Traditional VDI solutions, like Citrix or VMware, were designed for a non-elastic, single-tenant datacenter infrastructure. Reimagining end user computing in the cloud required radical departure: new architecture, new devops principles, and a new vision. Frame was born in the cloud, which is the key reason why everything fits perfectly.
Each Frame subsystem – from connection broker to identity management gateway – uses modern, high performance, cloud-native tools. The result is a superior user experience, easy administration, and dramatically lower operational cost.
Frame is an ultimate security solution: with apps running in the cloud and not on your computer, your data never leaves the secure datacenter. As soon as your work is done, the session is terminated and the virtual machine you used is destroyed. This prevents security breaches and unauthorized access.
The encrypted Frame protocol guarantees secure communication between your device and the cloud. The two networks are isolated, and the Frame protocol is the only thing bridging the air gap between them.
Our experts across security, devops, and support teams follow strict processes to ensure integrity of your system. In August 2016, Frame achieved SOC 2 certification. We run regular penetration tests and work with third-party security specialists and our infrastructure partners, like AWS and Microsoft Azure, to keep our systems safe and secure
More than 80% of our customers are looking for a multi-cloud solution. Not surprising: more options means more flexibility. Frame was built to seamlessly connect resources from AWS and Azure, with the support for Google Cloud coming in 2018.
Here are some things to consider when configuring your Frame system:
LATENCY. Where are your users? In most cases, the closest region will provide the best performance.
PERFORMANCE. Do your workloads require special resources, like GPUs? Both AWS and Azure offer multiple graphics options (g2, g3, and elastic GPUs on AWS, NV-series on Azure).
COST. Looking to run a large number of users with non-demanding apps? Burstable AWS t2 or Azure B2 instance types provide great price-performance ratio. And if you’re worried that AWS is charging in full hour increments for Windows instances, switch to Azure for minute accurate billing.
The future of end-user computing is here
And that future is in the cloud. Think about it: despite the rise of Web and mobile, thousands of critical applications still run only on Windows PCs. More than ever, we need tools that work together, seamlessly. With Frame, Windows apps run in the cloud, so now you can control precisely what and when you want to run.
Frame is built for powerful cloud servers around the world, and it lets you interact with your computing environment in completely new ways. Provision five thousand secure workstations anywhere in the world in under an hour? Done. Real time collaboration? You bet. Full control of your data? Absolutely. This is Frame. And this is where enterprise end-user computing is headed
