Desktop Virtualization Solutions Play a Role in the New Remote Work Era

Hybrid working scenarios are now a reality, and desktop virtualization is trending. This is because desktop virtualization allows organizations to centralize the management of their IT infrastructures while enhancing the security of enterprise resources.

However, with the accelerating adoption of cloud computing, organizations want solutions that can integrate and simplify the delivery of virtual workload in the cloud. If a business can get the desktop virtualization solution right, its hybrid working model can have significant benefits.

For example, it could cut down costs associated with office space and enable the organization to meet its sustainability goals. Providing hybrid working as a standard can also help the company recruit and retain the best talent out there, as evidence increasingly shows that employees value flexible working styles.

Parallels RAS is designed to support hybrid working environments and distributed teams. As an all-in-one VDI solution, Parallels RAS grants access to the same applications and desktops that employees are familiar with—whether they’re in their physical offices or are working remotely.

IT administrators can leverage Parallels RAS to secure and simplify the provisioning, de-provisioning, and remote management of corporate resources. Parallels RAS is also cloud-ready, supporting on-premises, public, and hybrid cloud deployments.

Most importantly, Parallels RAS seamlessly integrates and extends Azure Virtual Desktop, enabling organizations to provision and manage virtual workloads quickly from a single pane of glass.
