Parallels puts Windows on Chromebooks

By

Virtualisation specialist Parallels has worked with Google to create Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise.

Said to be the world's first desktop virtualisation solution that enables full-featured Windows applications to run in virtual machines on Chromebooks without rebooting or an internet connection, Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise will be released later this year.

In contrast, Parallels' existing Remote Application Server and Access products allow Chromebooks and other devices to remotely access applications running on servers and computers, but require live internet connections.

Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise will allow IT administrators to provision Chromebooks with Windows virtual machines and Windows applications, using familiar automated corporate Windows image deployments and remote management tools.

When Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise ships this spring, it will be available through selected Chromebook manufacturers and retailers.

"Parallels Desktop for Chromebook Enterprise will make it simple for IT administrators to provision Chromebooks with Windows virtual machines and the required full-featured Windows applications employees need to run," said Parallels senior vice president of engineering and customer support Nick Dobrovolsiky.

"IT admins will be able to easily manage familiar automated corporate Windows image deployments they prepare, provision, and automatically provide to their employees. Those virtual machines are fully capable Windows installations; admins can install applications, manage them remotely, and support users with familiar tools — just like they do with physical Windows PCs."

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
