The Google Admin console is used to set up an organizational unit, users, and to configure Parallels Desktop related properties. To perform these tasks, you must be a super admin or an admin with sufficient privileges in the Google Admin console.
Please note that Chrome Enterprise Upgrade licenses are required and can be acquired either with Chrome Enterprise devices or separately. Learn more.

Microsoft Windows

To prepare a Parallels Desktop Windows image to be deployed on Chromebooks, you need a Windows 10 disc image (ISO file) and a Windows license. The ISO image can be downloaded from the Microsoft website. Enterprise customers can use their existing Windows licenses and agreement with Microsoft.

Corporate storage server

To deploy a Windows virtual machine image on user devices, you need a corporate storage server from where the image can be downloaded to individual Chromebooks in your organization via HTTP or HTTPS. CDN is recommended for very large deployments.
