Features of Parallels RAS

Windows Virtual Desktop Integration

Windows Virtual Desktop Integration

Your customers can extend Windows Virtual Desktop capabilities by integrating, configuring and unifying all virtual workloads and resources from a centralized console. Integrate Parallels RAS deployments with Windows Virtual Desktop, delivering a single solution to end users.

Simplified Access with Parallels HTML5 Client

Simplified Access with Parallels HTML5 Client

Enable your customers to access applications and desktops from anywhere, at any time, from any HTML5 browser. The Parallels HTML5 Client is an OS-independent, web-based application that provides an alternative method for users to securely access resources without having to install the Parallels® Client on their personal devices.

Auto-Provisioning and Auto-Scaling

Auto-Provisioning and Auto-Scaling

Maintain high and consistent performance for virtual applications and desktops by automatically monitoring and scaling on-demand computing resources based on templates. Parallels RAS can dynamically create, remove, release and load balance Windows-based OSs on pre-defined criteria, ensuring sudden load spikes are easily managed without any manual action required.

White Labeling (Customization)

White Labeling (Customization)

Provide your customers with a unified and personalized “look and feel” for their applications by customizing Parallels® HTML5 Client Portal and Windows Client user interface, enabling the same working environment no matter the device or location.

Multi-Tenancy

Multi-Tenancy

Implement a cost-effective solution that can easily manage multiple isolated tenants in the same Parallels RAS infrastructure. Maximize resource usage by sharing the access layer, including gateways and load balancers, among independent Parallels RAS Farms or Sites representing tenants while keeping data segregated and secure.

REST API and PowerShell

REST API and PowerShell

Save time and costs while maximizing resources, by enabling the automation of common, complex and repetitive tasks using REST APIs and/or PowerShell cmdlets. Enable easier integration of third-party tools and technologies with scheduling and workflow applications into the Parallels RAS ecosystem.

Provide additional layers of security for your customer data by using multifactor authentication before granting access to published applications and desktops. Parallels RAS integrates with third-party security solutions using RADIUS or others such as Deepnet DualShield, Gemalto’s SafeNet and Azure MFA (NPS). Additionally, Smart cards are supported.

Ultra-Fast Log-in with Session Pre-launch

Ultra-Fast Log-in with Session Pre-launch

Enable users to login and access their applications or desktops faster, increasing productivity by leveraging AI-based session pre-launch technology. Through Parallels RAS machine learning capabilities, user login habits are analyzed and sessions are pre-launched in memory, significantly reducing login time while distributing the back-end workload to prevent log-on storms during peak hours.

Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Provide your customers with a flexible and agile approach to meet business requirements in shifting to the cloud by supporting on-premises, hybrid, multi and public cloud deployments.

The web-based Management Portal enhances mobility, enabling administrators to work on-the-go.

High Availability Load Balancer (HALB)

High Availability Load Balancer (HALB)

Reduce the possibility of your customers experiencing downtime by leveraging HALB, an included component that provides load balancing for Parallels RAS Secure Client Gateways, ensuring that loads are distributed among the gateways. Provide consistent user experience while mitigating downtime due to gateway failures.

Legacy Application Support and Containerization

Legacy Application Support and Containerization

Manage and deliver legacy and newer applications simultaneously by leveraging the support capabilities of Windows Server OS (2008/ R2, 2012/R2, 2016 & 2019).
