Scale Computing and Parallels collaborate

New Parallels RAS support for Scale Computing’s KVM-based hypervisor allows enterprises to simplify VDI deployment by provisioning and delivering VMs on the fly.

Scale Computing says that the KVM-based hypervisor in our HC3 product family is now fully supported byParallels Remote Application Server 17 (Parallels RAS). When combined with Parallels RAS, Scale Computing HC3 enables administrators to rapidly provision and manage virtual machines (VM) thin clones centrally from Parallels RAS Console to make VDI solutions faster, more affordable and easier to use.

Parallels RAS automatically generates and deploys VDI desktops on demand, enabling administrators to create and deploy guest VMs on the fly and create a master virtual desktop once and rapidly clone hundreds of virtual desktops on their HC3 Cluster. They also can quickly and securely deliver Windows applications and desktops with a consistent user experience on any device and from any location.

“Parallels is proud to work with Scale Computing to make VDI deployments faster and easier than ever before,” said Nick Dobrovolskiy, Parallels’ Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support. “The combination of Parallels RAS and Scale Computing HC3 will help administrators meet the virtual desktop needs of their users with less stress and more focus on the things that matter the most in their computing environments.”

Scale Computing HC3 is a hyper-converged platform that combines servers, storage and virtualisation capabilities in a single appliance to provide a data centre in a box. The platform works exceptionally well in VDI environments across various verticals, including education and health care for a wide range of use cases from task workers to power users requiring a simple, secure and low-maintenance option to traditional desktop PCs.

“Scale Computing HC3 is designed to make it easier for administrators to deploy, manage and grow their VDI environments,” said Dave Demlow, VP Product Management and Support at Scale Computing. “The addition of Parallels RAS support advances this benefit by leaps and bounds with its ability to provision VDI VMs on a moment’s notice and rapidly clone as many as needed.”

Atos and IQM have published the findings from the first global IDC study on the current status and future of quantum computing in high performance computing (HPC). Commissioned by IQM and Atos, the study reveals that 76% of HPC data centers worldwide plan to use quantum computing by 2023, and that 71% plan to move to on-premises quantum computing by 2026. IQM is part of Atos Scaler, an accelerator program creating partnerships with the start-up ecosystem.
