Overall Satisfaction with Parallels Remote Application Server

Parallels RAS is used by various clients whom we are dealing with right now and we highly recommend it when customers are looking for solutions for publishing their applications and remote access. Due to the current epidemic situation we highly recommend Parallels RAS which is a robust and versatile proven solution to provide un-interrupted local experience with published applications and remote access.
  • Easy server setup and configuration.
  • You can use Parallels on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android.
  • User experience is great, from image quality to input response.
  • Printer configuration done easily using Universal Printing.
  • Some improvement can be done managing open sessions.
  • Effectively configure idle disconnection times.
  • Ability to add applications from shared resources.
  • Better ROI than other solutions in the market.
  • Citrix Virtual Apps (formerly XenApp)
Simple and powerful administrative tools to manage users, groups, and the publishing of environments.
While both have their pros and cons, they each hold a specific purpose. Businesses need to decide which solution is the right one for their virtualization requirements, taking into consideration their current and future needs. Parallels Remote Application Server allows businesses to deploy both technologies RDS and VDI without additional costs, which saves IT administrators from making a difficult choice at the very start of their migration project.
Parallels RAS allows organizations to offer to telework, increasing employee satisfaction and talent retention. A seamless virtual workspace experience positively influences employees’ assessment of both the company and their jobs. Flexible hours are a plus for many employees, allowing them to take care of their family without decreasing their output at work.
Parallels RAS integrates with various type of technologies such as Hyper-V, VMware ESXi and HCIs which enable flexibility at customer's end to go with any solution and publish their application or VDI without taking into notice about the underlying technology.
Parallels RAS can work with granular permission policies, multi-factor authentication, encryption, user access control, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to secure the envoironment. This gives you an extra layer of protection for your Parallels account data against unauthorized access. This is particularly important if you are using remote computers with Parallels Access, or being an administrator of business account.
Easy to deploy and manage!
