Parallels Remote Application Server 19.3 has major changes for Image Management (Template Versioning and provisioning Updates).
Efficiently managing images is an essential aspect for organizations of any magnitude.
Administrators can ensure seamless operations by creating multiple versions of the same Remote Application Server template which is used as a “Golden Image” for provisioning users’ virtual machines (VMs) for Remote Desktop Session Hosts, VDIs, and Azure Virtual Desktop environments.
The versioning capability allows for validating new versions before implementing them in production, ease of rollback to previous versions, and the ability to assign distinct versions to different host pools for different user personas. In 19.3, template versioning is supported for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper V, Microsoft Azure, and Azure Virtual Desktop.
Other providers, including Amazon EC2, Scale Computing, and Nutanix AHV, will support template versioning in the following updates.
In 19.3 when the template changes are saved and exit maintenance, the console gives a popup to create versioning.
