Pricing above is inclusive of Nutanix Product Support for Frame. Unless otherwise specified, pricing above is exclusive of required hosting infrastructure (private, public, and/or hybrid cloud), Microsoft OS and remote access entitlements (e.g. Windows VDA, RDS-CAL, RDS-SAL), third-party application licensing, and professional/managed services. Microsoft RDS-SALs are available for purchase at an additional cost for both commercial ($7 per Named User per month) and qualified educational customers ($1 per Named User per month) through Nutanix. For customers purchasing pre-paid term subscriptions, if usage exceeds subscription entitlements (a “Subscription Overage”) during any given month, Nutanix will invoice the customer directly for the overage at list price on a monthly basis.

Don't Have Your Own Infrastructure?

Nutanix offers customers the option to deploy their Frame tenant on Nutanix-managed public cloud subscriptions. Customers pay for their public cloud usage (VM and disk) via Frame IaaS Credits.

 

IaaS Credits rates vary based on public cloud and VM type. For example, it costs 12 credits for one hour of usage with an Air 4GB instance in Azure. More powerful instances consume more credits. Please see tables below for current rates. Note that instance rates are valid across all supported public cloud regions globally.

 

Note

Frame IaaS Credits are not available for our Government Platform. Frame Government Platform customers must bring their own infrastructure

Frame IaaS Credits are charged at $0.01 USD per credit for all plans. Frame IaaS Credits are consumed for all VM and disk usage incurred by customer’s Frame tenant, including: Sandbox VMs, Workload VMs, Utility Servers, Streaming Gateway Appliances (including load-balancers), Enterprise Profiles, Personal Disks, back-ups, etc. VM usage is metered based on full-hour increments and disk usage is metered based on number of provisioned GB per hour. Public cloud networking costs are included in the hourly VM usage rates. Pre-paid IaaS Credits are valid as long as your Frame subscription remains active. If you cancel or fail to renew your Frame subscription, any unused IaaS Credits will be forfeited with no right of refund.
