NVIDIA GRID vPC

Nvidia GRID is the only real ready-made hardware solution available for streaming game services, 3D graphics acceleration in Virtual Desktop Infrastructures, and 3D enhanced streaming apps. Grid is also great for processing large quantities of small data-sets, such as financial, trading, science, astronomy, and much more. Grid is also well known for digital currency mining, such as Bitcoin.

Parallels RAS

Any sort of VDI or remote application delivery situations are ideal for Parallels. They provide robust high availability and load balancing capabilities so it scales incredibly well. The best part is it has a fantastic GUI with full API and Powershell integration so you can accomplish anything you require with the software. And the cost is significantly cheaper than its biggest market competitor, Citrix. It's cheaper, easier to maintain and setup and provides the same functionality. It's a product that will be growing for years to come. Their remote printing and scanning capabilities are incredibly robust as well.

Cons

NVIDIA GRID vPC

  • The cost for Nvidia GRID capable hardware is still very high, but is & has been dropping fairly rapidly.
  • Latency is a large problem for "interaction" based systems (Gaming, remote desktop use) and requires high-speed data, and hosting close to the client.
  • No real solutions for smaller businesses, but cloud hosting providers like SoftLayer are beginning to offer affordable hosted grid-capable environments.

Parallels RAS

  • Remote install is one of the coolest features, but sometimes doesn't play well with domain policies such as recommended CIS Baselines in different VLAN zones.
  • Would be nice if seamless apps showed up as dock icons in macOS the way Parallels for Desktop does.

Product has updates often from server agent to gateway console, knowledge and support on the site its easy to find and solutions and patches are always in hand. On the other hand I can barely remember the last time I had any kind of issue with the product, so mostly I just had used support to find configurations.

Nvidia invented the graphics processor, and continues to provide high quality products, even in a new industry
Craig Nash | TrustRadius Reviewer

Parallels RAS

This is so much easier to configure! We used to use the old XenApp, and getting things done on that was always a lot more difficult. The ease of configuring the apps and desktops is far superior than the older versions of XenApp. Licensing is also a breeze as you can also split up the license if you wanted to set up a secondary farm or cluster of servers.
