Discover Remote Infrastructure Management

Mobility is exploding. Employees expect to work from any location, at any time, from any device. The distribution of businesses across different geographies and the involvement of teams from diverse locations have resulted in dispersed IT infrastructures. While this presents companies with attractive means of enhancing productivity and flexibility, it also leads to various challenges in infrastructure management.

Remote infrastructure management centralizes the administration of IT infrastructure. This allows IT teams to achieve greater coordination and simplified maintenance when it comes to infrastructure management. An efficient remote infrastructure management solution can also help businesses achieve significant cost savings, increased productivity, and reduced risks. In this post, we explore remote infrastructure management, why organizations should use it, and its benefits.

Definition of Remote Infrastructure Management

Remote infrastructure management refers to managing an organization’s IT infrastructure—in part or entirely—from a remote site. It allows IT teams to provide continuous availability of IT services through remedial measures that do not disrupt business operations.

For example, IT teams can undertake on-premises repairs and maintenance only when a hardware failure occurs. Otherwise, all other IT administration operations, such as deployment and management of enterprise resources, get done via a centralized solution and from a remote location.

Remote infrastructure management services can add value to organizations by enhancing service availability, increasing efficiencies, and minimizing costs. For example, linking remote infrastructure management services to cloud orchestration solutions and other resources can improve performance efficiencies, allowing IT teams to focus on other productive tasks within the organization.

Uses for Remote Infrastructure Management

A few years back, the prospect of letting another company manage an organization’s IT infrastructure seemed either inconceivable or incredibly risky. However, this has changed with increasing remote workforce demands, and many companies are outsourcing remote infrastructure management for IT security, storage, and support.

Below are some examples of remote infrastructure management services that companies can outsource to managed service providers (MSPs):

The Benefits of Remote Infrastructure Management

An organization can derive many benefits from a well-managed remote infrastructure monitoring solution. Below are a few of the benefits:

The Challenges of Remote Infrastructure Management

While remote infrastructure management is crucial for a modern business, there are a host of challenges that you must address to optimize the infrastructure efficiently. Let’s take a look at some of these challenges.

Remote Infrastructure Management with Parallels RAS

Remote monitoring and management solutions have existed for many years in one form or another. However, the growing demands of remote working have brought remote infrastructure management into sharp focus. As an organization, you need to support a growing remote workforce with a cost-effective, scalable, flexible, and secure IT infrastructure.

As an industry leader in desktop virtualization, Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) has empowered many organizations to deliver virtual applications and desktops to their employees securely in a cost-effective and scalable manner. Parallels RAS is the most reliable remote infrastructure management solution that IT teams can use from a central location to monitor and restrict access to IT infrastructure on-demand with auto-provisioning mechanisms.

Parallels RAS supports on-premises, public, and hybrid cloud deployments, simplifying the migration process to the cloud. The platform can effectively deliver corporate resources to different cloud-computing services and provide a single console, complete with load balancing and scalability when it comes to multiple clouds.

The centralized console also allows IT administrators to use Windows Remote Management Tools to manage servers and remote PCs. For example, IT administrators can perform Computer Management, Remote Desktop Connection, Service Management, PowerShell, and other tasks efficiently from a single Parallels RAS Console.
