Parallels Partners with Scale Computing Through OEM Agreement to Deliver Enhanced VDI Experience

May 3rd, 2021—Indianapolis, IN and Bellevue, WA—Parallels®, a global leader in cross-platform solutions, has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnership with Scale Computing. The partnership will see Scale Computing—a global leader in virtualization, edge computing and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions—integrate Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) into HyperCore 3 (HC3).

This initiative helps customers build a cost-effective, secure and easy-to-use virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) experience by offering them a consistent experience across virtual applications and desktops. This announcement also expands on both companies’ goal of providing users with simple, out-of-the-box solutions that help them build and manage IT as a service (ITaaS).

Scale Computing is an industry leader in virtualization, edge computing and HCI solutions. Its flagship product, HC3, consolidates computing, networking, storage and virtualization services into ready-to-install nodes. HC3 uses Red Hat’s Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) as its hypervisor. As such, any platform that can communicate with KVM, such as Windows or Linux, can also run on HC3.

IT administrators can set up HC3 in under an hour, deploying new virtual machines (VMs) in as little as 15 seconds. The platform is a perfect fit for VDI environments across all organizations because of its ease-of-use, security and scalability options.

Parallels RAS is an all-in-one VDI provider that organizations can leverage to supply corporate resources to remote employees. These employees can use any preferred device, including a PC, Mac computer, iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone, to access remote applications and desktops.

Parallels RAS is cloud-ready, enabling organizations to host the solution either on-premises or on public clouds such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS). It also supports hybrid cloud environments, enabling flexible workload distribution and failover. Additionally, Parallels RAS is simple to set up. In as little as one day, a business can be up and running, delivering corporate resources to any device with a free, 30-day Parallels RAS trial.

“The ability for administrators to deploy, manage and grow their VDI environments easily is more important than ever in today’s work-from-anywhere environments,” said Craig Theriac, vice president of product management at Scale Computing. “The integration of Parallels RAS 18 with Scale Computing HC3 advances the ability to provision VDI VM’s easier and faster than legacy VDI solutions at a cost-effective price point that meets our customers’ needs.”

“Scale Computing leads the industry in storage architecture innovation, hyperconverged infrastructure and cloud-based disaster recovery,” said Derek Wyszynski, director of North and Latin American sales for Parallels.

“Our strengthened partnership underscores the value that the Parallels Remote Application Server platform brings to Scale Computing as it strives to provide its customers highly available, scalable, reliable and simple-to-use computer systems,” Wyszynski continued. “In the post-COVID world, where hybrid work environments are the ‘new normal,’ this enhanced collaboration will bring the power of our combined Parallels/Scale solution to enterprises all over the world.”
