Parallels RAS & Microsoft Azure

Parallels RAS deployed on Azure Cloud Service provides employees with highly secure, fast, and reliable access to virtual applications and desktops worldwide due to Azure’s global presence.

Parallels RAS on Azure Cloud Service provides the unique opportunity to offer employees and business partners faster, scalable, and reliable access to corporate applications across the entire globe.

Parallels RAS is an industry-leading, cost-effective solution for virtual application and desktop delivery. Combine that with Azure's OPEX-friendly, pay-as-you-go model that already includes virtual hardware, Microsoft licensing, and a range of advanced services like disaster recovery, and you instantly gain the ability to reallocate a sizable portion of your budget to more pressing projects.

The built-in automation capabilities of Parallels RAS simplify its deployment and configuration in the Azure cloud. It includes prebuilt Azure virtual machine templates and configuration wizards, allowing a Parallels RAS appliance to be fully configured in under 30 minutes. In addition, the solution offers easy and seamless user enrollment, ensuring no loss of productivity when moving local applications and desktops to virtual instances.

Once Parallels RAS is deployed on Azure Cloud Service, businesses can provide employees immediate and secure access to applications, server-based desktops, data, and folders across the Internet—without complex firewall configurations. Parallels RAS on Azure provides instant access to resources on any HTML5 browser.

Maintain reliable and effective business operations even as your organization's workload for specific applications scales up or down. With Parallels RAS on Azure Cloud Service, all additional Parallels RAS components—Publishing Agents, Remote Desktop Services Server, hypervisors, and gateways—can be deployed instantly using the unlimited flexibility of the Azure cloud.

Parallels RAS on Azure Cloud Service supports full active-active redundancy and features built-in load balancing for all Parallels RAS components—Publishing Agents, gateways, and servers. This provides redundancy while preventing any application server from becoming a single point of failure, thus improving overall application availability and responsiveness.

Coming soon in Parallels RAS v17.1

Version 17.1 will support Microsoft Azure Hypervisor (VDI provider), allowing organizations to provision and scale VDI workloads on demand directly on Microsoft Azure. Enhance flexibility of VDI and RDSH deployments by mixing and matching on-premises, hybrid, multi, and public cloud environments.

Other Capabilities

We strive to make Parallels RAS the best digital desktop solution for your customers by continually improving our product. Our enhancements include white-labeling, API automation of tasks, HTML5 clientless access and centrally managing your Parallels RAS farm from a single plane of glass.

Provide your customers with a unified and personalized “look and feel” for their applications by customizing Parallels HTML5 and Windows Client user interface (UI), enabling the same working environment no matter the device or location.

Allow your customers to access applications and desktops from anywhere, at any time, on any HTML5 browser. The Parallels HTML5 Client is an OS independent web platform that provides an alternative method of accessing resources for external users and/or when it’s not possible to install any client.

Save time, costs and maximize resources by enabling the automation of common, complex and repetitive tasks using REST-API and/or PowerShell cmdlets. Allow easier integration with scheduling and workflow applications into the Parallels RAS ecosystem.

Maintain high and consistent templates (or images) for virtual applications and desktops by monitoring and scaling on-demand computing resources. Parallels RAS can dynamically create, remove, release, and load balance Windows OS based on predefined criteria, ensuring sudden load spikes are easily managed without any manual action needed.

Provide additional layers of security for your customer data by using multi-factor authentication before granting access to published applications and desktops. Parallels RAS integrates with third-party security solutions such as DualShield, SafeNet and Azure MFA. Additionally Smart cards are supported.

Allow users to login and access their desktops faster and increase productivity by leveraging Artificial intelligence (AI) based session pre-launch technology. Together with SSO, a method of controlling access to multiple software systems through a single ID and password, users only need to login once to access various systems.

Customers using a mobile device are able to access workspaces wherever they are while enjoying a consistent user experience, keeping productivity high across devices. Native gestures, multitasking and quick keyboards ensure an easy to use and local workspace–like experience for the user.

Ready out-of-the-box and easy to use Parallels RAS Universal Printing enables your customers to instantly use local printers while accessing their digital workspace, without the need to download or configure drivers.

Free up time and cut costs by centrally managing administration tasks such as deploying servers, publishing applications, monitoring resources and provide helpdesk assistance from a single pane of glass - the Parallels RAS Console.


Coming Soon in Parallels RAS

The new Parallels RAS Version 17.1 will empower SPs, MSPs and ISVs even more with its new Multi-Tenancy Architecture, SAML SSO support, VDI/RDSH direct provisioning on Microsoft Azure and AWS ELB support.

Implement a cost-effective solution that can easily manage multiple isolated farms/tenants in the same Parallels RAS infrastructure, maximizing resource usage by sharing gateways and load balancers, while keeping data segregated and secure.

Deliver better services by reducing the time spent on maintaining databases for users, while increasing security and reducing the IT overhead. Streamline the management of user identities between different organizations and allow Single Sign On (SSO) capabilities without sharing the local identity database.

Provide your customers with a flexible and agile approach in shifting to the cloud by supporting on-premises, hybrid, multi and public cloud deployments. Utilize Microsoft Azure scalability to manage RDSH and VDI infrastructure.

Use different hostnames and ports for network and application traffic, possibly required when integrating Parallels RAS with third-party load balancers, such as Amazon Web Services™ (AWS) Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). AWS ELB automatically distributes incoming application traffic and scales resources to address workload demands, increasing agility and streamlining management.
