MUH with VMSS to protect AVD (VDI in Azure)
this post will show a use case for my past post about ID-Sharing.
Customer with VDI solution uses our MUH agent to identify users behind the same machine and apply rules based on their identity, this is great and uses the agent to communicate with a GW that stores the identity and ports used by a specific user, the issue is when we are in the Cloud and a VMSS, the agent can communicate only to one GW so VMSS environments are an issue, so we can use the ID Sharing mechanism to connect the MUH agent to one GW that only will serve as Collector and Share the learned Identities from this one to the VMSS members, this can be automated with a simple script that I shared in the past (past post).
Here a simple diagram from my demo.
and a video showing all the stuffs
meanwhile there is connectivity the place of the collector/sharing GW is not relevant, in this scenario I place on-prem to avoid the use of rented compute in the cloud, since will be static and no benefit from any cloud feature, also because normally the customer will have some on-prem devices, in case this is not true or they are allowed to pay for a collector machine in the cloud, they can place it.
Nice work, on a related note I know many have been waiting for the Identity Awareness APIs coming in R81.20.
