Shifting to Parallels Remote Application Server 15

What comes to mind when you think of Parallels? Probably, our most well-known product, Parallels Desktop for Mac. But did you know we also have other powerful software tools? In this blog, I will be talking about Parallels Remote Application Server and the differences between versions 14 and 15.

Shifting to Parallels Remote Application Server 15

Parallels Remote Application Server is an integrated solution to virtualize your applications, desktops, and data. It publishes applications and delivers remote and virtual desktops to any device in your network, anywhere, and provides an application delivery and virtual desktop solution for Microsoft Terminal Services and Windows Remote Desktop Services. It supports all major hypervisors for virtual desktop publishing, and allows connections through a browser as well as from a variety of client systems that includes Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, Chrome, and IOS using the free Parallels Client.

Similar to Parallels Desktop for Mac or Parallels Access, Parallels Remote Application Server has its own set of features, which change and improve from one version to the next. Let’s go through versions 14 and 15 of Parallels Remote Application Server and see what’s new and what’s been improved.

Here are a few cool features of version 14:

  1. Outstanding reporting engine for comprehensive monitoring activity
  2. Innovative network load balancer to manage inbound connections
  3. Firewall-friendly desktop shadowing.; further simplification in desktop management: automatic firewall client setting and updated graphical user interface
  4. Redirection of Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)-enabled devices

I’ve tested it myself several times, and I personally think it’s simply awesome!
