Discover What's Possible with Frame


Deploy in hours, not months

The robust Frame automation platform streamlines deployment and allows customers to be production-ready in a matter of hours.

Access from any device

Users can access their Frame virtual apps and desktops from any device with a browser. There’s no need to install any agents or clients.

No more costly upgrades

The Frame cloud control plane is managed and maintained by Nutanix as a service. Core Frame services on VMs are also upgraded automatically.


Support graphically intensive apps

Frame supports a wide range of GPU-enabled instances in public cloud (NVIDIA and AMD) as well as vGPU profiles on Nutanix AHV.

Seamless audio and videoconferencing

The next-generation Frame Remoting Protocol lets users pick their audio and videoconferencing solution natively in-session for an HD experience.

4K resolution and 60 frames per second

Users can enjoy their Nutanix Frame session on multiple 4K monitors and at high-resolution speeds up to 60 frames per second.

Use Cases

Simple and secure hybrid work and learning

Hybrid work and learning offers flexibility and convenience for employees, contractors, students, and faculty. Unfortunately, it also introduces challenges and risks for IT, such as securing access to sensitive data, supporting BYOD, and ensuring a consistent user experience. Nutanix Frame desktop-as-a-service gives users access to desktops, apps and data in a virtual workspace – just like a web app through a browser.

Streamline business process outsourcing

Business process outsourcing (BPO) ensures flexibility and cost-efficiency in times of rapid growth by allowing businesses to procure specialized skills to sustain a global presence. It also creates challenges involving the onboarding and offboarding of contractors. Nutanix Frame streamlines this process by securing browser-based apps and data that can be accessed from any location by personal devices used by contractors.

Case study: Acumen

Modernize Windows applications

As businesses flock to software-as-a-service models, independent software vendors (ISVs) that develop Windows apps are struggling to adapt and respond to the demand for SaaS. Nutanix Frame enables ISVs to quickly SaaS-ify traditional Windows apps so they can be accessed like web apps through a browser. Frame is also widely used by ISVs to support secure software development, customer beta testing and software trials.

"There’s still a lot of uncertainty around whether students will be back in the classroom, working remotely, or a hybrid of the two going forward. With Nutanix Frame, our students will be able to continue their classes and be assured that they are not left behind."

- Chris Cummings, Director of IT, Klein Independent School District

"We have 350 people in the New York office. We were ready to drop some money to buy more VDI servers and get another 12 sessions, but it just didn’t make sense when we could use Frame and pay as we use the service, and have as many sessions as we want, instead of having all this infrastructure sitting here going to waste because it’s not being used."

- Saif Khan, Network Manager, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates

"Frame has been so easy to work with, and we’ve been able to make continuous improvements to make Monarch a world-class platform. Monarch has truly changed the way students create yearbooks, newspapers and even literary magazines. It’s been amazing to watch this vision become a reality."

- Betty Bacon, Director of Technology, Jostens
