Managing Linux with VMware Workspace ONE has the following great features:
- Management of the device through the Intelligent Hub
- Monitor the device with user defined sensors
- Application Mangement & Deployment on Linux Devices
- User Driven Enrollment for Linux Workspaces
- Lot of development in future releases
What I have learned from this is that in the past, Linux Management was kind of difficult because there are not much products who manage Linux then VMware does, with the sensors, the application deployment and even in future release device lock, reboot and wipe. App Management will be more advanced in future releases and Scripting and VMware Tunnel integration will be one of the future features.
I hope you have enjoyed this series of blog post about VMware Workspace ONE UEM, Managing Linux.
Workspace ONE is an advanced product which does much much more then only managing Linux devices, but for this specific Blog Post I have zoomed in on the Linux Part because there are not many products like this.
From the real world, the examples I have seen are for example management of Raspberry Pi’s running specific software for a specific use case, which were not being managed and always needed to be updated manually. With VMware Workspace ONE UEM it is not possible to do an upgrade which – otherwise – takes weeks, can now be done in days. And from a monitoring perspective you can proactively fix issues when they occur before other people notice it. And from an application deployment perspective, it is a lot easier remote than locally with Keyboard / Mouse / Screen for an embedded system!
