An excellent, simple interface for our customers; allows use of any browser on any platform

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case of this solution is to publish and make available applications for customers. I'm a customer of Parallels and a data center engineer and freelancer.

Pros and Cons

  • "Simplicity of the interface is a valuable feature."
  • "If the solution crashes, then all the customers connected through that agent, lose their session."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend having some type of consultant or architect, somebody with experience to know the best way to implement, because we did have to make a few changes after the fact, once we discovered some things. The documentation is pretty good. We didn't have the benefit of setting up a dev environment, but if somebody could, I would highly suggest they do that. If that's possible, I think in a pretty short space of time people would have the knowledge they needed to deploy it to production.

Good price, good performance, and easy to use

What is our primary use case?

We are using it through the ProLiant ERP solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its price and ease of use are the most valuable. It is simple and has good performance."
  • "Generally, it is a very good solution. The main thing that I would improve is their presence here in Mexico. They don't have strong local support here in Mexico. They should have a worldwide presence so that we don't have to do everything through the people in the US. The initial setup was a little bit complex because we were migrating from Citrix. For customers who are migrating from another platform like VMware or Citrix, it would be great if they can provide an automated migration solution."

What other advice do I have?

To use it, it is important that you have a requirement to deploy on the cloud. It is not the right solution for on-premises deployments. It is the right solution for cloud deployments. It has a very affordable price and the highest capabilities. It is really good. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
