Chromebook adoption increased by 17% in 2020… And it's on the rise.
Chromebooks are quickly gaining in popularity due to their cheap price tag sand long battery lives. They are about to get another boost as organizations look to equip employees with laptops—part of their work-from-home strategy to minimize the risk of COVID infections. While Chromebooks are ideal for remote work and learning from an economic and operational standpoint, they also have some serious limitations, one of which is access to Windows applications. One way to get around this is by lever

In 2020, a total of 20 million Chromebooks are expected to be shipped globally. That’s a 17% increase from last year’s 17 million units. Already quickly gaining in popularity due to the cheap price tag and long battery life, Chromebooks are about to get another boost as organizations look to equip employees with laptops—part of their work-from-home strategy to minimize the risk of COVID infections.

While Chromebooks are ideal for remote work and learning from an economic and operational standpoint, they also have some serious limitations, including access to Windows Applications. In this white paper, the following topics are covered:

  • How are Chromebooks being deployed?
  • What’s fueling Chromebooks’ popularity?
  • What are Chromebooks’ limitations?
  • How does VDI help overcome Chromebook limitations?
  • Why is Parallels RAS one of the best VDI solution for Chromebooks?

With virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), users can use the same applications they’re already familiar with on Chromebooks. Users don’t have to go through a steep learning curve because the applications that are delivered through VDI will look and feel just like any locally installed application.

In choosing a VDI solution for a fleet of Chromebooks, it’s important to consider not only the inherent capabilities of the VDI solution itself but also how well it integrates with Chromebooks. Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) meets both requirements.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) is an all-in-one VDI solution enabling seamless access to virtual desktops and applications on any device, anywhere, including Chromebooks.
