Parallels provides Apple Retina display support

Renton-based Parallels, which produces software that makes it possible to run a Windows operating system on a Mac, announced that both Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac and Parallels Mobile now support Apple’s Retina display on the newest MacBook Pro and iPad.

Parallels says the update allows high-resolution Windows apps and files to take advantage of the Retina display.

Parallels is a desktop virtualization and cloud services company that, while probably best known to consumers for its virtualization software allowing them to run Windows on Mac computers, also provides server virtualization for small and mid-sized companies as well as management software to remotely manage websites and a service to help companies provision, bundle and bill for cloud services, including Microsoft’s. The company has about 850 employees with revenues of more than $100 million.

Its Desktop 7 for Mac can currently run several operating systems including Windows 7 and Windows 8 Release Preview. The company says its Parallels Desktop for Mac will be updated to provide support for final versions of Apple’s OS X Mountain Lion and Microsoft’s Windows 8 after they are launched.

Parallels Mobile app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch allows users to remotely access and control their Macs, including Windows applications and files.
