A MED-V workspace is the desktop environment in which end users interact with the virtual machine provided by MED-V. The MED-V workspace is created and customized by the administrator. It consists of an image and the policy, which defines the rules and functionality of the MED-V workspace. Multiple MED-V workspaces can be created, each customized with its own configuration, settings, and rules. A user, group, or multiple users or groups can be associated with each MED-V workspace, thereby making the MED-V workspace available only for the associated user's or group's computers.
