Server Load Balancing made easy With Parallels RAS!

server load balancingWith cloud computing technology revolutionizing IT, businesses are now required to provide virtual desktops and applications to remote users readily. The increased traffic makes it difficult for organizations to maintain high availability of resources. Here is where server load balancing comes into the picture.

Load balancing is the process of distributing the workload among two or more servers for better performance and high availability of application delivery.
The days when Domain Name Service (DNS) Redirection was used for load balancing are gone. With multiple DNS requests and exploding online traffic, DNS redirection does not serve this purpose anymore.

The Challenges of Load Balancing

Innovation is continuous in IT. Today, high availability and scalability are not enough. Businesses need a centralized platform that securely performs server load balancing while reducing the complexity of the process. A comprehensive application and desktop delivery solution is required.

Today, most load balancing solutions have a complex installation setup. For instance, in Windows Server 2016, the load balancer is not enabled by default; you have to install NLB components to use the load balancing features. It is not easy to install these additional components and configure them. IT administrators need expert knowledge about virtualization concepts. In addition to routing the traffic among servers, the load balancing tool should automatically reroute the traffic when one server fails.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) is the right solution in this case!

Parallels RAS Solution

Parallels RAS is a complete application delivery solution. First of all, the Parallels RAS installation and configuration is simple and easy. Using the step-by-step wizards, you can quickly set up the software. Server load balancing is enabled by default.

The best thing about Parallels RAS is that it checks server availability before forwarding a connection. The automatic failover protection is another useful feature: the software reroutes the traffic to other servers when one server fails, and user sessions are not interrupted during this migration. It supports round-robin or resource-based server load balancing.

With automatic session reconnection, better scalability, fault tolerance, and uninterrupted availability Parallels RAS is a comprehensive application delivery tool for businesses of all sizes.
