White Paper: Parallels
VMware provides the hypervisor hosting platform to the virtualized desktop and infrastructure server instances.
The purpose of this White paper is to provide design information that describes the architecture for the Parallels Solution which is based on Parallels Remote Application Server Hosted Shared Applications (RDSH) and Parallels Hosted Virtual Desktop (HVD) FlexCast models.
The solution is built on the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, NX-3060 nodes running VMware® to support the virtualized environment .

What is Cloud Computing ?
A type of internet-based computing, Cloud computing refers to delivery of computing services over the internet or "the cloud" instead of using local storage and computing. The different computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, applications, and analytics. Cloud computing eliminates the need for hardware acquisition, maintenance, installation of software.
What is virtualization ?
Virtualization, in computing, refers to creating a virtual vision rather than an actual vision of something, which includes computer network resources, virtual computer, storage devices, and hardware platform and so on. A technology in which an application, data storage, or operating system is abstracted away from the original underlying hardware or software is called virtualization. Virtualization uses a software layer namely hypervisor to emulate the hardware.
What is Virtual Reality ?
Virtual Reality (VR) is the next frontier from smartphones and computers, jockeying to dominate the IT world. VR is an imitation of reality created through a computer-generated environment that gives an experience of a different world. In technical terms, the VR is the simulation of a three-dimensional image that can be interacted in a seemingly real or physical way by a person through special electronic equipment, such as a VR headset embedded with a screen or gloves fitted with sensors.
