Parallels RAS makes VDI quick, easy and affordable, enabling organizations to deliver fully functioning virtual Windows desktops and applications to any device. On this webinar you will discover:
Simplified desktop management with VDI pools, pre-built templates, clones, linked clones, and persistent guest control.
Increase performance with the out-of-the-box resource-based server Load Balancing and auto-scaling on demand.
Secure data by adding additional protection layers such as 2FA/MFA, Smart card access, Client Policies, and granular access filtering.
Parallels RAS is a comprehensive application virtualization and VDI solution that enables employees to access applications and desktops from any device or platform. Straightforward to deploy and maintain, Parallels RAS supports Microsoft RDSH, Citrix XenServer, VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix Acropolis (AHV), and KVM.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions offer several benefits to organizations, including improved security, centralized desktop management, and reduced IT workload. Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) makes VDI quick, easy, and affordable. It enables organizations to deliver fully functioning virtual Windows desktops and applications to employees. Parallels RAS allows users to be productive anywhere by providing a Windows desktop–like experience on any device. Parallels RAS simplifies the VDI deployment.
The VM template function is used to deploy the VDI hosts for the clients, allowing the IT administrator to set a preconfigured alive timer or set a persistent session that needs to be removed manually.
After the predefined time expires, the VM image is deleted from the Parallels RAS server, removing the storage space that was reserved for it. That way IT administrators can have automatic management of the storage space used by the VDI hosts.
Pools offer administrators more flexibility when managing an extensive number of guest VMs, especially when they are implemented in large company infrastructures. IT administrators can set multiple virtual desktop templates on their farm and share them between user groups. Each group can have a virtual desktop template with specific requirements, such as document-processing tools for finance or image-processing tools for creative, thus simplifying account management on the IT side.
Parallels RAS includes a Test Guest VM Template wizard, which automates VM testing and VM deployment to ensure that custom-built templates work smoothly, reducing the administrator's manual tasks.
The wizard test templates can create a working instance of a guest VM to ensure they have been created and configured correctly. This gives the administrator peace of mind knowing that the templates are fully deployable.
Parallels RAS supports Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Citrix XenServer, and hyperconverged infrastructure such as Nutanix Acropolis, HPE, and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). Parallels RAS can create and manage VMs from different hypervisors simultaneously, offering administrators an extended flexibility when deploying VDI solutions.
Parallels RAS automatically generates and deploys VDI desktops on demand, using customized templates. This allows administrators to create and deploy guest VMs on the fly, saving a great deal of time. Create a virtual desktop once and replicate it as many times as needed.
Using linked clones, the IT team can simply copy the files already available on the virtual disk at the time of the VM snapshot instead of launching a whole new full VM. This allows multiple virtual machines to use the same software installation, also saving disk space.
Parallels RAS is a cost-effective VDI and application delivery solution that allows employees to access and use applications, desktops, and data from any device. It’s easy to deploy, migrate, configure, and maintain. It improves security and compliance requirements and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO).
Provide users with instant and secure access to applications and data on any device. Allow Windows native apps to interact with iOS and Android touch gestures.
Applications, data, and desktops are accessible from any HTML5 browser without local Parallels clients installed.
Help replace paperwork with a simple and reliable IT system allowing your organizations to securely access ERPs from any device and any location without compromising HIPAA, PCI-DSS or other data regulation policies.
Deliver user performance by effectively distributing end user traffic and workload across multiple gateways and RD session hosts.
Parallels RAS components can be deployed in multi-active/passive or multi-active/active mode, and are load balanced, reducing the risk of downtime while providing a seamless end-user experience.
Allow users to print documents and forms from devices of choice: Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, Android, or HTML5 browsers.
