Unveils RDP client for Raspberry Pi.

Parallels is enabling organisations to use any application remotely and use full remote desktops published by Parallels 2X Remote Application Server (RAS).

The company has released the first RDP client for Raspberry Pi to this end.

Parallels 2X RAS working with Raspberry Pi is said to be a low-cost tool for IT managers to increase employee efficiency with cross-platform application delivery.

This announcement empowers businesses across a range of industries that can leverage low-cost clients, virtual desktops, and applications.

"Parallels 2X RAS offers the unique opportunity to deliver corporate Windows applications and remote desktops on this low-cost, credit-card-sized computer," said Parallels 2X marketing director Giorgio Bonuccelli." The Parallels 2X RAS Client transforms Raspberry Pi into a fully operational workstation, allowing any organization to integrate it into its environment."

Easy to use and implement

Easy to use and implement, Parallels 2X RAS can be up and running in minutes.

The new release includes auto-configured features such as printing redirection that enables users to print directly from any device without the administrator having to install drivers on the server.

Performance and reliability are ensured as server load balancing distributes workload to servers based on available resources.

Parallels 2X RAS includes Windows client management that allows IT administrators to complete several tasks such as take control of Windows devices and set passwords.

The solution also allows administrators to generate reports that monitor RDP and server activity.

Other features include gateway load balancing that guarantees constant access to virtual resources by distributing connections between two or more gateways.
