Overall Satisfaction with Parallels Remote Application Server

We use Parallels RAS for application and desktop virtualization. Connection through a heavy client and an HTML client allows us to serve specific user profiles personalizing user experience and accessibility. The RAS GW feature allows us to cope with IT security issues concerning applications confined in special virtual networks, while the VDI feature allows us to prepare desktops on the shelf for developers.
  • HTML 5 client
  • VDI on the shelf
  • Load balancing
  • Heavy client: limit usage of special ports that might be blocked by corporate network policies.
  • RAS: limit usage of special ports that might be blocked by corporate network policies.
  • VDI creation from templates: performances.
  • Productivity increased due to multi-platform accessibility.
  • Consistent with our digital platform of the future.
  • Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenDesktop)
Citrix Virtual Apps has too many constraints to integrate into our corporate network.
Yes, we definitely use this feature.
Yes, we definitely use this feature. I would say, it's the most interesting for our organization.
Very important. All our infrastructure is running on Type 1 Hypervisors.
We haven't figured out yet how secure it is. Tests are ongoing. But definitely this is paramount for the infrastructure deployment.
Best virtualization technology applicable in our infrastructure, great HTML 5 experience providing high versatility to access the IT infrastructure from everywhere on any device.
