RES ONE Workspace
Streamline the management of complex hybrid environments by automating critical processes to deliver IT services to the business.
Today’s workforce wants to work from anywhere, anytime, forcing IT to support multiple devices and flexible access to the data, apps and networks, without losing sight of security. RES ONE Workspace drives productivity for the workforce, providing workers with a familiar and seamless workspace that is both secure and dynamic based on their changing contexts and across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
Digital workspaces that work – all the time. Empowering both IT and the workforce
Advanced user profile management
Say goodbye to corrupt profiles and challenges managing the workforce across physical and virtual environments. RES ONE Workspace centrally manages all desktops, users and roles. Overcome personalization and configuration issues with roaming users by storing and applying profile data in real time per application. It's simple for IT to implement with built-in templates.
A user's workspace adapts, just-in-time, based on the current and actual state of a worker. Context awareness detects and adapts automatically to real-time conditions such as location, wireless access points, time, device, identity and more, for granular access control and optimized workspaces for mobile workers. You can automatically provide the right services, to the right user, at the right time and place.
Better protect your organization from internal threats and vulnerabilities by restricting access to apps, data, network, websites and removable storage based on granular context rules and, for added defense, render all local drives read-only by a single click.
Dynamic privileges allow you to elevate or restrict access rights to applications, installations and control panel applets to limit and protect local administrator privileges. Blacklisting and whitelisting, including sophisticated file hash capabilities, give you the tightest controls around application access to prevent malware from entering your organization. Integration with endpoint security solutions makes it easy to manage and maintain hash lists for the highest level of protection.
Analysis and reporting
Usage Tracking allows monitoring of the actual use of apps per user, per app or per server. Find users or apps that are using more than an average amount of system resources to redistribute licenses for cost effectiveness, or simply for troubleshooting.
Keep track of license usage and help enforce license policies by controlling all apps from the single workspace management layer. Also track attempted access to sensitive data or apps. With these reports, preparation for audits is much faster, saving time and money.
Governance and reporting
Pull detailed reports on all previously executed tasks and queries based by job or by agent. This increased visibility provides better governance, improves quality of service and simplifies troubleshooting.
Single management layer
With a single management layer, one console and one repository, you can easily centralize all desktop management and the associated configurations across multiple delivery platforms.
Object-oriented workspace management
Every item you offer to a desktop user becomes a workspace object. Manage all settings within the object, including access, policies, integration and security.
A single client processes all configuration rules just-in-time and enables advanced profile management. It is dynamic and adaptive to every user situation and even keeps offline desktops controlled.
Patented reverse seamless technology that is available through RES Virtual Desktop Extender (RES VDX) enables local apps that don't run smoothly or at all in virtual environments to run seamlessly within a user’s virtual session. Workers are given a single desktop experience, eliminating the need to switch between multiple sessions. This helps IT enable Bring Your Own (BYO) programs within the enterprise and improve user adoption of desktop virtualization technologies, including VDI. Learn more about VDX here.
RES ONE Workspace constantly features new integrations to help you make the most of your technology investments. We offer integrations among leading virtualization, publishing, streaming, deployment and automation technologies. You will be able to consistently manage access, configuration and security of all your apps from a single location, and add context awareness to existing solutions like Citrix, VMware and Microsoft. RES ONE Workspace also offers capabilities for migrating to Microsoft Office 365 with minimal disruption to the workforce.
Eliminate the need for complex scripting with flexible automation, including hundreds of built in tasks. Multiple tasks can be linked together, allowing for intelligent automation of more complex processes.
Tasks, queries, third-party connectors
Easily transport configuration settings from one RES ONE Workspace environment to another. Make changes predictable by guaranteeing repeatable results in test, accept and production environments.

RES ONE Workspace architecture
RES ONE Workspace architecture is simple and easy to scale.
The RES ONE Workspace console
The IT professional uses a management console to create the list of all possible desktop items that need to be composed and secured in a user workspace. This console is the main interface for the IT professional. It offers a workspace designer that helps the IT professional create workspace items. The Workspace Model controls which parts should be composed and secured. It is the only place where the IT professional needs to go to for workspace management. The management console stores all the provided information in a database.
The RES ONE Workspace datastore
The datastore is the central database for your RES ONE Workspace environment. All computers can connect to this database directly, or via an optional relay server for maximum scalability.
The datastore can exist on any of the following database types:
- SQL (including SQL Express and SQL Azure)
Relay servers are an optional workspace management infrastructure component. They cache information from the datastore and pass it on to agents or other relay servers.
Relay servers offer:
- Improved scalability in all kinds of distributed network topologies
- Reduced network traffic in multiple-site environments, as fewer components connect directly to the central datastore over relatively slow data connections
- Reduced datastore load, as fewer components connect directly to the central datastore
- Agents that connect to relay servers do not need to have a database driver installed for the RES ONE Workspace datastore
RES ONE Workspace agent
The RES ONE Workspace agent composes the uniform workspace that the end users are presented with, regardless of the technology stack used. This agent provides only the functionality the end user requires, including all apps, menu items and settings to which the user is granted access. The configuration is gathered from the local cache that is used to ensure correct management in an offline state. RES ONE Workspace agents can connect to either a relay server or directly to the datastore.
This is a web-based management portal that allows the IT professional to troubleshoot what is happening in the workspace. It has usage tracking capabilities that offers visibility across the workspace and acts as a service desk tool to help ease the workload resting on IT.
Check out what’s in the latest releases of RES ONE Workspace.
