The Nutanix® Frame® Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution that allows administrators to create pools of non-persistent desktops and applications for use by internal and external users. When used on one of the public cloud infrastructures – AWS®, Azure® or GCP® clouds – this service can scale out very quickly and increase an organization's capacity to support a variety of use cases

One use case provides applications for training or tradeshow/conference demonstration purposes on a temporary basis.This use case could become important to close all the active sessions on a Frame account to allow deprovisioning of the cloud resources. This blog will step you through how the Frame admin API can be used to accomplish this objective via a PowerShell script.

Welcome to Part 3 of the “Top 5 DaaS Mistakes and How to Avoid Them” series!

While customers would love nothing more than to consume virtual apps and desktops as a commodity service, the truth is that even in 2021, there are a number of design considerations that ultimately determine whether your Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) implementation is successful or not.

To paint the bigger picture, the following topics have (and will) be covered in this blog series:

In this blog post, we discuss the concept of data locality--what it is, why it's important, and how to avoid mistakes regarding it as it relates to designing, and implementing your DaaS environment.

For me, end user computing (EUC) is more than just a transformative technology. I find it personally gratifying to see so many customers, partners, competitors, friends, and even my own 3 kids getting work done and succeeding with EUC solutions. I love listening to their challenges, guiding them with advice, and sharing insights on how EUC is developing and can help them meet their goals. EUC is HOT and is leading the way!

I recently put all of this and more into my EUC Vision keynote talk for the EUC Tech Summit, the zero-fluff event designed by and for EUC geeks and visionaries. I talk about how EUC is changing how we Get Work Done, especially in light of recent EUC technology developments. I talk about how we are moving towards “Workspace 2025” and also lay out the Nutanix EUC vision for getting us there. My keynote, as well as all of the other sessions from the Summit, are now available on-demand.

As overall public cloud adoption continues to increase, cloud services adoption and revenue will naturally increase as well. Due to the massive shift toward telework as a result of COVID-19, the Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) market is expected to be one of the fastest growing cloud services—Gartner expects DaaS to grow over 95% YOY in 2020 and over 62% YOY in 2021.

Organizations are now focused on evaluating and implementing solutions that will not only help them address the new normal in a post-COVID world, but also provide them with the nimbleness to quickly adapt to whatever changes the future of work may bring.

Google Cloud and Nutanix have been working together for several years to enable the best possible user experience for apps and desktops that are streamed from the cloud. Nutanix Xi Frame integrates directly with Chrome Browser, Chrome OS, Google Drive, Sign in with Google, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). And now, beyond the technical integrations, both of our customer-facing organizations are collaborating closely to work with our joint customers to enable their desktop and application virtualization initiatives.

As part of an expansion of our partnership this summer, Nutanix will partner with Google Cloud to help address the surge in demand for work-from-home solutions with cloud-based delivery of desktops and apps with Xi Frame.

  • What does a day in the life of an end user working in Frame look like?
  • What tasks does a Frame administrator do on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis to support 100s or 1000s of users?
  • What is a Super Admin and how does this “Super Woman” or “Super Man” manage Frame tenants across the globe?
  • What are the Customer, Organization and Account entities in a multi-tenant setup?
  • How does one connect a cloud subscription and how can one analyze usage?

These and many more great questions will be answered in three training videos - as easy as 1-2-3!

Frame started out during the early days of cloud computing, learning to adapt to rapid changes and building features to meet the needs of our many unique customers. We weren't just built during early public cloud development, Frame was built on the public cloud and has always taken an agile development and delivery approach -- anticipating customer demands and acting quickly to provide new solutions using the latest technology innovations.

Since Frame was acquired by Nutanix in August of 2018, we've continued to make some impressive changes to our Desktop as a Service (DaaS) platform. Customers now have the option to choose from 3 major players in public cloud: AWS, Microsoft Azure, and (more recently) Google Cloud Platform. They can also run virtual applications and desktops powered by Frame in their own private cloud, on-premises with Nutanix AHV.

One part of our collective shared experience of the last few weeks has been watching as one event after the other has been cancelled. Massive trade shows, conferences and events that have been running continuously for decades were all of a sudden… gone. HIMSS, NAB, SXSW, Google Next, Facebook F8, Adobe Summit, Apple WWDC, the Olympics...the list goes on and on. This left attendees, event planners, marketers, and companies with a huge void and the big question: what do we do now?
