Parallels Partners with Ubuntu to Seamlessly Deliver Windows Applications and Desktops to Linux

Parallels Remote Application Server delivers  Windows virtual desktops and applications hosted on VMware, Microsoft Terminal Server and Hyper-V to Ubuntu desktops through Parallels Client for Linux.

Dallas, TX, September 29, 2011: Parallels today announced its recent membership in the Canonical Partner Program, which recognizes leading solution providers capable of providing cutting edge technologies to Ubuntu users. To receive membership recognition, solution providers must prove consistent success in interfacing with Ubuntu users and successfully executing complex installations. As a result of membership, partners receive software, hardware and implementation support, with accredited partners able to access sales, marketing, technical and support resources directly from Canonical. As a fully-accredited Ubuntu Software Partner, Parallels is proud to offer seamless application and desktop delivery, via the new Parallles Remote Application Server, to Ubuntu based installations of all sizes.

Paul Oh, Business Development Director, Corporate Services at Canonical comments, “Canonical is seeing real momentum in recruiting partners, such as Parallels, that demonstrate the necessary expertise and knowledge to support adopters of Ubuntu through set-up and ongoing services. Some of this traction can be attributed to the growing popularity of Ubuntu within the enterprise at the core of many desktop, server and cloud deployments.”

“We are pleased to be recognized as an accredited Ubuntu Software Partner,” stated Nikolaos Makris, CEO of Parallels. “That we have been recognized for excellence in yet another technology category is a tribute to the constantly-expanding compatibility of the Parallels product line, most recently with the new Parallels Remote Application Server and our extremely popular Android and iOS clients. Our current customers can testify to Parallels’s commitment to seamlessly interfacing with a wide range of technologies, to more effectively support our VARs and customers alike.”
