Unified Integration
with Parallels RAS

Parallels® RAS integrates and extends Azure Virtual Desktop capabilities by providing organizations with unified workload and resource management. Parallels RAS configures and maintains Azure Virtual Desktop workloads and other resources alike, supporting private, hybrid or multi-cloud deployments for ultimate flexibility and end-user productivity.

What is Azure Virtual Desktop?

Azure Virtual Desktop is an application and desktop virtualization service that runs on Microsoft Azure. Azure Virtual Desktop enables access to applications and desktops hosted on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH), including Windows 10 multi-session hosts.

“Parallels RAS integration with Azure Virtual Desktop ensures optimized service delivery while providing a unified end-user experience. It simplifies Azure Virtual Desktop deployment and provides centrally managed capabilities, including auto-scaling, FSLogix Profile Containers configuration and automated VM image optimization.”
