New Request for Parallels


 Parallels RAS makes VDI solutions quick to deploy, easy to manage, and affordable.

In today’s ever-evolving working landscape, designing the perfect digital workspace is crucial to enabling a productive and efficient hybrid and remote workforce. Parallels RAS is an innovative platform that seamlessly integrates your existing virtualisation strategy, providing a centralised management console for administrators and a secure virtual environment for end users.


With Parallels RAS, employees can access their work applications and data from any device or location while administrators can maintain control and security over the entire system. Awingu, a solution previously distributed by Renaissance, was acquired by Alludo in 2021 to enhance its portfolio of remote application and desktop delivery solutions. The integration of Awingu’s browser-based workplace platform with Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) enables secure access to legacy and cloud applications from any device without the need for VPN or RDP connections.


Renaissance are thrilled to partner with Parallels  and to distribute their innovative solutions to resellers throughout Ireland.
