What are the Hardware Requirements recommended to Run Parallels Remote Application Server?

  • Parallels Remote Application Server 15.5

The server hardware requirements to install and configure Parallels Remote Application Server can vary according to end-user requirements.

Typically for an installation of 30 users or under Parallels Remote Application Server can be installed on one high specification server and the resources published directly from it. For more than 30 users, multiple servers may be required.

The below should be considered during the planning stage of a Parallels Remote Application Server deployment:

  • High specification servers should be used, consisting of multiple CPU cores, a high specification disk transfer rate and plenty of RAM
  • Virtual machine hypervisors can be used as long as the resources required by the end-users are calculated accordingly.
  • Terminal servers should not exceed 50 users per terminal server in usage.
  • The RAS Secure Gateway should not exceed 200 users per server for incoming connections This depends on the following:

    • If connection mode from client is set to gateway mode.
    • If HTML5 or RAS Webportal is use
    • If Wyse thin clients are used
    • If other https services are being tunnelled through the gateway

    All the above increase the load on the gateway and need to be accounted for.

  • When planning VDI hypervisor resource requirements, extra requirements such as RAM usage per virtual machine and disk space should be taken into account.
