White Paper: Parallels
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) can help many large-scale business and organizations simplify client image management, improve datasecurity, and enable remote connectivity from any device and, in some cases, provide some cost savings.
Most traditional VDI and application publishing software solutions are very complex, requiring several weeks to implement and full time system administrators to manage.
For customers looking to achieve superior VDI performance without the high cost and complexity of traditional hardware and software, the HPE Hyper Converged 250 combined with Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) provides a turnkey approach.
This document is intended for those IT decision makers as well as architects and implementation personnel who want to understand a Parallels and HPE approach to client virtualization and benefit from a pretested solution.
The reader should have a solid understanding of client virtualization, familiarity with both Parallels products and VMware® vSphere products, and an understanding of sizing/characterization concepts and limitations in client virtualization environments.
Application delivery is essential to the work environment. Businesses of all sizes need to have constant access to their applications, to keep the wheel turning, whether in the office, or while working remotely. The primal responsibility of the IT segment of any business is to ensure that business applications are securely, reliably and efficiently available to end-users, regardless of the device, OS and platform they use. Application delivery offers a centralized management system which enables you to effectively monitor and manage the entire infrastructure from a single dashboard.
