A resource specifies an agent machine where job steps can be executed. Resources can be grouped into a "pool", also know as a "resource pool." CloudBees CD/RO supports two types of resources:
Standard— specifies a machine running the CloudBees CD/RO agent on one of the supported agent platforms
Proxy— requires SSH keys for authentication. You can create proxy resources (agents and targets) for CloudBees CD/RO to use on numerous other remote platforms/hosts that exist in your environment.
