What is Xi Frame?

Xi Frame is a secure cloud platform that lets enterprises and independent software vendors (ISVs) deliver applications, desktops, and software-defined workspaces to users. Users only require a connected device with a modern web browser. There are no clients, downloads, or plugins to install. It is a public cloud-native platform that has recently been adapted for use with private cloud (AHV) contexts. It is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider-agnostic. Organizations can run on Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or their on-premises Nutanix AHV cluster through a single management console. Using Xi Frame, organizations can automatically provision and deprovision capacity worldwide and across IaaS providers to adjust to fluctuations in end-user demand.

You can read more about Xi Frame in the Nutanix product solution brief.

End User Guide

Refer to this section if you are accessing applications that have been provided to you by your administrator or if this is your first experience using Frame as an administrator – anyone using Frame at all should read through this section to understand how to work with and run applications streamed from Frame in a browser.

Customer Administration

If you are administering an account that you wish to share with others in your organization, then you will still need to read through the “End User Guide” section to understand the basics of a Frame account. Proceed to this section when you are ready to learn how to onboard and publish apps to share with teams, manage your environment, and more.

Developer Hub

For developers using Frame Platform, this separate set of documentation covers Frame APIs that you can use to create custom web workflows.
