Why Move to the Cloud?
Global Expansion
Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) in the cloud provides the unique opportunity to offer employees and business partners faster, scalable, and reliable access to corporate applications virtually anywhere, across the globe
Quick Deployment & Seamless Product Roll-Out
The built-in automation capabilities of Parallels RAS simplify deployment and configuration of it in the cloud. Parallels RAS includes prebuilt virtual machine templates and configuration wizards, allowing a Parallels RAS appliance to be fully configured in under 30 minutes. In addition, Parallels RAS offers easy and seamless user enrolment, ensuring no loss of productivity when moving local applications and desktops to virtual instances.
On-Demand Scalability
Enable reliable and effective business operations as your organization's workload scales up or down. With Parallels RAS in the cloud, all additional Parallels RAS components—publishing agents, remote desktop services server, hypervisors, and gateways—can be deployed instantly using the unlimited flexibility of the cloud.
Hybrid Cloud Deployment
Parallels RAS supports hybrid deployment between on-premise and Azure-based resources. A hybrid cloud provides businesses with flexibility when computing needs change by allowing workloads to be distributed between a private and Microsoft Azure cloud. With Parallels RAS, different scenarios can be easily implemented, from adding terminal servers to handle extra end users, to making cost-effective failover virtual infrastructure.

The easiest way to deliver and manage virtual Windows applications to any device!

Manage Microsoft RDS and VDI with ease while benefitting from a better mobile experience and also reducing costs.

Parallels RAS provides access to desktop applications as if they were native applications on iPhone®, iPad®, and Android devices, making your employees truly productive on the go. With Parallels RAS mobile clients, employees are able to use native iOS and Android controls to interact with desktop applications, and smart optimizations allow the use of desktop applications even on the small screens of mobile phones.

No third-party or expensive add-ons are needed; universal printer redirection, gateway high availability, reporting, and powerful load balancing are ready to use straight out of the box—from a central interface. IT staff can focus on core duties without dealing with unnecessary complexity.

Parallels RAS is easy to deploy, manage, and maintain. Complex administrative tasks are streamlined using wizards, providing administrators the most efficient path to application delivery. A graphic editor allows visualization of the complete deployment and architecture blueprint. Setting up RDS servers, publishing virtual applications, and enrolling new users are all achieved in just a few clicks.

Parallels RAS is fully interoperable with Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services™ (AWS). It supports Windows Server 2016 and all the improvements related to cloud integration.

Designed to be More Reliable, Easier, and Flexible

Deliver applications to remote users and mobile devices in a seamless and easy-to-manage way. The user can continue to use the same files as if they were on their office workstation. Parallels RAS is easy to configure; with the drag-and-drop functionality, publishing an application is simple.

Regain up to 80% of the time normally used to configure and manage desktop clients. Parallels RAS allows you to transform any Windows client into a secure and fully managed workstation. Existing company computers can be used "as is," immediately delivering remote desktop and virtual applications.

Load balancing delivers high performance across your organization, allowing gateways and servers to work at high availability. Parallels RAS easily configures the infrastructure to your load needs by optimizing your resources.

Remote Desktop–VDI
Mix the most popular hypervisors with Parallels RAS to deliver seamless application virtualization and publish remote desktops. Manage virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI) or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) independently and easily.

Reporting
The Parallels RAS reporting tools provide an extensive overview of your infrastructure. Take advantage of real-time monitoring with hundreds of preconfigured reports, covering everything from applications to remote session activity. Support your team by anticipating when they will need you.

Universal Printing and Scanning
Allow your users to print and scan from any device: desktop, thin client, iPad, iPhone, Android or HTML5 browser. Universal Printing and Scanning is auto-configured, without any extra action required by the IT administrator. Users can print and scan on all available printers and scanners, without having to install a driver.
