Parallels RAS and Scale Computing Deliver an Enhanced VDI Experience

  • A turnkey virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution that’s simple to deploy and maintain.
  • Support as your business grows and changes—while helping keep costs under control.
  • A consistent user experience across virtual applications and desktops.

Scale Computing with Parallels RAS provides seamless application delivery while reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) and improving security.

Why Choose VDI?

Many organizations benefit from VDI as it helps simplify IT management, increase data security, enable remote connectivity from any device, and save costs. However, many traditional VDI and application publishing software solutions are quite complex, requiring several weeks of setup and management by full-time system administrators.

The cost and complexity of VDI is greatly reduced thanks to the introduction of software defined, hyperconverged platforms like the Scale Computing HC3 platform and an affordable comprehensive virtual desktop and application publishing solution: Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS).

An Overview of Parallels RAS

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) is an all-in-one application delivery and VDI solution that enables users to work remotely from anywhere, on any device, at any time.

This cloud-ready software empowers organizations to:

  • Centralize IT infrastructure management.
  • Integrate with Azure Virtual Desktop.
  • Streamline multi-cloud deployment.
  • Improve IT process automation.

Its flexible and scalable architecture enables organizations to adapt to critical business demands quickly. Key benefits include:

  • Outstanding user experience (UX) on any device.
  • Enhanced data security.
  • IT agility and business readiness.
  • Easy deployment, configuration, and maintenance.

Scale Computing HC3 Platform

Scale Computing is an industry leader in virtualization, edge computing, and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions. Its flagship product, HC3, consolidates computing, networking, storage, and virtualization services into ready-to-install nodes.

The HC3 virtualization platform is designed to cost effectively deliver simplicity, availability, and scalability in a single appliance. HC3 uses Red Hat’s Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) as its hypervisor. As such, any platform that can communicate with KVM, such as Windows or Linux, can also run on HC3.

IT administrators can set up HC3 in under an hour, deploying new virtual machines (VMs) in as little as 15 seconds. The platform is a perfect fit for VDI environments across all organizations because of its ease-of-use, security, and scalability options.
