Here is an explanation of some of the terms commonly used with Morro Edge.
Core LAN (C-LAN)
- A LAN containing corporate resources that should be available to devices on the E-LANs, such as an AD server, license server, etc. This can exist in the cloud (such as Azure) or in a physical office.
Edge LAN (E-LAN)
- A secure, isolated LAN that is routeable to the Core LAN. For example, a set of PCs connected to a switch that is connected to the E-LAN port on an HC device would form an E-LAN. These PCs will be able to access the resources in the C-LAN. Morro Edge setups will generally have multiple E-LANs and a smaller number of C-LANs.
Site LAN (S-LAN)
- The non-Morro Edge network of a LAN that is routeable to the Internet. For example, in a home office, the S-LAN may consist of all devices attached directly to the router.
Regional WAN (R-WAN)
- The WAN containing all Core and Edge devices that make up a Morro Edge system. Currently, each account is limited to one R-WAN.
VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) or Compute Elements
- Morro Edge devices can be configured with VDI, which is a copy of Windows 10 Pro running in a VM on the device. Users can access the Windows VM using RDP and treat it as a full Windows PC with access to the Morro Edge network. This may also be referred to as Compute or Compute Elements.
- The gateway that routes network traffic to the R-WAN hub.
