ThinClientServer–How To Manage Psudo Thin Clients With Parallels RAS

Formerly known as ThinClientServer, Parallels RAS Client Management console lets businesses easily upgrade legacy hardware into Windows 10 thin clients

Shrinking budgets means that IT departments are expected to do more with less, and often lack the resources to make expensive hardware upgrades. At the same time, they're also expected to maintain a secure network with all machines locked down against attacks. The heart of the problem is that legacy machines using antiquated OS, such as Windows XP, pose a security threat, but also are costly to replace. Luckily, application delivery and VDI software provide a low-cost, highly secure solution that solves allows IT departments to secure their networks machines without making expensive hardware purchases.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) streamlines management of overly burdensome, "administration-hungry" clients on your network by turning them into upgraded, secure pseudo thin clients. With the Client Management module, IT administrators can centrally manage user connections, PCs and PCs converted into pseudo thin clients. This feature saves the IT budget from unnecessary hardware purchases and infrastructure upgrades while maintaining data security across the remote network.

Thin Client overview

Thin clients are stripped-down virtual machines that are hosted on a remote server and accessed through user endpoints. Thin clients are hosted on the central server or on the cloud and use a client/server model where the client requests services or information. The end user device is only used to access shared published resources, such as applications and desktops. The benefits of thin client centralization are hardware optimization, lowered software maintenance, and improved support.
