Many organizations use in-house applications that only run on legacy OSes and hardware. If your organization has such applications, it’s likely that you won’t be able to use those with Microsoft RDS. With Parallels RAS, you can easily publish legacy applications without the server OS restriction of Microsoft RDS. Learn more »
Streamline Installation and Deployment
Take the complexity out of Microsoft RDS deployment and quickly set up your environment with Parallels RAS in a few clicks. The Parallels RAS Console, an advanced centralized management tool, streamlines the deployment of farm components by automating the installation and configuration process.
RD Session Host Template
Parallels RAS allows you to streamline the deployment of a new RDSH host by allowing the IT administrator to create a VDI-based RDSH server template. The template will dynamically create either an RDS host when the farm load rises, or it will remove or disable/switch an RDS host to idle when the farm load goes down. Learn more »
Single Management Console
Using the Parallels RAS Console, IT administrators can manage, monitor, and scale the farm infrastructure. Even when installing new components or configuring a multiple site environment, IT administrators have straightforward control over their environment.
Auto-Deployment of RDS Role
The Parallels Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration Wizard guides administrators to set up a Windows server from which applications will be published. The RDSH is added to the server farm in a few easy steps.
The administrator selects an available server discovered in the network or added manually using an IP address or server name. The wizard can detect if the RDS role is enabled on a remote server; if the RDS role is not enabled, the Wizard can install it.
Enhance Application and Desktop Delivery
Parallels RAS enhances Microsoft RDS through a set of tools, allowing administrators to provide a better experience for their users.
Allow employees to use their local printers. Relying just on Microsoft RDS technology, this can be a complex and often unsuccessful process. Parallels RAS overcomes this limitation, providing an out-of-the-box universal drive to instantly enable local printing by a seamless printing redirection. Learn more »
Server Load Balancing
The Microsoft Remote Desktop connection broker manages the distribution between the servers in the farm. However, it has limited capability, only allowing the distribution of the connections based on session count and server weight. Parallels RAS load balances the traffic between the servers based on user sessions, memory, application usage, and CPU utilization, significantly improving the overall performance. Learn more »
Gateways High Availability Load Balance (HALB)
With Microsoft RDS, Network Load Balancing (NLB) can be used to load balance the network traffic among multiple gateways. However, on top of adding the complexity of managing an extra component, it does not guarantee the high availability of the service. Parallels RAS HALB provides full service redundancy, checking the health of the gateways before forwarding a connection. It can be easily managed on the Parallels RAS Console and allows SSL off loaders. Learn more »RAS is available in Cloud Server RAS.Contact us to find out our latest offers!
