In prior posts I shared out the CIRA (Client Initiated Remote Access) technology.  Since the release is coming closer it's time to start talking about what this means for the IT shop and what the exact touch points are.   here is a quick flow that shows the touch points, whic highlights this new MPS (Management Presence Server), which sits in your DMZ and acts like a proxy between the client and the management console.   this is that final mile of connecting your notebooks when they are out of your corporate enterprise.   I listed out the limitations in my last post that I reference below. 

 

(note:  Thanks to Kyle in Brand Promise Validation for this great flow..)
