While the review praised the straightforward configuration process, it also appreciated the powerful features found in the console. Posey highlighted the console’s icons and tabs that demonstrated extensive user controls, including critical Parallels RAS functions such as printer and scanner redirection, load balancing, reporting, and more.

The review also shared the ambitious design goals for the upcoming versions of Parallels RAS. In addition to scalability and performance enhancement, the next iteration of Parallels RAS will upgrade the end user experience on mobile devices.

“With the immediate future in mind, the next iteration of Parallels RAS blends the user interface of Parallels Access with the power of the Android and iOS Parallels Clients,” said Posey. “This combination aims to provide mobile users with the best mobile experience available on the market.”
