Application and Desktop Delivery
Publish a wide range of resources—such as applications, desktops, physical PCs, folders and data—to any user on any device.
Simply deploy and manage application and desktop delivery in a variety of environments, providing seamless service delivery and lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO).
Mix and match different operating systems and technologies
Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) is compatible with Windows Server 2008–2019, enabling access to Windows applications—including legacy ones —from anywhere. Increase infrastructure agility with a flexible architecture that supports Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) with Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Hypervisor, VMware ESXi, Nutanix Acropolis (AHV), Scale Computing HC3 and KVM.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
Parallels RAS makes VDI quick, easy and affordable. It enables organizations to deliver fully functioning virtual Windows desktops and applications that employees need. Parallels RAS allows users to be productive anywhere by providing a Windows desktop–like experience on any device. The latest version adds significant enhancements to VDI capabilities, now supporting even more hypervisors, including Nutanix Acropolis, HPE and Scale Computing HC3.
Remote Desktop Services (RDS)
Parallels RAS streamlines the deployment and management of Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), enabling administrators to quickly publish applications and desktops through the Parallels RAS Console. Overcome the limitations of Microsoft RDS and securely deliver Windows applications and desktops with a local-like experience to any device, including mobile and web browsers.
Remote PC and hosted desktop infrastructure
Parallels RAS enables administrators to provide users with access to their PC remotely when they require full administrative permissions on the move. Empower your employees to access and work on their PC from any device, regardless of the PC's physical location. Moreover, Parallels RAS allows administrators to quickly deliver dedicated remote PCs from a hosted desktop infrastructure (HDI), such as HPE Moonshot System and Atrust Remote PC Array.
Parallels RAS integrates with Turbo.net containerization technology, allowing IT administrators to package applications and their dependencies into a sandboxed container. This eliminates installations, conflicts, runtime errors, missing dependencies and legacy-compatibility issues. The applications can run on any Windows server, no matter the underlying OS. One of the major benefits is the capability to run multiple versions of the same application from the same server.
Parallels RAS integrates with Microsoft App-V, allowing administrators to publish packaged applications and reduce the need to troubleshoot application conflicts. Application updates can be delivered from a central location, streaming the delivery directly to the servers. In addition, the use of App-V’s structure RDS CALs is automatically included in the license; no separate license for RDS CALs is required.
