Parallels releases Raspberry Pi RDP client

By

A Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client for the Raspberry Pi has been released by Parallels, allowing the low-cost hardware to be used to present virtual desktops.

Parallels acquired 2X Software earlier this year, and the Parallels X2 Remote Application Server (RAS) can deliver complete virtual desktops or individual applications to a wide range of device platforms including Chromebook, Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS, Windows Phone and HTML5 browsers.

The latest development is an adaptation of the Linux client for use with the low-cost (around $50) Raspberry Pi board.

A screen, keyboard, mouse, power supply and case must be added to turn the board into a thin client, but it's still relatively cheap.

"With more than five million units shipped since its 2012 launch, Raspberry Pi is the new kid on the IT block, but the use of this small and revolutionary device has been limited to Linux and web applications so far," said Parallels 2X marketing director Giorgio Bonuccelli.

"Parallels 2X RAS offers the unique opportunity to deliver corporate Windows applications and remote desktops on this low-cost, credit-card-sized computer.

"The Parallels 2X RAS Client transforms Raspberry Pi into a fully operational workstation, allowing any organisation to integrate it into its environment."

Parallels 2X RAS features easy setup, print redirection, server and gateway load balancing, and Windows client management.

A free trial version lasts for 30 days and supports up to 50 concurrent users. If registered, be used by three concurrent users after the trial period ends.
