Frame on Nutanix AHVΒΆ

You can host your applications, desktops, and user data within your own private cloud using Nutanix AHV infrastructure with Frame. To use your Nutanix AHV cluster, you will deploy a Cloud Connector Appliance (CCA) which enables Frame Platform to communicate with Prism Central and Prism Element on your Nutanix AHV cluster. The Frame Platform leverages Nutanix AHV infrastructure to enable a rich array of enterprise-grade features:

  • High Availability (HA) configuration

  • Proxy server support (authenticated and unauthenticated)

  • Instance definition including vGPU configurations


Support for Cloud Connector Appliance (CCA) 2.x will be deprecated as of October 31, 2020. Existing CCA 2.x customers will need to upgrade to CCA 3.0 as soon as possible. Instructions for upgrading the CCA can be found here.

The ISO file for CCA 3.0 can be downloaded from the Nutanix Downloads Portal.

As part of the upgrade process, customers will also need to configure new firewall rules and proxy servers to allow for the new FQDNs required by CCA 3.0. A complete list of required FQDNs for CCA 3.0 can be found in our network requirements documentation.
