Real World Applications

Parallels offers a complete range of solutions for providing virtualized Windows servers.  By combining the high density capabilities of Parallels Containers for Windows together with Parallels Cloud Server and Parallels Cloud Storage you can deploy a range of virtualized Windows servers that are optimized for your service offerings.

Windows Containers

Parallels Containers sets the hosting industry standard for profitable, secure and flexible Windows VPS and cloud server offerings. Parallels Containers for Windows ensures you can:

  • Quickly provide secure, fully isolated, completed, configured Windows servers as OS containers
  • Maximize hardware investments by increasing virtual server ratios, reducing costs and improving profitability
  • Automate near-instant provisioning and on-the-fly modification of VPS and cloud server plans
  • Lower operational costs by reducing the administrative burden of day-to-day operations

Windows Virtual Machines

While containers provide the highest density virtualized servers, some service providers choose to deploy Windows VPS services using hypervisor technology to allow their customers to maintain and manage their own Windows operating system.  Parallels Cloud Server includes Parallels Hypervisor which can be used to provide high performance Windows VMs.  Parallels Hypervisor uses Parallels Cloud Storage to deliver high availability Windows VMs.

High Availability Windows Containers

Parallels Containers for Windows can be deployed together with Parallels Cloud Server and Parallels Cloud Storage to enable high density, high availability Windows VPS servers.  By deploying Windows containers inside a Parallels Cloud Server hypervisor you can leverage redundant, resilient cloud storage and ensure high reliability and service uptime.

Virtualized Hosted Application Services

Hosted applications services such as those that support web or application workloads benefit from the isolation, density and performance enhancements delivered with Parallels Containers for Windows virtualization. Hosted applications require application isolation combined with high server densities to support a successful business model, which can be fulfilled through the use of templates as well as the management toolsets that arrive come with Parallels Containers for Windows.

Hosted Desktop

Containers-based virtualization is well-suited for hosted desktop environments where many similar desktops are hosted on the same server. Containers also provide benefits in disk space and memory conservation in hosted desktop environments, erasing the need for massive horizontal scaling of resources to support large numbers of desktops. KDDI, one of the largest telecommunications providers in Japan, relies on Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to deliver hosted virtual desktops as a key component of its Multi Cloud brand of cloud services.
