Overview

Parallels RAS is a great way of providing users with access to apps and desktops that wouldn't usually be available in their current environment, either due to technical limitations, security concerns or policy/licensing restrictions. While RAS offers a great range of flexibility in terms of device compatibility, it is not always the best delivery technology to use due to its reliance on backend server resources. By delivering services using RAS through AppsAnywhere, you ensure the best of both worlds by only utilizing the more costly delivery solution in environments where no other options are available. 

Getting Started

This documentation is purely concerned with connecting an existing RAS infrastructure to AppsAnywhere and configuring AppsAnywhere to start delivering resources made available through RAS. It is assumed therefore that you already have a RAS infrastructure setup, configured and able to deliver resources through the standard means (without AppsAnywhere). It is outside of the scope of this documentation to go into how to setup RAS in the first place. 

Connecting to a Parallels Environment

Before you can use any of the Parallels delivery methods, you need to connect AppsAnywhere to your Parallels environment. The following articles in this section will help you manage the connection between AppsAnywhere and Parallels RAS.

Adding Delivery Methods

Once AppsAnywhere is connected to your Parallels RAS environment, you are ready to start delivering resources. The following articles in this section will help you add delivery methods in AppsAnywhere to start delivering resources.
