GENERAL NUTANIX FRAME REQUIREMENT

Nutanix Frame is VDI solution from Nutanix and work as a desktop-as-a -service, allow to access your app from any location anytime from the web browsers or client.

There are several key differences:

  • Unlike traditional VDI brokers (e.g., Citrix, VMware), Frame is built for the cloud, web scale, and multi-tenancy from the start.
  • Frame is a service; it can not run workloads that are not connected to the hosted service.
  • Citrix Cloud and Horizon Cloud implementations require complicated setup and are hard to deploy. They also have significant overhead on each cluster.
  • Frame can manage all your desktops, hosted on private and public infrastructure, from a single administrative user interface.
