Almost everyone who uses a Mac for work should have heard of Parallels Desktop for Mac; the great piece of software that essentially allows you to use Windows on your Mac without the need to reboot. With the launch of Windows 10 as well as the upcoming release of OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac is looking primed to take the software to new levels.....
So, why should you consider thinking about running Parallels Desktop 11?
It’s a good question, and one we’re going to explore over the next couple of weeks. Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac was only released today, so keep an eye on this blog post for updates as we give you the heads up on what’s new, and what’s going to change the way you use your Mac.
On top of this, an eagerly awaited Travel Mode also comes included with the latest release, which sees battery life extended by 25% by switching off power-hungry resources when not plugged in. Improvements in working with Boot Camp partitions should be music to the ears of those still stuck in re-boot cycles, and potentially allows them to give Boot Camp the boot.
The Enterprise Edition has now been renamed as ‘Business Edition’, and brings with it the new Parallels License Management Portal. This lets IT departments administer licences, as well as allowing them to control and manage end-user virtual machines. Parallels are enthusiastic about the new portal, promising that it will provide IT administrators with vital information; from usage statistics and licence expirations, to real-time visibility into licensing activities.
