Deliver apps to any device at a fraction of the cost of traditional VDI solutions
Watch the recording of our recent webinar and learn how university IT can deliver any app to any device thanks to AppsAnywhere's integration with Parallels RAS (Remote Application Server).
Parallels RAS integration
Parallels RAS is a remote application and virtual desktop solution. By allowing software to run on a remote Windows server, we can deliver apps through AppsAnywhere using either the local Parallels client (available for both Windows and macOS) or the HTML5 client, which can deliver apps to any device running an HTML5-compatible browser.
Thanks to this integration, AppsAnywhere can deliver Windows app to any device, including iOS, macOS, Android and Chromebooks! And we can also use Parallels RAS technology to deliver desktops to students, too.
With the release of AppsAnywhere v2.3 we've built a deep integration with Parallels RAS, enabling IT to deliver both apps and desktops, as well as supporting Chromebooks with HTML5 delivery.
VDI was set to be the next big revolution in virtualization. But for universities, it failed to meet the demanding needs of students. We look at alternatives to VDI for application and software delivery.
Like many other universities, Pitt State originally chose VDI as the best solution to deploy apps to students. After realizing that performance is patchy and costs are astronomical, the university sought another technology.
