Easy remote deployment, very stable and easy to scale

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for remote access. We are selling the product, and we have a system integrator and channel partners, with whom we are building around this. We also have technical capabilities to support the customers. Right now, whatever we are doing, it's primarily for either your CAD applications or ERP applications which clients want to use remotely. There are certain academic institutes as well that would need this kind of access. Their applications are more from a CAD perspective, and we are exploring more options right now as we diversify our customer base.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's great that the total deployment can happen completely remotely."
  • "One challenge we do notice is that the application is limited to Windows servers only. If a customer has a Linux server, things get complicated. They should open it up a bit to be more compatible with different types of servers."

What other advice do I have?

We are a product distributor. We're an official distributor of Parallels in India. The solution is very easy to use, and as long as a company gets their requirements right, they shouldn't have any problems. Implementation is easy too. Companies shouldn't be afraid to try it out. Overall, so far, we've not had many challenges. I don't see any reason for having any challenges at this point in time. We get support from the marketing team of Parallels. They have a wonderful setup. Their process is very good. We get phenomenal help when we need it from the marketing team when we need assistance…
