Scale Computing announced that Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) 18 is now available and optimized on Scale Computing HC3. When combined with Parallels RAS, Scale Computing HC3 enables administrators to rapidly provision and manage virtual machines (VM) along with RDSH sessions and applications centrally from the Parallels RAS Console to make Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions faster, more affordable and easier to use.
Parallels RAS automatically generates and deploys VDI desktops on demand, enabling administrators to create and deploy guest VMs on the fly and create a master virtual desktop once and rapidly clone hundreds of virtual desktops on their HC3 Cluster. They can quickly and securely deliver Windows applications and desktops, and Parallels RAS integrates with Windows Virtual Desktop to provide unified workload and resource management. Parallels RAS provides a simple, consistent user experience on any device (including smartphones and laptops), from any location.
“Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) makes VDI solutions quick to deploy, easy to manage and affordable—improving security, centralizing management and reducing IT workloads,” says Nick Dobrovolskiy, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support at Parallels. “The combination of Parallels RAS 18 and Scale Computing HC3 autonomous infrastructure delivers increased options, customizations and resources to IT organizations for new levels of infrastructure flexibility and employee productivity.”
Scale Computing HC3 is a hyperconverged and edge IT infrastructure platform that combines servers, storage and virtualization capabilities into a single solution to make IT infrastructure easier for organizations of every size. The platform works exceptionally well in VDI environments across all verticals and organizations requiring simple, secure and low-maintenance IT infrastructure options.
“The ability for administrators to deploy, manage and grow their VDI environments easily is more important than ever in today’s work-from-anywhere environments,” notes Craig Theriac, VP Product Management at Scale Computing. “The integration of Parallels RAS 18 with Scale Computing HC3 advances the ability to provision VDI VM’s easier and faster than legacy VDI solutions at a cost-effective price point that meets our customer’s needs.”
