ONE Workspace Package delivery.

 

When configuring a Microsoft App-V 5.x application to be deployed by RES ONE Workspace, the option Hide application if executable was not found (on the Properties > Settings tab of the application) is now automatically grayed out. This prevents the application from being hidden accidentally, if it has not yet been deployed to the machine that the session is running on.
